Interesting Lessons from the Peaks and Valleys of Life

  • The errors you commit today will land you in bad times and the wise actions you take today will get you into better times. In fact it’s this interchange of ups and downs that make us truly appreciate how far we have come and aspire to keep moving towards our goals.
  • Bad times don’t last forever, and the phase shall pass. Remain calm and work persistently towards attaining your ambitions in life. In the process save up some resources for unexpected twists and turns in life.
  • Rock bottoms teach you life’s greatest lessons that mountain tops never will. A valley experience is a time to introspect and obtain better insights into your shortcomings, gain more understanding and acquire the virtue of patience.
  • Rather than sympathizing with yourself, choose to view things differently and grab every opportunity that takes you on a growth path. A simple change in attitude and a positive lens of viewing the world can render the motivation to improve your circumstances
  • Be grateful for all the good and bad experiences life has thrown your way. When you reach the pinnacle of success remain humble and free yourself from any pride and arrogance.
  • On a peak the vices of overconfidence, complacency and a know-it-all attitude will certainly lead to your downfall into a valley.
  • Visualize yourself enjoying a better future and work backward to realistically make it happen. You need not take yourself too seriously along the journey and have fun as you go in the pursuit of your dreams.
  • The faster you connect with the right people and become of greater service to others, the sooner you make your way out of the valley.
