10 Amazing Life Lessons
Every stage in life gives you hurdles. Some are easy to cross, some are extremely difficult and some are worth crossing because you know that there is a reward at the end of it. It is essential for each one of us to learn from every step we take in life; every word we speak about ourselves or others and from what we can or could do for others in life. Here’s a little sneak peak about the 10 amazing life lessons that you can learn from and be committed to throughout your life
Follow Your Curiosity
“Creatures whose mainspring is curiosity enjoy the accumulating of facts far more than the pausing at times to reflect on those facts.”
Try to find out what you are curious about. The pursuit of your curiosity is the secret to your success.
Perseverance Is Priceless
“When the world says ‘Give Up’, Hope whispers ‘Try it one more time’.”
Are you really determined to get what you want and reach the final destination no matter how hard the struggles are? They say the entire value of the postage stamp consists in its ability to stick to something until it gets there. Be like the postage stamp- finish the race that you have started!
Focus On The Present
“Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.”
You cannot ride two horses at the same time. You can do anything, but not everything. So learn to be present where you are, and give all to whatever you are currently doing. Focused energy is power, and it’s the difference between success and failure.
The Imagination Is Powerful
“The world of reality has its limits, but the world of imagination is boundless.”
Are you really using your imagination daily? Thus, imagination is more important than knowledge because your imagination pre-plays the future. Are you really working your imagination muscles daily? If not, then it’s high time you should! Do not let something as powerful as your imagination lie resting and dormant.
“Making mistakes does not mean you are a failure. It just means you are trying and learning in life.”
Never be afraid of making a mistake. It is not a failure, but something that can make you better, smarter and faster as an individual if you use it properly. Discover the power of making mistakes. If you really want to succeed, then triple the amount of mistakes you make. The more of them, the better you will see the perspective towards life.
Live In The Moment
“Life is not a matter of milestones, but of moments.”
The only way to properly address your future is to be as present as possible “in the present.” You cannot presently change yesterday or tomorrow, so it is important that you dedicate all of your efforts to “right now.” It is the only time that matters, and it is the only time there is.
“When you begin to value yourself, others will also. How to treat yourself teaches others how to treat you.”
Do not waste your time trying to be successful and spend your time creating value. If you are valuable, then you will attract success. Discover the talents and gifts that you possess, learn how to offer those talents and gifts in a way that others benefit the most out of it. Labor to be valuable and success will chase you down.
Do Not Expect Different Results
“If you cannot explain it simply, you do not understand it well enough.”
You cannot keep doing the same thing every day and expect different results. For instance, you cannot keep doing the same work routine and expect to look differently. In order for your life to change, you must change, to the degree that you change your actions and your thinking to a degree that your life will change.
Knowledge Comes From Experience
“You need to wakeup if you want to dream.”
Knowledge comes from experience. You can discuss a task, but discussion will give you a philosophical understanding of it. You must experience the task first hand to “know it.” What’s the lesson? What am I going to get out of it? Out of knowing it? Get the experience! Do not spend your time hiding behind rough information. Go out there and do it, and you will have gained priceless knowledge.
Learn The Rules And Then Play Better
“The task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen, but to think what nobody has yet thought about which everyone sees.”
To put it all in simple words, there are two things that you must do. The first thing you must do is to learn the rules of the game you are playing. It does not sound exciting, but it is vital. Secondly, you must commit to play the game better than anyone else. If you can do these two things, success will be yours!
