10 Old School Life Lessons Your Parents Should Have Taught You:

1. It’s impossible to please everyone.

2. Nobody cares.

3. The older you get, the more important your health will be.

4. There is no tomorrow.

5. Own your mistakes.

6. You can change.

7. TV steals your life.
8. You’ll regret the things you didn’t do more than the things you did.

9. Money is great for solving certain challenges, but it’s not a cure for everything.

10. Your level of success will matter less at the end of your life.
Imagine how much different your life would be if you could start over again.

You’d probably put your time and energy into different things.

There are many life lessons you can learn right now.

And live the remainder of your life as a winner.

Here’s 10 of them:
1. It’s impossible to please everyone.

Even if you’re the freshest, best tasing tomato sauce Earth, someone out there doesn’t like tomato sauce.

And who cares if they don’t.

There’s no way to make everyone happy.

So, do what you can, but make sure your happiness comes first.
2. Nobody cares.

Sure, your friends and family care to a point.

But everyone else is usually too preoccupied with their own life to worry about your successes and failures.

Nobody’s watching.

Feel free to make mistakes and have the balls to stand for something.
3. The older you become, the more important your health will be.

Health is your most important asset. Don’t wait until it’s failing to do something about it.

Start exercising and eating right today.

Get off your ass and get moving...Now!
4. There is no tomorrow.

Stop putting off everything until tomorrow, Monday, or next year.

Time is passing by.

You don’t know how many more tomorrows you’ll have.

Stop the BS excuses and get busy making the most of them.
5. Own your mistakes.

Life is too short for petty disagreements and grudges.

If you did someone wrong or caused a situation to get worse, stop making excuses.

Be the bigger person and apologize that you screwed up.
6. You can change.

You can change your weight, income, social life, career, and just about anything else you please.

Your limitations exist due to your self-limiting believes, not because someone else said so.

Mindset is everything.
7. TV steals your life.

TV is a big, sucking, black hole.

If the best you can do with your time is watch TV, you might consider working on your life.

No one ever improved their life via the power of TV.

It’s a highly effective way to distract you and solves nothing.
8. You’ll regret the things you didn’t do more than the things you did.

When you look back on your screw ups, you’ll laugh.

When you look back on the things you didn’t do, you’ll feel a sting that never goes away.

If you’re not risking your life, take your best shot.
9. Money is great for solving certain challenges, but it’s not a cure for everything.

Some people say that money solves nothing.

Love is all that matters.

But love won’t pay the mortgage, feed your family, or repair a flat tire.
Money is a necessary part of life, but it doesn’t solve all your problems.

Money and love are necessary, just not for the same things.
10. Your level of success will matter less at the end of your life.

We put too much emphasis on careers.

Later in life we realize there were other things more worthy of our time.

Have you ever heard a dying man lament that he didn’t spend more time working?

You never will.
You can take advantage of the wisdom you haven’t experienced yet.

Why not live now like the wise person you’ll someday become?
