8 Things About Life You Need To Know

By Queenie Ang

1. Friends Come and Go

When I was in high school, I always imagined spending most of my life with the same people. Then when I realized I had to move to college, that all changed. Once again, I made some close college friends but left them all behind when I moved from the UK to South Africa.

Friends will always come and go in your life; even though I’m back in the UK now, all my friends are in university around the country and not exactly in meeting distance. 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.

Remember: There are tons of people waiting to befriend with you. Even if you are having few friends right now, you never know what will happen next.

2.Things Don’t Go According To Your Every Wish

Once a DJ, I asked for nothing but some used turntables as Christmas presents. But no one answered my prayer and I had to use my own savings to buy them.

Things don’t go according to your every wish: people show up late, people disappoint you, things are sold out.

Remember: Don’t be attached to materialistic world. Learn to deal with unfulfilled wishes. There is not much time left for you to be sorrowful.

3. Many People Will Love You, but Many Will Not

Whether you are famous or not, there are people who love for shared interests or value, and people who hate you out of jealousy.

Remember: So what if you don’t earn their love? It is their business to be talking bad things about you. You are a completed individual who does not need others’ praises to make you feel good.

4. Nobody Can Transform Your Life Like You Can

Life would be much easier if we could make ourselves orators by simply reading a blog or have a share of our friends’ success. But your life is yours and you are the one who make decisions for yourself.

Remember: Live your life. Don’t count your life on external forces. You can’t always get help from others.

5. You Are Going to Fail

Before I could make money out of my website, I had actually created over 7 websites. And the company to which I had devoted hours and hours was just closed down in the previous month. There are failures in examinations, competitions, projects, business and so on, and everyone fails at least once in their lives.

Important Lesson: 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

On some occasions when you have your shorts on and you’re ready for the beach, it’s going to rain. Or, when you get to that first hole and you’re ready to tee off – the clouds will open. Things aren’t always going to go how you would like them to.

Important Lesson: 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

We are not sure of the exact day, but that day will come eventually. Who doesn’t want to live as long as one wishes? But we all know it is impossible.

Remember: Seize the day. Say what you want to say now. Do what you want to do now.

8. Someone Else Will Always Have More

You can’t be the owner of the most cash, the most friends or the most fans. But it doesn’t mean you are not missing anything.

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.
