Every single day of our lives, each of us learn a little bit and grow. Every day we strive to become better versions of ourselves than before. Self-improvement and self-growth are an integral part of life and cannot be ignored. In our initial years, most of our learnings come from schools and other institutions. Slowly we realize that for the rest of our lives, we have our own experiences to learn from. Ranveer Allahbadia a.k.a BeerBiceps is a widely known and much-loved influencer who describes himself as a ‘Self-Improvement Content Creator’. As a fitness enthusiast, Ranveer believes that physical and mental health is of utmost importance and that one must never stop learning. Over the past few months, he has been kind enough to share lessons from his experiences through the years and all that he has learned from them.
Here are a few life lessons worth remembering by BeerBiceps
1. The truth about adult life
When it comes to “adulting”, Ranveer has some extremely relevant tips to keep in mind. He emphasizes that these things are not necessarily taught at school, and you have to take it upon yourself to uphold certain things in your life. Education is not always a means to a career, rather it teaches you how to learn. He talks about how failures are just a means to grow further. Being ethical and honest is more important than anything else and knowing where you stand financially, whilst being financially independent is a must. Money is important to sustain a comfortable life but making it the priority of your life can be very dangerous. Always remember to prioritize your mind and body over the material things.
2. The reality of love and sex
When it comes to the subject of love and sex, pressures from peers and society can lead you to do things you may not necessarily be 100% sure about. Starting from the teenage years, especially through what we see in movies and read in books, expectations begin to rise. It is easy to get bogged down by all of this and it takes immense strength to do what is right for yourself. It is important to always take your time with whatever you do and put yourself first. Understanding that you cannot meet generalized expectations is important because everyone is simply unique. You have to first know who you are and love yourself for it before you decide to share your life and space with someone else. At a young age, it is significant to learn to listen to your gut about what feels right and what doesn’t and to remember that nothing is the end of the world. There is always something else out there for you.
3. Money management
While money cannot be your biggest priority to lead a happy life, the importance of it is undeniable. Money is not just about learning, but about spending too. Keeping your spending habits in check, saving, investing, and simply being responsible with your hard-earned money is a no-brainer. Ranveer has given some amazing tips on how to make your money grow, the right assets to invest in, and a basic understanding of how to manage your money.
4. Ways to exercise your brain
It is often said that our mind is our greatest asset. There is a lot of truth to this. In this particular post, Ranveer focuses on Twitter, as a platform for people to voice real opinions. He says, “Your Twitter is a reflection of your own internal thoughts, beliefs, and goals”. He deems it to be the ideal social media platform with the most substance. Ranveer highlights the importance of dividing your work and not getting overwhelmed by its volume, and of remembering to reflect on yourself and your work. This is the only way to learn and grow. Consciously learning a new skill every now and then, knowing that you will always have something to learn from everyone around you is critical. He adds, that podcasts are a great way of learning from other people’s experiences. Do check out his podcast, ‘The Ranveer Show‘, on YouTube.
