thornz Posted July 14, 2017 Share Posted July 14, 2017 Hi, When I was younger I was very ambitious and optimistic about the future, I believed I could turn things around for myself and create a fulfilling life, have a great job, active social life, nice house, cool cars and become a foster cater, being a positive role model for the children I cared for. At 30 I have achieved very few of my ambitions (does a driving licence count?) despite working very hard I can't seem to get things together. I left behind my friends and a stable cheap rented home to try and progress in life and am still trying to complete my degree 9 years after starting. I have no savings at all despite starting to organise my finances 8 years ago to get a deposit for a mortgage. I am constantly moving house (which is costly and upsetting) and job and the relationships I have drain the life out of me and never work out. My social life and life took a back seat whilst I pursued my dreams and now I'm somewhat a loner. I'm exhausted and hopeless about the future. I feel like I've sacrificed everything worthwhile and gained nothing. I need advice and encouragement on how to improve my attitude so I'm feeling enthused about pursuing my goals again and practical steps to achieve my goals. My short term goals (2-3yrs) Buy a house Finish my degree (self funded) Develop Career (self funded) Better paid job (would definitely help other goals) Basically I need a lot of money in a short timeframe. My mid term goals (5 years) Get chartered (again self funded) Get reasonably priced fun car Become self employed (contract work) My long term goals (10 years) Buy a bigger house to renovate Get married Become a foster career Obviously the short term goals are my focus, I basically need money and lots of it. I'm seriously considering selling my car to fund my next uni module fee. Link to comment
