In our life, we must’ve come across people of different personalities and behaviors which we can relate to. This can be considered as a lesson that life is trying to teach you in means of how a person should behave and how we should treat other human beings. Some don’t realize their behavior unless they see it happen in front of them.
There is a common saying revolving around about life giving you lemons and what we should do when that happens. Although there have been a whole lot of responses to it and opinions from different people, we tend to have one on our own instead of relying upon and following other’s opinions. Life teaches a lot of lessons and there should be something we need to inculcate in our lives for the betterment of our inner self. Once we take care of our inner self, we can tackle almost anything that life aims at us. But, as easy as words can describe, it might get difficult to follow it. Our life coach claims that it might get difficult in the beginning to tread on a path that will help you in the future, but with the right intentions, you can make it easier.
Children are often taught by their teachers and parents on how they ‘should’ do something because it’s important, and not because they have a choice. This unhealthy upbringing can risk the thinking and mindset of the child making it difficult for them to make bigger life decisions later on in life. These children who were trained this way must’ve attained success in their life, but our life coach says that this success isn’t derived from a happy mind. The problem is the success that we attain, simply cannot and will never offer us the significance, wholehearted satisfaction and peace we seek. What the children need to be taught at their earlier age as a crucial life lesson is to seek the right path which will offer them love, honesty, compassion, healing, building strong boundaries, mustering intense commitment, even if it means them taking risks.
Let us go through some of the crucial lessons we need to learn in our life and inculcate it before it’s too late:
Do Not Waste Your Time On “Shoulds”
You must’ve come across the different notions of our society on how they want us to behave and carry ourselves. They have an opinion about each and everything when it comes to how a woman or a man ‘should’ do certain things in life. Do not let these things stop you from doing what you love and fall on the feet of society by following their rules and opinions.
The expectations and the beliefs projected upon you will only drag you further down, making it difficult for you to reach the light you’ve been aiming for since the time you were a child. The society will have a say in everything you do in your life, regardless of any gender, making objections and projections on how you ‘should’ move on in life. Our life coach claims that you must stop being obliged to respond to what you think is, and begin doing what you want to do, the way you want to do it. Then you can learn to cope with the results, powerfully.
Stop Compromising Your Soul
Although we have been asked to compromise on materialistic things our whole life, there is one certain thing we shouldn’t ever compromise on. And that thing is our soul. Once we begin compromising our soul, there will be certain consequences that you will end up facing later on in your life. However, it may be fine to compromise on things like getting the perfect clothes, size of your home, room, etc in favor of another person, but that doesn’t mean you can get to do the same to your soul to make others happy.
Compromising on your soul means feeling suppressed about certain things in life, once you try expressing it freely. Our life coach claims that it isn’t selfish to compromise our soul but it is indeed truth, transparency, compassion, strength, and integrity.
Express Your Creativity
Each and every person is creative. And if at all you feel the other way round, you are washed with misconceptions and haven’t tried to understand your creative side. Allow yourself to see what’s hidden beneath that exterior of yours. You will soon realize what you’re capable of. People often suppress themselves from exposing their creative side to the world, thinking that it wouldn’t be appreciated. This thought should be removed from your mind, because until and unless you believe in your work, how do you expect others to like it?
Start by learning to love your creative abilities and you will soon realize how much of a difference it makes to you and the people around you. If you go about trying to create impressions in another’s mind, you’ll end up struggling your whole life, constantly trying and trying. Do not let go of your creative abilities from your childhood just because you weren’t appreciated by a particular person. To honor your creativity, you don’t have to throw your entire career out the window. Just pick up that brush of paint and begin engaging in something creative, today. That step alone will make your life better.
Let Go Of Unwanted Resentments
It is common to feel pain, guilt, anger, and resentment in our lives. But clinging on to that disappointment is something that should be avoided. Right from unhealthy relationships to facing hard situations in life, you must’ve experienced certain downfalls that have filled you with disappointment. This happens to almost everyone and should be accepted as a phase in your life. Life is full of hard bumps that will test you in extreme situations. You should be strong enough to get back up and fight to sustain your future.
Holding on to the sadness will only make you miss out on all the good things in life, which will be regretted later on life. Drowning in the poison of hate and devastated dreams will suppress you from finding compassion in your heart to forgive, seeing your part in it, letting go, and moving on to build a meaningful and rewarding life. Take these as lessons and learn to grow from it.
Seek Help When Necessary
This point is a simple one but something that people refuse to do. There will be a point in our life when we feel that we can’t do it alone. This thought shouldn’t be pushed aside but instead solved immediately by seeking help from someone whom you can trust and who will respect your decisions.
One of the most important factors which people stop from doing is reaching out to others when they’re in immense need of a helping hand. This will make you hostile and lonely. Some people will be able to move forward in life and will be able to reach that position in life with the help of a little motivation from someone that cares about your wellbeing. There are plenty of life coaches who are trained to help people in such situations, by giving you the willpower and motivation to bring out the strength that was already in you.
Our life coach in Dubai claims that inculcating these crucial life lessons, one can carry forth a healthy life by being able to transform your life into something better.
