5 Harsh Truths I Have Learned About Life At Age 26

Published

on

At 26, I have learned many harsh truths about life I wish my younger-self knew. I believe I must share with you 5 of these truths.

  1. Not Everything Goes According to Our Plans

If you are in your 20s I believe you have already realized that not everything goes according to your plans.  I trust that there are many times you’ve planned something only to get the opposite of what you’ve planned.

We love planning because it makes us feel in control. However, most of the time many things happen that we had not planned for. You must not stop planning because of this phenomenon. 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.

  1. Romantic Relationships in Your 20s Can Be a Waste of Time

Most of the romantic relationships you will 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 will not marry. For this reason, I believe that you’ll be better off if you invest your energy, time, and financial resources in your dream rather than a relationship.

  1. 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 that the hardships will last forever. Little do we know that things are always changing, and nothing is permanent.

You will 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 will 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

  1. 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 also realized that some of my friends felt bad whenever they believed I was making progress, and they 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.

  1. 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. Those who have an advantage are those who start following their dreams at a young age 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.

    I’m not so sure that your truths are that universal. But, that is the main truth you need to learn- what works for you- works for you. It may not work for another, but that’s perfectly ok, since you ARE unique.

    I like your truths, especially about things not going according to plan and seasons changing. Seasons do change and people change and it’s all a good thing. Also, things not going according to plan means that there could be something better waiting out there, that you never planned because you didn’t know about it. That is certainly true for me. I became a master gardener! It was not part of my plans at all. It just happened and I am happy for it. The one thing that I don’t really agree with is about fake friends. I have been fortunate enough to make some real, true, and lifelong friends. I’ve met up with fake friends, too, but I really don’t think that they are in the majority (at least, I hope not.)

      Good point. ‘things not going according to plan means that there could be something better.’ so inspiring

      I knew many people will disagree with the point, ‘most of your friends are fake.’ by the way I have truest friends too, but they are not as many as the fake friends.
      This point came from the fact that many friends disappeared when i became broke 8 years ago. Also, some felt bad when they realized that I was going my own way.
      My dad also experienced the same thing when he retired. He had many friends when he used to work. However, he was left with few friends after he retired.

    “Most of your friends are fake.”

    It is all about how we see the world, if we look at the true we will find the truth, if we look at the false we will find the false. It’s all inside us. Make fewer friends on social networks, and say no more the word ‘no’. Only when we are in control of our life do we become safer to find what is true and lasting.

      True, Mr.Alan, I agree its all about how we see the world.
      However, a fake person is fake regardless of your perception towards him.
      My definition of a fake friend is an unsupportive, and jealous friend. a friend who backbites you, and is with you just because of your social or financial position.

5 Great Benefits of Spending More Time Alone

Published

on

I’ve always been a social person who loved spending more time with people. However, my decision to curve my own path in October 2017 resulted in me spending more time alone.  Since then, I embraced solitude because I tasted its sweet fruits.

I realized the following benefits of solitude.

1.You Do More Useful Shit

Spending more time alone enabled me to find time for working towards my goals. In 2018, I managed to write articles all year, read and write books, and make money because of solitude.

Before embracing solitude, I was unable to do useful shit because I was always with my friends, and we liked spending our time arguing, joking, drinking, and smoking pot. We wasted lots of valuable time that we could have used to do useful shit.

2.You Stop Being Concerned About Other People’s Affairs

I realized that spending more time alone enabled me to stop being concerned about other people’s affairs. I had no one to tell me about John’s alcoholic monkey, Jerry’s cool rat, and Tom’s fucked up cat.

It dawned on me that the more I spent time with people, the more I wanted to know and think about their affairs. And the more I thought about their affairs, the more I wasted time comparing my life with theirs. Solitude thus allowed me to only think and care about me.

3.You Save More Money

Spending more time alone enabled me to save more money because I lacked the company that encouraged me to spend money on parties, clubs, and the latest footwear. I also saved more because I stopped spending on people to make them love my company.

4.You Engage in Deep Thinking

Being alone allowed me to engage in deep thinking during my free time. Deep thinking enabled me to discover many pearls of wisdom that I’ve shared in my blog posts and book. Earlier, it was almost impossible for me to engage in deep thinking during my free time because I spent it socializing.

5.You Know Thyself

Spending more time alone enabled me to face myself. With no one to occupy my energy and attention, I started thinking about my weaknesses, strengths, and passions. I discovered that my major weakness is the fear of rejection, and my major strength is a strong will power. I also realized that I loved reading, researching, and watching wildlife documentaries. It was hard for me to discover such things before embracing solitude.

Conclusion

These are the five major benefits of solitude that make me want to spend more time alone. You can try spending more time alone and you’ll experience them personally. Anyway, I believe there are many more benefits of solitude that many bloggers have written about. You are free to add them in the comment box below.

Love Ya. Thanks for reading my shit

A Summary of The 22 Harsh and Hidden Truths I Have Learned in 2018. HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Published

on

This is my last article in 2018 and I would love to share with you what I’ve learned this year. 2018 has been a wonderful year for me. I’ve known wonderful people from different parts of the world through my blog. I’ve also posted articles consistently, experienced the power of solitude, and learned the following harsh and hidden truths about life.

  • Prayer Changes Nothing If You Don’t Take Action

If you want to achieve your goals, work hard towards them. Don’t just pray and expect a god to help you achieve them. If you do so you’ll literally achieve your goals in your dreams.

