Your 20s are undoubtedly the most pivotal time in your life. While there are plenty of temptations and distractions, the decisions you make here are truly what dictate your future, as the weak fall and only the strong survive.

Do you have what it takes to become a monumental success? Or will you live out a life of mediocrity? The choice is up to you. While many think they have all the answers and the keys to success, we have seen too many times before those people make the same pitfalls.

This is the time for you to hustle, scrap and fight for the life that you want for yourself. You manifest your own destiny during these crucial years.

Every move you make is a test. Don’t f*ck it up. These are the 20 Mistakes You Don’t Want To Make In Your 20s.

  • 20. Working for money, not for building your dreams
    fatal1.jpg

    Never do anything just because it’s convenient for you. Look to challenge yourself and build your own dream instead of building someone else’s. Even if it doesn’t exactly make sense now, create something with great value so you can cash out big. Always look to the future and never for immediate compensation. What are you going to do with those weekly wages anyways? Stop being so entitled and pretending like you deserve cash, prizes and vacations just yet. You will soon realize once you’ve made it that making money doesn’t make you happy. It’s the journey.

  • 19. Thinking that this is the right time to fall in love
    tumblr_ml41gskeob1qkegsbo1_500.jpg

    While all of your friends might be doing it, don’t fall into the trap of getting into a relationship. Sure it seems like the right thing to do, but your 20s are entirely too crucial for your personal growth for you to be focusing on fulfilling the wishes of another individual. Not only does it make you complacent with where you are in life, but it makes your boring. When your business is at stake and your future is resting on your shoulders, the last thing you need is to be bogged down by an insecure lover rushing you home. Get out there, meet new people, test the limits and have fun. It will take you to the places you’ve dreamed of going.

  • 18. Trying to act like the man rather than learning how to become one
    tumblr_m7xtfv8b1u1r7b6zco1_1280.jpg

    Instead of going overboard on the Gucci monogram and bottles in the club, as if you just signed to Rocnation, spend the time focusing on your career. Every second counts and if more time is spent pretending to be the person you want to be instead of becoming that man, then you’ll sink in quick sand without even knowing it. A real man is willing to make sacrifices. If you aren’t down to put in the work, then please don’t act like you are. You can enjoy the success when you actually attain it.

  • 17. Making friends instead of earning trust
    tumblr_lxwx091fkn1qe72st.jpg

    The in-crowd may be tempting, but you’ll probably fall victim to surrounding yourself with social climbers and bottle whores. We know you feel entitled to celebrate, but please relax. It’s never attractive when you act as though this is the last time you’ll ever see this in life. Make connections with people based on trial and error, not presuppositions and drunk ranting about what they can do for your business. If you ever want people to take you seriously, then you have to take them seriously. Just because you think you trust someone doesn’t always mean you can. Heed any red flags in the past before jumping into any kind of venture with them.

  • 16. Not caring because you only live once — that is for fools
    tumblr_ml5tknqipt1qkegsbo1_500.jpg

    We all are guilty of irrational decision-making in our 20s. Fast people and fast times with money in your pocket always lead to over-extending yourself. A life of partying, heavy drugs and pretty much having that YOLO attitude will leave you flat on your ass. Get focused and lock into what you’re supposed to be doing. If you don’t know what that is, then you better figure it out ASAP.

  • 15. Making all your wants, needs
    tumblr_m5ivdsd9mj1qzkh2lo1_500.jpg

    Expensive women and cheap thrills coupled with the expensive sneakers should not be on the list of your needs. Setting the foundation for your business and team is far more important than updating your wardrobe and chasing sex. Distinguish between what you want and what you actually need. Make sure your priorities are in tact or you will lose your track.

  • 14. Forgetting that family comes first

    Those who supported you before anything deserve to be taken care of when you reach your success. If you aren’t doing this for the ones you love, then you’re not doing it right. Family comes first, no matter what happens. If you work for whom you love instead of just yourself, you will get far.

