The top 10 biggest mistakes people make in their 30s

As someone in their 40s, I’ve had a lot of time to reflect on the mistakes I made earlier in life.
The truth is, your 30s are a pivotal time; you’re discovering who you are, focusing on your career, and laying down stones for the future.
And while this is all good, there are still areas during which 30-year-olds neglect themselves or those around them!
They later go on to regret these decisions, which is why I want to highlight them to you in this article (mainly so you don’t make the same mistakes I did!).
Here are the top 10 biggest mistakes people make in their 30s:
1. They prioritize security over ambition
As someone very ambitious, I can relate to this point…
You see, when you hit your 30s, you finally start earning some real money. You’ve likely worked your way up the ranks by this point and may even have money left over at the end of the month to splurge.
But there’s a hidden trap here…
The monthly paycheck can be so alluring that it makes 30 year old’s forget their youthful aspirations and dreams!
Unfortunately, many people stay in jobs they aren’t happy with, just because it funds their lifestyle and pays the bills.
But let me tell you, when you reach 40 and realize that the money wasn’t worth your mental health, you’ll likely regret this decision!
So, get into the mindset that your happiness matters more than a job. Then, once you’ve figured out what makes you happy, look for a job in that field!
