Tony Morgan's life-tested tips to Millennials on how to experience their future dreams.

I’ve had several conversations in recent weeks with young adults either in school or in the early days of their careers. They’ve been looking for advice from me. I guess they perceive I’ve had some success. And they obviously think I have experience. (That’s a kind way of acknowledging that I’m getting old.)

Here are some quick thoughts that might help you if you’re on the front end of your journey in life.

If I could sit down with Millennials, this is what I’d share. These are some of the basic steps that allowed me to pursue my dreams. Here are …

10 Simple Practices to Help You Experience Your Future Dreams

1. Get responsible while you’re still at home.

Don’t rely on mommy and daddy to bail you out. Don’t let them try to get you out of a bad grade. That’s your challenge. Own your schedule. Own your priorities. Own your financial responsibilities. They may help, but the goal is for you to leave home knowing how to navigate life without mommy and daddy having to step in if there’s a problem.

2. Get a job while you’re in high school.

Any job. You need to learn how to show up on time, make a boss happy and work hard to earn a paycheck … even if you don’t enjoy the job. That’s life. No matter what you will do later, you need to learn how real people work real jobs in the real world.

3. Get a degree, but don’t leave with a lot of debt.

No one owes you an education at an out-of-state school. Even if the government makes it easy for you to borrow all the money you need, go where it’s cheaper. Apply for as many scholarships as you can. Work your way through school. Too much debt will prevent you from pursuing your dreams.

    Life without a purpose
    will only leads in chaos; the first purpose for every individual is to know
    first, why am I in this world? 4
    Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine
    heart.5 Commit thy way unto the
    LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it
    to pass (Psalm 37:4-5). We are living in a competitive world, and we are seeing
    how most people have achieved everything that life can afford. Yet they were committing
    suicides; while others have lost everything known as the internal peace. This
    is simply because they have left Christ Jesus out of their lives. Man`s first
    priority is centered on this verse, and God`s work does not stop any individual
    from achieving his or her goal. Whenever we understand this; God will give us
    the WISDOM to be in control of everything that He has placed in our cares. THE
    HOPE OF HIS CALLING,” and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in
    the saints (Ephesians 1:18). The chaos here is when we teach people how to achieve everything in life, and failed to teach them how to build a very strong relationship with Christ Jesus who died for us.
