Life is like a real row of events. These can be pleasant or unpleasant. Human’s main disadvantage is that we must face them both. Life is what it is! Nobody can live a perfect life – no matter how much money we have and no matter how much effort we put into it, the absolute perfection can never be achieved. Basically, mistakes can help you (if you get the good out of them) or they can perfectly ruin you (if you just go with the flow without even thinking it through). There are a bunch of mistakes which can ruin your life. What is most important is to know how to avoid them. The following ideas will help you figure out whether you’re on the right track or not.
1. Trusting friends, acquaintances or buddies can ruin your life.
Fully trusting people is a mistake. Those who’ve already been there know what I’m talking about…
If we’re talking about theories, somebody once said: “we live and we learn.” Yes! This is quite a good theory, but one should learn by looking around him, and not only at him…
Fully trusting others is something which you shouldn’t play with. This is proven for thousands of years now. There’s actually nothing else left to be proved.
2. Nowadays, excessive gentleness is a real vulnerability.
Nowadays gentleness is quite the mistake one can make. And God knows that there are a lot of people taking advantage of it. These people use their diabolical minds by fully exploiting the human vulnerability. They don’t have any resentments. They’re only hungry for cash. So take extra care of your soul. “cause otherwise, others will…
3. Fear of not trying stuff you haven’t done before can cost you big time…
A bad decision, made out of fear might be fatal. For instance, if you have to jump from the first floor, because the building is on fire, well jump then! Don’t think twice! Otherwise, you might not get your second chance…God forbid, your lungs can be damaged from the smoke or you can simply get hit by a beam in the head and this can definitely damage you for life.
Mistakes which can ruin your life are tons. In extreme cases you need to be agile. Let fear aside and think that in extreme situations the fear of not trying something (as in figuring out solutions) can truly affect you.
4. If you live your life by what other people say of think, you’re doing a huge mistake.
You need to know from the very beginning that not everybody surrounding you wants your best interest. Unfortunately, most of us learn from personal experiences. This is how we are! Until we don’t live it, we have no rest!
5. Lack of trust is a weakness which can ruin your life.
If you don’t trust yourself, this means that every time you’ll try to achieve something, you’ll get stuck at half of the road. Due to suspicion and self-discredit most of us end up broke. Self-distrust can ruin you.
6. If you believe that daily life is a competition between yourself and others, you’re wrong.
There’s no such thing as a competition. Contest or competition are things going on only in some people’s minds. For instance, if Pardalian’s neighbor has a huge house, decorated with all sorts of towers, what does this mean? That Pardalian needs to make an even more decorated house? It’s such a foolish thing to consider that this is how you’ll get places… Competition from the vain point of view, sooner or later, can destroy you.
7. If you think that alcohol is the solution, you’re heavily mistaken!
Drinking will only destroy you. Slowly, but surely! Like drugs do! Take a lot of care how you manage your issues. Drinking will, most certainly, not solve your problems!
In life, you’re bound to make mistakes. No matter how much attention you’ll pay, it’s quite impossible to make everything perfect. However, it’s good to know that before you, there were others who blew it big time – And they truly atoned for it! So why you should also go through this? Why not learn from other people’s life stories? Why shouldn’t their experiences be a source of inspiration for you? What is there to lose if, before doing something, you try to figure out what would be the best way to act?
Some of the mistakes that some people made left quite deep marks. These should seed questions for all those who have no idea what life is all about… Mature people’s experiences should represent a lesson for each of us. So open your mind, man! Make your own conclusions! Be smarter than others and learn, each day, from other people’s experiences.