  • 13. Blaming anyone else but yourself for anything in life
    tumblr_m9c7tewpd81rtl93yo1_500.jpg

    Hold yourself accountable for everything. At the end of the day, all you have in the world is yourself — so go hard. Don’t look to anyone for answers and instead of making problems, create solutions. Whether it was that job you wanted, the funding you needed or the love you think you can’t live without, there is no one that can be held accountable in this universe except for you.

  • 12. Getting comfortable like you actually deserve down time
    sexy-girl-thumbs-up.jpg

    Unless you’re fornicating with Victoria’s Secret models in Monaco this weekend, you shouldn’t even be thinking about taking a break any time soon. You need a vacation? What have you accomplished? Mark Cuban spent 7 years building out his first business before he even took a break. Don’t get lazy now.

  • 11. Sticking with jobs that didn't teach you anything
    tumblr_m5gesis5vc1r6y3u1o1_500.jpg

    A bad job is like a bitchy girlfriend that gives bad head. Truthfully, the only reason you’re there is because it is the safest and easiest thing you know. Any job or relationship that allows for you to get comfortable should be avoided at all costs. The last scenario you could ever want is becoming like the rest of those miserable, 40-somethings faced with weekends of minivans and soccer practice.

  • 10. Following the crowd instead of forging against it
    black-guys-dope-swag-favim-com-441565.jp

    You can be aware of the trends, but never follow them. If all your time is spent trying to adjust to your surroundings, you’ll get lost in the crowd all the more easily. Success and greatness are constructed by trendsetters themselves, not those who latched on to what’s currently trending. We hope that you don’t have any aspirations to look like your favorite rapper. Temptation to be influenced by those who you aspire to be like is easy, but no one finds their calling following in the footsteps of another.

  • 9. Failing to energize those around you
    img_29301.jpg

    Although you may sometimes think there is a lack of talent in your networks — this is never the case. It is your sole responsibility to inspire, encourage and drive those around you to success. Failing to do so only confirms that you fall victim to that which you accuse others of. Change and greatness can be sparked everywhere, but bring it upon yourself to trigger it.

  • 8. Think you need to stop learning and growing
    tumblr_m247cglfdo1rrww62o1_500.jpg

    You have more zeros at the end of your bank statement, stamps in your passport and women in your bed than you had ever imagined. Don’t consider this your victory lap, but rather as a taste of greatness. Do you live to enjoy the moments you dreamed of or a lifetime of unimaginable success? The common misconception that once things are in your favor, you no longer have to put in the 3:00AM work hours is a dangerous problem. The fewer nights that you’re willing to put in the work, the fewer opportunities you will have to celebrate your achievements in the future.

  • 7. Thinking that anyone will ever pay you back
    tumblr_m7s8fzsezi1r6ic5to1_500_large.png

    Your 20s will be accompanied with a slew of poor investments by yourself and those around you. Whether rich or poor, there will always be someone in your circle that will need a helping hand. If you ever think you’re going to see that money again, you’re sorely mistaken. If there were a plan of action and re-investment, then the truth is that you will not see $1 back. Times are tough, especially in your 20s and finding a route back to financial freedom is often seen only when winning the lotto or signing your first deal with Ca$h Money Records. Of course miracles do happen, but the probabilities that you’ve essentially given the money away are far too high.

  • 6. Spending your money on women who aren't escorts
    tumblr_m8rvo1mpd51r77nvho1_500.png

    Your sex life is an investment — and the smarter the deals you execute, the savvier of an investor you become. Free sex is the most expensive sex in the world. Instead of navigating through an ambiguous investment in which you shower your woman with cash and prizes for the mediocre sex provided, deal with a professional as soon as possible. Although some of you may immediately jump to the negative connotations of a woman who is paid for sex, we suggest you take one step back. As an entrepreneur herself, why would you not want to deal with someone who has the same honesty and integrity that you do. Want a best friend? Buy a puppy. Want great sex? Call an escort.

