If you fall in life, get back up!

Failure lies not in falling down. Failure lies in not getting up.

– Chinese proverb

You always have the choice and chance to get back up after failing or falling in life. If you choose not to pick yourself up after a fall, then you will never succeed. If you don’t fall or fail in life, then you are not trying hard enough. Keep pushing on!

What is your purpose in life?

“True happiness is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.”

~ Helen Keller (1880-1968) American Writer

Do you have a worthy purpose in life? If not, then find one and do the best you can to obtain it. Having a worthy purpose in life gives you so much more to live for.

Talk less; listen more.

“I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.”

~ Ernest Hemingway

We are born with two ears and one mouth, therefore, we should try to listen twice as much as we speak. If you can do this, you will learn so much more in life and you won’t interrupt people while they are talking in the process.

How to fully enjoy life and love

The person who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.

– Chinese proverb

In the same way you climb the world’s tallest mountain, step-by-step, is the same way you should approach life and love. The journey or task is never easy, so take your time to make the right steps to achieve your final goal. If you hurry life and love, you will surely fail because you must learn how to walk before you can run. Take your time in life and enjoy the beauty along the way…you’ll be glad you did.

Life’s stepping stones

“Life is the art of drawing without an eraser.”

~ John W. Gardner

In life, we are not born with a road map or instructions on how to best live our life. In fact, most of it is accomplished by trial and error whereby we takes steps for the very first time not knowing the outcome. If we make mistakes or missteps, we cannot erase them. So, we must think twice before we take a step somewhere that we are not familiar with. While thinking, be sure and listen to your heart carefully and clearly for an answer from the spirit within you.

Today is all we ever have in life!

“The most important time in life is the present.”

~Ahsan

Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can/should do today. If you are having a fight with a friend, then apologize to them today. If you haven’t contacted your parents or relatives in a while, then do it today.  If you like someone and want to meet them, then tell them today. Today is when everything that needs to be done gets done. Tomorrow gives us hope for a better today while today is doing what you need to do for tomorrow.
