There is no doubt that life has its ups and downs. However, how we deal with them can sometimes make all the difference. Today I want to share eight harsh truths that I’ve come to learn from life. There’s also a message in each that I think we can all learn from, and when applied, will improve our lives infinitely
- Nobody Can Transform Your Life Like You Can
Wouldn’t it be lovely if we didn’t have to go behind the wheels, but we could just read a paragraph of a book and become a professional driver? Or, wouldn’t it be nice if our friends could do daring things, and we would benefit from them as well?
The support and help of others can only take you so far, you’re going to have to do your own thing to make big changes in your life situation.
Do things for yourself and learn to stand on your own two feet. People you rely on won’t be around forever, and you don’t want to have to use others as a crutch to get anywhere in life.
- Rain Will Sometimes Cancel Play
On some occasions when you have your shoes on and you’re ready for the party, it’s going to rain. Things aren’t always going to go how you would like them to. Don’t stress about the things that you can’t control. Learn to live with things that happen. You can’t change the past, but you can change how you react to things.
- Someone Else Will Always Have More
Whether it is money, partners, friends or even blog subscribers, there will always be areas where other people have more than you. That isn’t to say you can’t become abundant in whatever you want.
Just because someone has ‘more’, that doesn’t mean they are happy. Read the biography of any celebrity and they will tell you they enjoy their process of earning money, rather than what money can do to make them happy. In other words, focus on what you love, not what the thing you love can get you.
- You Won’t Always Get What You Want
I remember one Christmas when the only thing I had asked for was a toy helicopter. I didn’t ask for anything else so I was pretty sure I would get them. However, I didn’t get it because my parents couldn’t afford it and I ended up crying.
You won’t always get what you want in life: people are going to be late, people will let you down, items you want won’t always be available.
Don’t look for happiness in material possessions and if things don’t go your way, learn to accept them. Life’s too short to stay miserable.
- There May Be No Tomorrow
At least, not for you anyway. We never know what is around the corner, a car crash, a heart attack; heck…even the end of the world is possible. Let’s face it, although we would all like to live till we are 80 years old, that’s certainly not always the case. There will be one day that is our last.
Make the most of each day. Make sure the people you care about actually know it, don’t worry about little matters, just make sure you spend time doing the things you love.
Live life for the moment, accept what is, even if things don’t go your way. Happiness is here, right now if you stop resisting and start accepting. Trust me. Trust JobZilla.
