Following 10 points won't make you feel happy, but realizing them will surely make you
life more than ever. Please indulge..
1. Time is limited
you say "I know it" you might take a look over your life again. However
old you are, looking back on your life experiences you'll notice that
it has no 'time' in the formula. Everything seems like it happened
appreciate every minute you spend. Most cancer survivors and people who
were tiny step away from losing their life begin to know how important
is to live well and appreciate things we already have around us.
was chatting with a cab driver few months back and what he said
startled me: "Well, son, time is passing really fast, you know. My
father yesterday told me: (around 80 something years old man) 'It was
like yesterday I was in the army.' This life sure as hell passes fast."
time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be
trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's
thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own
inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart
and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become.
Everything else is secondary.” -
2. You live the life you create
you go out and see all the vibrant things, cars, people, animals, birds
around you, endorse that they have massive impact over our life. That's
why we are together in one world.
And the paradox is, that neither of those things can affect you, as long as you don't react upon it.
The point is, that every person creates a world on his own derived by his/hers decisions and actions.
we think that everything happens to us, it's what really happens. It's
our reaction that gives life to bad things that happen to us. It is what
we give to the
that will dictate the things we see in front of us.
mistake and happiness is made by your choice. Sometimes our ignorance
causes trouble, but we need everything we can acknowledge to get
peace of mind
and live the best life we create.
more on things you do, and give credit to. Those things dictate your
future, and sometimes they are the most destructive, or the best things
for you. Choose wisely.
3. Busy and productive are two different things
makes hell of a fortune by being busy for 160 hours a month. Being busy doesn't necessarily makes you productive.
Success doesn't come from busyness. It comes from productivity + best use of time. Sometimes it can be 3-4 hours a day.
people are scattered everywhere. They have no aim, nor balance in their
life. We should never forget that life is not about work, money and
burdening ourselves with baloney things and forget that this is actual

yourself to have balance in all things you do. When the scale goes to
one thing, we loose from another. Of course everything takes sacrifice,
but not for so long to make us forget how to live.
4. Thinking and doing are two separate worlds
are two different worlds because it's the disparity between success and
failure, and living and dying. They are so close, and yet so far. This
may be the number one painful truth we forget.
how many things would be done if you just started doing things, instead
of wondering and thinking. The first thing we should do to keep on the
thorny road is action. Without action you will create a state where
you’ll be mind-shackled.
applying the thoughts in the physical words, we create a state of
self-prison. We create a person inside our head that doesn’t allow any
thoughts to go through the hands and legs.
you want to do things, you must apply your thoughts in the physical
world. It’s not the stupid people are not full of doubts, as Charles
Bukowski says; it is the ones that don’t do.
are genius. Just think of how many successful ideas you have through
the day. And you won’t believe that 99% of them with action can become
real. As soon as you chose to switch your mind to the next one, without
taking action for the previous one, you create a chain reaction of
successful ideas gone forever.
5. Failure is part of success
"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time." -
learned that it seems like life is playing with us sometimes. It gets
you to the ground, with your head, in the mud and tells you:
is the bottom, it's the worst it can happen. This is how people feel
sometimes, and even worse than this. You can be here your whole life,
complaining how life happens to you, or you can go wash your face, and
start taking things in your hands."
do we know what's success, when we don't know what is failure? Almost
in everything we have to grasp both sides to understand the whole.
to make mistakes, and fail hundreds of times, until there's no gap in
your actions that will give you another fail on the road.
6. Self-love has big role in your life
day should begin with waking up, going to the bathroom, and looking in
the mirror. That masterpiece you see every day, is what is going to
change the world!
are piece of art, everyone of us. Art has no rules, or how it should
be. Every negation of it, can only harm the way we think. No one can
love you if you don't love yourself. Even if they do for a given time,
they will raise a white flag.
We do need support to love ourselves, but once we start doing it ourselves.
“The only person who can pull me down is myself, and I'm not going to let myself pull me down anymore.” ― C. JoyBell C.
7. Some people should be removed and nothing else
around us, especially the ones we contact with, play crucial role in
how we live our life. They can be the biggest blessing or the biggest
mistakes we have. Jim Rohn says that “You are the average of the five
people you spend the most time with." It looks pretty true to me.
Toxic environment is invisible cage. Even a whole society and circle of people can be toxic.
you belong to a toxic environment you will spend your life being
unproductive, switching from failure to failure. Then you may think
“you’re an introvert.” No, you are person who is in the wrong
environment. You are individual who still haven’t found his/hers soul
can be a hardest task. You’ve spent years with people with whom you’ll
have to cut the cord in a day. It’s never easy to let go of habits, even
if you’re aware they are not bringing any growth.
Step aside and let it pass through. Then you will be obsessed with the person you really are. You will
activate your gut feeling
you will attract every tiny positive achievement. The right people will
come, financials will flow, and happiness will surround you. Everything
changed because you let go of people polluting your life. I encourage
you to think about it.
8. Forgive before you get an apology
Holding grudges rents a place in your head and keeps you busy with something that shouldn't last a second in your life.
gets much easier when you learn to accept all the apologies you never
got. Life is all about experiences, positive or negative. They are all
part of the life lessons. When you forgive someone you promise yourself
not to hold the irreversible past against your present self.
You deserve peace of mind because of you and no one else.
9. Every second changes everything
one of the beautiful facts that motivates us to take risks. If we don't
take risks, things still change, every second. And risking might
benefit us every way possible.
Everything rushes in our lives, and yet life is so short.
most interesting part is that it is one second that changes life. One
second can be the reason we succeed, start accumulate happiness, or fell
in love. It's just a tiny fraction of time that gives so much meaning
to an average span of 80 years.
we learn to appreciate one second in our day, we'll learn to appreciate
everything we say, do, and think. We will appreciate our whole life.
10. Your possessions is not who you are
the world circles, it has made us think that we need a lot more than we
actually need. It has became a massive materialistic competition.
An average person watches TV, read papers,
watch the bullcrap news
while everything an average human does is to think like most people.
When you are like the rest, your uniqueness is assassinated.
regular pattern of life is what makes us think that possessions should
be put before everything. People kill, screw best friends, ramshackle
businesses because of money.
people realize how powerful is the spirit, the inner self, thoughts,
emotions, and the brain itself, is when we realize that stuff is really a
you put your mindset on the money, not putting it in the process of
making them, I guarantee you'll never have them. Money is a tool. Don't
let them possess your spirit.
What do you think you can add to the list? Is there any painful truth in your life you often forget?
