As a teenager it might seem like the world is against you and that it’s hard to accomplish any of your goals. You might have big dreams but there are likely many impediments. Perhaps teachers or parents have told you to be less enthusiastic because “you’re just a teen.” Maybe you don’t even try because you think you’re “just a teen.”
However, being a teen doesn’t mean you can’t accomplish a lot. And, I don’t even mean laying the groundwork for success as an adult. Even right now, as a teenager, you can live and achieve many of your dreams, whether it involves making money, becoming more popular, losing weight, becoming famous, etc.
Look at people like Lorde, Justin Bieber, and countless other young musicians, actors, and teen entrepreneurs. They found success in the present, not letting their status as “just a teen” deter them from finding their success. While being a teenager might mean you’ll encounter more difficulties, obstacles happen at any age and situation. If you have a goal or a desire to accomplish something, then the time to start working on it is right now.
I’ve known lots of teens who had big goals fall by the wayside because they didn’t put in the effort or have the necessary passion for what they wanted. They let the fact that they were “just a teen” stop them from believing in themselves and getting the motivation for success.
So, don’t be “just a teen” since most teens don’t reach their goals and live their dreams. You be the teen who is different and succeeds…beyond your wildest dreams.
