Dream as you’ll live forever.
Live as if you’ll die today.-James Dean
You only live once and life is appallingly short. It might be distressing though, but once is truly enough if you’ll live it meaningfully.
Sometimes, it’s just easy to look at your friends who are laughing around and assume that they don’t see your agony. The older you get, the more you realize that happiness really takes an effort- a true hard work.
Those people who smile at you have been through every bit as much as people who scowl and weep. They are just fully armed with optimism and bravery to beam through it anyway. So how do you ensure you’re living a life to the fullest? Here are some tips to help you out.
- Decide what’s important to you
You have many plans in the list yet you only have one life to live. So start sorting things out and decide what should be done and prioritized. It doesn’t matter what it is or how hard it is. You can always try it. Don’t do what you think people want you to do. Your parents, friends and the society in general have all their opinions, but at the end of the day, no one else is in charge of your happiness, but you.
- Learn to take risks
You’ll never grow much if you’ll not escape from your comfort zone. Sometimes there’s danger involved in life, but every reward carries a risk with it. If you never take risks, you’ll never go anywhere. If you don’t take the chances, you might regret it later on. Go for it and face the consequences.
- Tell people you love them
When was the last time you said “I love you” to your loved ones?
Your families and friends would love to hear those words from you as much as your heart rejoices when you hear them. It’s like a music to one’s ear so let them listen to your song. You may not know how much it will affect them if you won’t tell them now. Just say the magic words- I LOVE YOU!
If you have a romantic interest to someone, just go for it. Although there are lot of ways on how it may end, but surely, only one thing will be kept in your heart. Remember, you have nothing to lose.
- Live in the present
Your past have molded you to become who you are today. Your future is equally important for it holds your dreams. But at the end of the day, though, the only thing that exists outside your head is the present. So think about your past and future, but only dwell on the present-the only thing that you are sure of. Don’t procrastinate. Start doing the things you can do today.
- Speak through your actions
You’ll hear people say, “I had that idea”, every time you see someone create something great. Everyone had the idea. One example is the American magnate and philanthropist, William Henry Gates III, the co-founder of Microsoft Corporation, which became the world’s largest PC software company. He achieved that extraordinary status because he went out and did it while everyone else is talking about it. Ideas are useless if you don’t act on them.
