What is the greatest lesson you have learned from your life?
Experiences teach man a lot. It will be different for each person. Hence what they learn from these experiences is also entirely different.
I actually wrote a list of these on my own website a couple of years ago. I think the greatest lesson of all was "Do not give advice". This applies even if advice is asked for! Generally people know what they "should" do, they either want confirmation or the opportunity to say why "your advice" will not work. If asked, I usually say "what would you advise your best friend to do in this situation?". People are more likely to listen to their own advice!
you cant make someone love you/expert advice always fails/sometimes walking away is the only help you can give to the one you love more than your own self
I have learned that no matter how dire circumstances are, or how emotionally devastated one feels, it will get better with time. I try to remember that if things seem bad - that the feelings are transient and will improve.
Definitions are critical to understanding.
Do unto others what you would have them do unto you.
Perception is the path closest to perfection.
Love is fleeting - meaning it's better spread around like manure.
Sometimes it stinks and needs to be aired in order to be appreciated for what it can do to make things grow. Composting with it makes it smell much better over time.We can't grow without it.Love conquers all.
Self-reliance, self-acceptance, self-awareness, focus on "all things bright and beautiful" to fade the shadows and darkness along life's journey. Being courageous to face life and being creative and productive; then share to others freely. What you sow is what you reap in multiples so sow only goodness and beauty. Shine, shine, shine and let everybody shine with you.
I learned that I wish that I had gone to online college when I was younger than I am now.
The greatest lesson I've learned from my life is that of the importance of sacrifice. I learnt that from my dad, who wasn't around much when I was a kid, because he worked two full time jobs so I could have a good education and standard of living. I believe the ability to show sacrifice and humility are some of the most important life qualities someone will ever have.
To be humble and how great is a person can become at the same time. To accept changes.
I have learned not every person will be a good friend it is rare to find such friends. Follow your own thoughts and don't tell others what to do.
Think before you do things! Very simple yet effective advice.
Think of the ramifications of you're actions beforehand and who and how they will effect others and yourself.
I didnt grasp the gravity of such a statement until my mid 20's, but man does it work well. Thanks Dad.
Probably the best lesson I've learnt in my life is to 'get our priorities straight'. This may not seem much, but I assure you, if you think deep into some decision you have to make, it always boils down to how and what you prioritize the things and affected parties... I've learned this the hard way...
The biggest lesson I have learned in my life is that the only constant in life is change. Nothing, but nothing, ever stays the same...even the earth itself.
Wow ..A great question. Especially since we are all still alive that are hubbing lol and we continue to learn lessons daily!! I would say that you can't "judge a book by its cover" meaning judging the person behind the face. Sooooo many times in life I have assumed that I knew someone or formed an opinion of someone before truly getting to know them only to be pleasantly surprised or terribly disappointed!!!! lol
Another great lesson is mortality..we are all mortal and should each and every day we breathe becaue tomorrow isn't promised as my grandmother would say:)
I have learnt that children should always obey and listen to their parents advice. If I had listened to my father when I was 17, I think things would have turned right for me in a better way. Also, I have learnt never to accept and believe in a Pastor's advice when it comes to relationship.
Thanks for asking.
No matter how dire your situation, there is someone who has had it worse.
Putting the toilet seat down when finished saves a lot of grief.
The greatest lesson I learned in life was to work steadfast towards your dream goal. Don't worry about the bullies.They fear your success.
You have asked a real good question & someday I'll like to write a hub on this.
