21-things-you-need-to-know-in-lifeThere are a lot of things you need to know about life, dear reader. In fact, there are far too many for a single blog post, of course. So today, let’s just focus on 21 things that I think are important.

So, I offer you 21 quotes that I think reflect those things you definitely need to know about life.

I hope you find them useful and interesting.

And please feel free to share them.

Things You Need To Know In Life (1-11):

  1. You don’t decide your future. You make choices and your choices decide your future. So you’d better learn to make good choices.
  2. Falling down happens to everyone. Staying down is the problem. So get up, dust yourself off, and try again.
  3. Success is enjoying what you do, whilst having sufficient money to live your preferred lifestyle comfortably.
  4. Remaining loyal to the circumstances into which you were born is not a noble act. It’s perfectly reasonable to want more from life. Just because you were born poor doesn’t mean you have to remain poor.
  5. If the world is to be a better place then we should focus on that which we have in common, not that which separates us.
  6. As long as we’re not hurting anyone else, how we choose to live our lives is no one’s business but our own.
  7. There’s no such thing as easy money. Any suggestion to the contrary will be a scam and you’ll get burned if you’re unwise enough to get involved.
  8. If something cannot be subjected to scrutiny and criticism then it’s probably not a good idea in the first place.
  9. Never believe that you cannot be fooled, because we can all be a little gullible, occasionally. That’s what scammers rely on. So, be on your guard.
  10. If your job can be done from anywhere, then someone anywhere can do your job? So, when companies are looking to save money, to increase their profits, what do you think they’ll do?
  11. We have to deal with life as it is and not how we like it to be. We must protect ourselves and our interests because no one else will do it for us.

Things You Need To Know In Life (12 – 21):

  1. Get to know and be inspired by people who fit the future you want. Don’t allow those from your past to limit your ambition.
  2. If we view the world through the prism of media headlines, it can only ever be a depressing place. Avoid the media and suddenly everything seems much brighter.
  3. With gambling, there’s only one winner consistently and that’s the casino. That’s why they’re in business.
  4. A promotion at work is not a reward for what you’ve done in the past it’s the opportunity to show what you can do in the future.
  5. If we don’t expect much from people then we won’t get much from people. Low expectations lead to poor results. Expect more to get more. Leadership is about getting the best out of people, not going soft on them.
  6. We’ll keep making the same mistake until we learn the lesson the mistake was intended to teach us. Life’s a classroom and the lessons never stop.
  7. Your years on this earth will teach you far more than you could possibly learn in any university or college of further education.
  8. If you’re with the wrong person, the sooner you let them go, the sooner you’ll have a chance of finding the right person.
  9. It matters not that you are rich, famous and important. What matters is how you treat other people, especially those who can do nothing for you.
  10. Celebrity pronouncements via social media might look like they’re sharing insight into their lives. They’re not. They’re simply promoting their brand and whatever it is they’re selling. Their aim is to carefully construct a hip and edgy image. In short, it’s fake.
