Do You Have the Life Skills You Need?

Here are the skills required to become successful

What are the most important things in life? If you answered staying safe, getting an education, maintaining good health, finding a long-term partner, learning to handle money, acquiring basic cooking skills, and knowing how to shop for basic items, then you are in agreement with experts on the topic. They listed those activities as being among the most important for adults in the modern era.

That doesn’t mean there are no other skills we should try to acquire, only that those are considered the core areas of knowledge for getting by in today’s world. Here’s a bit more detail about each one:

Fund Your Education

If you make it through high school in one piece, it’s time to face the challenge of college if you want to maximize your potential income. For the huge majority of prospective university students, those four years can quite expensive. Savings, work-study, grants and scholarships usually aren’t enough to cover the entire cost. The solution is getting a student loan. Borrowing money for higher education is a ‘good’ kind of debt. It allows people to increase their lifetime earning potential and should far outweigh the costs of interest in paying back the loan.

Budget, Cook, and Shop

In terms of daily living, psychologists and consumer counselors agree that learning how to make a budget, how to cook simple means, and how to shop for necessary items are three related pieces of a skill set called living from day-to-day. It’s important to not only earn money but understand how to spend it wisely. That’s what budgeting is all about. After deciding where funds should go, responsible adults need to know how to buy food and prepare it for themselves. The budgeting-shopping-cooking skillset is perhaps the most basic of all.

Defend and Preserve Your Life

In order to survive in the world, people should know the rudiments of self-preservation and defense, even if that consists of nothing more than knowing how to run and when to call 911. Defense is not necessarily about fighting, experts say, it’s about survival. Defending yourself might mean getting out of a dangerous place, summoning help, or not walking on dark streets.

Maintain Your Health

Staying physically and mentally healthy is at the very root of survival. It’s important to visit a doctor regularly, understand basic nutritional principles, have first-aid skills, and stay in good shape. This life skill includes maintaining a healthy weight and exercising regularly. It also means avoiding poisons like tobacco, refraining from dangerous behaviors like drinking alcohol to excess, and staying out of the sun in order to minimize the risk of skin cancer.

Find a Mate

People who are good at making social connections seem to be able to find life partners easily. But that’s not the case for about 75 percent of the population, according to social scientists.
