Here are 10 lessons
Very useful, inspirational & relevant to all of us
Lesson 1: Never give up when you truly believe!
The person with big dreams is more powerful than the one with all the facts.
It is so true, as you too would have experienced in your life! Nothing beats a man or a woman driven by passion. There can be intelligent people around who have all the facts as to why something can or cannot work. But there is none to beat someone with passion. The passionate doesn’t care if his or her dream has been achieved or not before. They are the only ones with a purpose in life.
“Close some doors today. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance, but simply because they lead you nowhere.” Paulo Coelho
Lesson 2: Never laugh at someone’s dreams.
A mistake you should never ever do! If something has not been achieved, there is no way for anyone to say whether it is achievable or not in the future. Most of the stuff we use today in daily life, all the technology stuff and gadgets, a few years ago people would have laughed them off. But today they are not only real but have also become indispensable for all of us including those who would have laughed at the idea when it was first conceived.
When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. Maya Angelou Click To Tweet
Lesson 3: Find a job you like and you add five days to every week.
If you are passionate about your work, work never feels like work. You enjoy your work. Doing what you love is the best way to live a fulfilling life! Click To Tweet
“You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.” Oprah Winfrey
Lesson 4: Every so often, let your spirit of adventure triumph over your good sense.
Unless you don’t make mistakes, you are never going to learn new things. Those who have not done mistakes have hardly done anything. So be adventurous, take risks. What’s the worst that will happen? You may make a mistake but you will also learn something new that can be a foundation for doing something great!
“In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.” Eleanor Roosevelt
Lesson 5: Be the first to say “hello”.
Let not ego come in between and be the first to spread warmth, friendship and positive energy.
“I made a resolve then that I was going to amount to something if I could. And no hours, nor amount of labor, nor the amount of money would deter me from giving the best that there was in me.” Harland Sanders
Lesson 6: Give people a second chance but not a third.
Everyone makes mistakes and everyone deserves a second chance. So, it is important to be nice but at the same time, we should not be stupid to keep feeding the mistakes of those who simply don’t want to learn from the past.
You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending. C. S. Lewis Click To Tweet
Lesson 7: Win without boasting and lose without excuses.
There are so many things that have to come together to achieve success. If you have succeeded in something, then it’s quite possible that certain events and certain people have made a positive contribution to that success. So, don’t take all the credit and boast about the success. Success is sweet when you can share it with many others. In the same vein, if you have made a mistake, accept it and move on. It is a hard lesson but a lesson which will help in making good judgment the next time. So, accept failure without giving an excuse.
Take chances, make mistakes. That’s how you grow. Pain nourishes your courage. You have to fail in order to practice being brave. Mary Tyler Moore Click To Tweet
Lesson 8: It’s not your job to get people to like you; it’s your job to like people.
You are in control of your feelings and emotions. Don’t carry the baggage of hatred and dislike. It will wear you down and that extra weight will make your back hunched. Like people but don’t expect everyone else to like you. You are not in control of other’s emotions and feelings. Leave the other’s feelings to the others.
“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them?that only creates sorrow. Let reality be a reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” Lao Tzu
Lesson 9: Fight fairly, Give generously, Laugh loudly, Love deeply.
Truly Golden words!
“But one of the big lessons I have learned from my journey is you can’t please everyone, so don’t try.” Chris Colfer
Lesson 10: Become someone’s hero.
In your journey to success, you would have looked up to someone and someone surely would have inspired you. If you ever get an opportunity to be someone’s mentor in your later life, consider it a privilege and be happy to be a part of somebody else’s success.
“Life is available only in the present. That is why we should walk in such a way that every step can bring us to the here and the now.” Thich Nhat Hanh
Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced. Søren Kierkegaard Click To Tweet
“Life is 10 percent what you make it, and 90 percent how you take it.” Irving Berlin
