10 Things I Wish I Knew As A Kid

10 Things I Wish I Knew As A Kid

I sat down the other day and consciously asked myself what would be the ten things I wish I could go back in time and tell my younger self.

Without much thought, these bullet points spilled onto the page and I think they apply to really any facet of life, so I hope they strike a chord with you as well.

After capturing this list, I quickly took note of the fact that even as an adult in a fast-moving world of noise and constant distractions, I need to continue reminding myself of these important lessons...

    1. Tenacity beats talent every time

    2. Everyone is great at at least one thing

    3. You don’t have to be good at everything

    4. Nobody will ever be a better version of you than you

    5. Nothing incredible that happens to you will be solely of your own doing.

    6. However, you will be responsible for the fruition of nearly every incredible thing that happens to you

    7. Failure is like a skeleton key to success: fail more, succeed more

    8. You don’t know what’s going to land or miss- so plant a lot of seeds

    9. If you can, check to see if the ground is fertile before planting the seeds

    10. Fear doesn’t have to be your enemy- make friends with it and it’ll help you, slam the door on it and it’ll always haunt you

Stay well,
