Here is a list of some of the things I have experienced and learnt in life. It is not that I won’t make similar mistakes again in life, but going over this list again and again makes me more self-aware and keeps pushing me forward on the path of self-realization. I would strongly suggest that everyone should take some time out, reflect on your life and come up with a similar list. You will be amazed how much fun it is to walk down your memory lane.
I have learnt…..Mother is the greatest gift from God. The only time she smiles when you cry is the day you were born. (Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam)
I have learnt…. Having an elder brother and younger sister is priceless in life. You grow up transforming into a leader who has the perfect balance of being competitive, aggressive, gentle and caring.
I have learnt….. Best friends don’t always form the best business partners. Friendship cannot substitute professionalism and meritocracy.
I have learnt…… If you think your life is useless or you have nothing worthwhile to do, go and spend a day with a person who is about to die. You will realize how many unfulfilled dreams you still have to achieve.
I have learnt…… Everyone says that they respect an honest opinion or feedback, but very few can actually digest it.
I have learnt….. Mood is like a two-edged sword. It can either propel you with supersonic speed towards your goal or put you in a never ending downward spiral. Usually it’s the latter.
I have learnt…… Words are the biggest weapons we possess. They should always be soft and tender. You don’t know when you might have to eat them.
I have learnt…..Ignorance is bliss and it is better to under-think than over-think a problem.
I have learnt…… Give a person complete authority with no accountability, and he/she will reveal his/her true character.
I have learnt….. No one is perfect until you fall in love with them.
I have learnt…… Sitting with parents and listening to stories of their struggles has taught me some of the biggest lessons in life that no educational degree has provided me so far.
I have learnt…..While mentoring someone always be patient and have a smile on your face. It can do wonders to their confidence.
I have learnt…..If you think you are wise and educated, sit with a kid and see for how long you can survive answering his/her questions of curiosity.
I have learnt…..Everyone is in a hurry to reach the top of the mountain, but life and happiness is all in the journey. Mountaineers spend years training in pursuit of conquering Everest, but when they reach the top they stay there for hardly 10 minutes.
I have learnt…..This world is a temporary abode. There is nothing in here that is worth our tears.
I have learnt…..If a baby can sleep peacefully on your shoulder that means you are at peace with yourself.
I have learnt…… Life will never give you a test that you are incapable of winning.
I have learnt…..Not time, but inner peace and love heals all wounds. Time just helps you to temporarily forget them.
I have learnt…..If you yourself cannot be proud of your own achievements, no one will respect you.
I have learnt… When someone comes to me and says, “Thanks for your help”, it makes my day.
I have learnt…..To let go of bitterness or resentment is tough, but if you can do it, you have won one of the biggest battles of your life.
I have learnt…..When you are in love, it shows. If you have to put effort, then it is not worth it.
I have learnt….. Sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold and a heart to understand. (Andy Rooney)
