53 Suggestions From Wise People To Have An Extraordinary Life

I recall reading somewhere, ‘A smart man learns from his mistakes. A wise one learns from the mistakes of others.’ Awakening!

Mistakes are necessary to progress in life. But if we can learn from other’s mistakes, it is divine. There are three points I think I did follow in my life:

  1. Observe how others are doing in their profession. What are they doing that can be beneficial to me if I apply the same?
  2. Never feel afraid of seeking help. If I face any problem in my profession, I look for help from other professionals working in my field.
  3. Try not to break promises. Keeping promises develop the character, and people can trust you when you are in need.

I have taken life suggestions many times. I still keep seeking the advice! Nothing defeats the books. Vera Nazarian, an American-Russian writer, amazingly said: 

Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.

Nowadays, people do not believe in the advice until they do mistakes and learn. It is only because advice is free. So people like motivational speakers and coaches charge fees. That is absolutely reasonable. People value things after paying the price for it.

Suggestions create a roadmap in our life. For a high-quality life, you must listen to the high-quality suggestions.

I’ve collected some of the best suggestions from books and web to help you live an extraordinary life. I hope it may help you. If you like it, share it with your friends.

The best of the advice I’ve ever implemented in my own life is an old adage, ‘Whether you believe you can do a thing or not, you are right.’ In September 1947 “The Reader Digest” published the quotation. Still, researchers are confused whether it is originally crafted by Henry Ford or not. But that does not really matter.

What really concerns is do we really believe that we can see the change in our life? I don’t know. What I know is a firm commitment to the goals can make every individual an extraordinary being. In short, committing, planning, acting and repeating is the key to your successful life.
