10 Lessons People Learn Too Late in Their Lives
Life is short, so we should all do what we can to make sure that it is the best life lived. We waste so much time with things that are unimportant, we waste time focused on the wrong things and we waste time complaining. Life is not from the second you are born to the second you die, it is right now.
You can choose what to do between now and your next breath, you can choose to be the very best that you can be and to appreciate life to the full, or you can choose to waste it. So, choose everyday to make it count, love hard, laugh loud and press forward for the things that make your heart smile.
Here are things you need to know before life slips away from, before you realise how much time has gone and before it is too late:
Right now, this second, is your life – make every moment of your life count. Be compassionate, live boldly, be kind and live without regrets. Life is a precious gift, take it as is and make each moment count, because once it is gone you can never get it back.
Life is short – we only get given so much time to do what we want to do, to be who we want to be and to accomplish the things that we want to. So, go out there and get the life that you want, fight for it because tomorrow may never come. Today you have a chance to go all out for the things you want and the people who mean the world to you.
The sacrifices that you make today will pave the way for your future – anything worth doing or having takes hard work and commitment, so do today to start shaping your future. The work you do today will contribute immensely to the future that you want, so make that sacrifice today and be one of the few that really pay the price to where they want to go.
Procrastination only slows your progress down – procrastination is like postponing the future that you want. So, today make a choice to do something that will take you closer to what you want, because tomorrow you will see the difference it will have made and you will be very happy with yourself.
In failure are priceless life lessons – failing at something does not mean defeat or that it is over, it is merely a lesson that life needed you to learn. So, embrace your failures and know that they are only stepping stones to all that you want.
You are important – you are a very important person in your life. Focus on doing things that nourish your health and body, and be kind to yourself. Focus on being happy.
A persons actions speak much louder than the words that they say – There are people who know exactly what to say and how to say it to get your attention and impress you. Focus not on what they say but on the things that they do, because their words should match their actions.
Small acts of kindness can change someones life – you have the power to impact someones life in a positive way. You can choose to smile at a stranger or to do something kind, and it may not seem like a lot, but it will mean a lot to someone.
There is pain inside every single one of us – Life is filled with ups and downs. There’s beauty and there’s also sadness. We have been hurt before and most of us have pain but in all of that, life is also filled with beauty. Embrace that beauty and all that life has to offer, and know that you are a survivor.
Time and age heal pain – pain diminishes as time passes and something that can be totally devastating right now will not have the same sting in our lives 5 years down the line.
