What are some of the dark lessons that life showed you?

    1 Never tell people 100%, tell them 70% about yourself, and 30% should be hidden.
    2 Anyone you love can die. Any time. Cherish them.

    3 Fairness is unnatural. Nothing is 100% fair.

    4 Live life the way you want to live it. Because even people who care for you can’t be with you every step of the way.

   5 People only want to hear the good, not the bad. So if you have issues, it’ll be hard to find people to confide in.

  Respect yourself, because people can see if you don’t.

 7 Everyone has a mask and they play different ones to different people. Lovers, families, coworkers…you’ll be surprised how different people can be in different social contexts.

 8 Some people are evil for the sake of it. IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT IF YOU END UP IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH THAT PERSON. GET OUT OF IT.

 10 It doesn’t matter how good your grades are, because grades aren’t everything and people pay more attention to your social skills. Grades only take you halfway.

  11 Once you hurt someone, they’re not likely to forget. They will always remember how much you’ve hurt them. One negligible action can have devastating consequences.

Relaxed attitude– he has that cool calm presence that shows he’s in control.

 Slow speech with a modulating tone- he doesn’t jump on conversation or shout to be heard. He speaks so you want to listen.

Doesn’t interrupt- he understands that he has all the time in the world to respond so why interrupt?
Always having an open body posture– he doesn’t lurk in a corner with an empty bottle of beer trying to look cool. He opens up and proclaims availability to everyone.

Maintains constant eye contact– like always. You’ll never see him feel intimidated by anyone.

Assertive and makes his opinions clear– he makes his opinions known to others but he doesn’t do it to offend.
Walks deliberately– he walks like he owns the whole planet. Ever seen Grant Cardone walk? Then you know what I mean.

Doesn’t try to please anyone– he doesn’t care whether you like him or not, abuse him or not. That’s your problem and not his. He is self sufficient and does only what he thinks is right.

Doesn’t hurry to respond to people– he is definitely not a people pleaser. When you call his name, he hears and turns around slowly.

Does what others fear to do– he has control over his emotions, though he may feel fear, he proceeds to act anyway.

    He smiles simply because he knows life is good.

Do you feel as if you are sleep-walking through life? Do you crave for some more freedom? Do you wish for some more adventure? Do you wish you simply had more time? Do you want to live your life to the fullest before it ends? If so, then this article is meant for you. There are so many people who go through with their lives, but never really experience what it has to offer. There’s one thing you need to understand – everything that holds you to a life not desired by you is in fact a prison that is created by your very own mind. Reading on, you will find ideas that you can put into practice for living your life to the fullest. Here are the 10 ways……….

1. Create your to-do list and begin checking things off:

You very well know that you’re going to die one day. But before that day arrives, make sure you have most of the items checked off. Experience the world as much as you can before you die.

2. Set your goals and write them down:

Set your goals by day, week, month and year periods. By writing them down, you will know exactly what is there to be achieved for every stretch of your life and will make you more likely to achieve them.

3. Don’t let other’s expectations pressurize you:

Never select a path in your life based solely on the expectations set upon you by others. Whether it’s your friends, parents or perhaps anyone in your society, don’t let their decisions influence you to change the path you have chosen.

4. Stop whining and complaining:

If there’s something going on in your life that you’re not happy about, don’t start complaining or fretting about it. Instead, you can opt for the better option of working actively to set things right.

5. It’s OK if you fail:

If you ever experience failure in your life, try not be bothered by it. Trying and failing is not a problem, but failing to try is. So never stop trying, and besides, failure is just the first phase of success.

6. Live with a positive mindset:

You can always make a big difference – once you stop underestimating your true potential. Approach every challenge in life with the thought “how am I going to achieve this?” rather than “what can I possibly do?”

7. Take care of your body and mind:

Eat healthy food whenever you can and sleep well at night. Exercise regularly because, after all, it is your body and mind with which you are going to achieve whatever you want in life.

8. Plan for the future, live in the present:

While it is important to plan for the future, it is equally important to live in the present. Don’t sacrifice today for tomorrow. Find out a way to enjoy your life while working towards better and bigger things.

9. Live your life consciously:

Don’t put your life on the auto-pilot mode. Always keep asking yourself “why am I doing this?” If plenty of days go by and you’re still searching for a reasonable answer, then it’s probably time for you to make a change.

10. Start overcoming your fears:

There will be times when your circumstances or personal flaws will hold you back from doing things you truly want to do. You will then have two choices – either accept your fears or face them. Which one will you go for?

Remember not to live your life as though you’re going to live forever. Hope these 10 insights were valuable. Take them seriously to ensure you won’t have to die while never having lived to the fullest.

Americans never stand too close or push anyone when standing in a queue. They always keep a smiling face while greeting strangers. They treat everyone around them nicely and maintain relationships with immigrants in such a way that they feel as if they were in their own country.

If every other nation starts taking some cue from America and adopt the qualities they possess, the world could be a much better place to live in. Think about it.
