The idea of those tips popped up when I was on the way to drop my daughter to school. Simply just to remind my 11th years daughter about life and how to deal it with based on my own experiences.

Those 5 tips on how to have the life you want really simples tip yet not easy to do it in applications.  

1. Faith

Why do we need faith?

“To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.” — Thomas Aquinas

Faith, at its core, is deep-rooted in the expectation of good things to come. It goes beyond hope.  While much of hope lives in the mind, faith is steeped in the heart and the spirit. It can’t be explained away by reason or logic, or be understood through a single dimension.

2.  Self Confidence

Confidence is attractive. It breeds opportunity. It makes us stand our ground and assert our worth. Confidence in yourself is infectious – it inspires others to believe in you – and can be self fulfilling.

3.  Willingness to learn

Knowledge can be acquired and skill-sets developed anywhere – learning is unavoidable and happens all the time. However, lifelong learning is about creating and maintaining a positive attitude to learning both for personal and professional development.

4. Making mistakes as much as you can

You can only learn from a mistake after you admit you‘ve made it. … Admission of a mistake, even if only privately to yourself, makes learning possible by moving the focus away from blame assignment and towards understanding. Wise people admit their mistakes easily. They know progress accelerates when they do.

5. Never Give Up!

Whether you realize or not, the fact is that every single day is a challenge. Only most of the days, the challenges are rather easy and surmountable thus you do not notice or even if you notice, you don’t complain.

In fact, we do need challenges to stay active, smart and in shape. The proper response to challenges should be to turn them around and go through them. Every successful person has done and so can you. In your daily lives, at work or at home, there are plenty of times when you have to successfully and boldly lead from the front. Under such conditions, it is not easy to Give Up!
