The life we live is not without lessons and lessons that we often learn the hard way, and perhaps the hardest part of this learning process is that many people learn the lesson too late, which eventually makes them regret not taking advantage of the opportunities that were available to them at the right time. So, it never hurts to learn some of the lessons others have learned before us, and try to take advantage of them early before it’s too late to change and try again. Today’s Learn has brought together 7 important life lessons that people often realize too late.
1- If you want to do what you love, then you have to make double the effort
Most people spend their lives not doing what they love but doing what they are supposed to do, or what they are told to do by their friends and family. The worst category is those who spend their lives in nothingness, seeking nothing or trying to achieve anything at all. Always remember that doing what you really love and quench your passion is a privilege and honor that not many people know about, and if you really want to go after your dreams, then you should start working now and do your full effort and even double what others do to reach your goal. But always make sure to enjoy your journey towards the dream, otherwise know that you are not on the right pathدرب
2- There is nothing behind anger but fear
In Star Wars, Master Yoda was right when he said, “Fear is nothing but a path into darkness. It leads to anger, and anger leads to the hatred that only leads to suffering.” Every time we suffer, especially that suffering that lasts for long periods, we believe that the cause of our suffering is something outside our control or something we hate. But as soon as we delve a little deeper into ourselves, we will find that what lies beneath the hate are feelings of anger towards something or something, and we most likely have suppressed these feelings for long periods.
But what really hides behind all these feelings is fear. Fear of weakness, of letting go of what hurts us, of the future, of everything unknown to us. However, if we accept this fear, and acknowledge its presence within us, it will immediately begin to fade, dispelling all feelings of anger and hatred and allowing us to move forward in life.
3- Your daily habits shape your future
Never underestimate what you do today, no matter how small, because everything you do today shapes what you will be tomorrow. When you’ve been doing something for a week, your brain will start preparing for a change. When you do this for a month, you will start to notice a change in your personality. But if you continue like this and stick to this habit for a year or more, you will never know yourself again! A year later, you will be a completely different person. Never underestimate the importance of simple habits that you stick to because regardless of their nature (positive or negative) they will shape your personality in the future.
4- Your feelings are trainable
When we talk about training and exercise, we often think of skill training and development, but have you ever thought that your feelings are also exercisable? Yes, just as you practice playing football, oratory, or other skills, you can train yourself intolerance or anger, you can train yourself in wit, and you can train yourself in negativity and frustration. Your daily emotional formation is only the result of what you rehearsed consciously or unconsciously. You were not born angry, but you accustomed yourself to feeling angry until you no longer remember how to be calm, and the same applies to various other feelings that we live in our lives.
5- Everyone lives for himself
We often hear sentences with this meaning, everyone thinks of himself, or everyone lives only for himself, and this sentence is often viewed negatively. But what if we took another perspective to think about it? Think about it, we all ultimately strive to provide for ourselves, we all have dreams and goals of our own. Of course, there are people we trust and who stand by us, but the best way to avoid disappointments and build healthy relationships with others lies in the awareness that each person has his own life and interests that he seeks to achieve. To their own way soon after, so don’t try to control anyone, and don’t get ahead of anyone at your own expense.
Instead, set your sights on helping others to pursue their own dreams, and ask for their help if you need it. This way, you will find that your relationships are going in the right direction, and you will never be disappointed by others.
6- The joy of the journey will not be matched by achieving the goal
Many people put off feeling joy and happiness until they achieve their goals. Remember, did you ever tell yourself you’d celebrate when you got the job you wanted? Or will you reward yourself when you achieve that goal? Did you not even postpone taking a vacation or a rest until you finish work on that project?
To set your eyes on a lofty goal and work to achieve it is a very special and noble thing, but to sacrifice your happiness and the happiness of those around you for the sake of achieving this goal is completely wrong. No matter how great your goal is, it is not at all worth sacrificing your health or happiness for it and be sure that if you do not enjoy as much as possible during your journey to achieve your ambition, you will only find disappointment at the end of the road.
7- Hard work and laughter go hand in hand
This point builds on the previous one, as many believe that laughing means that you are not taking things seriously. And that happiness should not be present during work and striving, as if human nature has been shaped into fatigue, sadness, and suffering!
This thinking is completely wrong and far from human instinct, as wonderful ideas appear in states of relaxation, and creativity explodes in times of joy and happiness. Human relationships begin with a laugh or a smile, so laughter and joy while working or solving problems will open up new possibilities and potential energies that you would not have imagined when you were in a state of depression.
Start now to change your thoughts and beliefs and do not let the rigid convictions that surround you control you, as time passes and you discover too late that life is simpler and easier than what was pictured for you. Always remember that when you enjoy every moment and do your best to fulfill your passion, only then will you truly be alive.
