30s are the best time of your life many said to me, I think it is as good as the amount of good decisions you took in your 20s, how open you were to trying new things and most importantly how much time you spend exploring your inner self to find out who you are.
Here is what I learned in my 20s, in the last hours of it
Smile as often as you can, be happy and make people around you happy, there isn’t anything as rewarding as adding a smile on someone’s face.
Don’t let anyone tell what you can or can’t do when they do, thank them politely and move on.
Examine your beliefs most of the time you are living someone else’s life without conscious understanding of that.
Sleep well and eat well save your energy for things that matter.
Be yourself, it isn’t worth the effort trying to change that, try as many things as you could discover your strength and weakness, what you like to do and you don’t, do more of what make you happy and less of what doesn’t.
Embrace the differences in other people, if we all are the same life would be dull and boring.
Encourage others to try and be there for them when they fail, save your advice to yourself you can’t predict the future none of us can.
Don’t fear failure, looking stupid, challenges, trying new things, falling in love, losing. Fear is just an illusion.
Dance whenever you can there are not wrong moves, just follow the rhythm.
Learn music, the timing of it, the beats are what control this world.
Don’t rush be patient, don’t hesitate either go for it whenever you could.
Play chess, meditate, look inside yourself, look up, smile in the face of strangers and say hi whenever you can.
Take pictures, save your memories, don’t let them limit you; forget the ones that make you sad. Remember what makes you happy.
Don’t control your emotions let them flow, try and capture them, analyze them, frame them if you can. And even better channel them whenever possible.
Go out, say yes whenever someone invites you, remember people names and call them by it whenever you can.
Stay foolish, never stop learning and don’t assume you know. Speak to people, whenever you can and listen to what they have to say.
Be part of the team, use compassion, don’t assume just ask, the answer is always no when you don’t ask.
Stand by people when they need you, especially when they are sad; be with them when they are happy too.
Surround yourself by the right people, they will empower you, stay away from the lame.
Examine your ego closely; the line between ego and confidence is very blurry.
Work hard and play harder.
Be committed, do your best in everything you do, make it a way of life.
Have a strong belief that everything is possible when you truly believe you can.
Don’t pay attention to what people say, nor what they do, what the pattern of their actions.
Don’t over spend nor save too much, have a balance.
Examine the details, but occupy yourself with the bigger picture.
Express your anger, your sadness, and frustration even if not in front of everyone. Some people will use it against you.
Hard work alone doesn’t guarantee success; learn how to position yourself, and how to be in right time in the right place.
Be honest, love everyone, even when it’s hard.
The journey continue
