If I ask you what could you change if you go back in time, you will spend 10 minutes wondering how many past decisions you could change. I used the word ‘decisions’ because who you are today is the result of your decisions.
When I was 20, I remember how I used to waste time. It was not deliberate action, I was naive. I used to watch pirated movies on laptop. Movies like Pursuit of Happiness and Shawshank Redemption taught me invaluable lesson to chase your dream but rest of the movies were only entertaining. Today, I’m hungry to learning new skills. I am learning German on Duolingo app, I’m blogging, I read book on copywriting, and few minutes back I subscribed to Skill Share.
2. Physical intimacy
That’s crazy. I was too considerate towards women. I thought touching a woman is sexual harassment. Without her consent, it is. But there was an instance where I couldn’t get the signal and I missed the most essential and satisfying part of teenage.
I used to go for swimming and walk a lot. But I didn’t join a gym full-time because that was costly. I want to have a lean body like Akshay Kumar. Once I start making fair amount of money, I will join gym. Till then walking a lot is love.
I am an introvert. I find it difficult to show my feelings to others. I’m misunderstood as indifferent person. So I always had just 1 friend with whom i’m in touch with. I always blamed myself for being introvert. Sometimes I faked my behaviour to make friends, but I couldn’t keep my fake behaviour for long and returned to normal stage. Now I realise, being an introvert is a blessing. I have intuitive mind.
5. Reading books
First book I read when I was 20 was The Alchemist by Paolo Coelho. Then at 22 I read The Godfather. Between 22 to 26 I read less than 11 books. Today at 28 I have self-realised their importance. I’m spending money on ebooks to improve my financial knowledge. If you read 1000 books, then you have lived 1000 lives.
