There is no big teacher in life than life itself. It teaches you the hard way. Here I am sharing life lessons that I have learnt in life.
Health is wealth
Health is the most precious thing in your life. If you are not healthy, you can’t focus on anything else. When you are not healthy, you can’t do even your daily routine work and you become dependent on others. Therefore, take care of your body and health.
Never waste time
Never waste time. Once it’s gone, it’s gone, it doesn’t come back again. Don’t waste time on non-important things. Use it wisely. If you waste time, time will waste you, and you will have no option but regretting about it.
Take your own decisions
Always take your own decisions. Don’t let anyone make decisions for your life. Whether your parents or someone else has taken decisions for you, it is you who have to face the consequences of decisions, therefore, don’t let anyone make decisions for your life. Listen to all, but the last decision should be yours only. Especially marriage and career are the two most important decisions in your life that should be taken by you only.
Have an aim in life
Without an aim or a purpose in life, life is useless. You can’t be successful in life if you don’t have an aim in life.
Do what you like
If you don’t like the work you do, you can’t get success in it. You can succeed in your life only if you do what you like otherwise the work you do becomes a burden. Do what you like.
Be financially independent
To be financially independent is very important in life. Money is important to run your life and fulfill your needs. Being financially independent, you don’t have to look to your parents, siblings, friends, or others for money to fulfill your needs. It helps you earn respect. Money gives you the freedom to live your life in your way.
Don’t be dependent on others
Don’t be dependent on others in life to get your work done. Learn life skills like household chores, cooking, driving, etc. so that you need not be dependent on others.
Everything comes back to you
Every good and bad thing you do, comes back to you. Therefore, never do ill of anyone. Never hurt anyone. Never mock and insult anyone.
Never say never
Never say never that you will never do a particular thing in your life because life breaks your arrogance and makes you do things that you said you wouldn’t do ever in your life.
Learn from the mistakes of others
Life is too short to learn from your own mistakes. Learn from the mistakes of others if you want to grow faster and get success early in your life.
Learn to say no
There are times when someone says you to do something and you don’t want to do that, but you do that just because you don’t want to hurt or disappoint them. Don’t do anything unwillingly. He or she won’t mind if he or she understands you. It’s important to say no for your peace of mind. Learn to say no.
Don’t expect anything from anyone. Expectation results in disappointment. Expect less, disappoint less.
Never compromise with self-respect
No one can disrespect you without your permission. If you don’t respect yourself, others won’t also respect you. Have self-respect. Never compromise with self-respect.
Never judge anyone by his appearance
Sometimes, the most good-looking people turn out to be the worst people, therefore never judge anyone by his appearance as appearance misleads you.
Don’t jump to conclusions quickly
Sometimes, even a lifetime is not enough to understand someone or something therefore, never make an opinion about someone or something very quickly.
Grab the opportunities
Sometimes, once you lose an opportunity, it doesn’t come back, therefore, grab the opportunities whenever it comes your way.
Be grateful for everything that you have because there are millions of people in the world who don’t have even clean water to drink, clothes to wear, a place to live, and many other basic things. Don’t take anything for granted.
There’s no end to desires, therefore, you should know when to stop. If you are content with what you have, you will be happy.
Don’t try to please people because of fear of disliking by them. Don’t do anything just for seeking people’s attention and validation. Always be you.
Never be the second version of someone else. Never be a copycat. Always be original in whatever you do.
Be honest and truthful
When you are honest and truthful, you don’t need to fear anyone and about anything. You can face anyone without any fear when you don’t do anything wrong.
Always be loyal in life. Never break anyone’s trust. It is the worst thing you can do to anyone.
If you expect others to be kind like you, you won’t be able to do any good. It’s not necessary that people will be kind to you just because you are kind to them. Don’t let your kindness die because of some bad people in the world. Be kind anyway.
Do it now
If you love someone, tell them now. If you want to apologize to someone, apologize now. If you want to start something, start now. Don’t wait for something. Don’t procrastinate because there might be no tomorrow. You might not get the chance again. Do it now.
There is no end to learning. To progress in life, you should keep learning. It enhances your skills and knowledge and helps you progress in life.
Knowledge is power
Knowledge doesn’t only mean the knowledge that we acquire from books. It is also knowledge and wisdom we acquire through experiences in life and from people. It also means to be aware and well informed about what is happening around you otherwise you will get left behind. Constant awareness helps you in life.
Don’t be adamant. Don’t be a bigot. It’s not necessary that what you would think a few years ago, you think the same now. Thinking changes with time, experiences, and maturity. If your thinking has changed doesn’t mean you are a hypocrite. It means you and your thinking are also growing. Be adaptable.
Under promise, over deliver
Never speak too much before starting something. It creates pressure on yourself and it also raises expectations of others. You may not able to do what you promised because of high pressure and expectations, therefore, never speak too much before starting something. Speak less, do more.
Don’t wait for perfection
Don’t wait for perfection to start something. If you keep waiting to be perfect before starting something, you won’t be able to start that thing. Perfection is an illusion. There always remains scope for doing better.
Don’t restrict yourself because of others
Thinking about what people will think about you is the biggest hurdle in doing anything. Don’t restrict yourself from doing something because of fear of what others will think about you.
Don’t fear failure
There is no one in the world who hasn’t failed in his life. Even the most successful people have gone through failures. Failures are stepping stones towards success. Success doesn’t come without failures, so don’t fear failures.
Give your best
Don’t do anything half-heartedly. Give your best in everything you do and leave the rest to your fate.
Go with your heart
Many times, you find yourself in a situation in which you are not able to decide whether you should go with your heart or mind. I will say, you should go with your heart. Even if you fail, at least you won’t regret it because your heart tells you to do what you really want to do.
Some things are not meant for you
It doesn’t always happen that you get what you want in life. You must try your best, but some things are not in our control. At some point, you have to accept that some things were not meant for you.
Focus on your life
Life is not a race. Everyone has different circumstances and hardships in life. Compete with yourself and try to be a better version of yourself. When you start focusing on your life, your life automatically starts improving.
Never forget your roots
Never forget your roots. Never forget where you come from. It keeps you humble and grounded.
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. It means that failures, hardships, and painful experiences in life make you strong and help you in making a better person.
Survival of the fittest
This world is not for weak people. You have to be mentally strong, adaptable to change, and fight hard to survive in this world.
You are alone
Whether you accept it or not, the bitter truth is that you are alone in this world. Your parents can support and help you, but in the end, you are the one who has to deal with life alone.
Life goes on
Life doesn’t stop for anyone and anything, it goes on.
Make life worth it
Be a helping hand for someone. Do something good. Live life to the fullest. There is only one life, make it count. Make life worth it.
I hope these life lessons will inspire, motivate and help you in your life.
Make life worth it.
