29 Things I Wish I Knew at 29

Updated: May 10


#1

God

It's easier to believe than doubt

I know there's a lot of dusty, crusty, un-fun people representing, but that's not God. God is the divine creator of all great things ever created and the love and power to create within ourselves. This can be believed or doubted and it's up to us. The more believe in God, the more belief we have in ourselves.

God Dreams Creation

Honor and live by the Golden Rule, The 10 Commandments, and The Beatitudes.


#2

Obey the Law of Chastity

As prudish as this sounds, it's true. You don't want to have sex with just anyone. Especially, douchebag MFers. Sexuality is a life force and no one wants a douchebag baby. Sex is serious, and it’s best to stay away and obey the Law of Chastity. This provides incredible will power and all power.


#3

Spiritual Wealth ∞ Financial Wealth

When I was an Atheist, I was broke and had $2 in the bank. After I got baptized, I made more conscious choices that increased my sense of self worth and financial opportunities.


#3

Keep an Open Mind

Out of 8 billion people in the world, we all have a different perspective, and to us, that perspective is valid. Keep an open mind and walk a mile in another man's shoes. Your point of view is just as valid to you and one is to another.


#4

Family is everything.

Even though they're a-holes (sometimes) Your family is your introduction to relationships in the world. No matter what riff or discord has occurred, all is forgivable. t's in everybody's best interest to love and forgive. Make amends. Go places and experience life together. Cherish every moment you can with your family.


#5

Eat Right & Exercise

Your body is the vessel that carries you through life. Take good care.

Consume fresh fruits and vegetables. Oatmeal is always a good options. Legumes have protein and eat as many greens as you can! Have you ever had a shot of wheatgrass or beet juice? It gets ya high!


Dance

#9

Engage in Politics

It's not what you think! It's fun!

Make your voice heard in the conversation.

"Studying government allows us to participate in an informed way. Doing so intelligently requires effort, and that’s why we need to learn about how our government works. Otherwise, we end up being led rather than being leaders. Knowledge is our best defense against unscrupulous people who will use our ignorance to get us to do the things they want rather than what we think should be done." -PBS


#10

Be a Leader

Lead yourself and lead the people around you by being a good example. If this feels like too much pressure, look to God for guidance and Jesus Christ, Buddha, Tao Te for examples. You don't have to be a hero. Just lead yourself. Stand for truth. Treat others the way you want to be treated. Make choices that edify honor


#11

Time is Most Precious

Align your goals with your actions and time. Make time every day to pray, stretch, breathe deep, and do what you love. Work: You better be doing what you love because 8 hours is a lot. 24 hours. 8 hours sleep. 8 hours work. What are you doing with that last ?


#12

Every Choice is Important.

"The choice you make, makes you."

Every day we're faced with choices. Every choice takes us down a different path. "The choice is yours and mine. Will we choose to do whatever it takes to fulfill the wonderful missions for which we were sent to earth?" - Wendy Nelson

is the best come back.

It's all you have to say in any unpleasant circumstance. If wicked behavior arises within you or any one you come into contact with, say: "Rebuke thee!"

In all things that you do, have a goal. Set deadlines. Persevere. Achieve it.


#15

Rejection Builds Strength

We all face rejection and it helps us grow.

We apply for jobs. We go on dates. We share our creativity and it's poorly received. Not everyone is going to love what we do. There's 8 billion people in the world. You can't please everyone. Rejection makes you humble and strong.

#17

Do One New Thing Every Day.

Try Tai Chi or new food! Watch a YouTube tutorial on Publishing a Book. Walk a new path, glance in a different direction. Be bold and step outside of your comfort zone. There's so much to see and do in the world! Do everything you possibly can!


#18

Change is Inevitable,

Change is Incredible!!!

Please don't be one of these old men with baby boomer pregnant bellies. That belly is years of stale energy resisting change. We're all changing every day! Every single day of our lives, every encounter. We're experiencing, learning, growing, aging, and changing.

School is Amazing

Utilize every opportunity to enhance your education.


#20

What do you want? Why are you talking? Be clear in your communication. In public speaking situations: Clear your throat, shake up the nerves, and directly express yourself.


#24

Embarrassment is Not Real

Whatever you did, it already happened. Why waste any ounce of energy regretting it? Nothing is embarrassing. No matter what. It's a matter of perception. We make mistakes to learn and grow. Rather than shaming and embarrassing, be encouraging. Forgiveness is important. Believe in God and follow Jesus Christ and you'll never find yourself in an embarrassing situation.
