If you're a visual person like me, then you'll three simple things to get a jump start on your life: 1) a wall, 2) washable markers, and 3) dedication to spend time on yourself! Creating a you wall/life plan/values/goals will help you make those thoughts into actions by actually visualizing it.
Use your wall to find your passion, become clear of your goals, and create a life plan to do the things you need to do to become the person you want to be.
People will always criticize, judge, and tell you that you need to be a certain way. But being like everyone else is boring!
And the last thing this world needs is another boring person.
Reframe your perception of criticism and own yourself.
