If you know what you want to do with your life, you can make wise decisions. Almost all of us have millions of regrets when we look back at our lives. We all wish we knew a few things earlier so that we could make better choices. Here is a list of some harsh truths of life that have to be takes into consideration:
You can never really be perfect
Those who always wait for that one day when they can be have a perfect self, a perfect job, a perfect house or a perfect life get disappointed eventually. You can never really be perfect. What you have is here and now. There is no tomorrow, which actually brings only happiness. Live in the moment and give your best to everything you do in your life.
Comfort kills your dream
If you chose to live a comfortable life today, you may have to struggle all your life. Those who make achievements in life sacrifice their comfort. Work hard until you realize your dreams. It may give you an uneasy feeling in the beginning but as soon as you get used to it you start enjoying it.
You are what you chose to be
You make good or bad choices during the course of achieving your goals and theses choices eventually make you. Make your choices wisely and learn to live with the consequences. Chose to come out of your comfort zone only then you can set standards of success. Something that comes easy to you can hardly make you a winner.
Knowledge is not everything
No doubt, you are always well aware of all the ingredients of success. You can even write a book on it. It takes consistency, hard work and a positive attitude towards life to be successful. How many of us actually implement the rule in our own life? Knowledge actually has no value if you do not make a effective use of that knowledge.
Failures are necessary
A few people in the world have achieved success in their first attempt. All have to face failures and rejections before they actually are capable of realizing their dreams. Failures make you wiser. A failure is a reality check and the first step to success in life.
You learn by your own experience
No one else can ever warn or teach you with his/her own experiences. You have to learn things with firsthand experience. Look ahead in life and be ready to face your biggest fears since only then you can realize your strengths.
Success always comes at a price
All those who get successful in life have to pay a price for it. You can never expect to get an inch closer to success if you do not pay the price. Start your day early and follow a perfect routine of work if you wish to get successful in life. You cannot claim to work hard all day long if you do not feel deadly exhausted when you go to sleep. Each day, each minute and each moment counts in life.
Problems are inevitable
When you face problems in your life, you must know that now you are making a progress in life. Successful people have to overcome many troubles in their lives to attain success eventually. There is hardly any success story that has no place for troubles in it.
Negative attitude can never give you a positive life
Every time you think negative your success moves away from you. You cannot put in your best efforts when you have a negative frame of mind, which means no success. Keep yourself positive and see your corner of world changing day in day out.
Having no regrets at the end of the day is the biggest achievement of human life. You live a complete life when you learn to look ahead and believe that you have the strength to turn your dreams into reality.
