10 Life Lessons Most of Us Learn Too Late

Every year, I learn something new. It’s a process I love, and this habit of learning has made me wiser. The more we know, the more successful we become as people.

Here are ten lessons in life that most people (including myself) learn far too late.

Without good health, your wealth is only meaningful to your kids. Never sacrifice your health for money unless that sacrifice is temporary or necessary to keep the lights on and food on the table.

Health Is More Important Than Wealth

“Hard work” wins the race, right? Well, not exactly. While there’s nothing wrong with working hard, we also need to ensure we’re working on the right things. And that’s where working smart comes into play — working smart means spending time on tasks that matter.

Working Smart > Working Hard

To get rich, we need to put our money at risk. Money will never grow when we keep it in a checking or savings account. Instead, investing in appreciating assets like stocks and real estate is how money grows on its own.

Risk Builds Wealth

Take Risks (Especially Early in Life)

Like money, we tend to grow as people when we take risks. Playing it safe might avoid failures, but it also keeps us from achieving our full potential. And when we use failures as a learning opportunity, our mistakes are often our best teachers.

Failures make us more experienced people. Wiser. When we make mistakes and learn from them, we know what not to do next time.

Don’t Be Afraid of Failure

Flexibility Is Key

Instead of taking a hard stance on every little thing, flexibility will help us confront more challenges and learn about ourselves (and life) more naturally.
