At 26, I’ve learned many harsh truths I wish my younger-self knew. I believe I must share with you 5 of these truths.
- Not Everything Goes According to Our Plans
If you are in your 20s I believe you’ve already realized that not everything goes according to your plans because you might be living in a different neighborhood from the one you planned, or studying at a university you disliked.
You must not stop planning because of this phenomena. Instead, keep planning, but know that sometimes things might not happen according to your plans. And when things don’t go as you planned, just remember that everything happens for the good for those who trust life.
- Romantic Relationships in Your 20s Can Be a Waste of Time
Most of the romantic relationships you’ll establish in your 20s will waste your time and resources. I sometimes regret focusing too much on romantic relationships in my early 20s because I gained nothing from them. I wish I focused on my dreams instead of wasting my precious time on stupid relationships.
These relationships mostly lead to emotional pain and stress, and sometimes you might invest so much in a person you won’t marry. For this reason, I believe you’ll be better off if you invest your energy, time, and financial resources in your dream rather than a relationship.
- Seasons Change
Nothing is constant. Things are always changing. You might be financially stable today, but end up extremely broke at the end of the year. Conversely, you might be broke today but end up with more than enough money tomorrow.
The biggest mistake we make is believing that our present conditions will last forever. For instance, when faced with hardships, we often succumb to depression because we think the hardships will last forever. Little do we know that nothing is permanent.
You’ll attain a constant state of inner peace if you realize that things are always changing because, when you are in good times you won’t worry about things changing, and when in difficult times, you’ll know that good days are coming.
‘The seasons change and the summer will become winter. There are days when crops are greatly harvested and days when the seasons are too rough to plant.’ – EmpowerThyself
- Most of Your Friends Are Fake
Three years after completing my high school education, I realized that most of my friends were fake. Many people, including those I believed were true friends stopped associating with me because I was broke. I tried to bond with them but my efforts were futile.
Moreover, I realized that some of my friends felt bad when they believed I was making progress, and felt good when I was in difficult situations. For this reason, I have less than 5 friends today. I decided to not waste my time on making friends because most of them are useless.
- Follow Your Dreams as Soon as Possible if You Want to Live the Life of Your Dreams
Earlier this year, I almost gave up on my dreams after it dawned on me that many people who live their wildest dreams started chasing them at a very early age. For instance, most actors started acting at an early age, and most musicians started chasing their dreams when they were teenagers.
I, therefore, thought it was too late for me because I started chasing my dreams at age 25. However, I now have faith because I realized a number of successful people who managed to live their dreams despite chasing them later in life.
It’s never too late to follow your dreams, but it’s hard to follow them when you have bills to pay and children to care. People who follow their dreams at a young age have the advantage because they have few responsibilities.
Therefore, the earlier the better. If you want to do something, start doing it now. Don’t postpone it because the older you get, the tougher it becomes to follow your dreams.

You are Awakened. So What?
Knowledge that is discovered must bear fruit in action. All that we know and gain through knowing must be harvested to become that which we are. This is the Law – Manly P. Hall, Self-Unfoldment by Disciplines of Realization
Today, several things prove that the masses are awakening. For instance, many folks are realizing that we are controlled by the Illuminati, and many more are noticing that we are not only bodies, but we are also souls, and therefore, we are powerful beings. Besides this, many people have realized that the law of attraction works since several scientific experiments have proved that the mind affects physical reality.
However, despite awakening to such facts, nothing is changing. For instance, despite awakening to the fact that the Illuminati is controlling the world, people are doing nothing to stop this secret society. Also, despite that people now know that they are powerful beings, they cannot perform miracles, and they still worry about the future and fear going broke. For this reason, the awakening is useless because it isn’t helping us.
The ruling classes have noticed this phenomenon, and this is why they continue oppressing us. They know that although people have awakened, there’s nothing they are doing with the awakening. They have observed that people still embrace negative emotions such as fear despite knowing that their emotions affect reality. They have also realized that many people have not gained special powers as a result of the mass awakening.
For these reasons, I think it’s time we put our awakening into practice, or it will be useless. It’s pointless to know many facts about the elite and spirituality, yet there’s nothing we are doing to prove that this knowledge is advantageous.
We must take action.
We must ensure that everyone knows about the Illuminati so that we unite and fight against these folks. Also, we must use the knowledge that we are souls/powerful beings to rise above our egoic selves, perform miracles, practice out-of-body experiences, and lucid dream because all the knowledge we’ve gained from the awakening will be useless if not put into practice. For as Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri observed, ‘If knowledge is not put into practice, it does not benefit one.’
If we don’t put our knowledge into practice, there will be no difference between us and the un-awakened. We will be similar to those who know nothing about spirituality and the elite, and this lack of difference will encourage these people to mock us. They will then believe that awakening is bullshit because they will realize that those who claim to be awakened are gaining nothing from awakening.
It’s, therefore, our responsibility to prove to them that awakening is beneficial – through action – so that they know what they are missing by not striving to awaken.
Thanks for reading. I hope you’ll take this message seriously

It’s All Risky: Therefore, Stop Avoiding Risk
‘My life changed when I discovered that it’s all risky. Getting married is risky, having children is risky, going into business is risky, investing your money is risky. It’s all risky.’ – Jim Rohn
When I started blogging and decided to no longer work 9-to-5, most of my friends thought I was crazy. They urged me to quit my blogging career because it’s risky, and they advised me to look for a safe and secure job that would guarantee a better future.
Their advice made me realize that many people fear taking risks. They avoid taking risky career paths, and they choose careers that guarantee a safe and secure future. Little do they know that everything is risky.
For instance, although a 9-to-5 job promises security, it’s also risky because the boss can fire you at any time for any reason. Moreover, the massive job-cuts that are occurring globally prove that 9-to-5 jobs are as risky as creative endeavors.
These job-cuts also prove that nothing, even when it seems secure, is 100% riskless because we are never 100% sure of the outcome of the paths we take – whether risky or not.
For this reason, we should stop avoiding some things because we think they are risky. We must learn to control our fears and try doing what we think is risky, particularly if it promises a good future.
Therefore, if you are young and you don’t have many responsibilities, and you feel like venturing into entrepreneurship instead of working 9-to-5, you must do so even when you feel that entrepreneurship is risky. Remember, a 9-to-5 job is also risky since many people have been fired from jobs they thought were secure.
For instance, Jim Carrey’s father was fired despite thinking that working as an accountant was safer than being a comedian. For as Jim Carrey put it, ‘My father could have been a great comedian, but he didn’t believe that was possible for him, and so he made a conservative choice. Instead, he got a safe job as an accountant, and when I was 12 years old he was let go from the safe job, and our family had to do whatever we could to survive.’
Just like Jim Carrey’s father, we might regret choosing a path we thought was safe if we avoid taking risky paths. To avoid regret and ensure that we live a fulfilling life with millions of possibilities, we must choose the risky paths and realize that there’s nothing to lose. After all, everything we have, including our bodies, is borrowed from mother earth. As well, the riskier the path, the more fulfilling and adventurous it is.
Therefore, don’t fear taking risks. Remember, everything is risky.
‘Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.’ – Mark Twain