  • ‘Bad’ Things Will Still Happen Even If You Pray

Prayer doesn’t prevent ‘bad’ things from happening. The world will throw loads of shit at you even if you pray 1,000 times a day.

  • God/Infinite Intelligence Exists Whether You Like it or Not.

After studying several biology books and watching many wildlife documentaries, I realized that the universe is intelligently designed by something with intelligence beyond our measure. Many people call it God.

  •  Your Body is Intelligent

The body is very intelligent. It makes you feel hungry when it needs food, and it knows how to digest the food and absorb crucial nutrients necessary for its growth.

  • Reading Books Makes You Wiser

I have learned a lot through reading, and I also realized that most wise people read a lot.

  • You Have to Train Yourself to Be Strong

Life is good but sometimes shit happens. Be strong when shit happens, and believe that you are powerful than your experiences because they are an illusion.

  • If You Wish the Best for Others You Won’t feel Bad When Good Things Happen to them.

Wishing good things to happen to others makes you rejoice with them when good things happen to them. However, wishing bad things to happen to others will result in you feeling bad when good things happen to them. Therefore, always wish the best for others and you’ll never be resentful.

  •  Living the Life of Your Dreams is Possible But Not Easy

I extensively studied the biographies of many folks living their dreams and realized that they are all ordinary people who were brave enough to follow their dreams. I, therefore, concluded that it’s possible for each of us to live our dreams. However, I also realized that it’s hard to live our dreams because we’ll have to make sacrifices, work hard, and persist until we achieve them.

  • Life Fuckin Goes On When You Die

Only a few people will cry when you die. But the ants, lizards, cows, my cute naughty cat, and 99% of the world will continue with their normal schedule. Be Humble.

  • Generosity Attracts Love

People love generous folks, and they are willing to die for them. Politicians know this and they become extremely generous during political campaigns.

  • Having A Job is not The Only Way To Make Money

I always believed that I can only make money through employment. However, this year, this belief changed after meeting folks who make lots of money from their businesses and craft.

  • It’s Hard to Build A Successful Business

Building a successful business requires you to persevere when you experience losses. It also requires you to take huge risks and build business skills.

  • If You Are Expecting Success, Expect Jealousy Too.

Not everybody, including your close friends and relatives, will be happy when you succeed. But don’t worry, that’s part of life.

  • You Can Connect With Infinite Intelligence/God

Infinite Intelligence is in everything within and around you. You become highly connected to it when you focus all your energies on one thing.

  • Never Ever Give A Fuck About What Other People Think About You

You will never live authentically if you are concerned with other people’s thoughts about you. You’ll focus so much on doing things that please others if you care so much about other people’s thoughts.

  • The Law of Attraction Works

You attract what you mostly think about because your thoughts shape your actions.

  • Maybe Ghosts, Mermaids, and Fairies Exist

I read somewhere that there are forests with viruses so deadly that a human being can die a few hours after entering them. Maybe ghosts and fairies live in these forests. Besides this, a big part of our oceans is unexplored; maybe mermaids dwell in this part.

  • Solitude is Awesome

Solitude makes you think deeply, and it creates lots of free time which you can use to make your dreams a reality.

  • You Don’t Have to Be Old For You to Be Wise

Contrary to popular belief, you can be wise at a young age. Remember, the Christian Messiah: Jesus, was wise at age 12.

Yes, wisdom comes with experience but it also comes with enlightenment and you can be enlightened at any age.

  • You Might Never Progress If You Fear Taking Risks

Never expect to progress when you play safe. Progress requires risk-taking since risks open you up to many opportunities and allow you to fail forward.

  • Academic Education Is Bullshit

Academic education trains you to memorize a lot of information that you’ll never use in real life. Besides this, it doesn’t make you wiser as it never shows you how to navigate through the journey of life.

The only good thing about academic education is that it helps you to read, write, and calculate.

  • I Love Game of Thrones

Sorry, I know this is a personal development blog but I just had to put this on my list. Game of Thrones is one of the few Television Shows I watch and I can’t wait for the final season. The TV show makes me forget everything for a moment and dissolve into wonderland. Can’t wait to see who will eventually win the GAME OF THRONES.

Conclusion

Hope these truths had an impact on you.

Anyway, there are many hidden truths I have learned after dedicating my life to discovering how life and the Infinite Intelligence works. I believe that life is so good and we can experience heaven on earth if we live in alignment with the universal flow.

I believe you already know that this is my last article in 2018. But don’t worry, I will give you more nuggets of wisdom when I’m back in January. I have worked so hard this year, and I think I need a break. And to all readers who have a dream, keep working on it and remember that if you don’t give up you won’t fail. I have not yet achieved my dreams but I know that I will achieve them soon if I work hard and persevere enough.

Every great person was like you and me. They just persevered when others gave up, and all they cared about was achieving their dreams; nothing else. We’ll also achieve our dreams if we just don’t give up. The universe has already given us whatever we want. We just have to play our part by working hard and trusting the future.

Thank you so much for reading this blog post.

I also thank all my loyal readers, especially Alan Maicon and Steve Ogut for making me feel that some people out there love my work. Thanks a lot.

ANYWAY

You can grab my free book and receive enlightening knowledge I have learned this year.

And lastly, always remember Jim Rohn’s words.

“Make plans like an adult and believe in them like a child, and the most incredible things will happen.’ –  Jim Rohn
