7 things I wish I knew earlier

7 things I wish I knew earlier

Do what makes you happy

Most of the time we are stuck in places that make us unhappy. In turn we end up complaining and we all know that misery loves company and negative energy is passed on. At times you have you gather the courage and go after the things that really make you happy.

Have the courage to be disliked

I don’t know where I got the notion that I should strive to be liked by everyone but over the years I have come to appreciate the fact you are not everyone’s cup of tea. Don’t feel like you have to hold your tongue especially on things that are important to you on the account of trying to stay friends with someone.

Follow curiosity

I am not an expert on finding your purpose early on and to be honest in my opinion I feel like your purpose is different depending on different seasons of your life. My advice would be rather than getting stuck on finding “your purpose” follow the things that you are curious about. There lies so much satisfaction in actually trying out new things.

Be present 

Time is an ILLUSION. No matter how much you concentrate on the past, you can only learn from it. The same case applies to your future, more often than not you’ll end up at your final destination but the journey there is not always as you’ve planned. The best thing that you can do is to enjoy the NOW.

Invest in yourself

There is so much R.O.I (Return on Investment) when you invest in yourself.  Investing in yourself entails putting in resources to become better. It can include learning a new skill, personal and professional growth, enrolling for courses, hiring a coach e.t.c. It is one of the ways that will lead you to become the best version of yourself.

Make time for your family and friends

The biggest asset that you will ever have is the people in your life. It is therefore crucial to intentionally curve out time to spend with the people that you love.

Take risks (DO)

Stop THINKING and start DOING. That is all I have to say in regards to that.
