Life is not a predetermined and random series of events. It functions on your terms and the way you live it. I agree that there come times when you feel like being catapult into events and anxieties that you would have never thought of, but trust me when I say that all these realities contribute towards making us stronger. When a person reaches the stage of self-actualization, then there comes a time where you have to accept the fact that life and the universe was not so weird after all. The gist of life is to find a purpose for your existence. Viewed from an optimistic stand point, the harsh truths and realities of life have one sole purpose i.e. to make us powerful. You must keep fighting in order to find your purpose otherwise the purpose is going to find you. But in both of the cases, you are the one who is going to have the driving seat. With this in mind, let us take into account the 10 harsh realities of life that make us powerful and stronger.
10. Good People Come and Go
Through the course of your life at school, you might have met some good people and made some good friends. But in the end, most of them are going to leave you, not by choice but only because they have to. They are not going to be with you when you are going to get married. Not to worry, because at that time you might have made some more. The idea here is to lead a life and socialize in such a way that people should love to be in company with you.
9. The Element of Change
Doing the same activities every other day, is going to put a full stop on your road towards self-improvement and growth. So, keep your pursuit “on” for something new and different. If you plan to achieve something new in your life, then it is necessary that you do something new. You should be a person who loves to be propitious.
8. You Cannot Change the Past
You cannot go into the past and start a new beginning. The only way out is to start today. In simple words, you cannot change the events that took place in the past, but what you can change is your reaction to it and how you are going to react to similar events that are going to occur in the near future. Forget the past and strive for changing your future, if you are brave enough, which I hope you are.
7. Believe in the Third Law of Motion
Keeping action and reaction in mind, you should always remember that you are going to get the output on the levels of your input. In short, if you want success, then do something that will guarantee success. If you want to have some love, then you start giving love to others. Yes, it is hypothetical, but it is a reality of life which you should learn to follow.
6. Someone is always going to be better than you
Being envious is not going to do you any good. What you must learn is to live by the reality that there is always someone out there who is always better than you. So, try and not consider yourself as perfect, as tagging yourself perfect puts an end to self-improvement.
5. Make others “Value” You
Nobody is born successful or valuable. One of the best ways of getting success in your life is to make others “value” your presence. So, you must invest all your time in trying to generate some value for yourself. As soon as you are going to get highly valuable to the world, only then you are going to get successful.
4. We Cannot Control Everything
We cannot control death, but we can control is the way we die. Wasting your time behind pointless goals is going to do nothing for you and in the end you are going to die poor. But I am sure that is not going to happen to you, as you know your limits and potential. You know what is your limit? There is no limit.
3. No Tomorrow
You do not know that whether you are going to see Tomorrow. So why not fight for today, fight for your present and fight for your share of success from this selfish world. You are not going to get another chance as there is no such thing as reincarnation. You die, you die. So, fight today, rest tomorrow.
2. You Know Nothing
On the day we start believing that we have learnt everything, is the day when we stop living. The essence of human existence lies in the struggle for gathering new forms of knowledge and information. In simple words, you should not be the one who hates to accept new information.
1. Nothing Comes Easy
Everything is not as easy as most of you might come to think of them. There is a price which all of us are required to pay in order to get the most out of this life. Furthermore, some of us are forced to pay more than usual. So, be all-ready and loaded to take what is rightly yours.
