Okay, so I turn 27 tomorrow. My gift to you all, 27 points of advice nobody asked for :

  1. Never doubt your gut feeling, it’s almost always right.
  2. If it’s going to take just 5 minutes, do it right now.
  3. You’re never too old to order a Happy Meal.
  4. Accept who you are, it all starts from there.
  5. If you have an opportunity to make someone feel special, don’t miss it. Even if it’s a small gesture.
  6. Spend money & time on your health & fitness, you won’t regret it.
  7. Take bath everyday.. Duh?
  8. Do something you hate.. for a while. That’ll open your eyes and help you see things you actually love doing.
  9. How you do anything is how you do everything.
  10. Drink a lot of water.. Like really a lot of it.
  11. Learn to laugh at yourself.
  12. Money is a terrible master, but a great servant.
  13. Mindset is everything. You reap what you sow. You become what you think.
  14. If you find a situation or a person negative, detach yourself from it. Life is too short.
  15. Write, write & write. Writing your thoughts is therapeutic.
  16. Don’t attach your ego to the outcome. Don’t let ego rule your relationships.
  17. Effective communication solves most of our problems.
  18. Have a set of code/rules for your own self. If you don’t follow your own playbook, you’ll end up following other people.
  19. Hard work beats talent.
  20. Don’t try to cover up your emotions. Feel everything but don’t let anything rule your mind. Let it come, and let it go.
  21. Always avoid the victim mentality. You’re incharge of your life. Take control of it.
  22. It’s never too late. You have to decide if it’s “Day One” or “One day”.
  23. You don’t get what you deserve. You get what you negotiate.
  24. Expectations are shit. Avoid having them.
  25. Failure is OK. Just one step behind success.
  26. Don’t take yourself too seriously.
  27. Even a bad day has 24 hours.
