What are the 10 Life Lessons you wished you knew 10 years ago?
The 10 Life Lessons you wished you knew:
1. Life is now.
We keep waiting for that amazing thing to happen in the future that will be the key to our happiness. But this is it. Right now. Life continues to be a series of right nows. So learn to love right now, and you’ll have an amazing life.
2. Courage is not the absence of fear.
Fear, that crazy fear who won’t allow us to move forward, who won’t allow us to grow and transform our lives and of those around us, will always be present in our lives. Even though many of us know that fear does not exist and that fear is only in our mind, we choose to be paralyzed by it and we choose to allow it to control our lives, our dreams, our goals and the level of our happiness. Fear will be present whenever you want to stretch, whenever you want to get out of your comfort zone and whenever you want to do more, be more, have more. What we need to do is look beyond it and always be aware of the fact that most of the things we fear never happen, because FEAR is nothing more than False Expectation Appearing Real.
3. Relationships rule.
At the end of the day, what matters most are the people in our lives. Put them first every single day. Before work. Before the computer. Before your hobbies. Treat them like they are everything to you. Because they are.
4. Debt isn’t worth it.
Nothing is more draining and humiliating than being in debt. Spend below your means. Save money. Live free.

5. We get treated in life the way we teach others to treat us.
People will treat you the way you allow them to treat you. Respect and love yourself and others will do the same.
6. There are no mistakes, only lessons we need to master.
If you learn from everything that happens to you, you will discover that there is no such thing as mistakes, only lessons to be learned. And if you don’t, chances are that your life at 40 will look the same way it did when you were 20. And at 60 the way it looked when you were 40…
7. Life is all about the journey and less about the destination.
A lot of times we get so focused on our big dreams and goals, that we forget to enjoy this journey called life. Always remember that life is all about this moment. Life is all about the journey and less about the destination. So take a deep cleansing breath and allow yourself to be present in everything you do. Allow yourself to enjoy each second of your life – to observe the world around you, the people present in your life and the beauty that is present within and all around you…

8. If you don’t believe in yourself, nobody will.
Don’t expect others to see gold where you can only see dust. If you don’t believe in yourself, if you don’t believe that you are capable, a worthy human being, chances are that nobody will. You will act on that belief and people will treat you based on what you think about yourself, based on how you treat yourself and based on how you act and behave in the world.
9. If you love yourself, chances are that others will love you also.
It’s all about self-love, it all starts with self-love. If you don’t have the love for yourself, how can you expect to get it from somebody else? Love yourself and others will love you also.

10. Loneliness is different from solitude.
There is a difference between being lonely and being in solitude. When you are in solitude, you take advantage of it to get in touch with your inner self, to meditate and to quiet your mind, and that constant need to be around others in order for you to no longer feel lonely, will disappear. Wayne Dyer talks about this in such a wonderful way, saying that we can never be lonely if we like the person we’re alone with. If you like yourself, if you have no problem with your own person, if you have accepted yourself completely, you will be content with having some quiet time, away from all the noise. You will feel happy when alone and also when surrounded by other people.
