What one lesson could people learn from my life?

40 Questions We’re Afraid to Ask – #31

What one lesson could people learn from my life?What one lesson could people learn from my life?

“It’s not the events of our lives that shape us, but our beliefs as to what those events mean.” ~Anthony Robbins

Perhaps the question we need to ask before answering the question above is . . .  

What one lesson could I learn — or have I learned — from my own life?

Every single thing that happens in my life — every situation in which I find myself, every decision I make, every person I encounter, every relationship I experience, every loss, every gain, every tear, every laugh — is another lesson waiting to be learned.  It becomes part of the foundation of how I see life, the point from which I move forward — or not.

Through my experiences, how I respond to them and the meaning I give to them, I become an example to others . . .

. . . for good or bad, like it or not. I also become an example to myself as I meet the next challenge. If I keep my eyes and mind open, I have opportunities every single day to learn from my life, as well as to teach. But as I look back over my life up to this point, what one lesson could I pick out above all the rest that has had the greatest impact on my life?  What one lesson could others learn from my life? Hopefully it’s one by which others learn how to live with joy and passion, not with regret.
