Life lesson 1: Money will never solve your real-life problems
Think of money as a commodity where you can buy your necessities. You can see a lot of poor people who are living a very happy life and you can a lot of wealthy people who are living a very very terrible life.
Money can buy a car, home, amazing shoes, awesome gadgets but it can never fix a broken relationship or loneliness or happiness. Happiness is not a product that you can buy from somewhere and be happy always. Surely you will be happy buying a brand new iPhone, but it's just temporary.
If you were thinking money will solve all your problems, then it's time to think again.
Life lesson 2: Pace yourself
When we are young we are in a so much hurry to finish of everything we try to do
everything at once. You need to calm down, relax plan everything, experience everything, figure
out your life's purpose, and try to achieve your goal one after the other. Slow down, don't
rush to conclusions, let your life unfold.
Life lesson 3: You can't please everyone
I don't know the secret to success, but the secret to failure is trying to please everyone. These are the words by Bill Cosby. You eventually don't need everyone to agree with you, or even like you.
Of course, it's our human nature to want to be liked, cared for, belonged, respected, valued. But this should not be at the expense of your own self-respect and happiness. Speak up, stand up for yourself demand respect, and stay true to your values.
Life lesson 4: Your health is your most valuable asset
Appreciate your health, good health is often wasted in our younger days, we try to party, we drink, smoke in our younger days, which affects superbly as we grow older.
If you have all the money in the world, all the good dishes, all the delicious dishes to eat, but you have a toothache. Will you enjoy even a single dish? no, right? Think about it? Don't waste your
younger days trying to impress someone, or partying way too hard by drinking smoking.
Next time think about your future when you start to have that delicious chocolate
snack or a pint of beer with your friends.
Life lesson 5: You don't always get what you want
No matter how much planning and hard work you have put into something, sometimes things don't work out as planned. Things don't come up the way that you have planned and that is okay. We all have dreams, visions to achieve our ideal life and what it will look like. but most of the time that's not the reality of life.
Sometimes we might have to take a different direction midway and that's okay. It's okay to take out a few things before we find ourselves in the right direction.
Life lesson 6: It's not always about you.
Take a deep breath and look around you. Look at the world with a perspective outside of your
own. we are so focused on what's happening in our lives, we actually forget what's happening
With the advancement of technologies, the very thing you watching right now has
destroyed the basic way of communication, that's human interaction. We are so much into
the real world, everything has become virtual.
Now take a moment, think about the person you want to speak to, and if this person stays near your locality, go on and see him. Go and see him in person.
Life lesson 7: There is no shame in not knowing
You are not the master of everything. Your not the jack of all trades. Nobody has all the answers and there is no shame in saying "I don't know".
Pretending to be perfect doesn't make you perfect. We all make mistakes and learn as we go and that's life.
Life lesson 8: Long term is a bliss
We often worry about the things we didn't get. That amazing car, that superb gadget,
that broken relationship, that dream home. Most of these worries doesn't even matter 20,
30, 40 years down the line.
It's hard to see the long-term picture when we are busy fighting the
short-term race. Sometimes, you need to move on.
Life lesson 9: Experiment with your life
This is something I personally want to tell you all. When in your 20's, start to explore your
life. Do not settle into a job, or a business, or anything in a hurry. Try out all the areas if
Experiment with all the places possible. Travel as much as you can. Meet a whole lot of
people. Listen to their experiences. Experience their culture, language, tradition.
Keep learning, keep exploring because this is the only time you can freely do
this without any responsibilities. Go out, meet new people, experience their experiences.
Learn to fail Relearn fail and that's life.
Life lesson 10: Don't take anything for granted.
We often don't appreciate what we have until it's gone. This includes your family, wealth, your job, your friends, and so on. When you are too young, you think your parents will always be there for you, but they won't. you think you have plenty of time to get back in touch with your old friends, but you don't.
Nothing in life is guaranteed to be there tomorrow, including those you love. This is the hardest and the most important life lesson to learn. Life can change in an instant. Make sure you appreciate what you have while you still have it.
