Life is another name of a learning experience. From better to bitter,everything that  we come across has something to teach us.

Life is another name of a learning experience. From better to bitter,everything that we come across has something to teach us.

There must be times in your lives when you have felt frustrated, confused, or at times totally disillusioned. The trials and tribulations that you come across are the part of your lives which upon observing closely reveal that they have a purpose of making you stronger. Your life gives you lessons; lessons which in turn make you strong enough and allow you to grow better instead of being bitter. If you ponder over the some very important life lessons, you will notice they not only help you mature but also aid you to recognize the true abilities that you carry within your own self.

Below are some of the very important life lessons which help you grow into strong individuals.


As often stated by many people, life is a combination of many ups and downs. There are good days and bad days. It is not an easy thing to exist in a world where injustice, intolerance, and insanity prevails. Once you realize the fact that you have to wade your way through all the problems and dilemmas which life throws at you, your heart and mind automatically becomes stronger. You learn to live with the thought and at the same time you know whenever a certain difficult situation pops up right in front of you, you treat it in a manner and with an attitude of great strength and courage.


Success at every step is not part of the game, although everyone wishes it to be so. However the fact of life is that there is no chance that you get successful whatever comes your way. You might get success in one thing but the probability factor of succeeding in another may not be very high. Hundred percent success in each and everything is not possible. It is always better to accept this fact that either you will succeed or you will not. The coin turns for you which way, you never know. Those people who whole heartedly accept this fact and move with this thought in mind are stronger and accept the challenges that come their way with a positive approach.


Life is full of learning and lessons. No matter how much you learn, there is a lot which is still needed to be discovered or learn about. You really have to open yourself and gather the new information and knowledge to make advancements in the life ahead. No one can say that they “know it all”. There are more horizons out there to be discovered and till the moment you die, you cannot give up on the learning experience in order to grow into a stronger person.


People always say that live your life fully as if there is no tomorrow. This thing is very true and you must focus on the time which is spent wisely .This is because of the fact that you never know what awaits for you tomorrow and lies ahead for you. Learn to appreciate what you have and the moments spent daily. Live everyday like it is the first or the last.


It is not only the information about things and life that counts rather it is the experience which matters the most. You learn a lot about something till you experience it. You discover many more aspects of certain things while you go through it. It is not about only the philosophical understandings of life but the practical part is also something which matters. Important life lessons are realized through your experience.


No matter how much work you do, if it is not of any value to someone or even to yourself, you won’t be adding much to anything. You have to do something which is of valuable nature, which can be termed as a good contribution to people around you. You have to prove your worth in life with valuable little or big things you do.


A one big fact which you need to realize is that you can’t have it all. It is true that human wants are never ending but there will always be someone else out there who will possess more than you. It is not only about the material things, but it can be the knowledge, the experience, the good attitude, anything that you have, the next person can be at a better place than you. So in order to be strong you must learn that it is all about your journey and your dedication. The other things with other people don’t matter much.


Another important life lesson that makes us stronger is the realization of fact that you cannot change whatever has happened in past. You must understand the basic philosophy of everything happens for a reason and you have to move ahead with all the experiences gained in past. Living or thinking about past may not be very helpful. You will always have to look ahead and move on. A new beginning is something which is desirable and not the ending that you have left behind.


Your life is about how you feel and react to your own self. It is said that happiness comes from within. So your happiness is purely dependent on you. It is your own self who can make you what you are. External factors surely play a significant role in effecting your moods and approach but if you realize a fact that your happiness and the good feeling is solely dependent on yourself, then you might be able to live and survive in this world with clear thought and mind.


Another important thing to realize is that there will always be someone who will think differently from you. It is not necessary that everyone you encounter will appreciate whatever you do and whatever you think. You have to understand the fact that you have to do what you feel yourself is important and concentrate on what you do. Difference of opinion will always be there and you have to accept it with an open minded approach.


Getting what you want is not always possible. There may be a big NO for you and you have to accept the fact in order to stay stronger. You may get confused, angry, shocked, or even bewildered .But you have to understand one thing that things always work out for you the best. Believe in this theory and keep this life lesson with you to stay strong. Whatever happens to you in your life, you have to appreciate what you already possess and be content with that.


Last but not the least, it is you who is important. You have your own individual identity and to put on fake faces or act according to what people desire from you is not what counts. Your own comfort with things is what matters. Strength comes from within your own self and you can only stay strong if you be who you are. You have to feel good about yourself, trust, and respect your own self and ultimately you will discover a more solid personality that lies within you.

God gives us life lessons for our better personal development to make us stronger. As a result, we learn and mature from our experiences and get disciplined which is the main objective of our existence. When we show an attitude of learning through our life lessons, the stress and struggles do not appear difficult to face. Consequently the results and directions of our decisions do not go in a wrong direction when we learn to stay strong in whatever comes our way. As “Helen keller” very rightly said,

“The struggle of life is one of our greatest blessings. It makes us patient, sensitive and Godlike. It teaches us that although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of overcoming it”

Your's life is only preciseness to you.Others who tells you that they care,then u should know that there is something in his/her mind.You have to make a goal and you have to reach the goal.While performing the work,u should keep in mind,that u are alone & you have to reach the Goal alone.Don't think that u can't do the work properly,it is the self-confidence which will help u to get full strength.I am telling u,because i have achieved the goal by my self-confidence & inner strength

Hi Kris ...Thank you for you're always appreciation :) Learning about failure as part of the whole game is something which is very important only then we can move on well with our lives. Although i wish to have as much perseverance as Thomas Edison but ahhh well...:):)

Thank you for stopping by and sharing this Hub as well :)

Kris Heeter from Indiana on January 30, 2012:

Very nice:) These are definitely some big lessons. One of the ones that I think is most hard for some is "failure" and recognizing that it's how we learn and grow stronger. Every time I feel that perhaps I've failed, I have to remind myself that Thomas Edison failed something like 1000 times in trying to invent the light bulb. Where would we be if he had given up after 10 tries!?!

Nice hub and I'll share this with my other followers:)
