5 Things To Implement In Your Life Before Turning 21


21 is a magical number for everyone, and it’s always special. You can finally marry the girl of your dreams, get a credit card, drink beer, play at Vegas or do whatever you want.

At 21, we often have many friends who have chosen the wrong path. Of course, people learn from their mistakes, but it is wise to learn from others mistakes. These six things will help you in shaping your future.

Years from now, you will be far more embarrassed by how you handled an embarrassing and humiliating situation rather than the experience itself, so be true to yourself and your wants, be the bigger person, and hold your head high.

No alcohol/drugs

There will be stressful days, and your friends might offer you a cigarette, just say, “NO.” The cigarette was never made to solve problems and never will.

If you are tensed about that “something,” go and fight it, don’t be a coward by trying to solve your problems with the help of drugs and Alcohol.

There will also be a time when your friends will force you to try it once, resist those moments. No matter what I write here, the final call always depends on you.?

YOU are the only one who can say NO to such bad influences; it’s your mental strength.

 

There is NO Shortcut

Shortcuts do not exist in reality. Stop living in a world of fantasy; everything looks super easy in dreams, but that’s why we call it a “dream” anyway. Face reality! You have to take stair for your success; there are no elevators. Just ask yourself, “Am I working hard enough to achieve my dreams in the next X Years?”

You will get the honest answer right that instant. Your inner voice never lies.
