How scary is it to think you only have a certain amount of time to accomplish the things and experiences you want in life. How often are we told that, there is a timeline of when you should have accomplished things in your life. 

Well, I’m here to tell you the honest truth.. There kinda is. I know it kinda sucks to hear that, but I think some quality advice I can give those of you who are needing some motivation is this. You DO only have a certain amount of time to do things and experiences before you loose interest. Not because you are too old, or the opportunity isn’t still there.. but sometimes amazing experiences can pass you by if you don’t jump on them in the moment. One of my mentors said something very brilliant to me and he said “don’t rush it, or slow it down.”

If an amazing trip to India is offered, you can afford it, it won’t mess up your future career plans in a detrimental way… Go for it. If you meet someone amazing that you fall madly in love with, be in love. If you have the opportunity to advance your career, step up to the challenge. 

Do NOT turn down opportunities in life for three things:

Love

Travel

Career Growth

If you have to choose between one of the three choose what feels right in the moment. The great theory is that whatever you choose is right, because in that moment it was exactly what you want. Don’t let the fear of making the wrong choose stop you from making a decision at all. This is why you do have a bit of a time stamp on opportunities. 

Not making a decision is making a decision. It’s making the choice to not grow. 

You only have a certain amout of time before a new opportunity will present itself, and the previous opportunity is not an option anymore. You have to decide what will make you happy in that moment and go for it. Unapologetically, going for what you want in the moment will make sure that you don’t live in a what if mindset.

I’m a firm believer that your twenties are for exploring, making mistakes, falling in love, and growing. Living like this in your 30’s could potentially lead to a more interesting 40’s. So yes, you do have a little bit of a time stamp on opportunities, but the key is “don’t rush it, or slow it down” take your life in stride and live hard. 

I know this was a short episode today, but I feel like it was worth while information and pretty solid advice wrapped up into a few short minutes. As usual, if you have any questions please leave a comment at Thingsiwishiknew.life or within Itunes. 

Carpe Diem!
