1. Life doesn’t wait for anyone, it goes on
The first lesson on my list is that life doesn’t stop for anyone no matter how famous or rich they are there’s no way around life. You need to know that your problems are only your problems and other people might show sympathy or pretend like they can feel you and are upset for what you’re going through but that’s mostly just out of courtesy probably to get along with you and in reality no one really cares about what you are feeling and why , yes there might be some people and by some I mean the very few people that are really close to you and only they might genuinely care for you for example your blood relations . You also need to learn that there might be difficult times but always remember that life is like a coin and it also has two sides a good and a bad one. Learn to be strong in the bad phases of life and remind yourself that the world has no pity for you and that time doesn’t stop for anyone either keep up or get left behind
2. Choose a profession that you are passionate about
The second lesson on my list plays a major role in determining where you are going to stand financially in the years to come. We have been brain fed since we are little children in schools till the day we graduate from University to only focus on our grades and if someone doesn’t want to be a doctor or engineer our society starts considering them below average and even a no brainer. I don’t really get how is someone who is passionate about some other field of profession take for example media or journalism any less than a doctor or engineer ? This pressure is the reason many students are forced to commit suicide every year and it’s sad how in such modern times our thinking is the same as it was a couple hundred years ago. I believe that a person who is passionate about another profession can be more successful in that specific field compared to If they were to be a doctor or a scientist.
We as a society need to do something about this thinking and move on from it so everyone can do whatever they love to do or have a passion for that way I can guarantee more examples of success than failures in the upcoming years
3. It’s better to learn from other people’s mistake than your own
There is this saying that I’ve heard multiple times from a number of people and I’m sure you might have heard it too coming from someone atleast once in your life it is that ‘we should learn from our mistakes and I used to believe in it myself and thought it was a wise advice for years . Now let me tell you something since the past couple of years I started feeling a bit mature and also started realising how this world really is a cruel place so I decided to myself that I will listen to what everyone has to say but will only do what my brain or inner instinct tells me to do. During this phase I also discovered that rather than learning from my own mistakes why not try avoiding them in the first place and learn from the mistakes of those who have been in the same place as I am today . You know this happens alot , sometimes we even know deep inside us that doing a certain thing would do us harm and doing something else would do us good but we just choose to completely ignore the facts like we are somehow going to dodge the bullet that many people before us couldn’t it’s just part of human nature to consider ourselves better than the ones who came and left before us . In other words everyone knows that smoking or substance abuse could kill them sooner or later but still no one really seems to care and just ignores it until something serious really does happen. How stupid can we be?
I believe that rather than waiting to make the same mistake others made before us and learning from it after suffering from negative consequences why not take a look at some facts from the past and learn from the mistakes that were made by people before us so we can avoid repeating them that way we won’t have to experience the same consequences win win situation.
4. It’s not truly necessary to go to the gym in order to stay fit
We have been brain fed ever since we hit puberty that in order to stay fit and in shape we need to join the gym. I myself shared the same belief until I was tired of trying to lift weight. I was always inspired with Arnold and wanted to build some muscles but little did I know that the way I was trying to achieve that was simply unethical. Would you believe that I have tried to go to the gym 7 times every year once from the age of 13 till 18. The last and the seventh time I had promised myself if it doesn’t work this time I quit and will assume it’s just not my thing. Once again after going for a month barely five days a week I was done and couldn’t bare with the cramps and body aches. I had lost all hope but two years ago I was reading this article from someone who is really smart and fit too. I’m thankful to that person because of what I learned from him . It made so much sense when he said that the reason more than eighty percent of us fail starting off with hardcore exercises at the gym from the very beginning is because our muscles are weak at first. I realised he was right and I was skinny and no matter what I did I didn’t lose or gain weight. He also said that for the first month try only stretches and that’s what I did started off with full body stretches and today it’s a whole year I have muscles and am quite close to having a six pack . After a month of stretching the same gym exercises were like a walk in the park not a single cramp. I can’t believe that now I enjoy going to the gym what seemed like a punishment before . I hope you get my point since it’s an important lesson and mistake most people make.
5. Stop expecting from others
The last but surely not the least important lesson I learnt in my twenties is to never keep expectations from just anyone who pretends to be close to you. Do you know that almost every person has been decieved or hurt by someone they knew. What I’m trying to say here is that if we stop and think for a second someone who we don’t know or care for can not even hurt us. Only the people in our life and the ones we choose to trust and expect from can hurt us. We give the keys to them ourselves so please before trusting or expecting from someone be a hundred percent sure that they are worth it because they will either take advantage of you or play with your feelings and one day sooner or later leave you hurting.
