1. RESPECT YOURSELF
I believe that respecting yourself is the absolute prerequisite to making the most out of your life. When you love and respect yourself enough, you would never want to waste your life on negative vices such as drugs. You would instead be more prone to making effort to making your life a meaningful one.
2. BE PRESENT
In order to live fully, you must be present in your daily living. Being present means being present in mind, body and spirit. This enables you to truly live life and as a result, gain appreciation for what you experience each day.
3. SEIZE OPPORTUNITIES
How often have you heard of the expression, “Carpe diem”? To make the most out of your life, you do not just seize the day, but you also understand that nothing is ever too late in life and therefore, you should seize any opportunities that arise. So, never be afraid to live and seize that opportunity before you now!
4. CREATE VALUE
Creation is key. Life is a creative process, so do not limit yourself by following and living other people’s lives. Instead, be creative and be willing to experiment so you could create value for yourself and your life by doing what brings the most meaning to you.
5. DELAYED GRATIFICATION
The truth is you always reap the rewards of what you sow. A lot of things come with consistent hard work. Therefore be patient and eventually all your hard work will pay off.
6. APPRECIATE YOUR LOVED ONES
Be appreciative of your loved ones and never forget your roots. No one lives forever. Show your care and love to those that matter while they are still alive so you would not live with regrets when they are gone.
7. DO GOOD AND GIVE BACK
There is an unspoken law of taking and giving in the universe. In order to make the most out of your life, you should always remember to be compassionate. So always do good and give something back, especially to those who are in need.
