What is a simple truth? Well, it is the foundation of pure happiness and success in life. Here are some simple truths about life to remember:
It is unlikely, most times, that we can easily distinguish our real destiny from a wrong choice. We will always succeed and fail at normal intervals, it’s what makes us multi-faceted human beings. It is possible, however, to focus on the states of internal joy and satisfaction in the moments we live here and now. This helps us retain positive memories and reinforce more simple truths about life.
Observing happy people, who bring peace and harmony wherever they go, brings to mind thoughts of several conventional “rules” that allow such people to stay happy even in the rather ordinary days of their lives. This is a simple knowledge that can help you dramatically change your life.
Here are some simple truths about life to remember every day:
1. The people we meet are important
Any person that crosses our path is a teacher, whether good or bad. The first task is to start and end the meeting with them in joy if possible. Only then we can immediately or subsequently make sense of the moments spent together and gain invaluable experience and new knowledge about ourselves and the world.
People are important, and they will leave many imprints on our lives which will continue to form the way we think.
A lack of action breeds doubt, fear and degradation. If we want to achieve something, we should work hard to do so. You will achieve nothing as long as you reflect on your destination without taking real steps to make your dreams come true.
Taking action is simple, whether you are truly successful or not, it’s still a step forward.
3. We determine our own destiny
These are not abstract words but a way of life and thinking. In every moment of your life, as a conscious person, you are thinking and expressing an attitude to the events you experience. If what you are thinking does not lead you to development, does not bring you happiness, does not contribute to the improvement of the world, or simply makes you feel sad – get rid of these thoughts.
Of course, many people might say “I can’t give up thinking of …” and will be right. But if you learn to control your emotions and thoughts, the result will be stunning. Regularly asked questions such as: “Why am I doing this? What will the consequences be?” not only increase the number and quality of your life’s victories but also make your positive thoughts come true.
4. Everything we say, do, and think is a message
Imagine if every thought was a task, or a kind of work plan. If your head is a mess of disjointed images and ideas, will it be easy to sort this mess out and fulfill a task the way you need? It is simply impossible because, in essence, you don’t know what you want!
In this case, goal setting helps. Another option is to reward yourself for any achievement or announce your intentions to your friends and acquaintances.
Note that it is very important to clearly articulate your goals. Thus they will become a reality much faster.
5. Spend your time on what you like
Say yes to what you love doing. Complement your work with elements of hobby. This attitude almost always leads to success.
Money has never been sufficient motivation for a long time. Even if you do not succeed in something, you will be happy doing what you love after the effort is made.
6. Failure is an experience
Forget the words sin, failure, disappointment, and mistake. They all are experiences. Be open to all opportunities in any situation because sometimes they come from negative experiences.
To get some inspiration, watch the wonderful movie Yes Man (2008).
7. Take reasonable risks
Do not try to be perfect. If there are doubts and fears, allow yourself to let them go and take a step towards new discoveries and people.
Remember that risk is reasonable when the positive effects outweigh the costs. If you never risk anything, you will never unleash your full potential.
Simple truths are keys
We often forget how important simple truths really are. They are uncomplicated keys to your future and happiness. Never forget to utilize these truths to be the best possible version of you! You will then be a gift to yourself, as well as others around you.
