Common mistakes to avoid as a youth in Nigeria

Sharing is caring!


The time has come; what time is it? Of course, the time for me to hit a knock on your head. For all the times you have spent waywardly living your youthful age. Only if you can deeply bury your head on this article before you, and as expected; you must avoid these mistakes as a youth.

Many youths have this unquenchable hunger for success, in turn; they keep getting the wrong dice after throwing, and yes, they keep shooting their ball offside.

Who must I be referring to? I mean you.

What would you have done if you have no feet to walk, hands to work, eyes to see or ears to hear? Would you be living the life you are living now?

Listen, the most important stage of life is your youthful age.

A time is coming when you will find yourself in this stage of life.

A time when you will sit, imagine and regret most of the things and mistakes you made in your youthful age.

A time is coming when you will sit and wish you had done something you never did.

“While you are in your youthful age, remember you are in the most pertinent stage of your life, whatever habit you form becomes permanent.”

Most times, I sit and watch the way most people live their lives, the 21st-century pattern of life where young people think every minute of life is meant to be enjoyed.

That mindset of ” Come on, let me just have fun life is short” it has actually cut many lives short.

Today, I am going to show you some mistakes to avoid in your youthful age.

1. Comparing yourself:

This is the most common mistake you make alot of time in your life.

The feeling that someone is better or superior to you.

That feeling that someone is more pretty or handsome than you’re.

when you are feeling that you are too poor compared to others.

That is where you nailed yourself.

It only fools that compare themselves because we all have different background and different destination.

See this: Best handworks youths can learn and be successful in Nigeria.

Can I tell you what you don’t understand about life?

“Listen, you cannot compare your chapter 1 to someone’s chapter 50.”

Comparing what lies in front of you or what lies behind you has nothing to do with what lies inside of you.

There is something inside of you no one has in the world. Of course, you will never know what lies inside of you because all you do is wish you were like someone else.

You are you, and you are in the real you, you are the most unique creature ever.

When you compare yourself, you insult yourself.

When you compare yourself, you limit your glory.

When you compare yourself, you waste your time because the real you which you are can never go away no matter how you try to change them.

Key take home.

From today, start living your own different life, never use anyone’s life to measure your success.

All that matters is for you to be happy.

When you stop comparing, you will find out that people will start falling in love with your original you.

2. Prioritizing the wrong things.

Dear Friend, not everything is important in this life.

A lot of you make the mistakes of putting so much value on the wrong things.

There are things you cannot have and if you struggle to get them you will keep hurting yourself and then you waste your life because you prioritize the wrong things.

As you know, there are many things in life, but there is just one which i am about to show you and that is you should spend your time building the most.

Let me take this time to share a beautiful life alphabetical and mathematical concept with you.



is equal to:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26

Do you agree that we have 26 alphabets in English, as given below?

A = 1 ; B = 2 ; C = 3 ; D = 4 ;
E = 5 ; F = 6 ; G = 7 ; H = 8 ;
I = 9 ; J = 10 ; K = 11 ; L = 12 ;
M = 13 ; N = 14 ; O = 15 ; P = 16 ;
Q = 17 ; R = 18 ; S = 19 ; T = 20 ;
U = 21 ; V = 22 ; W = 23 ; X =24 ;
Y = 25 ; Z = 26.




= 98%



Enrol jupeb

= 96%


= 12+15+22+5

= 54%

L+U+C+K ;


= 47%

None of them makes 100%. Then what makes 100%?

Is it Money?



= 13+15+14+5+25
= 72%




= 97%

But there is something very special in life that makes 100%…..


A+T+T+I+T+U+D+E ;

= 100%

Therefore, YOUR ATTITUDE in life is what makes you 100% Successful and that is what you should prioritize the most

Key take home

If you have a good attitude you can attract anything to yourself including success.

On the other hand, you need to remember that nothing lasts long in this life so don’t put so much value on the material world.

You + your attitude and the people around you are the most important things.

3. Thinking Time is leaving you.

Everyone keeps saying time is going, time is leaving, the time has gone.

Gone to where?

Can I amaze you?

“Time is not going anywhere, you are the one that is leaving time”

I repeat you are the one that is leaving the time, time is just a concept, you as a being is the one that is actually leaving the time.

One day, your life would be all gone to the dust, so that is why you have to start focusing on your life, and stop saying time is leaving, start saying my life is leaving.

Never forget that until you avoid this life mistakes while you are still a youth, you cannot go anywhere in life.

Every day when you wake up, you are heading close to the day your existence would never be felt.

Key take home

Do yourself the favor to start living your life rightly with more value.


Stop worrying about mistakes you have made because your life is leaving you and worrying will add no benefit.

4. Thinking you are too young to start making money.

Whether you are 19 years old or you are in your 20’s. You are never too young to become rich.

Mistakes made by youths

Success starts by taking a step and if you wait till you fully become a man or woman before you start working towards making money in life, you are making a big mistake.

You are never young to be rich.

As a matter of fact, it depends on your definition of becoming rich and being young.

The harsh truth is young people have Glories, young people have the most strength, young people are well respected. The problem is you let weakness or laziness rule over your strong side.

Key Take Home.

From today, start building your goals to make money the right way no matter how young you think you are.

However, don’t let the making money of a thing get into your head and then you start chasing it the wrong way.

Get it the right way, even if it delays a bit.

Even while life is leaving you, remember everyone has a perfect time.

5. Believing everything you see on social media.

Social media have contributed to the downfall of many youths, and one of the mistakes’ youth make is setting a pace for your life base on the trend or what you see on social media.

Social media mistakes

We get to learn about the lives most people live on social media both from far and near.

Guess what the definition of stupidity is!

It is believing what you see on social media and trying to follow that pattern of life.

Youths errors in life

Social media is a fake and dangerous world because you only get to see the good part because they will always hide the bad part.

Social media have deceived a lot of young folks and lead their lives in a different direction.

Remember, it is a rule of life that you must never copy someone else’s life.

Key Take Home.

Mistakes to avoid in life

Whatever you see on social media, take it as entertainment. Never make the mistake of setting your life according to the pattern of people you see on social media who appear to be successful.

Your greatest role model must not be someone you met on social media, but yourself and your God.

6. Thinking Education is a waste of time due to unemployment.

Unemployment! Unemployment! Unemployment!

This word has discouraged a lot of youths from furthering their education into the tertiary education level.

There is this belief that there is no job in the country, and many graduates are underemployed.

Yes, that may be true.

But can I tell you this?

Those graduates who are unemployed are in that phase because they choose to.

Wait, I am not saying it was their own cause of not being employed, what I mean is this.

Going, to school and graduating successfully in the University. does not just end up alone by searching for a job from one company to another.

Your main essence is to gain knowledge and with that, you can become your own boss by starting up your own business.

Someday you may get a bigger opportunity.

Key take home

Start working out your admission into the University.

Don’t let anything stop you from that.

You need to be very smart, you need to prioritize education because it is really important and don’t let the thought of underemployment weigh you down.

7. Telling everyone your story.

Another mistake youth make in their life is sharing how they have suffered, this or that to people they come across.

I wish I had enough words to emphasize on this, the truth you need to know is nobody actually cares about your story, all they care about is your Glory.

Stop sharing your story, start sharing your glory.

Key take home

Keep your story to yourself because telling others your story won’t make things different.

Matured minds only share Glories.

If there is someone who actually cares about your story, it is yourself and your family.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope to see you around again on our blog where we share wonderful life tips, enjoy your youthful age and don’t waste it things not important.
