Yeah, those are the best years of our lives, because we’re not sure who we are yet. Everything’s an adventure.
We start with kids and teach them to read and then give them an education and the responsibility of being able to read and understand.
Within these first 20 years, you learn how to do many things, most of them are things that you will never forget, you learn to appreciate and understand the people around you, you learn to be happy and to be sad, and you learn that life is short and life is long.
The mindset that people start to form for themselves during those times can fluctuate greatly, and either push them towards what they want, or gradually away.
We are living in a world which is unstable because of changes in the environment.
20 Life Lessons Learned in 20 Years of Life
One thing I’ve learned in 20 years of my life is that life doesn’t go as fast as you’d like it to. You can make as many plans as you want, but life will throw you curve balls. This article talks about 20 life lessons learned in 20 years of my life, and what you can expect to happen.
1. People’s actions are affected more by what they want to hear, rather than what they actually hear.
The thing is that everyone is influenced by media (like newspapers, radio, television etc.) and so is everyone else.
You can’t trust what you hear and/or what you see/hear on the news, etc.
There are things that happen in real life of course that you can’t depend on the media. That’s where you actually need to try to find the truth.
The difference in this case is how the actions and thoughts we take can affect the results of our future actions, so we must be careful about what we do.
When it comes to working in environments where you don’t have direct control over your career progress it’s important to be able to learn from what’s going on around you. That way you can either find out what’s not working well, or what could be done better.
2. Being different is important. Trying to be someone else can destroy any unique talent that you have.
At the same time, the people in our society want to fit in with others.
After a period of time, many of us grew tired of being told every time that something or someone is wrong or wrong.
And that’s why we create our own opinions and begin to make new friends.
Living life with passion, and doing what you are passionate about is the secret to living life at your fullest. Your path in life will always be defined by who you are and how you choose to live your life.
If you are a person of color and you’re trying to fit in with white people, you’re going to be lonely and sad because you’ll never feel good about who you are. But if you’re a person of color and you learn to love being you and be proud of who you are, then you’ll never be lonely or sad.
3. Time can be both your best friend and worst enemy. How you use it is critical.
It could be that time is the one thing that runs out, but we never know this until it has. We always get to the point where we think we have plenty of time to do and finish everything we wished and never really do them. But then we have to learn when to stop.
In your twenties, you have more time to pursue your passions, but as you get older, you get busier with things that are more important, like building relationships and your career. Keep things in perspective. You don’t want to be rushing into old age and not having time to do the things you want to do.
Time can be your greatest ally because it allows you to give your 100% and still achieve a lot. It is also how you will slowly turn things into gold.
I think that’s a very loose definition of success, although I think ten thousand hours is a pretty good estimate. I think most people would say the more money you make, the more successful you are. I think that’s pretty much universally considered to be the definition of success.
4. When you finish education, the talented start to get overtaken by the hardworking.
When we are children, we are given the same education and do not get the same opportunities as those who have some brains. However, as we get older, they will have an obvious advantage.
The only problem is that they are likely to be less competent as a result because they have not experienced much of the world.
And also, do you know that if you want to be successful, it’s important to work towards your goals, don’t just sit back and let things happen to you. You’ve got to make your own destiny and when you reach that dream, you can get a promotion, get a new house and even earn more money. You’ve got to make your own world and you can get everything you want.
5. Everybody has the capability of dreaming and achieving, but most people do not attempt to achieve what they dream.
There are many people who don’t even make attempts to achieve their dreams because they think they will fail, and even if they do succeed, they think they will be miserable.
6. Anything ever worth achieving does not come easy. Hard work is the key to everything.
This is one of the important lessons I’ve learned recently. Nowadays people are led astray by promises of opportunities that give the same results, but are quicker and easier to achieve.
I am not talking about you, but the dieting industry which has made a billion dollars in a decade.
As a software developer, I will tell you that you are an idiot. You will never be able to manage your own code; I will never be able to trust what I see you code. And I definitely won’t trust your ability to build anything.
I’m 90% sure that the other 10% have gone through every one of the methods and tricks listed, and they are still unable to achieve what they want.
7. The majority of situations can be improved, if you’re willing to drop all the excuses you tell yourself first.
You will never have time, but you can always find a way to make time for the things you care about.
It’s often difficult to tell if you’re talking about someone or yourself–sometimes you’re the one who will be reading these things, and sometimes you’re trying to convince someone else to do what you want.
We were always in a situation where we were told to go down the right route. I always felt like I was being told, “This is the only way.” We didn’t even realize what the right route was, and we were told we were wrong every time we tried to express an opinion. I think that was when we made the decision to start this project.
8. Connecting with like-minded people is the quickest way to developing yourself into the person you want to be.
You can become like the 5 people that you spend the most time with. You become like the people you hang out with the most. Having the right people around you makes all the difference in the world. It means the world to you.
I believe that in order to be successful in life that you have to surround yourself with people that are motivated, positive and have a positive outlook on life.
9. Never turn your back on people who have always supported you.
If you have friends that care about you and appreciate your worth and value, then you are probably doing pretty good. It is important to know your friends are there for you and support you.
I flew to Australia to spend a little time travelling with one of my best mates who currently lives out there and have a great time catching up on everything, however, I was also very aware that we were there to have the best time that we possibly could and that we didn’t leave any stone unturned in making sure we had the best time in all senses.
He’s a great person who’s very supportive and very happy I’m doing this work, and I know that I need to be doing this work.
