The academy of life

Just some of my thoughts on life... I try to remember this every day and pass it on to my kids.

  • Life can change in a second, so don’t take yourself, anyone, or anything for granted.
  • Love yourself the most, and then everyone who is good to you.
  • You are very defined by what comes out of your mouth, so learn when to keep it shut.
  • Never stop learning – educate yourself even at 90.
  • You will always get more by giving.
  • Rule your thoughts or they will rule you.
  • Strong people are always humble, don’t be shy of it.
  • Your life begins with your morning thoughts.
  • Constantly shape your reality and yourself.
  • You can’t please everyone – prioritise pleasing yourself first.
  • There are a lot of things that we don’t know.
  • Think before you act, but act without hesitation.
  • Take care of your health, your food, water, and sleep.
  • You are never alone.
  • Find friends who make you laugh.
  • No one owes you anything.
  • You don’t owe anything to anyone except your parents in my world.
  • The people you love will sometimes hurt you the most.
  • Marriage is more than a feeling – find a partner you would go to war with.
  • Staying in your comfort zone for too long will destroy you.  Life is not always fair, keep faith.
  • Forgiveness will set you free
  • It’s easy to forgive – yet, it’s hard to forget.
  • Your child will follow your example, not your words.
  • You will only take memories with you.
  • Travel.
  • Leave a good memory and change lives for the better if you can, even with something small... Do one good thing a day.
