20 Things I Wish I Knew When I Was 20

2. Travel. Go to different countries and meet different cultures. Your heart and your perspective will expand.

3. Failure is an option and perhaps a better option. Don’t be afraid of it.

4. Never pay off only the minimum on Credit cards.

5. Hedonism does not equate to happiness. Go wild for a couple of years but don’t make it a permanent lifestyle choice.

6. Monetary wealth does not equate happiness. Find your passion and apply yourself.

7. Women; don’t sleep with someone because you want to keep hold of them, it is not a long term solution.
