Since childhood, you all must have heard so much good advice for life, whether from parents, whether teachers or some great personalities. But as we grow old, we become part of the same ancient rat race and forget all this golden advice for life. Later, forgetting these become the cause of sorrow and despair in our life.
So come and let’s remember the same forgotten life lessons again.
1.Identify what you really want
We all live in the era of technology, where we are connected to everyone we know. We can see and talk to our relatives and close ones face-to-face, but what about us? have we ever tried to know ourselves? Tried to talk to ourselves? Maybe the answer is no, and all our problems start from here.
As we grow older, we become so ignorant of ourselves, so much so we start walking on the paths that either our parents have chosen for us. Or we have picked ourselves under the pressure of society.
We often get trapped in this cycle without being aware, which results in dissatisfaction and feeling of unfulfillme
Try to talk to yourself, know yourself, is that really what you want from your life? Can it satisfy you?
If not, change your direction. Focus on what you want from your life, what you want to do, and not what other people like you to do.
2.Push your self out of your comfort zone
All those who have succeeded in their lives started working out of their comfort zone. This is a simple fact because as long as you are relaxed, everything becomes saturated in your shell. Where there is saturation, there is no growth.
So start doing those things you find extremely hard to do, go out, and try for all those jobs, positions, or roles for which you dreamt. Even if you feel you lack the same skills, that is okay, not an issue.
When you try and fail, you realize where you are lacking, and hence there is a chance to improve. And in today’s time, every information every learning is just one click away.
Go out and learn all those skills which are acting as obstacles between you and your dreams. Work hard no matter how painful it might seem, how much effort it takes, get submerged into it, and finish it off.What once seemed impossible and unattainable will seem a bit easier, and one day you will see your dreams turning into reality.
3.Turn adversity into opportunity
Difficulties and adversities are bound to occur in every walks of life, especially when we step out to achieve something big. People are most likely to give up and quit when they fail, but some people dare to fall and stand up again. They learn from their mistakes and try to grow while going through pain and difficulties.
Always remember two things:
First, The things that can be changed, change it, but the things that cannot be changed, it is wise to accept them with an open heart and start working with a slightly new strategy.
Second, failure and hardships are the best teachers in this world.
4.Be a good Listener
There are very few good listeners out there because most people believe that they will appear knowledgeable and suitable if they talk much. But that is wrong. The reality is that it is the most annoying and irritating part, be it at a professional level or a personal level.
Also, when we speak all the time and do not listen, two things can happen.
We might miss out on listening to critical information while we are busy speaking orWe might end up looking like a fool, interrupting in between the conversation without any prior knowledge.And I don’t think anyone wants that.
Don’t act like a fool. Speaking all the time and not letting others talk is not going to take you anywhere. If you want to grow, want to learn something in life, start listening to what other people have to say with great interest and enthusiasm. You will definitely see a positive change.
5.Do not show off
There are two types of people:
The first type is People who don’t know anything but brag too much. Second, People who know too much so try to show off. But remember, both of them are equally wrong.
Let’s talk about the second type because they have the potential to reach the top. It is good if you are a knowledgeable person. But admit it, that you cannot possibly know everything.Every day you will come across something about which you are entirely unaware. The wise or intelligent people know this, and they never hesitate to accept it, and instead, they try their best to learn those things. It is wise to admit that there is no shame in accepting when you do not know about certain things. Instead, one looks dumb when he or she does not know about something still tries to beat around the bush to look smart.
So be wise, acquire knowledge but do not show off.
As I mentioned, it is always wise to admit when you don’t know about something. But everyone wants to be the expert or master in his or her field. Now the question arises on how to become an expert when you still unaware of a lot of things?
Well, the answer is quite simple, start learning. Set a goal of learning new things every day. Even if it feels like things are very small or time taking, but over time these small and time-taking things will accumulate to become big and you will become master of your expertise.
7.Patience and persistence
It is effortless to come up with an idea or to dream about something gratifying. But how many of us step out to turn this dream or wish into reality? Significantly less, because that is the challenging part, or even if few of us dare to start, we tend to give up too soon as when we begin, we are most likely to be failed. But if you seriously want something big from your life,
Accept that failure is an inevitable part of success, and there is no success without failure.
So Break your one big goal into small parts and start working on each element one by one with patience and persistence until you reach your destination.
8.You cannot make everyone happy
It is usual for every human being to crave appreciation and desire to be in others’ good books. But there is a reason why we should stop seeking validation from everyone or stop trying to please everyone because it is impossible.Everyone has their own beliefs, own likes, and their own opinion of doing things right.
So no matter what you do, what career you choose, how you dress, how you spend your money, you will be criticized anyway. What matters is what you feel right or what is good for you.
So have conviction in your faith and do what is right for you. Seeking validation and making other people happy every time is not going to take you anywhere.
9.Take care of your health
This sounds very familiar. Almost all of us hear this from our parents, teachers, friends daily. Still, so many of us neglect this, but why? Simple because we are either busy or lazy or sometimes both.You cannot imagine how much damage this laziness is doing to your body. We all know how much physical exercise is essential for our body. Still, sadly our bad habits somehow manage to dominate our knowledge.
But understand this body is yours. You are the owner of this body, so you will have to care for your body. No one is going to do this for you. I repeat, no one.
So exercise daily, eat healthily, and if you feel something is wrong, visit the doctor and clear it out to avoid any trouble in the future.
10.Learn from your mistake
We all commit mistakes, in fact, chances of committing the mistakes increases when we set out to do something big or something new.
But that does not matter, what actually matters is that what we are learning from those mistakes.
Because if you are not learning from your past mistakes, you are not going to reach anywhere in your life.
If you want to be successful in life don’t run away from your mistakes, stand firm, accept it, and learn from it.
Wherever you go in life, whatever you do in life never forget these small life advice because often whenever we ignore these good things, we find ourselves surrounded by troubles. So go ahead and achieve what you want but do not forget to enjoy your life to the fullest .
