I met with my sister's friend today.
A tall guy, abundantly wealthy from what i've heard, very good looking too.
But what really caught my attention was his maturity.
I sat in the back seat of his car while he picked us up to go home. Our car had problems and he was conveniently nearby. He talked to my sister's boyfriend about studies and all while i sat there quietly, listening to them. Everything he said, i could get a strong aura of confidence and determination. He had already planed his life 30 years into the future(written down) and been going for countless talks and meeting people that can help him in his future. He recently met a woman from Bloomberg during a convention and had gotten advice from her about stocks and also a few matured stock players.
Where am i going to be in 5 years?? Not to mention even 30 years.
Yes i know i am still young but can i even afford a few years of slacking off? People are worrying about jobs, studies and the economy and where am i, worrying about my relationship. Such a stupid priority now that I'm thinking about it. Very very stupid indeed. Even talking to a close friend yesterday, he told me about priorities in life and how most people are prioritizing the wrong things. Did not realize how I'm one of those hopeless ones. I'm doing all the stupid things, posting stupid pictures on facebook and thinking about popularity.
By 21, few years from now. I set a goal for myself. I will get my priorities straight. I will know what I'm going to be in the next years, I will become selfish or not, less selfless, I will strive to achieve my life goals. I know I cant change myself over night but I will make some changes in my life from this minute on.
I will own my own business, I will enjoy what i do,
And I will never be burden by financial constraints.
With or without a partner, i will be happy with my life.
My definition of success.
Future comes before relationships.
A promise I made to myself,
