Life is all about experiences. You learn, like, dislike, love, hate many things in life which is called experiences altogether. Today, I am going to mention 10 experiences which complete life.
1. Taking risks
Not taking any risk is the biggest risk in life. In a world, that is changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking any risk.
– Mark Zuckerberg
Taking risks lead to consistent growth in life. Taking risk doesn’t mean going to exams without studying, it means to take calculated risks. By saying calculated risks I mean, to analyze all the factors that can affect, think of positive and negative consequences, the impact of results on others etc.. Taking calculated risks supercharge your growth in life.
2. Solo trip
Solo travel not only pushes you out of your comfort zone, it also pushes you out of the zone of others’ expectations.
– Suzy Strutner
Everyone wants to travel with the people they love, and you are the person that you love the most. There are many advantages of planning a trip with yourself:
- No one can cancel the trip
- Can go wherever you want
- You will learn more about yourself
- Feeling of having no responsibilities of others.
3. Bungee Jumping, Skydiving & Scuba Diving
The quickest way to acquire self-confidence is to do exactly what you are afraid to do.
Bungee jumping will put out all the fear inside you. Skydiving would give you the 10 most precious seconds of your life. “Once you have tasted the taste of sky, you will forever look up”. Scuba diving would make you realize the beauty beneath the earth.
4. Following your inner call
Dip into your own soul. Find your own truth. What call to your heart. What moves your spirit. Make your life dance to the song of your own essence.
There might be something you always wanted to do. You might always be wanted to learn new things like music, dance, singing, photography etc. There might be some places you always wanted to explore. There could be end number of things you always wanted to do or to experience but couldn’t due to pressure, fear, responsibilities or any other reason. Follow your inner call, it is the best gift to yourself.
5. Spending quality time with your parents
Love your parents. We are so busy growing up, we often forget they are also growing old.
Separation is the ugly truth of life. Your parents won’t be alive in few years down the line. Find the time in your busy life just to talk to them, otherwise, you will regret later in life when they won’t be there to listen to you. Their world revolves just around your life. Few minutes of dedicated conversation may give them the happiest moment of their life.
And, NEVER COMPLAIN ABOUT WHAT YOUR PARENTS COULD NOT GIVE YOU. IT WAS PROBABLY ALL THEY HAD.
6. Asking her out.
Cost of not following your heart is spending rest of your life wishing you had.
Have the guts to tell her about the feeling you have for her, else you would find yourself regretting rest of your life about the chances you didn’t take. Fear is temporary, regret is forever.
I have not failed. I have just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.
– Thomas Edison
Every failure is a lesson. If you are not willing to fail, you are not ready to succeed. It could be in the career, relationships or business. Every time you fail just remember that you are one more step closer to success. You just need perseverance. Use that failure as an opportunity to improve yourself.
One day you will say, “I did it”. Failure is not the opposite of success, it is a part of success.
8. Falling in love
Love is the condition in which the happiness of another person becomes more important to you.
No, I am not talking about that love that happens to you daily on road. When you are in true love you will experience to love unconditionally. It teaches many things, from hurt to hate. It is a mixture of many feelings like care, hurt, happy, sad, laugh, cry, jealousy, anger, joy, disgust, surprise, trust, cheat, fear, no fear, honesty etc. Everyone should learn to love unconditionally in life.
9. Companionship of dog
A dog is the only thing on the earth that loves you more than he loves himself.
Falling in love teaches you how to love unconditionally. But a dog makes you realize how it feels to be loved unconditionally.
DOG treats you like his GOD. He plays with you when you are happy, becomes sad when you are sad, cares you when you are sick, tries to protect you from strangers, misses you when you are not there. And what he demands in return from you? Nothing! This is called unconditional love.
10. Feeding the needy
Always help someone, you might be the help from god they are praying for.
You would experience a true satisfaction when you helped someone really needy. And, who knows when you become an angel for them sent by god, and their life gets changed just by your little effort.
Always lend a hand to needy by serving them through service, money, knowledge or by any other form.
