There are so many events happened in our lives that teach us important life lessons and change our personality completely.

Today, I am going discuss some life lessons that if learned on time, can save us from suffering.

Life Lessons - Conquer Yourself


1. Everything is Temporary

The very first thing you need to learn is that neither personality nor blessing is permanent in your life.

When you understand this, you stop forcing people to stay in your life and let the person who wants to leave.

You become mentally strong because no other person can make you happy or sad.

Your Mindset is the only reason for your happiness and sadness.

2. No One Can Feel Your Pain

Another lesson that is related to expectations is that nobody can feel your current situation.

The only person who can understand your situation is yourself.

No one can live your life just like you can’t live someone’s life.

Everybody has his life problems which he has to solve alone without help.

So be a brave fighter and say yes to challenges.

3. Your Knowledge will Never Complete

Your knowledge is always incomplete.

Every human is in the learning phase till death because life teaches you a new lesson at every step.

So never assume that your knowledge is complete because this is the statement of fools.

Be a good listener and try to seek knowledge from every person you meet every day.

4. Our Mind is Our Best Friend and The Worst Enemy

Your mindset is the element that can make you either a winner or a loser.

If your mind motivates you to think big, explore things, and helps you to fight every challenge that comes in your way then he is your best friend.

But if your mind discourages and demotivates you just because of other people’s negative opinions, your mind is playing the role of a villain.

You need to change your mind if you want to be a winner.

5. Life isn’t Fair

You have to accept that nobody is granted a perfect life.

You have to make it perfect.

Because when we start expecting every blessing at our breakfast table without any hustle, we are just fooling ourselves.

The life we want is always on the other side of the hard work that we don’t want to do.

So, you have to stop expecting and start working.

6. The biggest Risk is taking no Risk

In this current modern era where the world has become a global village and life is getting advanced day by day, it has become compulsory to take risks.

If you try to examine the lives of successful people deeply, you will find that every successful person is an action-taker.

If you are not taking risks and staying still, the world will crush you and move forward.

Now it’s all up to you.

7. A lifetime isn’t forever

A lesson you need to keep in mind is that life is not permanent.

It helps you to make your decisions wisely and to set your priorities accordingly.

Life is all about setting priorities and making the right decisions.

You should

  • set goals,

  • make investments and,

  • build relationships while keeping the time in mind that you have.

Especially you have to invest your time wisely which is non-renewable.

8. It’s doesn’t matter what people say and feel about you

The biggest life lesson is “How to overcome the fear of being judged?”

When you start thinking about other people’s perception of you.

You become demoralized and might start hating yourself.

This causes you to feel bad inside.

What other people think about you is none of your business.

You just have to walk in your lane irrespective of people’s thoughts.

Once you achieve your goals, people’s thoughts change automatically.

9. Happiness is a Choice

Happiness is always your own choice.

Only you can make yourself happy.

Ninety percent of happiness stuff comes from your inside and you can run your emotions yourself.

If you expect some other person to come into your life and make you happy, you are never going to be happy.

10. You can’t satisfy your greed

This point is related to the nature of every human.

Human greed can never be filled.

You should learn to satisfy yourself with every blessing that you have and work hard to achieve for that you don’t have.

The only way to tackle this situation is to compete yourself not with other people but with your past version.

11. Beneath Anger is Always Fear

Control your emotions before your emotions control you.

Especially anger that ultimately leads to fear, and this fear leads to negativity.

When negativity overcomes your mind, your brain just stops working which is followed by a disaster ahead.

Calm brains are actually the genius ones.

12. Overthinking makes things bigger

Overthinking is the second name of negativity.

Thinking is a good thing until it is analytical.

When you overthink, you see a minor hindrance like a very big blockage and you instantly lose motivation and ultimately quit your goal.

So the thing you need to do is to take the problems easily and try to solve them with planning with a cool mindset.
