10 Valuable Life Lessons People Learn Quite Late In Their Life

In today's scenario, the definition of success has changed. Keeping ourselves busy is what we call 'success'. All we aspire for and run after is money. In the haphazardous situation, we fail to understand what life exactly is and how should we live it to the fullest. I agree money is a must for pleasure but at the same time, it does not give us peace. Don't you people think we are living such monotonous life and it's a need to change our perception towards life and the way we are living it?Here are some lessons which you really need to take to your mind and heart, before it's too late.

#1. Life: it goes on

Everyday is a new beginning. We set new goals, sometimes we achieve it, sometimes we fail to! So what? You'll end up your life? You'll cry over the spilt milk? Well, if you even think of doing so, you are badly on a wrong track. Learn to move on, learn to accept failures and motivate yourself for achieving much bigger than what you've already lost.

#2. Be inquisitive

Never be boring. Always be curious to know about things. Grab as much knowledge as you can. It cost nothing. Don't let people use you like a dummy. The idea that you can't teach the old people about how to handle an iPhone is a fail. With the growing technology, it will not even take a second for other people to crush you like a can and throw you out.

#3. Social butterfly

One can never live a happy life by being isolated. Introverts are a myth. Happiness is being with everyone. Social networks are the oxygen to one's life and in fact a socially active person becomes more successful than the one who keeps himself away from everyone. The more efforts you will put in your social life, the more successful and happy you are likely to be.

#4. That screen won't give you memories.

These gadgets have become the Hitlers of our life and we act like jews. It has affected our life more negatively than in a positive way. Before, on a birthday, we all were busy talking to our family members. But nowadays a simple 'happy birthday' message on WhatsApp is all we get. We all need to disconnect our virtual life and experience the real one.

#5. Dump your worries.

You'll do anything, people will anyway talk about it. It does not matter whether you did something good or bad but it obviously creates a discussion if you did something which made you happy but is wrong according to the ethics of the society. Stop worrying about what people say because they are anyway going to speak and will make the best use of their mouth. Accept the positive comments and ignore the negative ones.

#6. Be a bird.

A work done with disinterest never proves out to be good as well as beneficial. I still see families forcing their children to pursue what they like and not what the kid likes. This way they are not only ruining the future of their kids but demotivating them, crushing their talent badly.  Therefore it is strongly advised to pursue career in a field in which you are unbeatable in and the field which you love. Then work will never be work for you, it will be fun and happiness.

#7. A regretful life is a waste.

We all have grown up hearing - just this highschool then no studies, just college then no studies, just this job then no more work. I think they should add just death then no worries. In all this mess we lose ourselves, we forget to enjoy, we forget to realise that we aren't robots. A life living with regrets is not worth living. Try to fulfill every other need of yours and live a #noregret life.

#8. Always try something new.

A real life is lived when you step an inch out of your comfort zone. Always being a dull person doing only the things which they like will give you no good results. Instead, will leave you with regrets. I'm pretty sure you don't want this to happen. Hence always try to learn something or the other, be it is comfortable or not. And the place between your comfort zone and heart is where the life takes place.

#9. Health is wealth.

Too busy in our lives, we often forget to take care of our health and end up causing serious health problems. Unless and until we won't keep ourselves fit, we won't be able to achieve anything in life. Afterall we need to take care of our bodies, it's the only place we have to live in freely.

#10. Life is short.

Life is too short to let dreams sit idle. Life is too short to wait. Life is too short to live a boring life. Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. Life is too short and it is totally up to you to make it sweet. Live it, love it!
