If you are in Your 20’s, Here is What You Should Do Next

Slow down. Stop being so nervous. YOU GOT THIS. You are capable of anything you put your mind to – Madeline Johnson

Here is what I recommend you do . . . 

Slow down. Stop being so nervous. YOU GOT THIS. You are capable of anything you put your mind to – just stop with the worry and fear. It only holds you back. 

Take care of your health. Workout every day. Get that body you want. Meditate. Do yoga. Take EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA care of yourself everyday. Get weekly massages if you can. Do your nails, your hair. Pamper yourself every single day. 

Stop spending the money on jewelry, clothes, food and furniture. You have it all now. Get yourself on a budget.  You must put the money back into your career or your business in order for the business to grow and build savings for your future. Cook at home. Stop eating out all of the time.

Start paying down the student loan to $0.00 and start saving for your retirement.  Compounded interest and smart investments are your friend.

Save up money for a down payment on a house or a condominium. You need to have a separate savings of at least $100,000 in order to buy something decent. Start now. Save as much as you can and keep your credit clean.  Live below your means.

Stop with the “I need a vacation”. You can have one next year. You need to take care of yourself every day and you won’t get so burnt out and stressed out that you feel you have to run away. You don’t have the money yet to do the travel every three months  thing that you want to do. Focus on buying something to invest in.  

Don’t take things so personally. Don’t be so open with everyone that works for you. Seriously.  Business is business. Your team members are not your best friends. You have look for great best friends outside of work. One or two of them. That is all you have time for.  It might be your sister or your brother and one other person.

Slow down. You can’t do everything at once. So stop trying dammit. Slow, thoughtful, enjoyable. The day-to-day is what must be enjoyed. Have fun just “being”, have fun at work. Have fun with your friends. Enjoy the process of living.

Appreciate everyone in your life. All of your team members. Your family. Everyone. Be ever grateful and stop complaining. Complaining is draining and does nothing for you. Never complain again. It is a WASTE OF TIME. Pray instead. Give up your problems to God. Say – Dear God, help me with this problem – and watch the miracle happen. You are never alone. God is working with you all the time. You are not designing your life alone. God is doing it with you.

Understand that it is better to be selective and find the right person than jumping into the next thing. Stop believing everyone. They all lie during the getting to know you process. They exaggerate. Forgive them and get the best out of them.

Keep your life simple and never cynical. Simplify everything  you do so a five year old could understand it. If someone is cynical or complicating things, let them go.

I help health, fitness, nutrition and beauty businesses grow. Specifically, businesses building things to make us look and feel great, so that includes fashion, tech and spas too. I have two sites, one about marketing and brand building, which is mj.works and another UndisputedOrigin.com which I started to inspire everyone to become the very best they can be while leading more purposeful lives filled with gratitude and greatness. Both sites include studying and curating the very best experts and masters for improving performance, achieving success and living a thoughtful and intentional life. I am also obsessed with how technology can improve our health, fitness, nutrition, meditation and mindful practices while reducing stress and creating calm amidst the chaos of modern existence. Both sites are about my interest in self-discovery and personal growth.
