Your 20s are a roller coaster ride as you figure out your goals, deal with rejections, try new things, and put things into perspective. While some succeed in achieving their dreams, others make mistakes and feel lost. But it is okay. Sometimes wrong paths can take you in the right direction.
Here’s some life advice from people who’ve been there and done it all.
Rejections are always heavy, but they give you an opportunity to evolve. Do not let rejections push you into a black hole of despair. Instead, think about why you were rejected, what you need to work on and which skills you need to polish. On the other hand, you also need to understand that some things are not meant for you, which is fine. Just move on and be ready to embrace more incredible things awaiting you out there.
You will come across a plethora of careers that will claim to give you handsome pay. Your ambition may drive you to explore them all and be a master of trades, but this may not be the path to success. It’s wiser to focus on one goal and work to achieve it. Of course, you could also be a master of all trades, but you must take one step at a time. If you are interested in various fields, you can learn about them. However, you will have to have a plan for which area you want to pursue.
Be yourself, no matter how different. It is easy to walk in crowds and speak the words of leaders, but this path makes your growth stagnant. Instead, express yourself without hesitation to stand out from the crowd. Let your unconventional self come out, and you will observe how things fall into place, and people are more drawn toward you.
If you are unhappy with your job or do not feel any sense of achievement, move on. Do not work just because it gives you a stable income every month. You deserve much more than that; however, you will have to struggle for it. Take risks, explore new jobs, and discover your skills. Let your job be a happy place where you feel you are growing and learning, not just mechanically working.
