You're asked to give a classroom of ten year old children three relevant points of wisdom - What are they and why?
I'm sure if I had known what I know today, I would have been better off than I am today. It's not that I am not doing well for myself or that I won't get better with time or get to where I wish to be in life.
But If I had known what I know now, if I was given a head start early in life at a very tender age, I would not make some of the mistakes I made growing up.
Now I'll be speaking from my own side of the world because I am hoping that if I am to be in a class field with 10 year olds and I am to give them advice, then it might be a class from my country. Now my advice or relevant words of wisdom to them will be from my experience of life in my country.
So if I were to give a class field of 10 year olds advice on relevant wisdom that will help them in life, the following advice that I have learned from experience is what I would give them:
1 Don't wait for someone; don't ever in life wait for help; don't rely too much on people and their promises because no one is coming to save you. This life you're living is one hundred percent your own responsibility. No matter the background you are from, whether you are from a comfortable background, a wealthy background, or a background that isn't any of the latter, It is still one hundred percent your responsibility to make your life the way you wish it to be.
You are the key to creating the world you so desire, to following your dreams, and to choosing that career. So don't let anyone stop you from being who you want to be. Remember, at the end of the day, you will be the only one to live with your regrets. Stay focused!.
2 Making the world a better place starts with you, no matter how small. It starts with the little kindness you show to the ones around you, like your classmates, your age mate, your friends, two strangers, family, and friends. Making the world a better place starts with that single act of kindness you show when nobody is watching. When everybody engages in this act, definitely, gradually or even swiftly, we are contributing our own quota and making the world a better place to live in. A place filled with love, a place filled with kindness, and a place filled with peace of mind for the whole world at large
3 Don't stop learning! Whatever you do in life, don't stop learning!. Don't stop trying new things. It is hundred percent okay to make mistakes; it is okay to fail. In fact, it's most times it is through these experiences that we learn and grow the most.
But where it is bad is when you fail, and you stop trying, you stop learning from your mistakes, you stop learning to be better at what you want to do.
