I am so proud that you are following your dreams and keep trying to push the status quo. They say ‘nobody really takes you seriously until you are 25’ but you doing everything in your power to prove them wrong. Unfortunately, though, this is true. You won’t be taken seriously until you are 25. But, every little thing you’re doing to try to prove them wrong will help you so much in the future.
You’ve been working so hard on your book Alex and John’s Scientific Adventures and have done a great cost analysis of materials for printing. Enjoy your book release party! It’s coming up in a few months and will be a day to remember.
Be thankful for all everybody has done and will do for you. You will be so humbled to reconnect with teachers from your elementary school days at your book release party and even more surprised to see that even though you were one person in a class of thirty in just one school year out of their teaching career, they still remember you, and care about you, and will even bring your old school projects for you to sign.
You have already started your MBA and I promise yes, one day, school does end. I know you’re quite concerned. And still, even though you aren’t yet 25 and taken seriously, you are building a great foundation for future success.
Little do you know, but by doing the cost analysis for your book, you realized how great of a tool Excel really is. With your new financial background, you will become determined and decide to create your entire personal accounting system within Excel and will become an Excel expert.
Life isn’t always perfect though. Where there are hills, there must also be valleys. Remember to keep your head up through all of them and keep pushing on as you always do because one of those times, it will really pay off.
There will be times when you are so fed up with work, bored out of your mind at home, and just contemplating starting from scratch. Keep pushing. All of the hard work you’ve done along the way will pay off. I know, people always say that, but it’s true!
You will bring a copy of your book and your personal finance spreadsheet to an interview for a job that you so desperately want because your current work situation is so stressful it’s made you physically ill.
And just when you are ready to give up, you’ll get a call back and you get the job that will allow you to really start enjoying your life. All of the hard work you’re putting in along the way prior to turning 25 will pay off.
Be proud of the foundation you’ve built, your determination, and your positive attitude. Never give up, always be humble, and take the skills you learn and use them to help others.
PS. I know you are so anxious to know if and when you will ever find someone you will fall in love with. Take a look around because the man of your dreams is right next to you but you won’t know who he is for a few more years.
