The 5 Counterintuitive Values for a Good Life

  • TAKE RADICAL RESPONSIBILITY. No matter what happens in your life, you can always choose how to react. 
  • EMBRACE UNCERTAINTY. The only way to grow is to realize that your perspectives, knowledge, and even your values/beliefs aren’t absolute—they can always change or be proven wrong. 
  • FAIL FORWARD. You should go for process-oriented values, and how to handle pain and fear to keep moving forward.
  • GET COMFORTABLE WITH REJECTION. Learning to say and hear “no” 
  • CONTEMPLATE YOUR MORTALITY. Thinking deeply about death helps us to put our adversities in context and to appreciate life.
