Smart Life Lessons to Know Right Now

By Sandy Schroeder

Sometimes we have to learn things the hard way. But other times, we might learn important life lessons by watching others, or reading their stories.

Lifehack suggests a few key lessons to know right now.

Live in the Present

If we obsess over the past or worry about the future, we might miss what is happening right now. How many people do you know who do this too often? All of the happiness and satisfaction that is waiting to happen right now might never be claimed. The present moment is really all we have control over. So why not go for it and make the most of it!

Skip the Word “Should”

Too many times we allow thoughts and opinions of others to decide what we do. We may feel we should make more money, or spend more time with our kids, or choose a better place to live. You are the one putting forth the effort. So consider the key questions and try to make the best decisions based on what you know and want. At the same time, don’t try to impose your opinions on others.

Learn to Win Out Over Fears

As children we may be afraid of the dark, or spiders. As we grow up we learn to let these fears go. But we may acquire new ones as adults that are equally challenging. Whatever you fear, write it down. Then go back, and write down your thoughts about that fear. Finally, think about ways to confront the fear. Gradually, as you face the fears you have, you may realize you know how to conquer them.

Learn How to Build Successes

Frequently we find ourselves looking for instant achievements. But if we look closer we may see the real successes take time, energy and commitment. Very few happen overnight. List your goals and list the steps needed to make them happen. Then just keep working.

Never Assume What Others Think

In a busy world it is easy to leap to conclusions.  A casual remark or quick email may be just that. If you assume you know what the other person is thinking, you may be way off base. Watch for patterns of comments, or simply ask to find out what others are thinking.
