7 great lessons that you can learn from Helen Keller
It is a constant reminder that anything is possible.
Despite her circumstances Helen Keller was a world-renowned author, activist and spokesman. One of its many benefits, the first deafblind person to be to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree. I believe that we can learn a lot from Helen.
Below are 7 Life Lessons from Helen Keller:
1. Go to your dreams
"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature. To avoid danger is no safer in the long run than exposure completely."
I often say to people go after their dreams and turn them into reality. My skeptic would say: "That's unrealistic," ... but what's the point of being "realistic." Nothing great was ever been achieved by a "realist."
Albert Einstein was not a realist, the Wright brothers were not realists, Thomas Edison was not
Realist, and Alexander Graham Bell was certainly not a realist.
What is "realistic" but accepted the self-imposed limitations of the company? Remove the borders; go after your dreams. In the infamous words of Paris Hilton, "life is too short to blend." Chase your dream, as it is the last bus of the night.
2. You need a vision
"It is a terrible thing to see and have no vision!"
Do you have a vision, a goal, a plan, a mission for your life? Isaiah wrote, without a vision the people perish. Great leaders are always great visionaries, they have an internal picture of where you go; their fixed on their vision. What is your vision?
3. Nothing is impossible
"We can, we want to do do anything, if we keep it long enough"
The beauty of "time" is that one can achieve almost anything if you hold it long enough. Set your mind on what you want to achieve, and do not stop until you get there. They say the utility of the stamp is its ability to remain a while before he gets there. Learn from the stamp; remain to committed to your dream, until you get there.
4. The experience is priceless
"Life is a series of lessons that are understood to be lived."
Knowledge is good, but the experience is invaluable. Learn from all life lessons! Never be afraid to get your hands dirty by to get some first-hand experience. Only experience can bring full understanding.
5. Focus on the Positive
"Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it."
Although we could focus on the negative things around us, it does not make a lot of good to us. Helen Keller said, "Keep your face to the sunshine and you will never see the shadow." I think this is good advice. Decide to see the glass as "half full", things are not getting worse, they are getting better!
6. Hang out with winners
"As they say today, it can not be done, it was done."
Winners hang-out with the winners. hang out with negative people will not be caught. Negative people are like "Vampire" she what around them to suck the life out of everything. They are always saying, "as you can not see why you can not, and how you are going to fail if you try." If you depend too long with these "chicken", you will remember that you have the ability, as an eagle in the air. Decide to spend time with those who is the impossible, to believe.
7. Your destiny is in your hands
"What I look for is not" out there ", it is in me"
Everything you need to succeed, you already have on the inside of you. Shakespeare wrote, blaming dear Brutus is not in our stars that we are underlings, but in ourselves. The success is yours for the taking, but you have to believe it, and you must be convinced that you deserve it ,
"One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to rise." - Helen Keller
