It is International Youth week. I am excited about being a youth although this season has its challenges, here are a few lessons I’ve picked along the way:

  • You go as far as you can see. Not with your eyes, but with your mind.
  • Have a vision.
  • Invest in yourself- Reskill, Retool.
  • There is nothing like Perfection.
  • Network- As cliché’ as sounds, use human interactions, it’s not all about systems.
  • Speak Up. Even if your voice shakes.
  • Everything you do from conviction bears fruit.
  • The confident people take their space.
  • Do you honey, the world will adjust.
  • If you are not invited to the table, make your own goddamn table
  • Trust your process.
  • The internet is a tricky place. Remember Garbage in, garbage out.
  • Do it scared. Do it knowing that you will not know everything. Do it even though you don’t feel ready. Do it without perfection, whatever you do, take the leap and go for it.
  • Stay prayed up.
