30 PRECIOUS BITS OF LIFE ADVICE FROM 100-YEAR-OLDs.

Honestly speaking, I started paying attention to much more experienced people. I already wrote 80 years old man and 90 years old man advice in the earlier blogs. I would love to hear what they are saying about success and precisely, how to live a good life. so, this is something special and important to me.

I’m quite happy to read it and apply it.

On Career

  1. “You cannot go too far without passion. Find something you are passionate about and pursue it.”
  2. “You cannot achieve much when you are stuck. Unleash yourself. Learn a new skill. Unravel your environment and discover new terrains.”
  3. “Seek freedom and opportunity rather than a job and security.”
  4. “Invest or learn how to save. You never know what protection these things may provide to you.”
  5. “There should be no need to retire if you have pursued the right career. However, if it is necessary, do it after the age of 70.”

On Relationships

  1. “Fall in love as much as you can. It is difficult to simply give up on it. How many other things are as formidable as love, that you can hold onto?”
  2. “You should be proud of everything you fall in love with.”
  3. “Your relationships are vital to who you will become. Learn to develop the right relationships.”

  3. “Laugh. There is no point in taking life too seriously!”
  4. “Whatever life throws at you, respond to it, and never react to it.”
  5. “Forgive yourself and everyone around you.”

  7. “Don’t be cheap.”
  8. “Take it easy. Many of my friends are gone because they just wanted it all too early.”

  10. “Believe in yourself. Such a belief can propel you to unbelievable heights.”
  11. “You can never underestimate the power of luck.”
  12. “You can never believe how far you will go if you take steady and important steps.”
