5 Things I Wish I Knew Earlier In Life

Are you against having known things earlier in life?

Life would have been much easier and less heartbreaking if this was the case.

From personal experience, five things I wish I knew earlier in life:

1. Build Great Habits

Habit: A routine of behavior that is repeated regularly and tends to occur subconsciously.

The habits you keep every day make up your life.

The health, wealth, relationship, spiritual, and belief habits you do or do not form determine the course of your life.

Make habits that serve the betterment of your life.

The difficulty is the initial weeks and months are uncomfortable, uncertain, and painful.

When you go through the initial stage of suffering to cement this habit, you will have a habitual action embedded in your subconscious that will serve your life in whatever it is.

2. Go Outside Your Comfort Zone

The easiest thing to say, the hardest thing to do.

The reason it's so hard to go outside your comfort zone is that comfort is genetically wired into your brain.

Staying comfortable keeps you safe in order to preserve your life and pass on your genes to the next generation.

You will never grow in comfort. The only way to grow is outside of comfort and familiarity.

It is liberating to accomplish something you were terrified to do!

You know exactly this feeling. You build up and event in your mind days before it happens.

You come out the other side feeling like a piano has lifted from your back.

This liberation is one of the most important things for you to experience.

3. Emotions Come And Go

In the moment it feels strong. In a few hours you will be focused on something else.

Time is your biggest friend when it comes to healing emotions.

The longer you rehearse and imagine the experience, the longer you will hold onto it.

Ways to cope with negative emotions:

  • Take a walk

  • Delete all memories and people involved

  • Journal

  • Meditate

  • Write out your emotions, let it sit, and delete it

  • Give it time before you respond

4. Be Your Own Person

You're influenced by your environment.

Parents, coaches, friends, teachers, and society will tell you who you should and should not be.

They will judge you for disobeying their advice and resent your progress towards creating circumstances specific to what you want out of life.

Decide for yourself who you want to be. Do the things you want to do in life.

If you try to please every one, you end up pleasing no one.

5. Value Learning

You can learn your way into anything.

Learning requires a lot of humility. Because you are not capable of achieving the things you want right now, otherwise you would already have them.

Reading, audiobooks, seminars, and workshops will aid in your learning.

You decide what you want to learn. You decide what lessons and teachings you want to adopt into your life.

Be an original thinker.

Question everything and come to your own conclusions based on knowledge from others.


Have A Great Morning Routine

Your morning sets up your entire day.

Accumulated over time shapes the course of your life and the results you do or do not get.

Tips for a great morning:

  • Wake up early

  • First hour free of technology

  • Exercise

  • Set intentions for the day

  • Meditate

  • Take your time
