Very few exist who are so happy with their lives that they do not with to change anything. Most of us are trying to change our lives and the hustle is on. If you truly want to change your life, then here are 15 things that you must equip your understanding with. These things will change your life and attitude forever.
1.We are all born geniuses but life de-geniuses us.
We all have our own set of talents within us. It is because of the constant judgments and lack of being in the right platform that we begin to identify ourselves as unworthy.
2. Treat everyone with dignity and respect.
Everyone that is alive or dead deserves respect. Differentiating people on the basis of their sex, caste, creed, religion or profession is absolutely stupid and speaks a lot about you as a person.
“I speak to everyone in the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university.”
3. We are all ONE.
We are all born in different environments and we all are dealing with various circumstances. You cannot understand my pain and I may not understand yours but being disillusioned and restricting yourself from treating everyone equally is nothing less than a sin. We are all one and we must embrace that.
4. Imagination is more important than knowledge
Every single thing that we see around was was created through imagination. Somebody imagined it at first and then it took a physical form. Imagination has the power to transform the world. This is why it is considered to be the most important aspect of learning and growing. It holds more importance than knowledge because knowledge is limited whereas imagination can extend limitlessly.
5. Solitude can be delightful to a mature person
Solitude is enlightening. Little do we understand the gravity of solitude when we are young. When we mature, we realize that it is delightful and stimulates creativity in our minds. Some people may think it to be painful and gloomy but as our intellects ripen we start acknowledging it as a blessing.
6. Do what you feel in your heart to be right. You’ll be criticized anyway.
All the legends across the world have dealt with severe criticism and opposition. Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without battling the minds that constantly remind you that you can’t do it. You must listen to what your heart says. There is only one life and it should not be spend on somebody else’s terms and conditions. Be a great spirit and follow what your heart says.
7. The most beautiful thing we can experience in life is the mysterious.
The derivation of art is through mystery. It is a beautiful experience that keeps your mind in awe of fantasies. This is the reason why fairy tales are the most engaging categories of books. The delusional world is a source of talent and imagination and can pause you to wonder.
8. Religion and science should work together not against each other.
How do you think can science work without having faith in the orderliness of the universe? It is not possible. Science and religion has to work concurrently, else it is unconvincing.
9. Seek value over success.
Work hard to represent an idea and not to be successful. Striving for success often makes people to lose out on their value. Success when gets to the head of a man, he becomes stupid. This is why we must not work towards victory but to be of value.
10. Mistakes are a sign of growth and progress.
If you are making mistakes, give yourself a tap on the back because it means you are trying. A person who is afraid of making mistakes never learns anything new and puts a dead end to the process of progress. Exploring yourself to various opportunities will make you a self-aware plus mature person.
11. Make no man/woman your idol.
This is a persistent problem in the world. We are constantly told to idolize someone and work towards our goals. Everyone who has achieved success or has been party to something inspiring deserves respect but no one should be idolized.
12. Life is all about being of service.
You did not walk into this life to accomplish things only for yourself. The value of a man is determined by seeing what he gives to people around him. A life is only worth living when you can be at service for others.
13. Never stop learning.
One should never stop acquiring no matter how far he has reached in his life. Learning is a process that begins at birth and should only end at death.
14. Never stop questioning.
Curiosity is the mother of all inventions. We all have heard this quote. The reason why it exists is because without being inquisitive things shall become shallow and world will not witness any profound growth. Hence, keep questioning without the fear of judgments.
15. Take matters in your own hands.
The magnitude of an action is often underestimated. All major changes in the history took place because somebody took an action. If you do nothing about things that bother you, you should not expect any change as well.
It is significantly important to understand that if you are aiming to change your life, you must first change your attitude and perception of it.
