Everything around you is an opportunity 
to learn more about yourself, 
to learn more about the people around you, 
and to learn more about the world.
Whatever you do, learn from it.
Wherever you are, learn from it. 
Because everything is a learning opportunity.
Take it. Do not let it go.

We grow when we learn. We don't grow when we don't learn.
If you really care about life lessons, you can start right 
with these ones from Sam Harris, a philosopher and neuroscientist

"Honesty is a gift we can give to others."
"Honesty is a gift we can give to others. 
It is also a source of power and an engine of simplicity.
Knowing that we will attempt to tell the truth, 
whatever the circumstances, 
leaves us with little to prepare for. 
We can simply be ourselves."

"Your life doesn't get any better than your mind is:
"Your life doesn't get any better than your mind is:
You might have wonderful friends, perfect health, 
a great career, and everything else you want, 
and you can still be miserable."

"Do not live your life in the future."
"We manage to never really connect with the present
moment and find fulfillment there because
we are continually hoping to become
happy in the future, and the future never arrives."

"The reality of your life is now."
"However much you feel you may need to plan
for the future, to anticipate it, to mitigate risks,
the reality of your life is now."

No one is perfect. No life is perfect. 
"Many people who experience illness imagine
that everyone else is blissfully getting on 
with life in perfect health- and this illusion 
compounds their suffering."

In Tough Times, Do Not Do This To Your Dreams

Before you give up on your dreams, remember that challenging times never last. When you are going through challenging times, remember what Robert Schuller said about tough times. He said, “Tough times never last, but tough people do.” Whatever you are facing right now, it is not here to destroy you, but to promote you. Do not forget yourself.

Be there for yourself. Because no one knows what you are going through. Do not give up. When you are done with it, your life will never be the same again. That is why you shouldn’t give up on your dreams.

Be there for you, no matter what.

“It’s utterly impossible for me to build my life on a foundation of chaos, suffering and death.”- Anne Frank

According to Anne Frank, “It’s difficult in times like these: ideals, dreams and cherished hopes rise within us, only to be crushed by grim reality. It’s a wonder I haven’t abandoned all by ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart. It’s utterly impossible for me to build my life on a foundation of chaos, suffering and death.”

Never let what you are going through stop you from pursuing your dreams.
