Have you ever been so wrapped up in the day-to-day grind of life, that you forget what it means to actually be LIVING? Of course you have! For those of you in need of a reset, here are 10 Life Lessons That We Forget Too Easily…
- BUSY DOES NOT EQUAL PRODUCTIVE
You get the same number of hours in the day as everyone else. Use yours wisely. After all, you’re the product of your output, not your effort. Make certain your efforts are dedicated to tasks that get results.
- FEAR IS THE #1 SOURCE OF REGRET
At the end of the day, you’ll regret the chances you didn’t take far more than you will your failures. Don’t be afraid to take risks.
Don’t die inside while you’re still alive.
- SUCCESS IS PRECEDED BY FAILURE
The road to success is paved by mistakes, and true success doesn’t come until you learn to embrace failure.
Your biggest breakthroughs typically come when you’re feeling the most frustrated and the most stuck. It’s this frustration that forces you to think differently, to look outside the box, and find the solution.
- YOU’RE ONLY AS GOOD AS THOSE YOU SURROUND YOURSELF WITH
Surround yourself with people who inspire you, people who make you want to be better.
Anyone who makes you feel worthless, anxious, or uninspired is wasting your time and, quite possibly, making you more like them.
- LIFE IS SHORT
None of us is guaranteed a tomorrow. Yet when someone dies unexpectedly it causes us to take stock of our own life — what’s really important, how we spend our time, and how we treat other people.
Each day is a gift, treat it that way.
- SELF WORTH DOESN’T COME WITH A PRICE TAG
When your satisfaction comes from comparing yourself to others, you are no longer the master of your own destiny.
Regardless of what people think of you at any particular moment, one thing is certain — you’re never as good or bad as they say you are.
- THEY MIGHT NOT APOLOGIZE, FORGIVE THEM ANYWAY
When you forgive someone, it doesn’t condone their actions; it simply frees you from being their eternal victim.
You’re not a victim. Don’t give them the power to make you one.
- YOU’VE CREATED YOUR REALITY
The circumstances you’re living in today are your own — you created them. Your future is entirely up to you.
Remember that it’s always better to be at the bottom of the ladder you want to climb than at the top of one you don’t.
- WHEREVER YOU ARE, BE THERE
You can’t reach your full potential until you learn to live your life in the present.
Make peace with your past, accept the uncertainty of the future, and wherever you are…be there.
- THERE’S ONLY ONE THING THAT’S CERTAIN IN LIFE, IT CHANGES
Life doesn’t stop for anyone. When things are going well, appreciate them and enjoy them, as they are bound to change. If you are always searching for something more, something better, that you think is going to make you happy, you’ll never be present enough to enjoy the great moments before they’re gone.
