Difference between school and life: school teaches you lessons and then gives you a test. Life gives you a test and you learn the lessons. Hate it or love it, that’s how it is. Life is the ultimate teacher. Instead of learning all of them the hard way, let’s be prepared for the lemons.
Here are 11 things you must experience in your life:
1. The feeling of being lucky
Sometimes, you’ll be doing the right things at the right moment, without even realizing it.
2. The helplessness of falling in love
It may not be requited, but make sure you fall.
3. The pain of losing something or someone
You realize that pain and joy go hand in hand.
4. Surviving with very less money
You may be broke at some point of your life. And that’s alright.
5. That bad people will rise in front of your eyes & never get caught
It’s the delusion that life should be fair that keeps us away from admitting that life can be unfair too.
6. Success and Fame
Realize that success is not built on success. It’s built on failure and frustration.
7. Being hated
If a few people hate you, you’re doing something right.
8. Experience loneliness
At times, there’ll be no one by your side. And you’ll come out of it as a stronger person.
9. The shock of betrayal
Your trust will be broken. But that doesn’t mean you’ll stop trusting people.
10. The big lesson of failure
11. And finally, rising above your fears
You’ve got only 3 choices in life: Give up, give in or give it all you’ve got.
