Experience and life are the best teachers anyone can get. They try everything possible to make you a better person. Only if we can learn our lessons from those experiences we can make ourselves better. One’s struggle to be a better person should never end. Speaking of life lessons, I want to share what I have learned in my life so far that made me a better person than what I was once.
Things that help anyone be a better person
If these things could make me a better version of what I am, I’m positively certain these could help anyone be a better person. Also, New Year is just around the corner and what better time than New year to make these things your abstract resolutions. You can also know more wonderful new year resolutions here: 15 smarter New year goals that’ll transform your 2018 totally.
1. Giving second chances
When I give a second chance, I get the satisfaction that I made a wiser decision as we all do mistakes and it can happen to anyone. Because it might be a mistake indeed and I don’t want to miss someone genuine just cause of a little flaw. But I never give third chances cause I don’t want to make a fool out of myself.
2. Helping others fulfill their dreams
Recently I did something which gave me utmost satisfaction. My grandma loves singing and she has always regretted that she couldn’t learn music. So I asked her to sing a song and recorded it and posted it on my Youtube channel. It has a few hundreds of views but that made my grandma happily contented and that made me feel good about myself as well.
3. Working for a minimal amount
Once I finished my college I’m stuck at home and I didn’t like it that way. I have tried everything humanly possible to get some work but nothing worked for some time. After some time I have found a job which pays very little (You wouldn’t imagine how little, littlest of little indeed) but still, I took the job because I know that I need work more than money at that time. Tho it’s a little-paid job I’ve put all my efforts into it. And I strongly believe that’s my turning point (not the time but my attitude for work and life). After that, I started this blog and now I’ve also started working with brands. *Knock on wood*
4. Thinking with heart
This is the best thing anyone can do. I believe, your mind may be puzzled at times but your heart is never wrong. So when in daze go with your instincts.
5. Empathetic mentality
Whenever something happens I have this habit of thinking from others point of view as well. Tho it hurts sometimes or leads to people taking me for granted, I’m glad I do that because you never know what’s happening on the other side.
6. Not regretting
I’m also a human and I used to regret many things but now, I’m not regretting anything, thankfully. I’m happy I’m past that phase. I don’t know what helped me through that, maybe faking it till I make it, but I’m just glad I did.
7. Loving and appreciating myself
This is something I have been doing since I gained my consciousness and my biggest confidence booster. If someone asks me what to do to be confident I’d only suggest this, to love and appreciate themselves. No other trick needed.
8. Learning from others experiences
What we can learn from our own experiences is just a little drop in the ocean when compared to what we can learn from others experience as well (including ours).

9. Never giving up on making life better
As I said before in this post, I have gone through a lot after I’m done with my college but I never gave up. I have tried everything from getting a job, taking up a new course, establishing a startup and lot more but nothing seemed to work that time, still, I didn’t give up. Then I started Nikki’s talk and see me now!
10. Book reading
I think everybody agrees with me here more than anything. I’m not used to book-reading before some years but now I enjoy it more than anything. That’s the only time I get to relax and be myself totally. I have also made a resolution for the coming year to read a minimum of 12 to 15 books.
