10 things you should stop doing by the time you hit 25

Turning 25? Here are things you should quit doing.

You get to explore and discover who you are and get away with stuff (not all though) simply because you’re still in your 20s and most people will excuse you because of that.

There’s something about hitting 25 though that reality suddenly checks in and you realize that you have to get serious with your life because you’re now entering your late twenties.

Here are 10 things everyone should stop doing by the time they turn 25.


1.Stop waiting for approval

If you want to do it then go for it. Stop looking for someone to be okay with it for you to be okay with it. Sometimes it is necessary to trust your gut and take the leap.

2.Not doing what you say you’re going to do

If you speak it do it. Procrastination should be a thing of the past. If you know you’re not going to do it or are not ready to do so then keep it to yourself.

3.Not be independent


Take charge of your life and stop being dependent on your parents or family for everything.

4.Not prioritizing

Clubbing and having a good time shouldn’t come before paying bills or investing money. It is time to think about the future.

5.Stop settling for less

Be it in your career, in your relationships or life in general; do not settle for less. Always fight for what you know you are worth.


6.Accept change

Change is inevitable so learn to accept it and conform. If you’re not changing then you’re not growing.

7.Start being a leader and less of a follower

This goes in line with taking charge of your life. You are the pilot of it and decide which direction you want to go in. No one else. Learn to make the hard decisions in your life.

8.Telling yourself that you’re still young


Yes, you are still young but don’t let that cloud the fact that your time should be wasted. Maximize on the time you have now for a better future.

9.Not working for money and start working for your passion

Discover your passion early and work towards that instead of just working for a pay check. Life is too short to be unhappy.

10.Not choosing your friends wisely

Friends come and go and the sooner you filter out the ones that do not add value to your life, the better. They may hinder your growth in life.
