Just about every day I post a question of the day to FB pages and twitter. It’s always interesting to see the answers I get back. I think for my personal FB page, it’s helped me to get to know people a wee bit better and they’ve gotten to know more about me too. It’s cool what you get to know about people just by asking the right question.
Here’s a question I saw floating around the web recently:
If you could give one piece of advice to a young person, what would you say?
I think about stuff like this all the time. I knew I was getting up there in years when I started saying, “Kids these days…” That being the case, kids these days are a new breed. Many younger peeps don’t seem to think further than their next breath. How else do you explain all of the TMI floating around on social media and all other parts of the internet? Oh, that’s just in my family? *hides head in shame*
Every thing is about what’s good for the here and now. The YOLO (You Only Live Once) mentality is in full force. I’m all for that in many cases. But on the off chance that today isn’t my last, I don’t want to go so hard on the whole YOLO tip that I mess up some stuff for my future.
Having said that, I would offer up this piece of advice to those younger than me.
Know your worth!
When you know your worth there are some things you just don’t do. There are some things and people you don’t deal with. Just those three words alone apply to every single area of life. Know what you’re worth in relationships, jobs, etc.
What one piece of advice would you give?
