These 25 lessons I have learnt in my 20’s are a compilation of advices from the older generation that works

Nobody has it all figured out:

That is the truth because nobody has done life before and so everyday is a fresh start for everyone. Even those who act like they have it all together are experiencing what they are currently experiencing for the first time. Everyone is still figuring out life so don’t beat yourself up.

A positive mind gives a positive life:

When you have a positive mindset despite the confusion, the blurry lines and everything else in between, you have a better life. Your 20’s are one of the best times to be positive

Life is short, do what you love:

Your 20’s are your best time to chase those things that matter to you; those things you daydream about and think about constantly in your waking moments. Don’t be afraid to do those things that you love and do them with all the passion and strength that you can muster.

Mistakes are okay:

Mistakes are a part of life and you should not run from them. Learn to embrace your mistakes and learn as much as you can from them; squeeze out as much juices of lessons that you can from it

You are enough:

You are enough, you are complete and you should see yourself as such. You do not need a man or a woman or a friend or a family or relation to complete you. You are enough by yourself.

Hard work is important:

You can daydream all you want but at some point, you are going to have to put in the hard work in order to be able to really get to the life and standard you desire. The place of hard work cannot be underestimated and nothing is yet to replace it. 

Everyone has insecurities:

Confidence is not the absence of our insecurities. It is knowing that you are not your insecurities and that you are enough with or without them so don’t let your insecurities stop you because confident people do not allow anything to hold them back.

Your confidence will help you a lot:

Ever seen the typical scene in a movie where the confident, not so attractive girl gets the best looking guy? What is her secret, you may ask. Confidence! It is the ability to be so comfortable in your skin that the opinions and negative criticisms of others matter little to you

The little things matter:

Indeed the little things matter. That little work you put in everyday, that little prayer or meditation, that little kindness, the little pages of books you read everyday and so on. All these seemingly little things add up to become something big. Remember that there is no such thing as an overnight success.

Smiling will take you a long way:

Smiling is an excellent habit that you should start to cultivate if you are not the smiling type already. Smiling will open up new doors of opportunity, friendships and connections.

The right kind of networking will take you far:

Don’t underestimate the right kind of networking in your 20’s. These good relationships that you have cultivated will help you further down the line. Connect with as many high value friends as you can.

Don’t be afraid of failure:

Do not be afraid to fail. As a matter of fact, failure is a normal part of life. Do not fear failure, fear staying stuck in the same place forever.

Don’t sacrifice your dreams for a relationship:

Your 20’s are not a time to make foolish decisions concerning your relationships. If you are given the choice to choose between your dreams and a romantic interest, please go for your dreams. If the person really loves you, then he or she will understand.

Some people are not worth the fight:

While it is okay to fight for the people we love, we should also know when we have reached our limit. Don’t keep fighting for someone that would not do the same for you.

It is okay to be different:

Being different makes you stand out. When you are young, you tend to want to fit in and be among the in-crowd. But as you grow older, you realize that nobody really cares that much about you. Be yourself, stand out, enjoy the things that you do and don’t worry about what people think.

You are not special:

Yes you are not special. This may be a hard pill to swallow especially if you grew up hearing everyone telling you how special you are. The truth is that you are not exempt from the blows that life will throw your way so always be prepared to deal with them. 

You can have what you want:

You can have whatever you want especially if you work hard for it. Your thoughts and actions create your reality. Work for what you want and you can have it.

Your thought defines your reality:

This may sound cliche but it is true. Your reality are as a direct result of your thoughts up to this moment. If you want a different result, then change your thoughts. Use your 20’s to manifest your dream life

You are not too young:

You are not too young to make an impact, you are not too young to make a difference, you are not too young to die. Make use of your time wisely and do not use the fact that you are young to waste your youth.

Time runs very fast:

Time flies but you are the pilot. Time waits for no one and so whatever you have to do, do it fast. Invest your time in useful ventures and you will reap the benefits and rewards that come with a well invested time.

Your peace of mind is more important:

Anything that will take away your peace of mind is totally not worth it. Do not trade your peace of mind or tranquility for anything else. Your peace is priceless. You should be able to sleep at night peacefully without worrying about anything.

Sometimes you have to go solo:

There are some journeys you have to make alone and there are paths that you have to go through alone. Sometimes you have to fly solo and during those times, you should enjoy it. These solo times may come more often than you expect.

Stop waiting, start doing:

If you are waiting for a signal to start doing what you are supposed to be doing then this is that signal. Stop waiting for a sign, just do it. Sometimes you do not need a sign to start work on what matters to you. Start now and stop waiting

You regret more of what you didn’t do than what you did:

Life is short, go after what you love and the life you desire. Don’t wait and then regret later that you should have done it. People regret what they did not do more than the things that they have done. Take a step now

You will be tested:

Life will test you, life will deal you with blows and you will stagger, you may even fall but do not stay down. Pick yourself up and start working towards your goals. Don’t quit because life rewards those who do not give up with success.
