25 Lessons I Somehow Missed When I Was Younger

“Always remember to slow down in life; live, breathe, and learn.” – Unknown

Do you think it’s possible you missed out on some lessons when you were younger? I can absolutely say without a doubt there were definitely lessons that I somehow overlooked.

Looking back, I realize there were times when I just really was not paying enough attention.

It’s not that I was deliberately making bad decisions, but there were definitely times I would have been in a much better place if I hadn’t missed out on learning an earlier lesson.

But, you live and learn.

And, now that I am aware that lessons really do come to us in everyday life, you can bet that I am paying attention.

Here are 25 lessons that I somehow overlooked. Better late than never … right?

25 lessons I missed when I was younger:

  1. If you don’t do things wholeheartedly, you will never get the best results.
  2. It’s okay to fail, but it’s not okay to stop simply because you failed.
  3. If you are continually telling people you don’t care about something, you actually do care.
  4. You can be absolutely terrified to do something and still successfully take a step forward and do it.
  5. You can work too hard, but you can never love too much.
  6. Life is not meant to be free of challenges, but you are meant to overcome every single one of them.
  7. You can work really hard and still not succeed all because you didn’t believe you could.
  8. When you commit to do something and decide you will continue trying no matter how many times you fail, as long as you learn the lessons that come your way, you will eventually succeed.
  9. All that “Believe in Yourself” stuff actually works and can absolutely change your life.
  10. When you know you can do something but other people tell you that you can’t, it’s not about proving them wrong, but rather proving to yourself that you are right.
  11. When you choose not to take a chance even though it feels right deep down inside, it’s always fear holding you back.
  12. Who you believe you are deep down determines who you actually are and what you will really be able to do.
  13. If you miss out on the lesson the first time around, it will come back in a different box with a different color bow.
  14. You really are supposed to live and learn and get better at living.
  15. When you find the right person, you really will know.
  16. Perception is sooooo reality.
  17. The person that will stand in your way the most will be the person you look at everyday in the mirror (until you figure out how to get out of your own way).
  18. If you aren’t finding things to laugh and smile about, it is because you are taking yourself too seriously.
  19. Success doesn’t just happen. You put in the work and increase your confidence day after day in order to create success.
  20. There is no such thing as luck. There are no coincidences.
  21. When things are clicking and you are in the zone, enjoy it and run with that feeling.
  22. You don’t have to see the play-by-play and how things will ultimately come together, you just have to believe they will and take action.
  23. If someone is argumentative and you diffuse the situation by taking the higher road, you ultimately “win” even if you never prove your point.
  24. The only thing better than being silent is being still.
  25. If you are authentic and just do you, there really is nothing better.
