It’s amazing to see how quickly time passes.
I believe it is more important to be happy every day and grateful for everything you have.
Although I’m only 31, I can be seen staring at blank walls and thinking about the past, even though I’m still young.
Realizing that there are some lessons I wish I had learned earlier in my life, it is robbery to not share these principles.
You might be the kind of person who loves to make things worse than they are. This post may not be for you.
If you are interested in learning from others’ experiences, keep reading.
Be wise. Wisdom can help you succeed in ways far beyond your level of experience.
These are eight things that 31 taught me, and I wish I knew by 21:
1. Do your homework, and don’t expect to pass the test until you do.
You’ll know what I mean if you have ever done any research that led to you making a mistake in your life. If you don’t do your research, you will be prone to making costly mistakes, signing bad contracts, and buying large quantities of goods without doing enough research. Pay attention.
2. Be a strong networker
You don’t know everything. People need each other, and the one who is most resourceful will reap the greatest rewards. Be available to help and keep your phone number. It’s a good idea to smile, and it will pay off in the end.
3. There is no shortcut to wealth. There is no shortcut to wealth.
This should have been at the top of my post. Fresh out of college, I believed I could make a quick buck. At the time, I didn’t know much about Network Marketing and thought the top leaders were making millions. It took me a while before I realized the dedication and hard work they put into their jobs. I was able to see my profession as a profession, and I started working hard for results.
4. Beware of negative people
Negative people who see only the difficulties and not the opportunities that come with them will discourage you from dreaming big and living in color, like me. Negative people can make it difficult to be optimistic and positive.
5. Learn how to negotiate and practice doing so as often as possible.
I was a passive person who tried to make others feel comfortable while still adhering to the rules. It was not something I knew at the time. This world is run by people who are able to see the other side and challenge the boundaries that have been set for compromise. This is my new mantra. Do not be afraid to pay the full price for any item. You can always walk away if there is a problem. It’s refreshing!
6. Use your money to make a difference.
Don’t go out to dinner or the movies every weekend. Give those dollars a job. If you are willing to learn, those green men with wigs can open doors for you. Be open to investing opportunities while you’re young. While I don’t mean to criticize savings accounts, I will say that they can be a joke if used to create wealth.
7. Learn how to budget and love it.
My budget saved me more than once. Budgeting is necessary to show your will, get the best of your finances, and still live within your means. Don’t spend excess money. You should add it to your budget and then relegate it to hard work (see number 6).
8. Education is Uber-Important
This one I kept for last because my friends know me well enough to make comments about how I wish I hadn’t earned a Masters’s Degree. I will be the first to admit that regretting going to school is a joke. I am grateful for the chance to study and believe that it was a great learning experience. It is important to make the most of your education. Do your best to find a field that inspires you.
These are some of the things I learned from my experiences, which I want to share with any 21-year-olds who would like to learn from others.
