Best Life Advice I Have Received

Best life advice I have received. Hey guys, I hope you are well. In today’s post, I will be sharing with you the best Advice about life I have received.  As you know I have been through a lot of challenges and these are some advice that I have been given of which helped me through it all.

Best Life Advice I have received

Nothing Is Yours without Your Name on It

You will be surprised who gave me this advice, Chris from The Engagement That Changed My Life. Ever since he gave that advice, I have always used it upon any decision I make. One day Chris was talking about the army.‘Nothing is yours without your name on it.’ He explained it doesn’t matter what people say, if your name is not labelled, it can be easily taken away from you because it’s not yours.

I apply this to everything I do. It doesn’t matter what it is, whether it is friendship, relationship or even a cinema ticket. Your friendship can be ruined unless the bond is strong. Your relationship can be ruined unless he/she stop it. You just bought a cinema ticket, and you dropped it, somebody can pick it up and decide to use as their own. There is nothing you can do about it, except you fight for it back. Even if you do create a scene, the person can still claim it as their own.

Find a partner who loves you more than you love them

Women are quick to fall in love, that’s the truth. Men like to chill and have fun. My mum gave this advice when I started dating. When a man loves you, he is willing to go to any length to make sure you are happy and he is part of your happiness. A woman will love you regardless. Men take things, women give things.

Express your anger towards your success

I remember watching motivational video on YouTube, I don’t remember what the video was about, but it got me angry. I remember sitting down, and I think about everything I have been through and all the Nos I keep getting. Then this rage of anger came through to my head and I just started Screaming. It was like I have had enough of playing it over and over again in mind, and I wanted to make changes. REAL changes. So I just applied for college again and 2 years after that, well look at me now.

Remember why you started and Get things done

We reach a place in life where we feel like giving up when we start a journey of something. By remembering why you started, will make strive to complete. I remember when I was in college, my little girl was 3 years old, the lectures were giving me a hard time, and I felt like giving up. ‘What’s the point, you’re never going to work in an office environment.’ But then I remembered that I wanted a good life for myself and my daughter. If I had given up back then, I probably would have still stuck in the same situation or even worse.

Everything in life is temporary, so Live

We all have big dreams and we want to be successful. However, none of these matters if you are not living. Just because you are focused on something, does not mean you are not allowed to have fun. When I was working in my first job, I wanted to give it my all. After 2 years of working hard, literally every single day, no time off, I decided it was time to live again. I thought I was happy while working, and paying my own bills etc. It felt great, to begin with, but after a few months, that excitement fades away and I started feeling exhausted and lonely.

That was when I decided to start living again. I was still in young, and earning money but I wasn’t enjoying it. I wasn’t enjoying my life. Is this what life was about? Spend the whole week working, paying bills, and saving. I had money saved up, but I was not enjoying myself. Meanwhile all the friends I left behind, thinking they were a distraction in my life, turned out they were busy having fun with their new friends. And did not have time for me. I was hurt at first, however, I realised that was my fault. I had got it wrong. So please everyone, learn to make time for the most important moments with the most important people in your life.

I hope you enjoyed the post and learnt something it too. What’s the best you’ve been given?

  1. I love the advice to remember why we started! That’s perfect motivation for when times get tough.

  2. This is so great! I’ve been trying to enjoy the little things more, since life is so precious. Even just the little snuggles with my kids.

  3. Such a big lesson! And the way life is, you just get this message coming at you more and more with every passing year. This is a great post.

  4. Great insights and life advice! Making sure to take time to live and be present took me years to learn, yet they are incredibly important for our well-being and happiness.

  5. Great advice – I love the ‘remember why you started’. As I am working on building my online business, it has been full of challenges (which is totally normal). In that moment, it can feel impossible, however, if I stay focused on where I’m going and how this one small bump in the road fits into the bigger journey, it makes it all seem possible again.

  11. The best advice I have ever been given is “this too shall pass”. Whenever things are getting me down I try to remember this advice and move past whatever is bothering me or has me worried. I’m in the midst of writing something similiar as we speak so I may link back to you. 🙂
