9 Things Millennials Need to Have On Their Bucket List

Every person dreams of doing some must-have things during their lifetime. Some of these ideas might be crazy while others are just difficult to accomplish, but there is something that unites all these things – we postpone doing them.

Having the bucket list is great, but more often than not, we procrastinate accomplishing our dreams. Although we are too young to think about passing away, it’s not the reason to stop moving to reaching your goals.

Here are 9 things to make sure you include on your bucket list:

1. Find a job you love

Even successful people had no idea where to set foot while they were young. Every person has a big variety of opportunities, and the main idea is not to let them go. If you want to live your life and enjoy every single moment of it, you need to work where you want to. Thus, it’s important to find a job you love. Don’t listen to people and don’t try to live up to their expectations. Learn how to quit a job you don’t like, and never stop searching for a place that makes you happy first.

2. Spend a day without gadgets

Being a millennial, you spend all your day using different gadgets: smartphones, laptops, iPods. It seems that your whole life is on the web. However, it’s important to take a pause and enjoy the life beyond social media and virtual reality. Just try it!

3. Hang out with friends all night long

Working all day long, you might be too tired to hang out all night. However, you need to enjoy your life. If you’re at the right place with the right people, don’t be in a hurry to go home. It might be your unique opportunity to spend a wonderful night with people who have the same views as you do.

4. Visit 10 Countries

Traveling broadens the mind. You can learn a lot about other people, their cultures, and yourself while traveling the world. Moreover, you can spend a considerable amount of time away from your country while being young. The older you are, the more responsibilities you have. So, don’t miss a chance to discover the world – earn experiences.

“We travel, some of us forever, to seek other places, other lives, other souls.” – Anais Nin

5. Do an extreme sport  

No matter what you want to try, whether it’s catching a wave or jumping with a parachute, just chase all fear. Being young is the best period to make risky decisions, and it’s highly important to try as many things as you can. The secret is simple, find a person who shares your views and do an extreme sport together in order to share emotions.

6. Make a declaration of love

What is the sense of life if you keep your thoughts and emotions deep in the heart? Although nobody wants to be rejected, you need to show your feelings without any fear. Making a declaration of love is one of the most romantic things, and the younger you are, the purer your intentions are. So, don’t be afraid to tell someone how much you value this person.

7. Take care of someone who needs it

Most millennials put their career first, so they refuse to get married. At the same time, millennials value family, so creating a family of your own is just a question of time. To get ready for it, you’d better learn how to take care of other people. For example, you can give a shelter to a stray cat or dog. Taking care of someone who needs it is important as it changes your attitude toward different things in your life.

8. Overcome your fear

All people have fears and phobias, and they affect our emotional well-being a lot. Although it’s hard to identify the root of your fear, there are some ways to overcome it. Once you have dealt with your fear, you start living a better life. Moreover, the earlier you start fighting against your fears, the better it is. Thus, try to overcome at least one fear while being young. It’s your life, so don’t let obstacles affect it negatively.

“In skating over thin ice our safety is in our speed.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

9. Waste everything on your dream

Most people think that they will start doing what they want when something extraordinary  happens. But time goes by so quickly, and we give up on accomplishing our dream due to different circumstances.  If you have a dream, don’t be afraid of going after it even if it requires spending all your money. Be risky while you’re young.

Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to be a writer. But my quintessential Indian father thought that was a terrible idea, and well, so did everybody else I knew. Eventually, thanks to nasty teachers and being in the wrong stream (IT engineering), I resigned myself to having a purposeless existence. But after graduation, I could not bring myself to conform any longer. So I dove into the world of writing. (more…)

Given the stress and challenges of this past year, your inner critic may be at a dull roar by now. This harsh internal voice can contribute to “imposter syndrome” or a feeling that you’re not worthy of success. This roommate you would never choose might sound something like this: “I’m not doing anything well,” “I’m not as smart as my colleagues and not equipped for this job,” “I should be further along in my career; I’m stagnating,” “That person is so together,” “I am overwhelmed!” And as you listen to this inner voice, you may be thinking you are the only one in the world wired this way. The truth is, you are not alone. (more…)
