10 Things to focus on in your 20’s

My 20’s were great.

I was young & hungry, willing to live life to its fullest, learn, earn & break hearts.

But it was mostly me who ended up broke & heartbroken.

I wish I knew better then

Advice for you to level up your 20’s

// A THREAD //
1. Build financial foundations

Your 20’s is the time to build foundations.
Lay the base for your financial future.

Save every month, invest if you can.
Your older you will be thankful.
2. Commit less to amorous relationships, more on yourself.

Know yourself well.

Committing to relationships which you know will fail, is not doing you nor the other person any favours.

Be honest with yourself.

If you heart says no, let your mouth speak the truth too.
3. Work on your creativity
“Knowledge gets you from A to B, imagination takes you everywhere”

Creativity increases your value
- It makes you unique.
- Invest in your uniqueness.

Work on your creativity
4. Focus more on meaning than money.

Meaning leads to purpose. Living with it makes you unstoppable.

If you only think about money, money owns you.

Meaning offers you calmness-confidence grows

Meaning will make money work for you.

Focus more on meaning & self-fulfillment.
5. Create multiple income streams

Don’t rely on one income stream.

Creating multiple income streams, multiplies your worth.

It’s not just about income.

It’s about enjoying the flows of additional streams.
6. Not give a f**k about what people think of you

If you’re just doing things to satisfy others, you’re missing out on you.

You are more important. Your needs must be met first.

Be selfish first so that you can help others later.
7. Work on your uniqueness

Instead of blending in. Stand out.

Live your difference. Work on your strengths

Be aware of your weaknesses.

Make your difference shine.
8. Gain more skills

No matter how successful you are today, keep working on learning more skills.

What you do today, could be different tomorrow.
9. Meditate

He who is calm is in control.

The best and fastest way to a calm mind is through meditation.

Meditate, become more mindful.

Improve your awareness and intuition.

Be more than anyone else in the room
10. Use self-development mindfully

Develop yourself, don’t just feed off the dopamine every time you read a motivational phrase.

Dig deeper. Unpeel your layers and connect with your core.

Find your truth.

Live it and start rebuilding from the ground up.

Hold on. Isn’t Sympathy the same as Empathy?

Well no, it’s not.

Sympathy is seeing, from a physical & emotional distance that someone’s shoes are hurting.

Empathy is putting yourself in the other’s shoes, walking in them & feeling their pain.

What are the 3 types of Empathy?
1. Cognitive:

Knowing how the other person feels and what they could be thinking. Also known as perspective-taking.
