If you had one wish, what would it be and why?
If i had such rare opportunity to make a wish, guess what i would wish for?
Nope!! I won’t wish for ice cream or cake!
I won’t wish for more clothes or more clients. Even though I would like that very much!
I’d wish for the opportunity to learn all the important life lessons sooner than later!
And the ability to apply these lessons as and when needed. This is the definition of wisdom!!
So let’s just say I would wish for wisdom, just like King Solomon.
All my life I have been learning from the school of hard knocks and I can tell you in plain terms, it is not a pleasant place to be!! sadly, that’s where most of us learn our life lessons.
Most of the problems people face in life, and most of the failures we experience are internal, only a handful are traceable to external factors.
There are some lessons we learn a little too late, things that if we had started to put into practice earlier would have helped us achieve much more success and live more fulfilling lives. There’s good news though, we still have the opportunity to make things right. Let’s take a look at some crucial Lessons people learn too late in life, and hopefully get ahead of the course and start applying them in our lives.
3 Crucial Lessons people learn too late in life!
1. Time is more valuable than money: Money runs this world little attention is given to anything else apart from making money and meeting needs. But as I grow older I’m becoming more aware that money is not the ultimate, time is! Time is life, and without life, there’s no hope of getting money. Money can be acquired, but time lost can never be regained. There are times when I wish I could go back in time to fix some things in my past and make some changes that would improve my future, but alas!! that’s a luxury that I can’t afford. The earlier one realizes the value of time, the better!!
2. Your Network is Your Networth: be mindful of the people you allow into your circle because the people in your life can make or mar you! I used to be so careless about my network but I’m learning that- that’s a horrible mistake. Having the right network is very valuable, the more people you know, and the more influential they are, the quicker you are likely to succeed. However, if you associate with the wrong company, you’ll never get ahead with anything. I have never really taken networking seriously mostly because I’m a DIY kind of person, but I’m learning to place more value on people and relationships.
3. Most of the good things in Life come with a price tag: Every good thing you want to achieve in life requires some form of work and effort. The problem is, most people don’t want to pay the price. Fame and fortune cannot be wished into existence, I wish that was the case.
Most good things in life form sacrifice. Even your personal growth requires investment, networking, and a whole lot of work.
