Gen Z videographer asks seasoned citizens for their best advice

This is why it is so important for seasoned citizens to share their advice and life stories with members of the younger generations. They are seeking that information and, in some cases, starving for wisdom amidst a sea of knowledge.

TikTok creator Yair Brachiyahu walked the streets seeking much older people who were willing to share their advice and life experiences with him. He found plenty, according to an article appear on

We are all born with at least one natural talent. On our journey, we learn a variety of skills, and enjoy unique experiences which specifically equip us to serve others in some way. We may not work a 9-to-5 job any more, but our greatest asset as we get older is the wisdom we have accumulated.

A 95-year-old woman told Yair her secret for a long life was being upbeat whenever she could, and not trying to be negative or spending time worrying about tomorrow.

A 79-year-old woman, who admitted to having the spirit of a 26-year-old, explained she thought money was so important when she was younger. “Money matters, but it doesn’t guarantee happiness,” she explained. The woman also encouraged younger people to not be victims. “It’s not what happens to you, but how you handle what happens to you that matters,” she said.

A married couple said their biggest mistake was not following their dreams earlier, and they encouraged others to take more adventures. “Love every moment, live every day,” he said. They also cautioned against chasing after nicer houses, bigger cars and other material things, all of which they described as “meaningless.”

A 78-year-old man warned against even trying to compete in the artificial, empty world of accumulating possessions and encouraged people to look for relationships instead.

Yair has interviewed dozens of seasoned citizens on his TikTok channels, which can be found at
