5 BRUTAL TRUTHS ABOUT LIFE NO ONE WANTS TO ADMIT



I want to share with you 5 brutal truths about life no one
wants to admit. It’s a lot easier to be ignorant to the
realities of life.
However, the more time that we spend pretending that truths
aren’t a part of our reality, the more time that we waste not
living in alignment with our true selves.
Is ignorance bliss? Absolutely not. The fact of the matter is
that if we want to grow and expand, we need to be honest
with ourselves. We need to be willing to open our minds, and
see the world through a different lens.
These 5 brutal truths about life that no one wants to admit
will remind you of what is important and will empower you to
take control of your life.
In the words of Maya Angelou, “When you know better, you
do better.”Here are 5 truths about life no one wants to admit:
1. You can’t make everyone happy
This is a battle that you will never win. No matter how hard
that you try, there are people out there that you just can’t
make happy. The sooner that you can accept this, the freer
that you will be.
You need to accept the fact that most people just don’t
desire to be happy because they are attached to their
current state of living. They don’t want to give up their
stories, excuses, and limitations of why they CAN be happy.
According to research, thinking pessimistically is a staple in
the depressed person’s cognitive structure.
Not only can you not make everyone happy, but not everyone
is going to like you. There is always going to be someone
that will criticize and judge you, based on how you look, how
you sound, and how you live your life.
The most successful people throughout history have critics.
I’m not for everyone, and that’s OK. The sooner that you
accept this fact, the sooner you will not be affected by
negative people . All that really matters in life is what you
think about YOU.
2. You will never be perfect
No matter how hard you try, you will never be perfect. So
many of us hold ourselves to such a high standard, that it
ends up creating a lot of suffering.
You need to recognize that it’s OK to make mistakes in life.
Everyone has bad days. The earlier that you can embrace
that you aren’t perfect, the happier that you will be.
A lot of people are held back in their lives because they
become paralyzed by the fear that they will fail at the very
things that they want to accomplish. As a result, they never
take action.
If you consider yourself to be a perfectionist, it is critical that
you break the loop and shift your mindset. It can take away
from your most important asset, which is time, leaving you
feeling mentally exhausted.
Instead of focusing on perfectionism, go for ‘good enough.’
Do the best that you can with the tools that you have. If you
wait for conditions to be perfect before you start anything,
you will never start.
3. Nothing in the external world makes you
happy
Material possessions will never make you happy in life. All
that they will do is provide you with short-term pleasure and
gratification. Researchers have a term for it – it’s called,
“retail therapy.”
Happiness is an inside job; it is something that we create
each moment of our lives. You could be happy right now,
simply by focusing on what you are grateful for.
This is why I believe in the power of morning rituals. Spend
time every morning focusing on the things that nourish your
mind, body, and soul.
4. One day, you will die
A lot of people are afraid of the idea of death, but what if it
wasn’t as scary as you think? It all comes down to your
beliefs.
Rather than fear it, I think that death is empowering. I don’t
fear it because my belief is that our spirit carries on after we
leave our physical body.
We are on this planet for a limited amount of time. It’s a
sobering fact, but it’s true. We live our lives pretending that
the end is never going to come. When you embrace the
concept of death, it empowers you to cherish life even more.
This is best reflected in one of my favorite quotes by
Michael Landon Jr. that reads, “Somebody should tell us,
right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might
live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say.
Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many
tomorrows.”
Research has indicated that the East Asian yin and yang
philosophy of death – where life can’t exist without death –
allows individuals to use death as a reminder to enjoy life.
The reality is that we will all meet the same fate as one
another, so while we are on this earth we need to seize every
moment and live it to the fullest. In the words of Giovanni
Falcone, “He who doesn’t fear death only dies once.”
5. Time is the most valuable asset
Time is the most valuable asset that you have. Second by
second, you are given the opportunity to become the person
that you desire to be. How do you use your time?
Spend your time doing things that bring meaning to your life
and that make you come alive inside. The moment that I
realized how important this was, I stopped wasting time on
things that didn’t matter. Every day I focus on making sure
that everything that I do has a purpose behind it.
The reality is that time is depreciating. We can’t get more of
it, which is why we need to spend it wisely. Don’t spend ANY
time doing anything that isn’t bringing you closer towards
the person that you desire to be.
I hope these 5 brutal truths about life no one wants to admit
have opened your eyes and offered a different perspective.
Don’t let these truths hold you back. Rather, let them
empower you to take action and create your reality, on your
terms.
