Another year is here. I want to do and accomplish so many things for this 2011. I am a fresh graduate from college. Hence, I am still learning to stand on my own in the real world of life. What should I do to be able to make my dreams a reality? I want to be a successful individual someday.

Well first and foremost find a job in your chosen field and put forth every bit of effort you can to be the very best you can be at that job. Set goals, where do you want to be in 5 years, 10 years etc. Start small pick a goal like buy a new car or something along those lines and strive for it, work as hard as you can until you accomplish that goal. Look at investing everything you can early in life, the more you put away now the more you'll have when your earlier, dont plan to rely on social security it most likely wont be there when you need it so start planning your retirement young the sooner you start to invest and save the better off youll be. And most importantly prepare yourself to adapt and change with the times, dont get too set in your ways, the better you learn to adapt and change the better off youll be, and dont forget, keep learning and improving your resume. You'll be okay just start slow, and be smart about the choices you make, research things, build yourself a good career in your chosen field, the better your resume looks as you go forth the better off you'll be, get yourself a good job and stick to it, work your way up and only change employers if something better comes along. Think long and hard in the choices you make. Good luck to you and happy new year.

Thank you so much for your advice angeloglasser.. I have another problem. Unfortunately, I graduated in a degree where there are a lot of applicants, however, only a meager number of jobs relating to my profession are present. Competition among the applicants is very fierce..

I dont know which field your in, however, in my opinion what youll want to do then is specialize in something with in your field of choice that will make you desirable to potential employers and once your in work hard to prove yourself and prove the worth of your skills. Take on extra responsibilities whenever possible and be smart about the way you work. Do things logically and think outside of the box. Youll do fine.
