Well, I'm 20 right now and I'm not aware at all about this important turning point of life. Right now, I'm in my safe zone, my whole life about just study, boring and I wanna take a higher challenge,but HOW?
When I look around, there are many people who younger or around my age already take a higher level become success. I'm not talking about success means you got a lot of money, No. Success is about what can you do to help society. And I just sits here, googling, do my tasks, entertaining myself, and barely thinking of other people. This is not I want to do in my life. I want to do more :<
I just need motivation to start! And I think this good advices can remind me to be better each day!

Our 20′s are the most pivotal points in our lives. This is
the time in which we become responsible for how our future will unfold,
due to the important actions and decisions that make up this exciting
yet confusing stage.
This is when we mold the direction our lives will take, and the way
we will handle all of the obstacles that stand in front of us completing
the journey we have chosen to embark on.
The 20s brings upon a lot of questions, doubtful moments and
uncertainty. It is maybe one of the hardest points in a person’s life
because that is the first time we truly face ourselves in the mirror
seriously and ask what the hell are we going to do with our life and how
are we going to do it.
This is a scary concept for many of us, as throughout the first 22
years of our lives we are used to being in school and having our
parents’ help us get anything we wanted or truly needed. It is truly
the first time we are considered independent adults and the decisions we
make during this period will rest with us forever.
As we love helping our fellow Generation Y-ers we have put together
the 20 best habits that we feel everyone should have in their 20s to
make the most out of this stage in life by crafting a valuable and
20. Focus on the activities and people that make you happy.-
This isn’t high school anymore, where we have to please people just
to be considered cool and fit in. This is the real world and in the real
world all you have to worry about is yourself and not what others think
about you. Do what you feel will help you attain the life you wish to
have, be around the people you truly enjoy hanging out with and engage
in what makes you feel most fulfilled.
19. Trust your instincts on new opportunities.-
Opportunities are never given, they are taken. Stop waiting for
handouts in life and go out there and get what you want. Trust your
instincts because if it doesn’t feel right inside it wont feel right for
you as time goes by. Trust that little voice in your head and do what
you feel is most beneficial for your well being and satisfaction.
18. Build the courage to face your fears.-
If you haven’t already noticed, the real world is filled with a lot
of intimidating phases you must participate in to grow up. Don’t ever
hesitate to give yourself a chance to be everything you are capable of
being. What brings out the best version of yourself is the act of
standing up to what scares you most.
The only person telling you to be afraid of these things is you.
Engage in discomforting activities that you know will make you a
stronger, more courageous person afterwards because they will never fail
to do so.
17. Focus on the resources you do have access to.-
We have witnessed so many people sit there and complain that they
can’t get where they want to be in life because they don’t have the
necessary resources to assume control. It’s time to stop being a cry
baby about this sort of thing. You wont be given any handouts so be
ready to work hard.
Life is about making something out of nothing what makes you so
special that you would be awarded a head start? Focus on the
opportunities you DO have, and exploit the resources you DO have access
16. Be less busy, and more productive.-
Being busy is a good thing but managing your time is more important.
You are not superman and you can’t do 100 things at once. Many people
make the mistake of spreading themselves too thin and thus losing
control of the opportunities they can no longer take full advantage of.
It’s easy to be busy but you need to be productive and effective as
well. Focus on the tasks that your life will benefit most from. Get the
necessary things done, the things in which you will be most at peace
with yourself upon completion.
15. Make your goals a priority. –
If you make a goal, you better stick by it because there wont be
anyone to push you to do so. You will eventually learn that the
direction your life takes is based on how you act on accomplishing your
goals. Stay focused on your ambitions. Tomorrow may never come, so start
14. Accept your humanness. –
Own up to your mistakes, admit you are only human and understand that
your 20s are a learning curve. You will screw up, it will hurt, but it
is the only way you will learn how to take the next step most
effectively. Take in all the answers to the tests you receive after
approaching something the wrong way or simply being careless.
13. Seek less approval from others.-
You are going to learn a cold hard lesson that many people that you
think care about you might actually be haters and users. Stop seeking
approval from people and stop worrying about what other people think
about you. Be proud of who you are and don’t let the opinions of the
those who wish they had your courage bring you down. Remember, a lion
does not worry himself over the opinions of the sheep.
12. Ignore society’s comparisons.-
It will never help you to compare yourself to other people and
believe that you will never amount to their success. Stop renting an
identity, be you and live your life without comparing it to someone
else’s. You are far more nuanced than anyone else’s narrative you try to
fit yourself into, and more complex than society’s story of what
‘should’ be happening in your life.
