10 Things I’ve Learned in 30 Years

I wish I knew when I was 20.


#1. Travel

Travel. Travel often. Travel everywhere. Go to the places you have never been and do the things you have never done before.

Explore new cultures, talk to new people. Get an inspiration.

A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.

Travelling is one of the best investments you can make.

#2. Time

Time is extremely precious.

Learn to spend your time wisely. Don’t spend too much time on the battles that are not yours, not all of them are worth fighting.

Do the things that matter to you.

#3. People

Stick with people who pull the magic out of you. It is rare to find them.

The height of your potential is predicted by the people who surround you.

Vibes never lie.

#4. Health

Sleep. Exercise. Eat healthily. Laugh a lot.

Take care of your body.

To change the world, build a business or help others, you will need to have your body healthy first.

#5. Mind

Learn to keep your mind calm and control your emotions.

This is a superpower.

The moment you choose that other people or circumstances cannot affect you, you can focus on important stuff and make the right decisions.

#6. Create new things

Do not spend too much time chasing someone else’s dream.

Work on yourself. Learn new stuff. Challenge status quo. Think.

The doors will open.

#7. Social media

Limit your time on social media.

Go out and talk to people. Make new friends. Make real connections.

Do more things that make you forget about Facebook or Instagram.

#8. Say NO

Learn to say NO.

Make time for important stuff. Start to focus.

No need to explain. No need to excuse.

#9. Trust your intuition

The intuitive mind is a gift.

Start to listen to your intuition.

Deep inside you always know what is best for you.

#10. Make plans

Live in the moment but plan two steps ahead.

Life is like a game of chess. To win you have to make a move.

Choose your playground. City. Country. Field.

Create your network and start to build something you will be proud of.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
