This is a simple read to make you remember the beautiful truth about life. A quick “Pick me up” when your day is flat, or things have gone sour.

Remember these beautiful truths about life before you give up.


1. You get one shot

There’s no restart button. You can’t undo the past. All you can do is keep trying because the one single shot you get at life doesn’t last forever.

This is why you shouldn’t worry when you get rejected or fail. All of us are only getting one shot at this life so we may as well try something different.

The moment you realize that life doesn’t last forever, you’ll quit feeling sorry for yourself and get on with the show.


2. The answers are right in front of you.

Most of the time people fall for the delusion that they’re missing some knowledge or some hack or some strategy. You’re not.

The answers you need come through experience and you already know most of the solutions to your problems. The challenge is that while you know the solutions, you haven’t consciously accepted them

The solutions are sitting stored away in your head and until you do some deep reflection, take a break and chill out, the answers won’t come to you.

Rest assured you do have the answers inside of you already whether you’ve begun to realize that or not.


3. Video is not the answer. Words are.

Words can be spoken, written or said in front of a live audience. The medium doesn’t matter — only the words you deliver do.

Words can do most of the talking for you. What you achieve, who you fall in love with and the company you work for are all results that come from your words.

Respect words.
Learn words.
Use words.

Most of all, don’t underestimate the written word.


4. Your career doesn’t define you.

We’re more than our careers. Anyone who judges you solely because of the work you do is missing the point.

Who you are and how you treat people will always matter more than your career.

It’s tempting to judge someone because of the work they do or how much money they make. When you’re dead, no one remembers that. Peopleremember who you are and how you make them feel.


5. We can all become our favorite hero.

Please don’t spend your whole life worshipping heroes. Whatever your favorite hero did, you can do as well. There’s nothing you’re missing that will stop you from achieving anything.

Most of your heroes have come from the darkest places and endured the toughest of challenges — that’s probably why they’re your hero!


6. One single person (like you) can change the world.

Change always starts with a single person.

You have a voice and that’s all you need to start change. Change takes times though. If you bunker down and dedicate yourself to change for a few years, you too can change the world.

It took me around three years to start making an impact and it happened a lot quicker than I expected.

Most people that change the world never start out thinking that they will do exactly that.

Seek out change and use your voice.


7. There’s no one else like you.

That’s why you can quit comparing yourself to everyone else. You’re uniquely you and that’s what we all love about you.

Life’s not about living the same exact dream as our favorite influencer.

Life is about living on your own terms.

Maybe it takes you seven tries to get that job.
Maybe you don’t start a business until you’re 63
.
Maybe you decide to wear the same outfit every day because you hate choice.

These are all decisions you get to make and that’s the fun part. When you realize everything is your choice, you see a beauty about life that has been previously hidden from you.


8. There’s nothing wrong with simple.

Sometimes the simple life is looked down upon. Having simplicity in your life means that you can find meaning a lot easier.

The options are less. The focus is laser sharp.

The difference is nothing but effort and a simple meaning gives you the motivation. Don’t underestimate the simple life.

Complexity brings problems.

Simplicity brings clarity.


9. Today’s a celebration.

You woke up. Not everyone did — some people died overnight.

You can breathe, walk and hug your partner. You’re healthy and not sitting in a hospital dying of a terminal illness like cancer. Life isn’t that bad.

Celebrate life otherwise you’ll take it for granted.


10. The answer is usually sorry.

Most big problems start out when one side refuses to admit they were wrong or messed up. It harms your ego when you say sorry but it allows you to overcome problems that require this one word to be solved.

You can either live with problems, or you can learn to say sorry.

Choose sorry.


11. A simple text matters.

We’re all living with problems that most of us know nothing about. A text message to someone you know or love could be the difference.

A tiny amount of kindness can stop someone who is having the darkest of days from doing something they’ll regret.


12. You can always start again.

If things don’t work out, it’s okay. You always get a second chance. There’s always more time.

There’s no need to get hung up on a failure. Start again, learn the lesson andtry to do 1% better than you did last time. If you follow that process enough times, you’ll eventually achieve your goal.

False starts are a sign you’re making progress.

    Well said and I can personally relate to several of your points, but I think #6 especially stands out for me. I love stories about little kids who do BIG things, like the little boy who started a movement that has (so far) save over 1,000 dogs from being euthanized, or the young woman who collected thousands of books for kids in shelters even as she suffered from a painful chronic medical condition. We all have the capacity to do so much more than we give ourselves credit for! Thanks for the inspiration.

    It takes a lot to realize and implement these things into life. Deep inside we know the truth, yet too reluctant (or may be scared) to follow them. Great post! Thanks.
