OPEN LETTER TO US UNDER THE AGE OF 35:
We always talk about how the government has failed us.
But sometimes we underestimate the power we have to make a difference in our country. The youth makes up about 66% of the population (I do stand corrected). I mean 🤔That's lot of us who are under the age of 35.
Empowering the mind, empowers the life.
And with children it's important to start while they are young.
Teaching them that YES THEY CAN and that their success will always be dependent on them and their will regardless of their situation.
We need less young people dependent on social grants.
My solution for now is to do things different with the children who will in the next few years be the YOUTH of South Africa.
I have quite a few friends who are accountants doctors engineers radio djs etc etc and our responsibility is be the difference regardless of your line of job.
Whether you in the perfect job or not or you jobless - BE THE DIFFERENCE.
Thrive in your job and grow to the point where you expand and you can create more job opportunities.
Why not mentor a child in 2018 and impart your life lessons to them.
Even if that child is your little sister or brother or cousin or a child from your street. Find a mentee in 2018.
The awesome thing is that the knowledge your share with them they may share it with their friends and the cycle can continue of building a stronger generation of future leaders. (Please tag a friend in the comments so they read this - in 2018 us the young people need to take over). In the words of @barackobama "We are the ones we have been waiting for, we are the change that we seek"
One of the job that should be paid more has to be being a teacher. And there is a teacher in ALL of us.
On my blog (Link in bio) I recently interviewed an outstanding teacher Please do read it. .
