4 Life Lessons Every Millennial Should Know

Millennials or those who have been referred as Generation Y are the individuals who grew up in an electronics-filled and increasingly online and socially-networked world. 

If you are born between 1982 and 2002, then continue reading this post and learn more about these life lessons that you should know. 

1. Be The Best At What You Do. 

Millennials are said to define themselves more by their interest and passion rather than careers. According to Mr. Renee Barian Romero, an avid online gamer who loves to join international competitions and now a successful business consultant and CEO, millennials should strive to be the best at what they do whether it's about arts, writing, dancing or even online gaming.

When you play games, you take adversaries as a challenge to become the best. Quitting is never an option. Focus on learning and improvement.

2. Be a Game Changer.

Millennials are known to be passionate about things that impact others: the planet, the environment, social justice, poverty. With proper guidance, these passions can make themselves as ‘changemakers’. What other generations might consider an ‘interest’, Millennials see it as central to who they are. They define success in terms of their ability to turn these interests into accomplishments or even a career. 

3. Be a Responsible Social Media User

Growing up in a digital environment, one can tap increasing potential with all the resources available. However, if not utilized properly, these resources may also become distractions that may hinder one’s personal or career growth. Ms. Maria Sigrid Lo, award-winning blogger / social media influencer reminds millennials to be responsible social media users. One should try to post something positive and helpful.

As millennials, let us be more than a selfie-crazy generation. Make sure to practice social media etiquette. 

4. You are Responsible for Your Dreams

Sha Nacino, a prolific speaker, and author of Mission Happiness and Money and Me shared that in order to make our dreams come true, you have to be clear on what you want. Be specific. Visualize and find out what you really want in your life. 


Sha Nacino shares tips on HOW WE CAN MAKE OUR DREAMS COME TRUE.
Once you know what your goals are, write your dreams. Create a dream board that will serve as a reminder.

Lastly, act on it. Dreams don't happen overnight. Take small steps but make sure you do it consistently. You personally have the control on making your dreams come true. Believe in yourself and not on other people's perception about you.