  • 5. Holding on to friends that waste your time and add no value to your life
    see-how-the-rich-kids-of-instagram-spent

    You’ll be sucked down into the abyss right with them if you don’t cut the fat of the group. Family and friends could have been great to you as a child, but if they no longer hold the value and inspiration that is needed for you to thrive in life, then cut them loose. The only individuals you should be surrounding yourself with are those that challenge your ideas and motivate you to find the next solution to your problems. No, not the pessimistic assholes who shoot down your ideas with their negativity, but rather the ones who genuinely want to see you succeed no matter what you do in life.

  • 4. Forgetting about the piggy bank and spending every dollar you have
    anti-tabac4.jpg

    If our check is for $9, than we’re most likely spending $30. Between credit cards, school loans and every other avenue for attaining a quick dollar, our need for immediate gratification is worse than ever. The truth is it’s about making more money, not saving it. But at the same time, if you have no means for expanding your revenue channels then you must be able to save a few dollars here and there. No one like to have to walk to work because they blew every dollar at LAVO.

  • 3. Mistaking safe sex for anything besides anal
    tumblr_m9wxacuhmz1rzw5ydo1_500.png

    If you don’t want to have a child then you better limit your excuses. As vulgar as it may sound, sometimes there are only a few options in life, so you must avoid all potential margins of error. The road to success is not paved with having responsibilities of children and your future wife to be. This is a somewhat lonely journey that you must take by yourself and those you love will be able to celebrate with you after.

  • 2. Dating unstable women with mommy and daddy issues
    tumblr_lzpw5md5mf1rphuqgo1_500.png

    We need to control the invincibility we all feel when it comes to women. Whether she’s a stripper or a sorority girl, we feel the need to be the knight in shining armor for our women. As chivalrous as this may seem, we hate to break it to you, but you will never be able to change anyone. By setting yourself up for a losing battle, you’ve only ensured your misery for the next few months. She’s clingy for a reason, don’t be her Dr. Phil.

  • 1. Forgetting that karma is a huge b*tch
    tumblr_m7fa5apcqk1r6y3u1o1_500.jpg

    Whether it’s burning bridges with people you loved, stealing your friend’s girlfriend, or plotting against an ex-partner, we must always remember that karma is the biggest b*tch we’ve ever met. There is nothing more true than the fact that whatever goes around comes around, and you are not immune to the cosmic forces that be. We’re not asking you to go on your Mother Teresa pilgrimage, but don’t be surprised when reality catches back up with you and brings you to your knees. Be a good person. You’ll get further in life.

most of them are pretty sociopathic anyway

lame antiquated ideals on being 'a man'

all about learning how to be a man and sh*t and then talking juvenile about relationships and sh*t under the guise of being 'real'

thank christ im capable of independent thought and dont follow this kind of trash, there's many out there for whom this will be gospel

The real.

especially the juvenile view on relationships.

i made the number 2 mistake big time.

 

i dont agree with the escort one, apart from the rare few who deal with rich men, they are certainly not entrepeneurs themselves, they are destroyed women with emotional issues or are selling their fanny to send bread back to their family.

It's pretty common sense that with advice such as this, it's blown out of proportion but there's bit you can usually take on board/connect with..

 

Take that bit and keep it moving, no need to throw up your free thinking freedom flag and assume everyone is treating this as the 10 commandments.

 

Doesn't really matter that it's common sense or not, there is something in there that anyone can relate too.

Truss what ever happened to thinking for yourself?

Got this anonymous author ranting on about what they think is right based on their life experience like its gonna be the same for everyone smh

It's like some drunk co workers got his arm round u at the end of your first day slurring about "don't make the mistakes I made son..."

Most of it sounds like some burnt talk and the rest is just common sense

No suprise a simp like chaps wet his knickers over it tho.
