20 Secrets for Your Twenties – Pearls of Wisdom to Share

All Groan Up website shares 20 of the common sense insights from the book ” 101 Secrets for your Twenties ”.

It seems a lot of people are searching for advice that could help them on this journey called life…where was this advice when I was in my 20’s.

How many mistakes ( life experiences ) could I have not made or done differently ?

The best pieces of advice my grandmother had to offer me in my 20’s was:

* Choose your life’s mate carefully. From this one decision will come ninety percent of your happiness or misery.

* Say Please and Thank You a lot

*Live beneath your means

*Be forgiving of yourself and others but don’t forget

*Buy whatever kids are selling on card tables in their front yard.

*Treat everyone you met like you want to be treated.

*Donate two pints of blood every year.

*Don’t waste time learning the tricks of the trade….learn the trade.

*Stop blaming others. Take responsibility for every area of your life.

*Never mention being on a diet…live by example.

*Admit your mistakes.

*Remember all new sources are biased.

*Demand excellence and be willing to pay for it.

*Be brave. Even if your’e not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference.

*Hug a child after you discipline them.

*Don’t take good health for granted.

*When someone wants to hire you, even if it’s for a job you have little interest in, talk to them. Never close an opportunity until you have had a chance to hear the offer in person.

*In business and in family relationships, remember the most important thing is TRUST.

*If force into a physical fight, hit first and hit hard. ( I know many will not agree with this one) My grandmother was a sassy take no crap kind of lady that would give you her last dollar if you needed it. I am proud of her and to carry on her spirit for life.
