Life is all about learning and experiencing new things. So, here are 7 important life lessons that you must learn before turning 30.
1. Your Soul is your wisest and most trusted adviser
Pay close attention to what others have to tell you, to what books have to teach you, but never make other people’s voices more important than your own inner voice. Always remember that within you lies the answer to all of your life’s questions. It’s all in your heart. In the whole world, you won’t find anyone as wise, as reliable as your own Soul. Your Soul is your wisest and most trusted adviser, the voice that connects you to the Infinite Source that created the whole Universe. Trust that voice.
2. Life is a precious gift
Life is a valuable and precious gift that is meant to be treasured, appreciated and enjoyed. It is given to you freely and openly and your only task is to enjoy it and make the best of it.
3. Friends come and go
Friends come and go. Some of them might stay with you for a longer period while others for a shorter period of times. But don’t be sad. Just love them all. Love them when they are with you and love them when they are away from you. Love everything and everyone but without being attached to anything or anyone. Just love them all.
4. The road less travel can be a lonely one
If you take the road less travelled, going to places where more most people don’t dare to go, and doing things that most people don’t have the courage to do, don’t expect to have a nonstop party. For this isn’t a crowded place, on the contrary, it is quite a lonely one at times.
5. Happiness is a balance between holding and letting go
Happiness is nothing more than a balance between holding on and letting go. In order for you to be really happy, all you have to do is let go of the things that make you unhappy and hold on to those things that make you happy. It’s that simple and yet that complicated.
6. Fear is nothing but an illusion
No matter how real and frightening your fears might appear, and no matter how much pain you might feel because of them, the truth of the matter is that fear has no real essence. Fear has no real power over you, except that which you give to it. Your fears are nothing but illusions, illusions that keep you from being fully aligned with you truly are. The pain you feel whenever you cling to fear doesn’t come from fear itself but rather from your belief that fear has the power to hurt you. And when you give the fear power of you, making it look real and solid, you move away from who you are at the core level. When you cling to fear, you immediately give up on love and you give up on yourself. You move away from your true nature, your real essence, which is love, and that’s what’s causing you to suffer, that’s what’s causing all that pain.
7. Pour your heart and soul into all that you do
Do your best not to chase money, fame, and fortune. For none of these things will ever bring you long lasting happiness. Instead, seek to always do your best. To pour your heart and soul into everything you do. Always aspire to offer real value and to create work that matters. By doing so abundance will follow you. For money is nothing but a by-product of doing what you love.