10. The first 20 years of your life build the foundation for the rest.
But what about the part of our lives right after we graduate? We are left with nothing to show for all those years of hard work. We feel empty, and we are really just waiting for our career to start.
We are not only more susceptible to peer pressure and other influences, but our brains develop and adapt at a much faster rate during this time than they do at adulthood.
If you take the road of self discovery and spiritual awakening you can avoid the pitfalls of the road of destruction of the past.
11. To create something your truly proud of takes time. Your vision always has the potential to become reality.
The only thing I was passionate in in the early years of my life was learning how to draw. I used to learn a new drawing technique every weekend. It was an obsession.
There are several ways to find your passion in life, but the most important way is to search for the things that make you feel fulfilled and fulfilled, then look for ways you can improve on them.
The point of this, is that a plan is just a plan, you can change it as many times as you want. It may work or it may not. It all depends on your judgement and your understanding.
There is no better time than now.
12. Peer pressure is a test of your will. Strong will is essential for success.
Peer pressure is the hardest thing to get rid of. If you try to avoid it, and fit yourself into some mold that you’re not truly comfortable with, you find that you can only get so far.
I was one of the few friends who didn’t take up smoking. Whenever one of my friends would get a cigarette, I would go outside to smoke with them. But, I wouldn’t smoke with them.
I started this project because I think I can make something that makes people feel better about the world around them.
You need to have a strong will. You will face a lot and it’s not going to happen overnight; but if you really want it, it will come along. It’s like how the old saying goes: “You can say no, but you will still say yes to yourself later.”
The following week he started to lose weight, with a goal of losing over 10 pounds in two weeks.
13. Anybody who sets out to make a big impact or go against the grain will receive some level of hate.
You have to learn to accept that people are different and not care whether someone is for or against you.
You have to be different in this world. I think we all have a difference. We all have a vision. I know that I have a vision, and that’s why I work and do what I do. I have a vision of a world where everybody is happy, where everybody is free and everybody is healthy. That’s what I think about.
So I do what I do because I want to live in a world like that. I want to live in a world, and maybe bring about that world, where people can truly experience the joy of life.
14. Many people think they have the option to either live and die young or live elderly and die without truly living.
Or you get to live until you’re 100. Meaning you can do whatever you want to do. There’s no boring job waiting for you to hate.
For example, when you’re a child, you play with your friends; you don’t even know what the word ‘friends’ means till you get older; then you get a bunch of friends and you hang out together all the time; and you always have a laugh; you always have fun.
As you can tell, I love the world of writing. From the beginning, I’ve always enjoyed writing, from my very first book in second grade, to my very first computer program in high school. After I went through my bachelor of science in computer science, I was lucky enough to graduate into a program where I could write code and design websites, but it wasn’t until I started working for a startup that I had the chance to do more creative writing.
15. Things aren’t just naturally attracted to you. It’s up to you to make the first move.
It is important to do what is necessary to achieve success. If you want to achieve success, you should take steps to change your situation or environment.
I think that is the most important thing. And I think one of the hardest things. It can be really boring, you’re not gonna make friends that easily.
I hate playing the waiting game. The number 15 teaches me to focus on the results and not the process of getting them.
16. Trees can’t be chopped down without persistence. Only after so many hits in the same spot will it be brought down.
I think a lot of times, a lot of us look at ourselves and we think that we’re not good enough. Or we don’t understand why the world is the way that it’s. But I think that’s all part of our human nature, to believe that maybe we’re not good enough. If you look at the Bible, it says that we ourselves are not good.
Persistence is the key to improvement. Whether you’re playing for a girl who has been playing hard to get, a business that can’t quite get off the ground, or a quest for building muscle mass that is going much slower than first expected.
17. It’s better to act and be embarrassed for five minutes, than to not act and be embarrassed for the rest of your life.
I was a quiet kid. I didn’t speak up a lot and would just go with the flow. I got more and more nervous and scared of asking questions in case someone laughed at me and called me a “stupid question”.
There’s also a very subtle indication of the protagonist’s increasing anxiety on the one side and his deepening respect for the other.
And to be honest, there are things about our country that I don’t know, and I don’t want to know. I don’t want to know the secret things about our country, because I’m not gonna be a good citizen if I know it.
18. You don’t have to follow the crowd just because it seems sensible.
The first thing you notice about someone is their personality and you’ll notice if they’re outgoing or shy, and if they’re a good listener and talker. It depends what industry you’re in and what you do, but your personality is very important.
Not following the crowd doesn’t mean you think you’re smarter than other people. When in doubt, ask someone you trust, even if that person doesn’t share your beliefs.
19. The best form of learning is outside of school.
Teaching kids is a general form of child education that aims for a certain end. It doesn’t cater to what you want to do in life, and it doesn’t give you any in action training.
Going out of your way while at college and even after to further your knowledge in subjects you are passionate about, is something you absolutely must do. The educational system can only get you so far.
20. Above all, never give up on what you believe is possible.
The last of the life-lessons I’ve learned in the last 20 years of my life is to never give up on what you believe will be possible. No matter how many people try to convince you otherwise, if you truly believe it will happen, you can make it happen.
Thank you for reading the list of 20 life lessons learned in 20 years of my life. Some people say that people born in the year of the dragon only know how to drink and fight, and they can’t teach me anything.
But I have never said people were wrong. I have pointed out that their behavior was stupid.
