Thank you friends for all your amazing messages yesterday. I had more than enough love and i am grateful. I am grateful for where i find myself and the privilege of being what and who i am to all those who poured their love on me yesterday. May God bless you all richly! I LOVE YOU!
I am over 30, and have been over 30 for a few years. But i thought it today, and about all the things i would wished i had locked down in my life before i turned 30, and i came up with the following ten points. Enjoy.
1.YOU DO NOT KNOW THAT MUCH
The more you learn, read books, study life and get on your grind, the more you realize how much you do not know. I discovered that knowing more humbles you, because you realize how much you do not know.
2. HAVE A DEFINED PATH
If you haven’t defined your life path/program before you are 30, and are pursuing that path, then you will be miserable. I read somewhere that 30 is the new 40. Welcome to mid-life crisis at 30!
3. LEARN HOW TO SELL
In this life, there are only two types of people – sellers & buyers, where do you fall in? Sellers rule the world, buyers are slaves to them. Bill Gates, Mark Zukerberg, Dangote are all sellers. If you envy their power, emulate their process.
4. IF YOU WANT TO BE MARRIED, MEET HER
I found out how difficult it was to meet people after 30. Like my friend Mena put it, prepare for serious issues to be dealt with if you miss out on mumu love. As you grow older and get more into life and into things, expect to meet people who are not that simple to deal with because they have come a long way too.
5. GET A MENTOR-SHIP SYSTEM
If you want to go far, take a trip on the shoulders of those who got here before you. I discovered that wealthy, successful people are always eager to share their wealth of experience with driven, focused people. Don’t be bought by those folk who despise successful people and think they want to ‘steal’ their ideas. Your ideas are at the risk of being stolen if you are alone and hungry. Get MENTORSHIP guys.
6. BE IN BUSINESS
You deceive yourself when you say you are not the business type. God created us all to take responsibility, create value, offer value, manage value, etc. Your financial future needs to have a lot of control by you. Settling for a job forever is tantamount to irresponsibility in my opinion. Learn to save, invest in real estate, grow wealth, earn extra income. I recommend network marketing for those who want to learn part-time and grow their business skills. Why do i say all these? People retire sand then start looking for something to do, to keep body and soul together. Don’t retire before you start business, you will fail woefully.
7. GET FINANCIAL INTELLIGENCE
Adults who do not have a grip on their finances in a way that ensures they are not eating all they are making, are not attractive at all. You must spend less than you earn, have multiples streams of income and build your reserve, investments, etc to the point where your money is working for you. It doesn’t happen in 50 years, it can take 5 years. After 30, it is ugly to be so clue-less, but really, even if you are 50, its never too late. Start NOW!
8. KNOW WHY YOU ARE ALIVE
I believe people should ask “why” before getting into anything at all in their lives. It is crazy to go through life for 10 years and not know why you do what you do, or did what you have done. It is unbelievable but that is how majority of humanity live their lives. You need to sit back and find out why you are here and start threading that path before you are 30. It will save you a lot of trouble.
9. GET A VOICE WITH GOD
You didn’t get here by yourself, i am sure you know that by now. Beyond acknowledging this, you need to find your spot in God. Let me help you first by telling you that you are a co-creator with God, you were meant to dominate the world and be a god here on earth delivering God’s value as his representative. Know this and take your place. It puts all of life in perspective.
10. HAVE PROTEGES
All that you are is a combo of the value loads of others have added to you, deliberately have people you are pouring into. Inflow and outflow are key to sustaining your operating on the cutting edge. If you get so much, read so much, learn a lot, do so much, you should have those your are pouring into. There is something called information constipation. Ensure someone is getting taught, inspired and mentored by you. If you give, you will be given more.
This list is not exhaustive. If you have others, please add them in the comment section and lets make it much more comprehensive. To your success! God bless you!
