20 Things You Won’t Learn in School

One of my great clients who is an active follower of Frontdive Fitness and absolutely loves any and all motivational/inspirational material brought this on for me.  The lady who came up with this was a successful business woman who left it all to pursue her passion in writing and teaching.  She thinks that textbooks are slowing down her students and the reality is that most of what we learn in life doesn’t come from textbooks, or even a classroom.  She believes in letting her students out early but with the condition that they must play and loves watching her students grasp a new concept or have a breakthrough on a tough topic.  I love the way this lady views life and all of her ideas.  I do believe our kids can benefit a lot from being able to figure out problems on their own and not having to memorize old useless material that they will forget just as quickly as it goes in.  Without further ado, I give to you 20 life lessons you won’t learn in school.

  1. Imagination is more valuable than knowledge.
  2. Do the opposite of what you  are taught in school.
  3. Put yourself wholeheartedly into everything you do.
  4. You can train your brain to see the good in everybody and everything.
  5. Never doubt your instincts.
  6. The more you play, the better your work will be.
  7. People forget what you say, but they’ll never forget how you make them feel.
  8. Question everything and settle for nothing.
  9. Don’t make excuses or complain; it keeps you from accessing your true potential.
  10. If you feel stuck, ask for help.
  11. Wisdom comes from life experience, not textbooks.
  12. It’s never too late to start over.
  13. Don’t be attached to anything.
  14. If you believe you can, you will.
  15. Trust the process.
  16. You are right where you need to be.
  17. Your focus determines your reality.
  18. The magic happens outside of your comfort zone; go there daily.
