Lessons learned from life to succeed

The most valuable lessons we don’t learn at school. But these are taught to us by life. Everyone has these moments in life where you ask yourself: WHY ME? What did I do to deserve this?

Well I had a lot of these moments.Why do I have to experience such pain? Why God why me what did I do to deserve this? This could be the dirty work of karma of course. But for now let’s not take that in consideration.

What I found out is that in these difficult times God planned some very nice rewards for us. But in order to deserve these nice rewards he wanted to test us.

One of these events in my life were so painful that I didn’t have anything to life for. I just didn’t want to live at some point. Though the people surrounding me didn’t notice a thing. I was down for 1 or 2 days. I was praying to God and praying and asking him why, why me. And at the end of my prayer something magical happened.

I said to myself this sadness will bring me nowhere further than the grave. So at that point out of nowhere I came with new solutions. These solutions were more than substituting my original plans. So God already knew my path but he just needed to know how I would deal with the word failure. People around me think that I am Miss perfect but they don’t have any kind of clue of the pain that comes before succeeding.

Failure either means literally failing or becoming a stronger person to succeed. Coping with failure is what makes a difference between successful people and failures.

For instance Whats App co-founder Brian Acton. He was turned down for employment by Facebook and Twitter. A failure would still be home and wondering why life treated him so badly. But a successor such as him would ask what other opportunities life has planned for him. So If you want to become successful you have to fail first, and not just failing, failing badly!

Worrying about the future too much?

Well I’m in between classes and decided to write a bit.                                                                                   So I bet you have these moments in life where you wonder so much about the future. That moment where you feel so uncertain of the future. Just thinking about the fact that if one thing goes wrong your whole life will fall apart. What if something happens to your loved ones, what if you get fired, what If you lose everything you have. What if, what if, what if. There is a lot of wisdom around this topic. Everything happens for a reason. Everything will fall in place eventually. All this wisdom is very true! But we are all human beings. It is just natural that we worry. So the question is how can we put all this wisdom in reality. How can we stop worrying about the future, knowing everything is happening for a reason. Well here is some advice I just got this year. And I am still repeating it every single day. Every night or if you want in the morning, write five things you are grateful for. Do this every single day. Believe me, it really helps! I do it every single day. I for example write how grateful I am for my family. So start doing this today. Take a pen or tablet and write five things you are grateful for and repeat this every single day. This will make you not only a more grateful person but it will also lead to more inner peace.
