5 essential things you need to learn in your 20s

This is a two-part series. To read the first part, click here.

Last week I wrote a post about what to stop doing in your 20s: waste time and pretend these years “don’t really count”.

Here’s the truth: everything counts. Every single second of every day counts. What counts most is the present moment. NOW.

It doesn’t matter what plans you’ve made for the future, or what happened to you in the past. Sure, you can prepare yourself for a better future, and you can learn from the lessons of the past. But the most important thing in this journey called life is to enjoy every single step of it. Basically, you need to make the most out of your now, every day of your life.

Now that you know what not to do in your 20s (throw them out the window), let’s talk about what you must do in your 20s. More specifically, let’s talk about what you really need to learn during this fateful decade. The sooner you learn these things, the better your life will be, and the more you’ll be able to make the most out of everything you’ve got.

    I’m 19. This video really helped me out today. I failed this semester of college, lost my job, and just let myself down in general. I was feeling pretty awful before watching this video but I feel a lot less discouraged now. I spent a lot of time sulking and feeling sorry for myself and I realized it is just time wasted that could be spent bettering myself. I have always always always compared myself to others in every aspect and I’m done doing that; It’s going to be a difficult habit to break but it’s only holding me back. Thank you so much for taking the time to make this video. It was just what I needed to get my head out of my ass and show myself and everyone what I am capable of. Thank you again. I hope you have a wonderful day. -Mariana

    • Mariana, I am so glad this helped you. Every setback and pain point that life brings us is really a lesson. Maybe part of your lesson was exactly this: to learn not to compare yourself with others. Had you not gone through this, you very well might never have watched this video and realized how harmful it can be. I’m really glad I could make a difference in your life. Wishing you a million blessings!
