One of the websites I visit the most is Greatist.com.  The site has everything from great healthy recipes to interesting workouts you can do away from the gym.  An article that recently caught my attention was the one by Darius Foroux title; 25 Things About Life I Wish I Had Known 10 Years Ago.  Below is a little from the introduction of the article and a few of the things discussed in the article the resonated with me.  Click HERE for the full read.  

Socrates, considered one of the founders of Western philosophy, was once named the wisest man on earth by the Oracle of Delphi. When Socrates heard that the oracle had made such a comment, he believed that the statement was wrong.  Socrates said: “I know one thing: that I know nothing.”

What you will find below is a list of the most important things I learned from other people and books. Some of the lessons took me a long time to learn—but if I had had to learn these things all by myself, it would have taken me a lot longer.

We might learn things quickly, but we often forget them at the same rate—and sometimes we need to remind ourselves of what we’ve learned. Here are 25 of those reminders that others taught me.

Struggle is good.
Never say, “I can’t take it anymore.” Instead say, “bring it on!”

Don’t complain.
Complaining is the biggest waste of time there is. Either do something about it, or if you can’t, shut up about it.

Exercise daily.
I didn’t get this until recently. A healthy body is where you have to start everything in life. If you can’t build a healthy and strong body, what can you build in life?

Keep a journal.
No, keeping a journal is not for children. It helps you to become a better thinker and writer. “I don’t want to be a writer,” you might think. Well, how many emails and texts do you send a day? Everybody is a writer.

Be nice.
I don’t mean you should be a pushover. You can be someone that doesn’t take sh*t and be nice about it. Just don’t insult people, think you’re better than them, or act like an idiot.

Learn every day.
You’ve got to train your brain to stay alert. You don’t have to read a book a day to learn every day. Learn from your mistakes. Learn from the people around you—be open to what they can teach you.
