Lessons of life

Every situation is a lesson to be learned. From the most mundane chores to the most complex projects, life is always ready to teach you something.

Life is ready to teach when you are willing to learn. And the more you learn from what life offers, the better life becomes.

The lessons are usually not all that obvious. Yet they are there if you will think to take a look. The lessons are there in every moment, in every dilemma, in every frustration and every joy. They are there in every sadness, every victory, every discomfort and every pleasure.

Each lesson you learn paves the way for a new and even more valuable one. Each lesson you ignore keeps coming back, again and again.

One way or another, life will teach you its lessons. When you’re a willing student, those lessons are pure gold.

— Ralph Marston
