1.) Live in the present.
Since graduating college I have been constantly fixated on the past and worrying about the future. Learn to live in the present. It takes practice, but it can be done.
2.) Surround yourself with like minded people.
I’m sure you have heard the quote, “You are a combination of the five people you hang out with the most in your life.” Surround yourself with people who make you better and bring out the best in you. No sense in being around people that don’t motivate or inspire you.
3.) Maintain friendships.
People move, people outgrow each other. Any type of relationship takes work.
4.) Put yourself first.
I hate to be harsh but at the end of the day no matter what happens to you in life, you will always have yourself. Spend time bettering and investing in yourself.
5.) Meet different people.
Get out of your comfort zone and meet new people. You’ll learn a lot about yourself and other people.
6.) Don’t spend money on useless shit.
Spend your money wisely and be mindful of your spending habits.
7.) Put money in a retirement account.
Yes, I get it, it’s not something you’re thinking about right now. But you’ll thank yourself for doing it when you get older……….if you’re still alive.
8.) Don’t waste your time with people who don’t want you in their life.
If someone doesn’t want to be in your life anymore, then let them leave.
9.) Look at your past not as failed experiences, but as LEARNED experiences.
Don’t look at your past romantic relationships, business partnerships, family relationships, friend relationships, etc. as failed experiences. Take the knowledge you gained from these experiences and apply it to your future ones.
10.) Take a risk already, we are all going to die one day eventually.
Seriously though, what’s holding you back. You really have nothing to lose.
11.) Appreciate what you have in life.
Just appreciate it.
Don’t getting fucking fat or get out of shape.
13.) Travel as much as possible.
No better time to travel in life.
14.) Start a side hustle.
Start something on the side to make a few extra bucks. I never believed in relying on one source of income. Passive income will lead you to financial freedom!
15.) Learn something new everyday.
Seriously, I see so many people wasting their time watching TV shows and checking social media. Learn a new skill or read a fucking book already.
16.) Moderation is the key to life.
Do things in moderation. You get the point.
17.) Appreciate the people closest to you in life.
Tell them. They might not be around one day.
18.) Get comfortable being alone.
If you don’t like just hanging out with yourself, then there’s something wrong. Work on being happy by yourself.
19.) Don’t talk about yourself.
One of the most easiest ways to be liked by someone is to ask them questions. People love to talk about themselves. Just read, “How to Win Friends and Influence People.”
20.) Don’t worry about what other people think about you.
Throw that thinking out the door. It will hold you back your whole life.
21.) Learn a new language.
I just recently started learning Spanish again. It’s awesome, and it will make you smarter.
22.) Get out of your head.
You have been telling yourself lies your whole life that aren’t true.
23.) Don’t hold anything back.
If you want to say something, just say it already.
