12 Important Things You Need To Know By The Time You Turn 30
1. Whatever you want to do in life, you can do it.
Life is filled with opportunities that help us to grow. But you need to spot those opportunities and understand their true worth, and for that, you need passion, courage, and a goal-oriented mindset. Often we get stuck in the negative mindset of “It’s not possible to do this or that, or I’ll do it afterward.” But the truth is that there is no ‘later’; focus on the ‘now’.
No one can restrict the things you do in life. Even though the thought of venturing into unknown paths seems scary, remember that you can create the kind of life you want.
If you are doing something new that you are entirely inexperienced in, it is, no doubt, a challenging situation for you. But a path can be planned out after taking note of the things that have worked in your favor previously and those that haven’t. discard the things that don’t work for you and focus on the ones that work.
2. Your most valuable assets are Truth and Integrity.
We see superficial things all around us, but deep down, you should know the true nature of things. Don’t base your actions on someone’s else’s approval. Don’t change your path just because another person doesn’t like it. Don’t give in to someone’s arguments and agree with them just to maintain peace; hold your ground. Be honest; don’t lie about something that’ll benefit you superficially.
True peace in life can be achieved only if you have the courage to be honest and true. Truth and integrity are the foundations of your power. Never lose those qualities.
3. There is always something new to learn in any subject or situation.
Never stop learning. The eagerness and ability to learn new things about various topics shouldn’t end with the end of our school lives. As we age, we should focus on learning new things every day, that is how we grow as a person.
Your mind is always thirsty for new information and more knowledge. The storage space in your brain is boundless. So feel motivated to absorb every kind of knowledge that you come across.
4. Only You are responsible for every condition your life is in.
The truth sounds harsh. But ask yourself this– “Who should feel motivated to ensure that everything in my life works out exactly the way I had wished it would?” You have your answer; it’s none other than YOU.
The next question you need to ask yourself is, “Who should feel responsible to see to it that my life turns out the way I had planned?” Again, you know the answer is YOU.
5. Life is ever-changing. Plan your steps accordingly.
Change is the only constant thing in life. Your life is changing in small steps every minute of each day.
Hence, you need to be spontaneous. If you have rigid ideas about how life is supposed to be and have a fixed plan to deal with everything, you might end up taking the wrong step.
In a given situation, give it a thorough thought about what is actually going on and what are your intentions. First, observe closely and then take action- that’s always the best way to tackle any situation.
6. Hold on to what you know is right.
In this fast-paced, ever-changing world, it is hard to hold on to who we know we really are. Then there is the problem of desensitization. We get used to certain things over time, even though we would have steered clear of those circumstances in the past, keeping in mind what we believed in.
Always hold on to your ideals and core values. You can always evolve and in fact, you should, but never lose your integrity. Stick to what you know is right and at times, think about who you really are.
