Modern times gave us access to internet where we see the world in different perspectives. The web world is too huge and full and it has affected us in a lot of ways. Some are inspired with success stories they see and get a pattern of their goals. And some have become confused of what they want to be because of a lot of things that attract their efforts of dedication.
Early 20 and we’re in what?
Yes, as young as 20s, a lot of us are in crisis of what we want to be. If asked of where you see yourself in 10 years, can you answer? Most of young adults at this age do not know yet where to go.
