In a few hours I’ll officially be an adult and it’s safe to say I’ve learnt some incredible lessons in my short time on earth.
Here are some lessons I’ve learnt in my 21 years of existence.
1. You can have fun without putting yourself at risk (drinking and getting high). My definition of partying is having a relaxed time with friends and ..family, bowling, karaoke, movies, attending a game etc.
2. Life’s all about people, you need people to achieve your goal and aspirations.
3. people will treat you based on how you carry yourself.
4. There’s always time.
One of the most common phrases you hear people say is “there’s is no time” or I’m too busy. Do you know one thing you share in common with Barack Obama, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates , you have 24hrs a day.
5. There’s no such thing as time management, but there’s definitely something called self management.
how can u manage something you don’t have control of, life’s short:
24hrs a day,7days a week.
6. Friends are important, but some friends are for a season.
Don’t feel too bad when a friend leaves you or if you don’t feel too comfortable around an old friend. Like clothes we outgrow our friends when our beliefs and circumstances change. if a friend leaves it probably means both of you now have different beliefs.
7. Stop talking, start doing. The grave has the largest deposit of talents and ideas.
8. If you fail, try, try, and try again. Don’t let anyone or anything stop you from achieving something you believe in.
9. Christianity isn’t a set of do’s and don’ts that God wants you to obey, the bible contains principles that if followed will make your life so much better. Can you imagine a world in which we loved our neighbors as ourselves, there will be no wars, no crimes, no fraud only friends.
10. We would never comprehend God.
I find it very hilarious when scientists and clergy people debate whether God exists and how he operates.
A lot of times we try and explain God through our own understanding,
we assume he thinks and acts like us, the truth is we are his creation, just a figment of his imagination. Can clay understand the decisions of a potter, food the decision of the chef, painting the ingenuity of the artist?
11. Appreciate leaders.
It’s very easy to criticize leaders and spot out mistakes they make in their decisions. Have you ever wondered how difficult the job of a president, governor, religious leader, or father is?
leaders are humans like us, they have 24hours like we have, they have families, friends, hobbies and problems, yet they take the time out to take care of others.
