Life lesson 401
I recently got promoted to the next level in this School of Life business. So far it's been favourable to me and I am extremely grateful to God. I will not even pretend to suddenly be wise but I have learnt a few lessons along the way:
A smile is a powerful weapon...even in texts 😃.
It's okay not to want it all.
Do not form an impression of anyone based on someone else's opinion.
Listen to hear and to understand, not to reply.
You have no control over other people's emotions. One person will adore you for the same thing another will despise you for.
Enjoy the company of the very young and the elderly. They are less attached to the stresses around the world and help you to detach too.
Respect the cleaning lady, the waiter, the cab driver.
You can respect other people's cultures, opinions and beliefs even if you don't share them.
It is hard to trust people who never express any opinion. Silence is not always golden.
Do your best. After this, there is nothing more you can do.
Pick your battles. Some are just not worth showing up to.
Do not take good health for granted. You are going to need your body for your whole life. Look after it!
