2. Nothing in life is permanent, everything is temporary.
We face tons of things in life but nothing is permanent. Everything passes at some point or another. You don’t have to let yourself be stuck in a rut if you don’t want to be. Just make the changes you need to make and get where you need to be.
3. You must build meaning.
When it comes to meaning you cannot just find it. You have to build it. You work yourself up to where you need to be. The more you grow the more meaning you will find. While tons of people will tell you that finding meaning is going to fill your life it won’t, creating meaning will benefit you on a far deeper level.
Perfection does not exist. You are not perfect and no one else is perfect. Once again, perfection does not exist.
5. You cannot do everything, we all need help sometimes.
Sometimes you are going to need help and it is okay to ask for it. No one is able to do everything. You cannot accomplish all things in life, sometimes you have to make decisions whether they are hard decisions to make or not. Believe in yourself and let those who care for you pitch in when things get tough.
6. Everything in the future is unknown, nothing is ever certain.
Nothing is ever truly known. Everything you think about the future is just an idea until it actually happens. The future is unknown in all possible ways.
Failure is a big part of life. There is nothing wrong with failing. Sometimes you have to let yourself fall so that you can learn how to fly. If you truly want success you have to face failure on more than one occasion.
