I’ve heard that your 20’s are suppose to be your selfish years. I agree this to some extent as I believe you should always give back. Below is 10 things that change who you are in your 20’s.

1. Travel

Being able to travel the world and explore new cultures and outlooks on life shape you to be who you are today. Travel the world while your young and explore cultures and people.

2. Relationships

When your in your 20’s your more than likely to be in more than one relationship throughout the years. Learn from the different people and find out what you liked and didn’t like about how that particular person made you feel.

3. Jump outside of your comfort level

You will never know who you truely are or who you could be if you stay within your comfort level. Although it can be daunting… more than less times you end up a better and stronger person because of it.

4. Experiment

Your 20’s is suppose to be when you find yourself, so experiment with your look, experiences and anything that you can grasp your hands on because you have nothing to loose.

5. Don’t forget about your family

Although they say your 20’s is suppose to be your selfish years never forget about the people who raised you to be where you are today. Always have time for your family, as they have always had time for you.

6. Save… Save… Save

Although I say explore the world around you, make sure you always have enough money for a back up plan. As much as we plan life to go a certain way, it can change in an instant. Store your money away as, you may thank yourself later.

7. Don’t be afraid to change your life course

When were 20 as much as we may believe we know what to do in life and have our whole life sketched out. YOU may change! Don’t be afraid to admit your initial thought is not where you want to be and follow a new path.

8. Fall down… And learn how to get back up again

They say that when we make mistakes that’s when we learn the most. Don’t be afraid to try something new and not be afraid to be knocked down because the greatest strength you will learn through this process is to be able to pick yourself up and again and keep trying. This skill of resilience can only be taught through practice and watching your role models.

9. Admit when your confused

Although we see our parents successful result in their career and life we didn’t get to see how they got to where they are. Inevitably they didn’t take a smooth road to success there were bumps and unpredictable turns. So when you get to one of these T-intersections and don’t know if you should turn left or right, ask someone who has been in your shoes before.

10. Enjoy life

Although my generation are so worried about being unemployed and broke and having to have a career, we sometimes forget to have fun! Go out with your friends, go travel, have that massage you’ve been longing for! Because you can! I would rather wake up when I’m 90 and know I did everything I wanted to do than say I earned a lot of money but missed out on family and friends events because I was busy. What would you rather?
