Top 10 things I’d tell my 20 year old self

It’s my birthday today!!!! So I thought I’d do quick post and share a couple of things I’ve learnt over the past five years which have had the most impact in my life:

  1. Have a man who speaks over your life. One who guides you and challenges the decisions you make.
  2. Don’t compare yourself to other people. Your time will come. You’re on completely different paths.
  3. Change is the only constant thing in life.
  4. Make yourself available to the people close to you. You never know what they may be going through.
  5. Women are more than good looks and good shoes. Find a woman who will submit to you. Love her, and make her grow in every aspect of her life.
  6. You aren’t entitled to anything. No one owes you jack. You want something, work for it day and night.
  7. Invest in meaningful relationships.
  8. Don’t loan out money to your friends and family. You’ll just brew bad blood. Help out wherever you can and don’t expect anything in return.
  9. Stop worrying too much about what people think about you. It’s a narcissistic trait and they probably don’t even notice you.
  10. Pray without ceasing.

    Happy birthday belated Muriuki! I’m a fashion student writing a report on Kenyan fashion and I’m so happy I discovered your blog, it’s amazing! Please could you help me out by sharing a survey I’m doing to learn more about Kenyan consumers? I’ve also tweeted to you 🙂 I would be so grateful!

    2 is gold. Especially as a young guy it’s so easy to compare yourself to others when they are completely different paths or so far ahead that the comparison is only ever going to be negative. Don’t feel bad if anyone is ahead of you. Learn from others and keep moving forward.

    10. Pray without ceasing. My favorite. As we get older we realize the weight of praying and how important it is. Love the post.
