1. Always have faith and trust GOD.

Always believe in GOD for HE knows what the future has in store for you and what is best for you. GOD gives you the strength to endure your struggles and always helps you in the most unexpected ways.


2. Believe in yourself

Believe that you are capable and have the potential to do the impossible, no matter how hard it is. Believe that you’re beautiful and a kind-hearted soul with so much love and strength.


3. Don’t compare yourself with others.

Always compete with yourself instead of competing with others. Never compare yourself with your friends, classmates, family, etc. because everyone is different and unique in their own way.


4. Never expect anything since expectations lead to disappointments.

Never have high expectations and expect anything in return. Some people don’t reciprocate the same amount of love and affection you give them and when you have high expectations, you believe to get the same thing in return.


5. Step out of your comfort zone

This is definitely important, especially in your 20’s. Embrace change and try to really step out of your comfort zone. As they say, “life starts at the end of your comfort zone.”


6. Be grateful and appreciate the small things in life

Even though life gives you so many ups and downs, it’s very important to be thankful for the small things in life that allow you to survive and face those periods of hardships or positive transformations.


7. Never give up since struggles in life make you a stronger person

Sometimes, GOD tests you on whether you will be able to survive your times of hardships and downfalls. Those tests are for you to realize that no matter what obstacles that come your way, you should be strong enough to face those challenges and achieve anything that you put your mind to.


8. Let go of past friendships, relationships, etc but still cherish the memories.

It’s important to understand that not all friendships or relationships last a lifetime and not everyone is meant to stay in your life. If you feel that some relationships are toxic or your effort is just not reciprocated, then you should consider letting it go and instead look forward to even better ones in the future.


9. Everyone achieves their dreams at their own pace

There is no rule that says that you have to accomplish your goals by a certain time frame or age. Some people get a job right after graduation and some people wait for a year or two to get the right opportunity.


10. Health is Wealth

Last but not least, one thing that should be learned and is very important since childhood is that health is wealth.
