For some reason I always feel really grown and I’m not even sure why that is the case because I’m actually very very young. As the years have gone by, my mindset on a lot of things have changed and I think this is partly due to personal things I’ve experienced. I am very grateful that the lessons learned through these experiences, although harsh, have shaped me to become who I am today.
I will be sharing with you the 5 most important things I have learned in my early 20s…
Thing number one
Learning and education never stops. My mum used to say this a lot when I was younger but I didn’t realise the importance of this. As I have gotten older I have actually become a lot more eager and open to learning new things. I think as I have gotten older, I have realised that knowledge is power and your knowledge is something that can never be taken away from you. Also, in your professional life more often than not the more knowledgeable you are, the more opportunities there are out there for you and so the better your quality of life becomes.
Thing number two
Life goes on. I think this is probably the saddest realisation I’ve ever come to. Life doesn’t stop for anyone and continues to go on and on forever. Life does not care about your circumstances because it will still go on! Have you guys ever just been so sad about a lot of things in your life and just wish life could pause for a couple hours so you can deal with things? Because me too! It’s really tough in these streets.
Thing number three
You can do and become whatever you want to AS long as you have the resources and opportunities. Don’t get me wrong there are some cases where people have built themselves up without help and honestly those cases are admirable however I believe that having the right resources and becoming who you want to become goes hand in hand.
Thing number four
Money management is key. Honestly as an adult money rules everything you want to do. Even leaving your house costs money and so knowing how to manage your money is essential. If you don’t, It’s very important to learn how to do so as early as you possibly can.
Thing number five
Investing in yourself is probably the best thing you could do for yourself. Now I know everyone’s definition of investing in themselves is different however it’s very important to do whatever you see fit. Whether it’s buying that book to gain more knowledge, buying that car to take you from A to Z, getting your nails or hair done. Whatever you see as investing in yourself, do it because you will thank yourself later.
