Top Life Lessons
Actually, the post for today is to share the top life lessons that keep resurfacing in my life lately.
Willingness to learn something new every day (Aspirations):
The very first life lessons that have been keeping me busy is learning. To be frank, I have been challenging myself lately and being surrounded with people that have my best interest at heart, I realized they as well have been indirectly challenging me.
In order to move forward and have the attributes that distinguish yourself from others, then you have to be willing to learn every day.
Look at it this way, before the end of the day you must have an added knowledge to the ones you already possess.
For instance, I am still trying to find my way around learning French and in all honesty, it’s an interesting language.
Self-love is essential (Personal Growth):
The virtues of being competent and stable evolve deeply from within you. In order for you to beam your light at others, you need to selfishly bask yourself in your energy. Simply put, the love and compassion you wholeheartedly give others, radiate it to yourself as well.
Discover yourself, make time for yourself, learn to let go of negative thoughts, see yourself as a warrior, believe in your strength, utilize your potentials fully without having to crawl back or feel intimidated, give back to yourself fully and then you get to serve others a dose of your love.
That love you are sharing emanates from you which implies… Your Imperfect self.
The act of comparing yourself to others is very destructive. This implies that you start wishing instead of acting appropriately. Hence, stop limiting your abilities to that of others. Overtime, you start living a miserable life as you tend to get very desperate (just to name a few).
However, you could learn from the experiences of others. Filter out the ones that could assist you in your own journey and discard the rest that will halt your progress.
Realistically, there is always something for everyone. Your approach to success will be different from others. This will be your own uniqueness, story, impact and own legacy.
Networking is very beneficial:
Lately, there have been quite awesome opportunities that resulted from just making time to network. Networking is simply building reputable relationships with people that can be of positive influence and support to your success.
There are a lot of benefits that can be derived from connecting with people from different countries and cultures in the likes of invitation to professional events, positively influenced, getting job opportunities, gaining new knowledge just to name a few.
For instance, I have been getting quite interesting referrals and collaborations from companies. Now, this could be as a result of the moments where I have discussed with people about my interests, career perspectives, make insightful contributions to help them achieve a goal and much more.
Stop procrastinating and just do it:
Even though this is not a good practice but I still fell victim of it. I shared ways on how to fix your mindset and increase your productivity here.
The fact that you will have everything planned in your brain but then to put it to work will be as if your blood is about to be extracted out (I had to be extra, lol).
