First, write down what you perceive your obstacles to be. Next, determine if these obstacles are real or imagined. Are they true barriers like not having the money to go to college or are they imagined like thinking you aren’t smart enough. If they are imagined, talk to a friend or counselor about changing your thinking! If they are real, explore different options like a cheaper school, a work-study program or night school so you can work during the day. Be creative with your thinking and your strategies!
