The age of 30 always marks a huge turning point in the life of everyone. It means that you have completely left the stage of exuberance, and needs to attend to higher responsibilities in life. It is an age that everyone looks up to with both expectations and trepidation.
For those who are yet to clock 30, their dream is to achieve plenty before then - graduate from school, get a good job, have a good investment, get married and have a family. But what happens when you have gotten up to 30 and you are yet to achieve all or any of those things? That is what this article seeks to talk about.
Again, you must understand that the age of 30 is like the bridge that separates young adulthood from old age. It is the period in life when we completely step out of adolescence and start preparing seriously for old age. And what we do with ourselves at that stage greatly determines how our old age will look like.
So if you are up to the age of 30, but still continues to see yourself as a kid, then it's time to do away with such mindset and start making serious plans for your future, because time waits for no one.
To avoid spending your later years in regret, there are certain things you need to do when you are up to the age of 30, and that is what we will set out to discuss in this article. So let's look at 5 of those things.
1. GET YOURSELF A JOB.
It's sad to see some people remain jobless even at the age of 30. A lot of people at 30 are still wasting their lives on frivolous things, thinking that they are still young. Many are waiting for the golden job, and wouldn't want to start small. That's really bad.
If you remain jobless at the age of 30, then know that you are jeopardizing your future, and you will have yourself to blame for it.
Don't waste any more of your time. Pick up any job, no matter how small. It is better to start small than not starting at all. Don't be selective about jobs, because there is dignity in labor. And even if you can't find a job you can start a business for yourself, no matter how small. You will be surprised to see how rapidly the business will grow if you manage it well.
2. START INVESTING
Nothing prepares someone for the future than investment. At the age of 30 you should start thinking of how you want your later years to look like. And if you have a beautiful picture in your mind for your later years, then start investing.
Oftentimes you see some elderly people who live in total privation and penury, that is not because they didn't see money when they were young. Most of them were actually well-to-do at young age, but were carried away with the vanities of life, and they failed to invest for the future.
There are several ways you can invest your money - stocks, properties, shares, etc.
In the case of stocks and shares, look for a good broker that can guide you, and you will be surprised to see what the little amount you invest today will yield for you in the next two or three decades. And you won't have to suffer in your old age.
3. START A SERIOUS RELATIONSHIP
Another important thing you need to do if you are up to the age of 30 is to start a serious relationship.
It's a pity to sometimes see 30-year-olds still stuck in debauchery. Many of them garnish it up with the belief that they are having fun because they are still young. My dear, there comes a time in one's life when you need to start attaching seriousness to certain areas of your life.
At the age of 30, you should already be sure of who you want to spend the rest of your life with, and start being serious with that person. Many people have ended up with the wrong partners in life because they failed to keep those people they let go in the past.
At the age of 30, you should already be having marriage in mind, and know who you want to spend the rest of your life with, and start being serious with that person.
4. BE MINDFUL OF THE KIND OF FRIENDS YOU KEEP.
Another thing you need to do if you are up to 30 years old is to start being mindful of the kind of friends you keep. You must know that not everyone will share your dreams and life-long goals with you. Not everyone is going in the same direction with you, so try to cut ties with those who are not going the same way with you, in order not to be misled.
I have seen a lot of young people who ended up badly because of the wrong company they kept, you shouldn't make that mistake too.
The age of 30 is a time for you to reevaluate your choice of friends, know which ones to keep and the ones to cut off from.
5. TAKE GOOD CARE OF YOURSELF.
This is particularly for those who are too busy that they hardly have time for themselves. At the age of 30 you need to start taking proper care for yourself.
Make sure your body has enough rest, and maintain proper diet. Also have a routine for exercise, and try to stay healthy. Know that whatever stress you subject your body to, it will still have its toll on you sooner or later.
Don't store up excess baggage in your system that will later come back to affect you later in life.
If you are up to the age of 30, I believe that if you do these things you will live a happy life in your old age.
