Everything we do in our life designs the future. Especially when we are in our 20s, we're all grown up, and make the most crucial decisions of our life during this part of life only.
You're ready or not, there are some challenges that life will throw at you at this age, and you'll have to face them no matter what. However, how you react to these challenges is going to play a huge role in the later part of your life, in your 30s and 40s.
A lot of times when we look back at our past we see ourselves committing mistakes that we might have escaped, only if someone could've informed or warned us about it. And it's not their fault; it's us who never valued those talented/experienced people around and regretted it later.
Today, most of us have built our lives in a way - that we learn a lot of things from unexpected sources, probably the internet.
The internet is full of the good, the bad and ugly words, and it's upto us how we soak it. So, keeping in mind these things, we at WittyFeed have compiled the list of things which you could do in your 20s to make your 40s regret-free.
Have a look!
The 20s is the perfect time to ask yourself, 'Who am I?' and stick to it. Take some time and learn yourself better. Most importantly, learn to love yourself first. Be sexy, be unique and be bold. Make your presence felt in the room.
Though a lot of people will say that it's wrong to go this way, we'd suggest the earlier, the better. It's important to know what traits and values you want to see in your partner. Decide on qualities which you can't compromise in your better half.
Read any religious book from front cover till the end cover. It's not because you should ultimately turn into a religious person, but because these books will answer a lot of your questions that are related to fundamental issues like God, birth, death, sin, Karma, and life. It's better to have your answers from an authentic source than to believe others.
The statistics related to paying the pending debt are alarming, and you already need to change your behaviour. A poor credit card history will disqualify you from taking any further loans, which could be more important for you at that time. To avoid regrets later, pay off your credit card bills on time.
It's a known fact that the college graduates earn more in their lifetime than those who have only high school degree.
The ability to convey and share your experience and ideas in writing is amazing. What's more amazing is that you can build this habit over time, and it's entirely free. Share your knowledge with the world, and the world will know your worth.
There's nothing pleasant than meeting new people and talking to them in their native language. It breaks down the barrier of communication between the two as well.
Some of the fondest memories that people write on their blogs and journal are - "Once upon a time, I had got two tickets..." The energy level you get to see and feel at these concerts is incomparable. Be it David Guetta, Coldplay or Celine Dion for that matter, do visit shows.
The first and the most important advice that any financial advisor would give you is "to prepare monthly budget plans." It's important to have balanced and healthy financial life as well.
Travelling is wonderful, and it's impossible to see all the glory of the world without stepping out of your comfort zone. Go places, travel and explore the world.
Even though you might have read the classic books throughout school, most of us happen to have forgotten the valuable lessons by the time we move in the 20s. Take some time and read something like The Catcher In The Rye or even Kamasutra if you feel like.
Eating well and exercising regularly in your 20s will help you set up a life that will give you a better quality of living in your 40s. If you love adventures, then run in marathons. Developing this routine during the 20s is easy than in 40s.
If there's one deadly mistake which you could commit in your 20s, then it's not to develop a habit of dealing with failure and criticism. Know this, not everyone is going to like you, and you're not in this world to live upto other people's expectations. Keep doing things which you feel are right, until and unless they're not harming others. The inability to handle criticism and failure can be dangerous.
Explore new culture, get new experiences and meet the people of same age. Beyond this, you can reach out to different people in your cities who are in the same profession as you. It'll not only help you to build a real network, but you may end up earning a friend for life, or maybe a mentor.
You don't know how to achieve what you desire, but some people who've achieved the same/similar things are on the verge of retiring, take them as your mentor. Learn from them, increase your knowledge. The fifty years of experience can be gained in fifty hours of lessons; and most of the time, it'll be free of cost. You can have as many as mentors you want.
Remember: "The life you're living is also a dream of many."
That's all, folks!
