Do you ever wish you could go back in time and give advice to your younger self? Personally, I know I do all the time. My 20’s were fun but not as life-changing as they could have been had I had this advice.
This is actually one of the reasons I became a personal development writer. I want to help influence people reading these articles and help make positive change.
10 Life Changing Pieces of Advice To My Younger Self
1. Surround Yourself With Positivity
The world can look like a negative place if you watch the news and spend too much time on social media. There is always some horrendous story and matching clickbait titles.
Don’t believe it, there is so many great people doing amazing things in the world. Turn off the news and start watching motivational or inspirational content. There are endless speeches and education on Youtube that can change your life.
2. Spend More Time With People You Love
Sometimes people you love leave this world too soon. Spend time with people you love. Don’t waste an ounce of your energy with people who aren’t huge parts of your ultimate life movie.
3. Unleash The Power of Goals
As Tony Robbins said, “People aren’t lazy they simply have impotent goals.” Set all kinds of goals for what you want to achieve in life. No goal is too big with the right plan and vision.
4. Find Your Passion | Advice to my younger self
It might sound cliche but I’ve done jobs I loved, liked, and hated. Despite the fact that one job I hated made a ton of money it wasn’t worth it in the long run. Always follow what you love doing and your life will be so much more fulfilled.
5. Never Stop Learning | Advice to my younger self
It’s easy when you graduate high school or college to think you have learned it all. Just because school is over doesn’t mean you should stop learning.
Spend time reading, watching motivational videos, and going to seminars to make learning a habit of success.
6. Start A Meditation Practice
Meditation can help you even if your life is perfect. And it’s an amazing tool if things aren’t going well in your life. The earlier you start, the longer the benefits you can reap.
7. Conquer Your Bucket List
What’s the point of making money if you don’t create lasting experiences? Don’t buy another new car or home, spend money on experiences with people you love.
8. Give Back & Appreciate Life
When you’re in your twenties it’s easy to not think about giving back since you are just getting started in life. But I’ve found that giving back helps others as much as it helps you.
9. Exercise Often | Advice to my younger self
One of the best ways to maintain your health over time will be going to the gym on a regular basis. If you start in your 20’s it’ll much easier to maintain than waiting until you are 30, 40 or 50. Health really is wealth.
10. Find People Who Motivate and Inspire You
If you want to live the best version of your life find people doing what you already want to do. Whether it’s a business, career, or the relationships they have with others.
Success always leaves clues. Learn from people you want to be like so you can become the best version of yourself sooner in life.
