What is the most important lesson or lessons in life that you have learned over the years?
For me, there are several; but the most important is to understand the importance of life-long learning, and being kind to others.
There are many good lessons I have learned over the decades, the most important I have learned of late, is this: Do not let others define who you are. Take nothing personally. Speak only what is true, especially during "self -talk."
I continue to work on self improvement and learn new things every day.
Thanks for this good question.
Well as for me, I have learned the power and the effects of loving and being loved. I guess that is the only true power in the world world. Any other good power flows from this. Thanks for the question.
Yes it is, Micadeolu. One tenet that is common to all religions (Christianity, Islam, Judaism, etc.) is this: Love others and you would have yourself loved by them. Yet it's the one precept that people have the most difficult time in following.
Yes, there are many; but I have found for me is to forgive, so that each day we will experience contentment in this life no matter what is going on in our life at the time. Of course, I will think of something else was I hit submit ...
Don't react to something that upsets you before getting a good night's rest. Then see if you still want/need to react in the morning. This one practice has saved me a ton of grief.
So very true Kathleen and Faith. Walk away or sleep on the issue first. We can't control what happens to us in life, but we can control how we react to it..
well what i have learned is that one should never lose his decorum to please others or try to be over humble because then people take you for granted
When I have a really big or emotional decision to make I always sleep on it. I have learned to think about important decisions for a longer amount of time.
This too shall pass. The sun will come up tomorrow.
Simply accepting the fact life has highs and lows keeps me grounded. It also helps me keep things in perspective especially when disappointments and heartaches arise from time to time.
Knowing that life is temporary and therefore any problem in life must also be temporary helps me to "roll with the punches". It also helps to always have something on your calendar to "look forward too".
Sometimes just knowing you have an event, activity, vacation, or some outing coming up in few weeks or couple of months provides (proof) that everyday is not going to be just like today. Whenever people believe they have nothing to look forward to that causes them to want to give up. Learning to ride the lows as well as the highs is important. Everyday is a (new) day!
Change is constant and inevitable. Accept change and discover the constant. Inevitably that will reoccur.
The biggest lesson i learn't in my life, & i can't imagine there's a bigger or better lesson to learn..Was when i learn't about mindful distraction + mindful meditation, & emotions & feelings control practice..The reason why i think it's the biggest lesson we can learn in life, is because it answers so many questions about our life..Life to a person doing the training i mentioned, then becomes all about learning & growing..It's the most fascinating thing there is, & it's simple to do after a lot of practice & a good few months time.
