I post a lot about life truths and facts on this website regardless of how harsh they are.
At certain times in our lives, it’s crucial to lower our resistance to life’s harsh realities and, instead,
embrace and acknowledge them.
Grasping these truths heightens your awareness of life and enhances your ability to discern what’s right and wrong.
Here are the 14 Shocking and Eye-Opening Truths About Life You Won’t Believe:
1. Unproductive days quickly become unproductive years if you don’t sharpen your focus.
Don’t fall into the trap of deceiving yourself with unproductive lies, such as:
- “I’ll do it later.”
- “It’s easy; I can do it next time.”
- “I’ll have enough time tomorrow.”
- “I’ll sleep and complete it after I wake up.”
You’re not just making excuses; you’re instructing yourself in the art of crafting better excuses.
What you teach yourself becomes ingrained in your subconscious and transforms into a habit.
These unproductive days pile up, stretching into unproductive months and shaping your reality.
This habit ultimately shapes your future.
2. A walk is never a waste of time, it calms the mind, gives you new ideas, and makes you feel happier.
One crucial lesson that I grasped later in life is this:
productivity, hard work, discipline, determination, and planning are undeniably vital.
However, what holds even greater significance is the fuel that enhances these qualities.
While being exceptionally productive and disciplined is important,
engaging in activities like exercise, reading books, and taking leisurely strolls holds immense importance.
These activities not only boost your productivity but also contribute to your well-being and provide valuable insights.
The time devoted to these endeavors is not lost; it’s an investment with a high return on investment.
3. As you get smarter, you use simpler words and make clearer sentences.
People aren’t convinced by many words; they are easily convinced by meaningful sentences that make sense.
Make complicated concepts easy and simple, and people will love listening to you.
4. Great relationships don’t distract you from your personal goals; they get you there.
Strong relationships inspire you to evolve into the finest version of yourself.
This is why we naturally form profound connections with those who uplift us.
The individuals in your circle can readily identify your vulnerabilities and guide you in the right direction.
When you have the right people around you, your journey in life will extend much further.
5. People are disappointed in you when they can’t manipulate you.
You are a difficult person to anyone who can’t manipulate you.
People get mad when you don’t fall victim to their deceitful plans
because you can see their intentions.
Never apologize for that and it’s completely okay not to be liked by others.
You did the right thing by standing up for yourself.
6. The smarter you get, the less you get offended.
This principle extends to the elderly. As you grow older and wiser, you tend to be less easily offended.
Many things spoken are inconsequential, mere words.
If you possess self-assurance, you won’t be offended by insults from others.
When you have a deep understanding of yourself, people’s opinions of you hold less sway over your emotions.
7. You meet interesting people during the process of becoming the best version of yourself.
The best days of your life are the uncomfortable days when you are leveling up.
You meet like-minded people and explore yourself in a way you never knew.
Some qualities in the people you meet are the reflection of yourself.
To find out that, you have to dare to become the better version of yourself.
8. When you are not sure, choose the more ambitious path.
When faced with two options–one, pursuing a fresh project, and the other, settling for the status quo
opt for the more ambitious path.
It’s in these ambitious choices that growth and new learning opportunities await.
Staying in your current place, however, likely means a lifetime of monotony.
Choosing the ambitious route, you’ll embark on a transformative journey,
encountering new challenges, places, and individuals.
It’s an experience that you must undergo at least once in your lifetime.
9. People with no goals and ambitions consistently invent drama.
Ambitious individuals, dedicated to their goals, seldom engage in unnecessary drama.
Such behavior tends to be the domain of those without clear objectives.
For those without direction, drama may serve as a default mode of expression,
often due to a lack of other meaningful pursuits.
It’s an essential fact to keep in mind.
It’s advisable to surround yourself with people who possess goals and aspirations.
They have a clear sense of purpose in life and conversation with them is better.
10. Maybe you are not an introvert; maybe you just need better people.
Some people aren’t introverts; they are introverted because of their surroundings.
No matter how extroverted you are, if you are around toxic people, you will develop an introverted nature.
11. Building self-confidence is the art of keeping promises you made yourself.
Qualities like self-confidence aren’t constructed through mere words;
you must demonstrate your capabilities to yourself.
- You promised yourself to hit the gym and stay disciplined.
- You promised yourself to save $1,000 this month, do whatever it takes
By honoring these commitments to yourself,
you naturally develop self-trust and experience personal growth.
12. Learn to say no; some people feel no shame when they take advantage of your kindness.
Some people prioritize their desires and will never be ashamed of what they do.
You have to learn to build a healthy boundary and say no when it’s necessary.
13. One way to find yourself is to live alone in a foreign country. New rules, new language, and new people.
If you are lost because you have been through a lot and started wondering who you truly are, here’s the solution.
14. You don’t change when you live abroad, you simply rediscover how much of your personality is conditioned by where you live.
This might confuse you, but a big part of your personality is shaped by society.
Until we meet, stay safe.
