1,200 years before Descartes famously said, “I think, therefore I am.” St. Augustine said, “Fallor ergo sum” which means “I err, therefore I am.” Being wrong is a huge part of human nature. But humans don’t like being wrong. We have a strong desire to be right and we have a strong fear of being […]
I turned 24 years old a few days ago. I thought it’d be a good idea to share 24 lessons I’ve learned in the 24 years of my life which I realized I’ve never really done before. Normally, I look back on the things I’ve learned on a yearly basis or after the end of life stages such as graduating high school or college, but not looking back on my life as a whole on the things I’ve learned like this.
I came up with this list by looking through my success journal over the year in which I would write a quote of the day and things I learned that day. I also looked through my notes in which I write down my thoughts and any wisdom I come across, and things that I learn. I’ve also included principles that I’ve written about throughout my blog.
Many of these lessons I learned from my personal experiences, others’ experiences, quotes, articles, and books I’ve read, movies and videos I’ve watched, and things I’ve observed and noticed.
Here are 24 of the life lessons and nuggets of wisdom I’ve learned over the last 24 years of my life. Enjoy!
Personal growth, personal development or self-development is an essential part of a person’s success and happiness. Personal development is a very vast topic and subject area that consists of a multitude of subjects and topics. There’s a lot to it. Some of it can be conflicting too.

Personal development consists of techniques and ideas to improve your life as well as inspirational positivity and quotes.
This article is designed to give you an introduction to personal development. Personal growth and personal development will be used interchangeably.
Although most of don’t like receiving unsolicited advice, we will still often seek out advice. Especially if we’re struggling with overcoming an obstacle or reaching a goal. Whether it’s from friends, family members, therapists, psychics, life coaches, books, blogs, videos, or podcasts. This goes not only for advice but any knowledge, information, or data we can apply to our own lives. And this is a great thing.
But there’s so much out there though. A lot of it can be contradicting. And there’s a lot of junk too.
We obviously want to make the best decisions for our lives and well-being. Most of us don’t have a system for weeding through good and bad information. So, how can we seek advice and information effectively?
In this article we’re going to look at advice itself and the act of giving advice. This article will discuss why you shouldn’t give advice, what to do instead, and a surprising reason why you should give advice. We’ll also look at advice in the workplace (feedback) and how it can be given effectively.
In this article, I share commonly given advice that can actually be bad advice—many of which have been studied and allegedly proven to be so. I’ll also be sharing why the advice is bad as well as better advice instead. This article has little to do with the responses received. This type of advice is not specific nor given by any one particular person but is often a cliché, and anonymously quoted.
In this article, I share the advice given by over 400 people after I asked them to give their best advice. The advice received ranges from financial advice to relationship advice to general life advice.
