From 20 to 30 is the perfect time to find out what kind of a person you want to be, both personally and professionally. Spend those years with the maximum benefit, in order to become a successful and happy person for a lifetime. Regrets aren’t bad, but repeatedly regretting is. You have a long way to go. Just start with something small and slowly let in the rest to your life. Even if at least half of the list becomes a habit, life after 30 will be much more pleasant.
1. DON’T REGRET THE PAST
There are two kinds of people: some look back, the other looking forward. People who look back constantly looking for reasons to regret and miss the chances. For people who look only forward, life is an opportunity to grow and learn, every failure is a lesson, not a cause for regret.
2. DON’T TRY TO LIVE SOMEONE ELSE’S LIFE
Do not compare your achievements with the achievements of others. Gain experience, and draw inspiration from wise and successful people. But do not try to be like someone else. So you never feel that you have achieved something. You can only be in competition with yourself. Each person is unique and has it own path. Follow the one that is yours. Live your mind and don’t do something just because allegedly ‘must’. Listen to the advice, but don’t follow them blindly. Don’t be afraid that someone will judge you for your decisions. Your life belongs to you and no one else.
3. WRITE DOWN ALL YOU GOALS
Usually, we want a lot, but we are not able to adequately analyze and formulate our desires. We get hung up on the fact that we don’t have the opportunity to do things we love, or we have not enough money, and a large number of life circumstances. The questions like ‘what I want?’ and ‘what I can?’ creates a mess in your head. In consequence of which, you have ceased to understand what you really want.
Turn off the brain and briefly abstract from your current life situation. Imagine that you have a substantial sum of money for example. That is, the possibility is already here, nothing and no one stops you to choose how you want to live, you can afford everything you want. If you have ambition, and you do not select an option of a rich slacker, then try to imagine your ideal life in 5, 10 and 20 years.
If you have already decided on your goal, disassemble in reverse order, review all alleged steps that you will have to pass on the way to achieving this goal. To make your dream did not remain just a dream, write down everything. Write plans and dreams, how to reach them, and development options, write down every detail, with passion and desire. Over time, you’ll get a complete picture of your desired future, which will seem very close and real. This will inspire you and help you to go through life with confidence.
4. NEVER STOP LEARNING
Increase your skills, ask questions and listen to intelligent people. Never hesitate to share thoughts and ideas and to express your opinion. Join the important projects that develop culture or innovations. Learn one or more foreign languages. Don’t miss the available free courses or lectures. You will surely learn something, meet interesting people and have forged many useful contacts. Be involved in what is happening in the world. If you follow the news, you will have more chances to find the work of your life, or understand where you are in demand. Never stop learning and never stop in your personal growth. You’ll be amazed, how the pursuit of knowledge will contribute your life and career.
