1. We grow by making mistakes.
Life is not always rainbows and unicorns. You’re going to stumble and fall in your pursuit to create the life you desire.
But making mistakes is how we learn and grow.
If you never experience failure, you’ll be stuck in your comfort zone forever. And, unless you’re a hermit, staying indoors alone in your mom’s basement is just plain boring.
If you want to live a fulfilling life, embrace the inevitable bumps in the road. They are the steppingstones you need on your path to living your best life.
2. You’ll get what you’ll put up with.
Are you stuck in a job that makes you want to pull out your hair? Is your relationship more of a nightmare than a fairytale?
Well, I hate to break it to you, but you’re getting exactly what you’ll put up with. Your life will never be better than the level of tolerance you set for yourself.
So, if you’re willing to put up with subpar treatment from your friends or partner, don’t be surprised when that’s what you get. If you want to improve your life, raise your standards.
What you’ll discover is when you raise your standard, your life becomes happier and more fulfilling.
This one simple wisdom tip will help you live a truly exceptional life.
3. An exceptional life takes resilience
We’ve all heard stories about someone who got lucky or was born talented (or both) and succeeded. You might even know a person or two like this.
But let’s face it. We don’t choose our innate abilities and good fortune can be as elusive as Bigfoot.
However, with resilience up your sleeve, you’re nearly undefeatable. I mean, how can you fail when, like Rocky, you’re always standing back up after you get knocked down?
Success is basically inevitable at that point, right?
So, keep being resilient. It will propel you toward living a remarkable life!
4. Before speaking, pause and think.
Think before you speak. Doing this will one thing help you live a happier and much less stressful life.
It’s also one I wished I would have been better at earlier in much in my life.
Resist the urge to unleash verbal tirade on the person who upsets you. Take a moment to take a breath and gather your thoughts before you speak.
If you use this suggestion, it will help you keep you from putting your foot in your mouth. It will also prevent a lot of bad feelings.
Trust me, you’re taking a small pause for a giant leap in avoiding unnecessary drama. Of all the many pearls of wisdom I’m sharing with you today, this one simple wisdom trick can save you years of sorrow and regret.
5. Life is (too) short
Life can feel shorter than a Vine video, so don’t waste it worrying about impressing others or looking like a goofball. When you’re six feet under, you won’t be thinking about how many Instagram likes your “friends” gave you about your newest whatever.
Other people’s opinions aren’t going to do anything for your life. Toss those pointless worries out the window and start living your best life today.
I can almost guarantee you, living an exceptional life has nothing to do with most of those Instagram “friends” opinions.
This leads to our next simple wisdom tip.
6. Focus on what you can do
This goes hand in hand with number 5. If you’re like a lot of people you’re worried about what everyone thinks. You want to impress others.
The reality is most people are spending so much time worrying about themselves that they aren’t focusing on you at all. I hate to creak it to you but they just don’t care that much about you.
If you want to live a rich and successful life, focus on what you want in life and go after it with all you’ve got. Commit to keeping your favorite memories and the people you love in your heart.
Live your life for you and the people you love.
7. You can’t do it all yourself
It is important to recognize that no one can achieve success by themselves. Even the most successful people rely on the support and guidance of others at times.
Although it can be challenging to work with others, it is simply not possible to accomplish remarkable things without help.
Be discerning about who you allow into your life, but also be open to collaboration. Learn to accept the help that these people bring your way.
8. Doing the same thing over and over again will always get you the same results.
Persistently repeating the same action leads to a predictable outcome. It’s always the same one you got the last time you tried.
So get over it!
To live an exceptional life, you need to pay attention to life’s feedback. If your initial attempt didn’t result in success, you’ve got to try something new.
Diversifying your modus operandi will give you different outcomes. This is how you create new opportunities and a truly exceptional life
If the outcome isn’t satisfactory, you’ve got to adjust your approach accordingly.
The feedback you get will lead you to success if you let it.
9. A simple wisdom tip we all should take to heart is always speak the truth.
The easiest way to avoid a whole lot of drama is to always tell the truth.
It might be tempting to fib your way out of a sticky situation, but let’s be real, lying is like putting a band-aid on a broken leg. Eventually, the truth will come out and you’ll end up looking like a fool – or worse.
When you lie, you’re basically tossing your credibility out the window. Do yourself a favor and embrace honesty.
Honesty will always lead you down the path to living an exceptional life.
10. To live an exceptional life you need to control your attitude.
Want to live an extraordinary life? It starts with attitude control.
Don’t be fooled. The people and circumstances around you have no say in how you feel. You’re the boss of your feelings.
Don’t blame others for your emotional chaos. It’s all about you!
Why not choose to feel awesome?
