There is the type of education we get in school and there are life lessons we learn along the way. Both are important. The only problem is that life moves us far along before we figure out what's going on and the wisdom we hope to have gained is sometimes late in coming.
Following are 16 important lessons that we don’t usually learn in the classroom. Always remember to keep these in your back pocket for years to come.
Lesson 1: Be kind. You never know what battle others may be fighting. Don’t add to their burden.
Lesson 2: Go out of your way to make someone’s day Nothing in life is to be feared. It better. to be understood. is only You will both benefit.
Lesson 3: Have compassion for everyone, no matter how terrible their actions seem.
Lesson 4: Learn to forgive others. It doesn’t mean you’re saying that what was done to you was ok, but it frees you from the negative emotions that create disease within the mind, body and spirit.
Lesson 5: Your legacy is the way you make others feel, and the impressions you leave them with.
Lesson 6: Bad things do happen to good people. Find the lessons buried deep within the suffering. They're there.
Lesson 7: Life is a marathon, not a race. This lesson may sound cliché, but most of us try to sprint through life whether we realize it or not. Concentrate on fulfilling your own personal goals in the timeline that is right for you.
Lesson 8: Learn to enjoy the whole process. We can become so focused on the end result, that we miss the little miracles that happen along the way.
Lesson 9: Nurture your relationships. At the end of your life you’re never going to say, “I wish I’d spent more time working.” But you will say, “I wish I told them that I love them more often.”
Lesson 11: Treat others as you wish to be treated. Never do something to someone else that you would not want done to someone you love or yourself.
Lesson 12: Make friends with yourself. Treat yourself like you would treat someone you cherish. We spend far too much time being our own worst enemies.
Lesson 13: Don’t try to change people. Inspire them with your actions.
Lesson 14: Don’t turn down an opportunity just because you're afraid. Use fear as a compass. Let it guide you in the direction that will produce the most personal growth.
Lesson 15:Change is good. It stretches your limits. And as your limits grow, so do you.
Lesson 16: Be in this moment. The past is over. The future doesn’t exist yet. Plan for the future, but don’t spend all of your mental energy and time there or you'll miss what's happening now.
