Pretty sure what is true about your twenties is that it is a time when everything seems possible, but it also seems like everything is passing you by. It’s no secret that these days, adolescence is being stretched past our teen years, and many of us are suffering for it.
Here are some of the habits and hang-ups we typically face during our 20s and what we need to do to let them go.
1. Stop caring more about approval than earning it.
Nothing wrong with wanting to feel validated for your hard work. The problem is when you spend more time searching for a part on the back than going out and giving people a reason to recognize you. Let people recognise you with your skills
2. Stop being thankless.
As a matter of fact , being ungrateful, unappreciative, or however else you want to say it, is the same as being selfish.
Sure, you’d never admit that you’re an overall selfish person, but you may be oblivious to all of the goodwill thrown your way. Take moments to recognize the people in your life that are responsible for your happiness.
3. Stop being busy.
As you know sometimes, being lazy doesn’t look like laziness. It can look like you’re busy. Instead of working, creating, and contributing, you’re settling for an infinite array of tasks that will keep you distracted until you get from point A to point B.
Start making time for the things that matter.
4. Stop being narcissistic.
Analyse yourself and get over yourself. Let people get to know the real you, not a fake image you’ve put up for yourself through selfies and clever Tweets.
5. Stop putting things off.
Don’t let the prime of your life slip you by. Start taking advantage of the adventures life won’t give you a second chance on before settling down.
Go for the dream job. Move somewhere you’ve never heard of. It won’t be long before you lose your chance.
6. Stop relying on your parents so much.
This is easier said than done, but it’s time. You’ll make mistakes, feel trapped, and it won’t always be fun.
But you’ll be amazed at how strong you really are when there is no any other option except to be strong and bold.
7. Stop treating your job as a passive job.
I’ve come across a great deal of people who believe the point of their job is to collect a paycheck and move on. They’re then shocked when they get overlooked for promotions, raises, or keeping that job.
Don’t let your work be average or good enough. Provide value for the people who employ you.
8. Stop being cheap.
There’s value to a minimal lifestyle, and frugality isn’t something to trend away from. But you should also let yourself spend money on the things you truly want, within reason.
Buy the nicer clothes once in a while. Buy food that is good for you. Saving money is vital, but so is investing in the things that make you happy.
