The older generation have wisdom and experience to share.

I was reading a poster which contained many one-line statements from senior citizens. Some were funny, some serious, some contained life provoking insights.  Over the next couple of posts, I’ll share some of them with you.

Lesson One: “I’ve learned that most of the things I worry about never happen.”

We often go around expecting the worst in a situation.  How often did we come out the other side saying “that wasn’t so bad.”  Why don’t we learn to change our mindset and give ourselves some space and less worry.

Lesson Two: “I’ve learned that every great achievement was once considered impossible.”

Sometimes, we are called to do hard and difficult things that seem to be impossible.  This, again, is a mindset attitude.  We are so prone to limiting thoughts and beliefs.  If you recognise yourself here, then it’s time to make some changes.  There are plenty of sites that you can go to to move you on.  I’ve listed two below you might like to visit, but there are plenty of others.

Affirm your Life

Lesson Three:  I’ve learned that if there were no problems there would be no opportunities.”

Dealing with problems challenges people to make decisions, to re-vision, to change direction, and to change their mindset.  New opportunities will always present themselves, when problems are faced head on.  Seeing the opportunities is one thing, taking them on is another.  Take a hint from Lesson Two above.

So what one-line life lesson would you share?

I also build up, train and encourage others to achieve more than they thought possible.
