Find something you’re good at, and when you’ve tried it out and found that you don’t want to do it the rest of your life, find something that you love. If you can afford to make the transition, or just need to take a new path in the same direction as before, then do it. Afterwards, try something new that might excite you but that you wouldn’t have thought of years ago.
Be respectful to your coworkers; be appreciative of your managers and supervisors. And never forget that you represent someone– whether it’s your mom, company, or church. So behave accordingly, because a small mistake could cost you everything.
Lastly, don’t give up. There are going to be challenges down the road, and those obstacles may sometimes take the form of people or finances, but they can be overcome. Anything really is possible, but you can’t expect it to be handed to you. Drive yourself crazy, stay up late, and go for it.
