Nothing in this world is perfect, and with that we also mean that life isn’t perfect as well. It is full of ups and downs and the latter can feel quite unfair at times.
But the best way to ensure that your life is good is to just go with the flow. It’s a winding and twisted path and you’ll have to struggle through every step. But don’t forget to just take a deep breath and relax. It will be fine in the end.
Think about these 10 truths to help you get through your worries.
1. ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS
Just thinking or talking about some goals won’t work at all. You need to go out and take the first step towards fulfilling it. There’s no point in being too scared to start a new venture. Remember that, thinking about something and actually doing something is not the same thing. You need to get out there and do the things you want instead of just talking about the same.
2. YOU ARE NOT YOUR WEALTH
You might not have that palatial mansions and a fleet of Rolls Royce but that doesn’t make you poor. When you have enough money for three meals a day, a roof over your head and clothes, you’ll be quite alright. Remember that you as a person are separate from your possessions and that material stuff does not define you.
3. TO SUCCEED, YOU MUST FIRST FAIL
All of us make mistakes and stumble into the many pitfalls that life throws in at every turn. But it’s okay if you didn’t succeed the first time. Just get up and try again and again until you reach the top. Everyone learns from their mistakes and many times failure has proven to be the key to success!
4. THIS TOO SHALL PASS
In this world, all things have to end sooner or later. Acceptance of this important truth will help you get over your losses much quicker. Next time you are going through a hard time, make sure to remind yourself that nothing lasts forever and that whatever it is, that too shall pass.
5. EVERYONE IS FLAWED
Don’t put anyone on a pedestal because you will only be met with disappointment. Remember that even the best person is only human and that everyone is bound to make mistakes. In life, you have to take the sweet with the sour. No one can be without a flaw.
6. ONLY YOU CAN MAKE YOUR LIFE MEANINGFUL
You get to decide what path your life will take, by your thought, your words and your actions. Just do your best and show appreciation for all the wonderful things that you get out of life. Being bitter and unhappy is a choice that you consciously make, so make a choice to be happy and to make your life meaningful.
7. WE ARE ALL MORTAL
Nobody in this world can escape death. Money and power cannot buy you immortality. The best thing to do is to enjoy this life you have been given and live each day to the best of your ability. We never know when our time will come so it is important to try and not have regrets.
8. IT’S ALRIGHT TO FEEL DISAPPOINTED
It’s not possible to always walk around wearing a smile. It’s completely okay to just break down and shed a few tears, possible rant a little, every now and then. Bottling up your emotions will only be bad for you in the long run. Don’t try to protect yourself from whatever you are feeling.
9. YOU GET WHAT YOU GIVE
As the old saying goes, “do unto others what you want others to do unto you”. Treat people the way you’d like them to treat you if you want to win them over. Be kind, considerate and respectful. In this world, what goes around comes around so just like every good deed will come back to you, so will every bad one.
10. THERE’S ALWAYS A NEW DAY
When you feel like you can’t go on any longer, just remember that tomorrow is another day. No matter what has happened to you so far, the night will end and a new day will come. You will get a fresh start.
