The one thing that a man can never stop is Time. Time goes by no matter where we are, what we do, which birthday are we celebrating and etc. As time goes by, so does life; and the one sentence we have heard thousands of times is – Life is short. Well it kind of is.
Seconds go by on the clock with the same tick as always. They cannot speed up or slow down whenever we won’t. The second now is passing the same way it did yesterday and it will pass the same way tomorrow. What makes it a fast or slow second is the very thing we are doing at that moment. Waiting for the coffee machine to make the morning coffee will seem to us like ages, but having a coffee with friend and talk will make the time go by in an instant; Einstein’s Theory, right?
1. Stay true to yourself !
The most important thing in our life is our selves. Every human individual on this planet has been given the gift of live and everything that goes with it, including the individual right to choose what to eat, what to drink, which sport to take on to, what to study and etc. The chance to make your own choice about things in life is one of the most important thing .
Staying true to once self and going after the goals in life is an important thing. For instance, if someone wants to be kitchen chef, he or she should do everything in their power to make that happen. Very often in life, dreams are discovered at an early stage and soon after that discovery; their realization starts to take its trip. If you ask the world’s most famous chefs, they will tell you that their love for food and cooking has been with them since they were little children.
Obstacles will appear along the way, but the struggle to defeat them is what makes a man great in what he is doing.
2. Devote more to life than to your job !
We should devote our selves to what we do for living; we should cherish every moment in working what we love to do. There are tons of actors , movie directors, musicians, singers, artists and etc. that will tell you they don’t need a hobby in their lives because they are doing what they love to do. Hobbies exist so that an individual can relax every once in while with a creative activity which has nothing to do with the everyday job. That is true – why do you need a hobby to relax since the job you get paid to do relaxes your entire spirit.
However, things in life don’t have to circle around one thing, especially if that thing is your job. The entire planet on which we as humans live in offers thousands and thousands of things to see, things to do and people to meet. There are numerous ways to enjoy the moments off work with a simple walk in the park, hike in the mountains, skydive form an airplane and etc. Spending most of the time at work will, and claim to enjoy every minute of it, eventually burst into an urge to go anywhere else but the office.
3. Have the courage to express your feelings !
Don’t be afraid to express what you feel and what you think. Many times people wind up at a dead end in their carriers and lives just because they didn’t said what had to be said at the right time. Silence is gold, we’ve heard this a thousand times, but it is not always true.
Keeping your mouth shut most of the time will prove you wrong. You have to fight for what you think is right; you have to express your feelings and thoughts when you know you are 100% right. Otherwise somebody else will “run you over” and then it will be too late.
4. Maintain contact with your friends !
“It is not what you know, but who you know”. Over the years a human being meets and creates thousands of friendships. Some of them last forever, some for a brief moment in time and some last only for “business” not “pleasure”. When the time comes to live on your own, the time for spending with friends is lowered to a minimum. People can hardly find the time to have a coffee with school or a college friend. Even if you can have a coffee with a friend for an hour in one week, do it.
Maintaining contact with friends is always beneficial. A lot of people maintain their contacts with friends with the tendency to use him for something in the future. For instance, some people maintain contact with their friends from a different city because they are doctors or lawyers, and one day they might come in handy.
Certain friendships exist because the members inside simply enjoy having them around for good and bad. Friends help each other when they can and how they can.
5. Afford more satisfaction in your life !
As previously said, life is short, and it will become shorter if all its time is spend in the office. An important thing in life is to dedicate time to you as much as possible. Go to the museum, by tickets to the opera, go to the movies, do a bungee jumping off a bridge, take cooking lessons, enroll in a sky-diving course, learn how to drive a plane, do yoga classes and etc.
To make things in our life more interesting, make a bucket list. A bucket list is a list of things to do before leaving this world. But a bucket list doesn’t have to go to that limit. Make a bucket list of things to do before you turn 30, before turning 40 or before turning 50. When making the list, you’ll notice that there have been many things you want to do all along.
People spend their lifetime overreacting about small problems in life. If you devote all your energy to every small detail, every small problem, then there will be nothing left to give out in your spare time. When free time comes, instead of spending it relaxing, you’ll end up figuring out how to solve all the little problems.
Don’t pay attention to small problems. Many times they mean absolutely nothing or when they do, they tend to solve themselves over time. Every one of us has reached a point in life when we look back in time and think of why we spent time stressing about simple things.
Afford more satisfaction in your life and let no small problem ruin your sunshine.
