When you look around you, everyone seems to be doing something for themselves, people seem to be living a life you only dream of.

You have applied for jobs and the results have been more disappointing than Besigye’s shot at Presidency.

— Phi φ (@MthoBiyela) January 24, 2016

Sadly this is the age when most guys lose it, the age when if not careful, one is consumed by alcohol or drugs…

— Phi φ (@MthoBiyela) January 24, 2016

Worse is when a few people you studied with have been lucky enough to land jobs, soon your circle of friends grows thinner.

I mean what you will do when you are in a WhatsApp group of friends discussing last week’s trip to Zanzibar…

But it isn’t always bad…

This is the age when you learn a lot about life, if you can hack through this stage, your only hardship would losing your parents.

This stage teaches you a lot about perseverance, about appreciating the small wins you have each day.

— Phi φ (@MthoBiyela) January 24, 2016

It teaches you something about friendship, love, career growth and personal responsibility.

— Phi φ (@MthoBiyela) January 24, 2016

This is always your rise or fall moment depending on the choices you make.

— Phi φ (@MthoBiyela) January 24, 2016

How you live your life in the 30’s is determined by how you would have handled your life in this phase.

— Phi φ (@MthoBiyela) January 24, 2016

I haven’t been long in my 20’s but I won’t wait until this phase reaches me before I start doing something about it.

— Phi φ (@MthoBiyela) January 24, 2016

He ended the thread with this important question.

That’s why I always ask, “Are you working on your dreams today?”

— Phi φ (@MthoBiyela) January 24, 2016

In summary, the key to success is working on your dreams NOW and not anytime later. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
