8 Harsh Truths that Will Improve Your Life

NOTE: The following is written by Glen Allsop. Glen writes on the subject of Personal Developmentat PluginID. His site’s main aim is to help people Plug into their Identity, be who they want to be, and live the life they want to live.
  1. Friends Come and Go: Friends will always come and go in your life. It can be a hard thing to accept, but many of the friends you spend time with now, might not be around in the next few years. Although friends come and go, you must remember that there are an abundance of amazing people out there for you to meet and build relationships with. If you don’t have many friends, don’t stress, there are literally billions of friendship possibilities. Go out there and make some new ones.
  2. You Won’t Always Get What You Want: You won’t always get what you want in life: people are going to be late, people will let you down, items you want won’t always be available, etc, etc. Don’t look for happiness in material possessions and if things don’t go your way, learn to accept them. Life’s too short to stay miserable.
  3. Many People Will Love You, but Many Will Not: There’s a lot of people that don’t like you. There are many possible reasons such as jealousy, similarities to them, or just not being someone’s ‘type’. While not everyone is always going to like you, and that’s fine. If people want to spend time talking about you then that is their problem. Your self-esteem doesn’t come from people.
  4. Nobody Can Transform Your Life Like You Can: The support and help of others can only take you so far, you’re going to have to do your own thing to make big changes in your life situation. The important thing is learning to stand on your own two feet. People you rely on won’t be around forever, and you don’t want to have to use others as a crutch to get anywhere in life.
  5. You Are Going to Fail: As the saying goes – “Only those who are asleep make no mistakes”. You can learn a lot from others, but it is your own failures that are going to teach you the most valuable lessons in life. Learn from your failures, embrace them, and use them to drive you on to success.
  6. Rain Will Sometimes Cancel Play: Don’t stress about the things that you can’t control. Learn to live with things that happen. You can’t change the past, but you can change how you react to things.
  7. There May Be No Tomorrow: Let’s face it, although we would all like to live till we are 70 years old, that’s certainly not always the case. There will be one day that is our last. Make the most of each day. Make sure the people you care about actually know it, don’t worry about little matters, just make sure you spend time doing the things you love.
  8. Someone Else Will Always Have More: The wanting of more actually holds a very important lesson… Just because someone has ‘more’, that doesn’t mean they are happy. Read the biography of any celebrity and they will tell you they enjoy their process of earning money, rather than what money can do to make them happy. In other words, focus on what you love, not what the thing you love can get you.

BONUS: Linking all the lessons here together is actually quite simple, and I can share the majority of what you need to know to enjoy life in a few simple bullet points:

  • Live life for the moment
  • Accept what is, even if things don’t go your way
  • Happiness is here, right now if you stop resisting and start accepting

What do you think?  Is he right? Wrong?  What would you change?

Interesting take for sure.
