The fu­ture is all about you

CLEO (Malaysia) - - NEWS -

More than ever be­fore, you’re ex­posed to peo­ple’s “high­light reels” on their so­cial me­dia. You’re at your cu­bi­cle, tap­ping through your friend’s Snaps (“My job pays me to travel!” “Pi­lates in Bali with bae <3”) and all you can think is: What am I do­ing with my life?

Firstly, stop com­par­ing. And se­condly, de­spite what you think, your ca­reer (and what­ever you dream of) is a mov­ing tar­get. To re­ally pull ahead, the most im­por­tant trait is ‘grit’. It’s your per­se­ver­ance for long-term goals, de­spite any mis­steps. How else would you learn? The lessons I learned from our 30 Hot Shots this year were im­mense. These young Malaysian women are on in­ter­stel­lar ca­reer tra­jec­to­ries, and they’re not afraid to break out of their com­fort zones to get what they want, and to make a dif­fer­ence. We at #TeamCLEO loved how they were head­strong and pas­sion­ate when they spoke about their work. Their myr­iad ex­pe­ri­ences wove a ta­pes­try of sto­ries that truly in­spire. I can’t wait for you to meet them, so turn over to page 77.

As for your fu­ture, you’re liv­ing it. Take your con­nec­tions to the next level by com­mand­ing pres­ence in a room (page 100), and learn how to re­ally get no­ticed on­line (page 101 and 102). To help you nail that first im­pres­sion, a panel of judges and I road-tested the lat­est in beauty to dis­cover the prod­ucts with pow. Flip to CLEO’s Beauty Hall Of Fame (page 109) for these bright new things. Re­mem­ber, hotshot, fail­ure is never per­ma­nent; put your heart into what you be­lieve. The only thing is – just do it!
