There is one more month and the year 2020 will end. It was a difficult, different year, with many trials and changes in our lives. In this remaining month, let’s reflect on what happened this year for each of us, what life lessons we witnessed, what we learned from these life lessons.
Perhaps many of us believe that everything that happens in life is accidental and that nothing needs to be planned. I personally think we have to learn from what happens to us, even if there are positive or negative things. I think nothing is accidental and I think that sometimes we can draw the direction in which our life will go. Only there are moments when destiny does not intervene and things happen that do not necessarily depend on our will.
Here are some interesting and motivational quotes about life lessons.
Fill your life experiences, not things.
Some of the best lessons we ever learn are learned from past mistakes. The error of the past is the wisdom and success of the future. Dale Turner
You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending. C. S. Lewis
Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realize this. For the world was built to develop character, and we must learn that the setbacks and grieves which we endure help us in our marching onward. Henry Ford
All the lessons of history in four sentences: Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad with power. The mills of God grind slowly, but they grind exceedingly small. The bee fertilizes the flower it robs. When it is dark enough, you can see the stars. Charles A. Beard
You get in life what you have the courage to ask for. Oprah Winfrey
I believe life experiences are what an actor needs to relate to the character roles they take on, and to say the least. I’ve had many experiences leading up to this moment. Not only have my experiences become a tremendous asset in my acting, but also they helped me discover who I am and who I want to be. Gianna Simone
The purpose of life is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience. Eleanor Roosevelt
Our life experiences area result of where our attention takes us. Deepak Chopra
One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals. And so when I hear about negative and false attacks, I really don’t invest any energy in them, because I know who I am. Michelle Obama
I have learned that, although I am a good teacher, I am a much better student, and I was blessed to learn valuable lessons from my students on a daily basis. They taught me the importance of teaching to a student – and not to a test. Erin Gruwell
Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing. Denis Waitley
The focus on just thinking about standardized test scores as being synonymous with achievement for teenagers is ridiculous, right? There are so many things that kids care about, where they excel, where they try hard, where they learn important life lessons, that are not picked up by test scores. Angela Duckworth
Learning lessons is a little like reaching maturity. You’re not suddenly more happy, wealthy, or powerful, but you understand the world around you better, and you’re at peace with yourself. Learning life’s lessons is not about making your life perfect, but about seeing life as it was meant to be. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to be experienced. Soren Kierkegaard
You reflect on the people who used to be in your life, and it’s like, ‘Wow, I can’t believe that person was ever really in my life.’ But people are put into your life for seasons, for different reasons, and to teach you lessons. Selena Gomez
