Toady’s Monday Motivation is taken from Paul Angone’s 101 Secrets For Your Twenties. Secret #25 is one of my favorites. It reminds twentysomethings that “failing”, or not completing something correctly, is not a reflection on who we are as a person. Our failures do not define us, they refine us. They refine our skills by correcting mistakes and challenge our perspective. Are you going to look at a failure negatively, calling yourself a failure? Or are you going to change your perspective to a positive one so you can look at each “failure” as an opportunity to improve?
Have you heard? The secret is out! Or in this case the secrets… Paul Angone’s 101 Secrets For Your Twenties is out! If you haven’t read the viral 21 Secrets For Your 20s check it out for just a tiny glimpse through the key whole to what’s behind the door for 101 Secrets For Your Twenties.
The best thing about these secrets is that they aren’t really secrets, they’re facts. Every single one of these “secrets” are so incredibly true! You just can’t realize it or figure it out yourself because you’re stuck in the middle of it. Paul Angone is the voice of reason who can give you that bird’s eye view into your life. He can be that voice of reason giving you the outsider’s view on the life of a twentysomething. After going through it himself why wouldn’t he be a twentysomething guru?
Each secret is told in a witty and honest way that you could finish the book in one sitting. Or don’t, instead read one inspirational secret a day for motivation. Do whatever fits your lifestyle. You can’t go wrong with these 101 secrets. Here are some of my favorite secrets:
#1 Sometimes surviving your 20s is nothing more glamorous than just holding on for dear life on the back of an inner tube like a kid being whipped around by a speedboat.
#6 Life will never feel like its’s suppose to.
#22 The grass is always greener on the other side, until you get there and realize its because of all the manure.
#52 Your ability to learn Wine 101 might be the difference between eating at the Adults’ Table or stuck in a folding chair with the kids.
#60 Our 20s are not about finding our home; our 20s are about finding the right place to build it.
#79 Knowing your Karaoke-Compatibility should be a required premarital exercise.
