Are you wasting your life experiences?

When you go through an experience, whether positive or negative, do not take it casually, else you will lose the essence.  Each experience you go through in life is designed to teach you something new, a lesson that would strengthen you for things coming ahead either for your benefit or that of others.

As you go through an experience, whether in your private life, career or business, ask yourself this question – “what can I learn from this experience?” Don’t just discover the answer to the question, be deliberate in applying the lessons in order to be a better you going forward.

How do you apply those lessons? Do so by determining what you need to stop doing or start doing.

If you are not able to apply the lessons gained from the experiences you go through in life, then you would have suffered in vain, and of all men most miserable.

Do not allow the experiences you will go through in 2018 become a waste. Resolve to apply the lessons for the good of others and yourself.
