20 Life Lessons on living a Good Life

marcus-aurelius-quote-lg

Here’s a list of 20 things that I have learned in life and would like to share with the rest of humanity:

  1. Spend money on experiences instead of things.
  2. Having fun in life is unarguably important in life, so pull pranks on people you love. But remember, every time you pull a prank on someone, you should expect one in return.
  3. Learn the difference between knowing when it’s appropriate to laugh at yourself and when it’s time to take yourself seriously.
  4. Avoid cigarettes – kids don’t like the smell.
  5. Write a book. To start, create 3 folders (on your computer, filing cabinet, etc) consisting of personal stories, lessons, and favorite quotes and eventually you can turn this into a book about your life.
  6. Enjoy every moment of life – we’re only here for a blink of an eye. (You’re officially 75 seconds older than you were when you first started reading this list.)
  7. Hearing the comment, “You’ve changed” is a compliment as long as you continually improve yourself.
  8. Remember that life is harder on you than any one person will ever be. It has no sorrow or patience for tough times.
  9. Understand that God puts a Goliath in your life to bring out the David within you.
  10. Eat caviar every once in a while. Especially the kind from the Caspian Sea.
  11. Seek clarity. Don’t compromise your core beliefs because clarity comes from doing what you believe in.
  12. Everyone enjoys rebelling every once in a while. Just be sure you are being a rebel with a cause instead of a rebel without a cause.
  13. Don’t compare yourself to anyone else. Compete against your own personal prior best.
  14. Add your own signature to the world and do not “keep up with the Joneses” – ignore those Joneses!
  15. The 3 hardest things to find in life are: a life-long spouse, a life-long friend, and a life-long passion. When you do find them, do whatever you can to keep them.
  16. Keep it old school by writing personal letters to people instead of using text or social media.
  17. When you read a good book, send it to 10 people you know who could benefit from it.
  18. If you think you’re lazy at times it’s because your life is boring. Instead of getting upset about it, find a cause to fight for that’ll bring the best out of you. Napoleon once said: “A lack of energy comes when we have taken on less that we are capable of.”
  19. Learn to take time-outs in life.
  20. Trust in a higher law that is always with you.
