5 Great Lessons You Can Learn From Life

“I take all of my life lessons, which some people might call ‘mistakes,’ and apply them to my future so that I keep growing.” ~ Kimberly Caldwell

Can you step back from your own mind for a little while and realize that life is not as bad as you think it is? Can you pay attention to the lessons life wants you to master and allow these lessons to help you grow and develop as a highly functioning person? Can you allow these lessons to shape you and to help you discover more about yourself and you inner powers? Life wants you to be happy, life wants you to be at peace with yourself and the world around you and life wants you to know that there is no need for you to struggle, there is no need for you to suffer.

5 Great Lessons You Can Learn From Life

1. How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours – Wayne Dyer

You really can’t control how other people behave and you really can’t change who they are and what they do but you can always control the way you respond to what they are doing. You can always control your own interpretations, perceptions, attitudes and behaviors and by doing so you will definitely become a happier and less stressed person.

2. Your beliefs create your reality

Question everything. Question your beliefs, question everything you were told by your parents, your teachers, your friends, mass media, etc. and check whether the beliefs you now have are yours or were they passed on to you by others. You lived your life until this day based on your beliefs and you are the person you are today because of your beliefs; you are where you are today because of these beliefs. Heal your limiting beliefs and you will heal and transform your life.

“Man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is.” ~ Goethe

3. Perfection leaves no room for improvement

Don’t aim for perfection but rather aim to always give your best in everything you do. Know that the lessons you will learn and master along the way are way more important than the actual things you dreamed of achieving.

“There are no such things as limits to growth because there are no limits to the human capacity for intelligence, imagination, and wonder.” ~ Ronald Reagan

4. If you don’t make good use of your unique gifts and talents they will go to waste

No matter who you are, where you are and no matter what you do, always remember that there is something you can do better than anyone else. Don’t compare yourself to others, don’t compete and don’t look for approval anywhere else but within yourself. Find what that special something is, work on improving it every single day and promise yourself to always share your awesomeness with the whole world.

“The person born with a talent they are meant to use will find their greatest happiness in using it.” ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

5. In life, you don’t attract what you want, you attract what you are

Change your thinking and you will change your beliefs, change your beliefs and you will change your behavior, change your behavior and you will change your life. You attract in life, not the things you want to attract but rather the things that reflect the kind of person you really are underneath it all.

”If you’re obsessed with defeating the other guy and winning at all costs, then you’re guaranteed to attract the vibrational equivalent of this thinking into your life- even if you do yoga and stand on your head chanting mantras everyday.” ~ Wayne Dyer

    I’ve seen #6 in my life a lot recently as the clients that I am currently attracting are ideal clients — the kind that I LOVE to work with. This isn’t because I’ve changed my marketing – it’s because I’ve changed how I show up in my life.

    Thanks for the well-written reminder that we do indeed control our lives.
