Life Lessons – 10 Ideas That Will Help You Understand the Mechanics of Life

Life is not easy.

We are all evolved primates that occupy a massive planet.

We possess only abstract ideas on why we ended up here.

However, we are primates that constantly evolve. And it is through this evolution that we can improve our living conditions.

Through constant...

1. Find the perfect balance between theory and practice

Once you decide what you want to pursue, embrace the fact that knowledge never ends. Create a strict schedule that “forces” you to read blogs, books, and websites relevant to the area you want to focus on.

When I decided to embark on my blogging journey, I started reading literally everythi...

2. Diversity is golden – always have an exit strategy

Most of us live our lives totally reliant upon forces that dictate our success or failure. This “attitude” unfortunately contradicts to the antifragility argument raised by the great Nassim Taleb.

We need to be ready to face adversity and unpredicted events. In order to do that we need to p...

Life Lessons – 3. Networking is the ace under your sleeve

If you introduce John to Steve and then Steve manages to help John in any way then you made a great connection. Think of this event as another string in the tight network you are constantly trying to build. This network is like a bonus in your video game called life that will eventually help you ...

4. Understand that people love free goods

Expanding from the above point, we all need to understand that building a network has never been an easy thing. Nobody wants to help for free. When you embrace this idea, internalize it and always have something to offer. Tangible or intangible, it doesn’t really matter. You can give away anythin...

5. Never say a bad word about anyone

Don’t betray anyone. Don’t backstab anyone. Don’t step on anyone’s toes. Don’t gossip.

 All these behaviours imply a scarcity mentality and won’t help you get far. You know how they say that you are what you eat? By the same token, you attract what you are. If you want success and abundance...

6. Ignore ill-intentioned criticism

I like writing because it helps me discover myself and dive deep into complex topics. And you know what I discovered recently? That once you care too much about what other people think, you lost the game. I’ll support my point with an example. Check out this video of 2 cute babies talking to each...

7. You are your own personal brand

Whether you are an entrepreneur, a doctor, a lawyer, a young professional, a college student, or you are sitting at home in your sweatpants dreaming of getting that perfect job, you are a brand. Give me a second to illustrate my point.

I know that, normally, when people hear the word brand ...

8. Create your own luck

Luck? What is luck? Can you please define it for me? According to www.oxforddictionaries.com, luck is defined as follows:

Success or failure apparently brought by chance rather than through one’s own actions.

I always hated vague terms. Terms that are defined by intuition rather than ...

9. Make risk your partner in crime

Risk is an instance that involves exposure to dangerous situations. It is this fragile factor that can bring you from the bottom to the top and vice versa. It is the partner you really want in your life but you are afraid that will cause trouble anytime.

10. Take responsibility for your failures, be honest, be patient

People will respect you if you know how to succeed, but at the same time, they will respect you if you know how to fail. Be strategic when it comes to failure. Learn from your mistakes and capitalize on the lessons you learned.

Furthermore, in order to make this idea a practice, you need to...

CONCLUSION

I know that I was a bit straightforward and assertive in this article. I know that I have evoked mixed feelings. But I also know that these feelings were hidden deep inside you and for various reasons you were suppressing them and weren’t helping them emerge.

Trust me, it is good that these...
