The socialite, who is in her 80s, shares five things that people should understand to live a more fulfilling life without regrets.
The right information at the right time can work wonders for people. Having the right guide to travel through the tumultuous path of life aids people in achieving their goals. Therefore, Nikki Haskell–who goes by @bignikbh on TikTok–shares the five "hard truths" she has learned over her 80 years of experience. Haskell along with age, carries a lot of personal and professional experience with her. She was the producer and host of "The Nikki Haskell Show," which earned her the moniker of "The Queen of New York Nightlife." Her tips aim to empower people to live their lives to the fullest with happiness and success.
The first lesson she gave was "don't waste time feeling sorry for yourself." Life is not a bed of roses. There will be problems and people will get hurt. In such situations, individuals mustn't waste time and pick themselves up to chase their pursuits. She added, "People move on and so should you." It is necessary to prioritize yourself and not allow others to take control. The second tip was, "You always have to welcome new challenges." People should not get set into a place they don't like just because it is stable. Individuals should live to their fullest potential and this means embracing new paths. She explained, "If you're not willing to take risks, then you'll never succeed."
Haskell follows up with the third poignant suggestion, "Stay happy." People must function with a positive mindset for a stable life. Even if life pulls people down, people must seek joy. Haskell's way of inviting happiness into people's lives is simple, "I'm happy now, even if it doesn't feel like it. Talk yourself into it. Just keep saying, I'm having a great time and I'm happy." The fourth one on the list was "always seek knowledge." The worst mistake a person can make is thinking that they know everything. People should always be open to opinions and information. Having more knowledge implies being more equipped for every situation. That is the most powerful "weapon" an individual can have.

The fifth and last point was "always invest in yourself." To go through life, people must have a belief in themselves and their dreams. Many will try to discard and reject it, but self-confidence is the key to getting through those doubts. She concluded by saying, "Always invest in your dreams and your projects and things that are important to you." Ultimately, people have only one life and it is their responsibility to make it as fulfilling as possible.
The comments section loved all the tips. @tamee_bee wrote how these tips have impacted her, "Wow!! I needed this right now!! I can't even believe how much I needed to hear all of this. I'm 50 and thinking about making a big change. I want to, so I will!!" @stephencamilleri8 backed up the suggestions and commented, "Totally agree with you. I'm 62 years young in 11 days and feeling so good by doing exactly what you said."