11. Believe in your ability to succeed.-
Fate and self belief are the two biggest factors of succeeding in
this world. Unless you believe that what you are after is in fact
possible to attain, you won’t get anywhere. You need to always maintain a
belief in your own ability to succeed, doubting yourself will only
distract you from the steps you should be taking to get closer to your
10. Manage your money before it starts to manage you.-
We live in one of the greatest recessions known to mankind, there are
not many jobs out there and the entire world is about to simultaneously
file for bankruptcy. Spend your money wisely and don’t spend above your
means. The last thing you want to do is be living pay check to pay with
so much uncertainty as to whether or not you will survive on your own.
9. Let the wrong people go.-
You are going to come across many different types of people in life,
so you don’t have to be everyone’s friend. You will come to realize who
your true friends are, supporting you through thick and thin. You will
also, however, encounter a fair amount of poisonous individuals that
will try to hold you back from getting what you want for their own
Cut them off and don’t let them intrude and ruin your life. You can’t
make everyone happy in this world, so don’t bother trying. Don’t be so
quick to lend out your trust.
8. Appreciate your true friends, and return the favor.-
You true friends are the ones that you can call during any time of
the day and will be there to help you no matter what. Return the favor
of being a good friend and don’t ever forget where you came from.
Friendship is what will keep you humble throughout your journey, and as
long as you continue to show appreciation for the love you are given, it
will only come back in larger doses.
7. Understand right from wrong-
This isn’t college anymore, it is time to grow up and take
responsibility for your actions. There is a right time and place for
everything and by now you should know what will help you in the long run
and what is simply a waste of time. It’s okay to have fun, but not
during a time when you know you could be working harder to accomplish
6. Choose happiness. –
Happiness is a choice that varies in substance for many people, so
you need to create your own kind of happiness that you find most
fulfilling or stimulating. There is nothing you need in order to be
happy other than the choice to do so. Let go of the worries you have for
what may or may not come your way. Focus instead on the good things
that you can give, create, inspire and choose to experience, right here,
5. Learn to cope with anger effectively.-
Your 20s are an emotional rollercoaster of confusion and
enlightenment. You will feel a significant amount of emotional stress
and you need to understand how to control it so it only helps you
dominate your 20′s with efficiency and pride.
When you begin to let your emotions start controlling you and your
decisions is when you are destined to fall off a cliff. Unless they
force you to work harder or more passionately, ignore the bad emotions
and let the good one’s carry you to new intellectual heights.
4. Make your own destiny –
If you want to be successful then you need to create the life that is
most deserving of such pleasures and reward. Don’t just sit there and
talk the talk. You need to learn how to walk the walk and stick by your
word. You have the power to make your own destiny and that starts with
the decisions you make and the actions you take to become worthy of
3. Create priorities.-
Priorities will help you understand what is important in creating the
life you wish to have and what is only stopping you from being the best
version of yourself imaginable. Life is going to offer many
distractions that will attempt to throw you off course from your goal.
It is ultimately up to you to stay disciplined at all times and
understand how to spend your time and energy in accordance to your own
well being. Don’t waste your time on social media or being a club rat.
These things won’t make you a more intelligent person with a better
grasp on how to handle life’s important choices.
2. Stay away from a routine based life.-
Don’t turn into a pedestrian by settling for the first thing that
life gives you. Security and stability may seem less harmful at first
but they prevent you from experiencing the greatest adventures and
rewards this world could possibly offer. You will be presented with a
lifestyle that appears comfortable, doing the same things each day with
little or no excitement or mental growth involved.
This is why you need to remember that to take advantage of the
wondrous opportunities life has in store for you, you must get
comfortable with the uncomfortable and choose the road that is most
interesting, regardless of how complicated or unnerving it may be.
1. Always keep in mind that life is somewhat unpredictable.-
Some of the great moments in your life won’t necessarily be the
things you do; they’ll be things that happen to you. That doesn’t mean
you can’t take action to affect the outcome.. You have to take action,
and you will. But don’t forget that on any day, you can step out the
front door and your whole life can change in an instant – for better or
To an extent, the universe has a plan that’s always in motion. A
butterfly flaps its wings and it starts to rain – it’s a scary thought,
but it’s part of life’s cycle. All these little parts of the machine,
constantly working – sometimes forcing you to struggle, and sometimes
making sure you end up exactly in the right place at the right time.
