30 Remarkable Things In Life That You Don’t Realize

30 Remarkable Things In Life That You Don’t Realize

There are many remarkable things in life that go unnoticed and can change our normal life dramatically. Understanding and considering these hidden things not only allows us to experience the world in a different fashion, but provides us the vision to identify the realities that are unfolding in our surroundings. In other words, identifying these remarkable things in life can lead us to an achievement, a great win and pleasure in life.

So pay attention on the activities in your life. Each day you can either remorse or celebrate; it is your choice. Here are 30 remarkable things in life.

1. Pursue and work through life’s great challenges

Great challenges make life interesting. It does not matter what is going to take place; always give your best and smile. You can never enjoy your life if you don’t enjoy your challenges.

2. Experience the freedom of acceptance

The key to happiness and peace is accepting every situation in your life. Start accepting yourself with paying consideration to all those superb abilities and qualities that make you who you are. It is about being open to everything in life, knowing that everything has a value whether you like it or not.

3. Sincerely appreciate life

Appreciate life, even when it’s not perfect. Happiness does not come with the things we desire, but an appreciation for what we have. Always try to remain positive; you will find something to be thankful for.

4. Walk in your own shoes

We all face abnormal situations in our life and we all are strange in some way. What sets you apart might give an impression of a liability or problem, but you don’t need to be embarrassed. These are the things that will make you grow prosperously.

5. Listen to your inner voice

Generally your mind yearns longer to accept what your heart is suggesting. Listening intuitively will always lead you down the right track.

6. Align what you do with who you are

Make the rest of your life the best of your life. Your life will become pleasant and happier when you are in alignment with your higher Self, and your body reflects this. Everything falls on progress and you feel satisfied.

7. Express your ideas, perspectives and skills

Shout out your unique ideas and make a difference in the world. If you want to be different from the world than you must be brave enough to demonstrate it.

8. Design your own life, your own way

It does not matter how you live, your life is your own. You have the right to spend your life doing the things you love to do. Live YOUR dreams and be sure YOU aren’t the one who is dissatisfied in the end.

9. Work hard on something you like

Toil becomes simple once your work becomes your passion. Never undervalue the worth of finding passion in your work.

10. Live your dreams

Always try to live every single moment of your life and give a fair chance to your dreams. A dream can never come true unless you won’t give up and offer an effort.

11. Reflect on your courage

When you are nervous and terrified in a difficult situation, but you take the next step in any case, that shows the bravery inside you as a person.

12. Conquer fear

Fear is a sentiment, not a statement. To increase power and self-confidence, you must do the things what you are afraid to do. Dare to bounce yourself.

13. Be courageous enough to grow and evolve

It takes courage to cultivate and become someone you really want to be. Don’t be afraid of the change happening to you. You might lose something worthy, but you might also gain something pronounced.

14. Patience will finally pay off

Patience is not the capability to hold your fire, but how you will react and how strongly you are eager to work while you’re waiting for your work to pay back.

15. Make the impossible possible

In most scenarios, impossible is an opinion or judgment. Almost everything is possible if you are passionate about it and have got enough time and enough courage to do any task.

16. Find reasons to impress yourself

Spend less effort to influence others and more time to impress yourself. Scramble a peak to see the world, not so the world can see you.

17. Stand up for yourself

Mostly we get hurt, not due to the torture or violence of others, but due to our own silence. You should stand up for yourself and make an impression of the illusion of superiority.

18. Connections make you a better person

Having a few loyal friends is better than have more friends in numbers. Keep a close and strong connection with those people who make you better, and cherish each instant of your time together.

19. Know deep down that you truly matter to someone else

One day you will be just a memory to some people. To live in the minds of the people forever, do your best to be a Manifest.

20. Intimately and truly love

The more intimate you are, the less innocuous you feel and the more valuable is your relationship. True love is about how much you actually love each other every day.

21. Follow through with your promises

If there is no commitment in a relationship, there are only empty promises and hopes – with no future plans or results.  Remember, commitment needs loyalty and a promise to be with each other in every odd situation.

22. Help someone who needs your kindness

Those who are toughest to love commonly need your help the most. So treat each person with compassion, even those who are insolent.

23. Know you did the right thing

Real honesty is doing the right thing, knowing that not even one person will know whether you did it or not.

24. Compromise with someone special

Sometimes we have to behave against our principles, not because we are in the wrong direction, but because we value our relationship more than our vanity.

25. Experience the freedom of letting go

Forgetting your past and living the current moment is your first step toward contentment. So start over again every day and build a solid groundwork.

26. Become a parent

When you are a mother or father, you will discover hidden strengths inside you and concealed power of dealing with fears.

27. Grow through failure

Remember, determination of doing a task defines a person, not the result of the task. Failure is an opportunity to learn from your mistakes and rise again, better than before.

28. Don’t give up

Don’t give up, keep moving and keep fighting. Sometimes you have to face the worst to get the best.

29. Try exciting new beginnings

Every story has an end, however in life every ending is just a new beginning. Consider every day, every task, any challenge as a new opportunity.

30. Experience the nimble feeling of being a beginner

Remember there is no one jump to becoming perfect or great. Always try to give your best and learn until you know better.  When you have learned better, do better.

How To Spot Fake People (And Ways To Deal With Them)

How To Spot Fake People (And Ways To Deal With Them)

They say we are the average of the five persons we spend the most time with. For a minute, consider the people around you. Are they truly who your “tribe” should be or who you aspire to become in the future? Are they really genuine people who want to see you succeed? Or are they fake people who don’t really want to see you happy?

In this article, I’ll review why it is important to surround yourself with genuine individuals—the ones who care, bring something to our table, and first and foremost, who leave all fakeness behind.

How to Spot Fake People?

When you’ve been working in the helping professions for a while, spotting fake people gets a bit easier. There are some very clear signs that the person you are looking at is hiding something, acting somehow, or simply wanting to get somewhere. Most often, there is a secondary gain—perhaps attention, sympathy, or even a promotion.

Whatever it is, you’re better off working their true agenda and staying the hell away. Here are some things you should look out for to help spot fake people.

1. Full of Themselves

Fake people like to show off. They love looking at themselves in the mirror. They collect photos and videos of every single achievement they had and every part of their body and claim to be the “best at what they do.”

Most of these people are actually not that good in real life. But they act like they are and ensure that they appear better than the next person. The issue for you is that you may find yourself always feeling “beneath” them and irritated at their constant need to be in the spotlight.

2. Murky in Expressing Their Emotions

Have you ever tried having a deep and meaningful conversation with a fake person? It’s almost impossible. It’s because they have limited emotional intelligence and don’t know how they truly feel deep down—and partly because they don’t want to have their true emotions exposed, no matter how normal these might be.

It’s much harder to say “I’m the best at what I do” while simultaneously sharing “average” emotions with “equal” people.

3. Zero Self-Reflection

To grow, we must accept feedback from others. We must be open to our strengths and to our weaknesses. We must accept that we all come in different shapes and can always improve.

Self-reflection requires us to think, forgive, admit fault, and learn from our mistakes. But to do that, we have to be able to adopt a level of genuineness and depth that fake people don’t routinely have. A fake person generally never apologizes, but when they do, it is often followed with a “but” in the next breath.

4. Unrealistic Perceptions

Fake people most often have an unrealistic perception of the world—things that they want to portray to others (pseudo achievements, materialistic gains, or a made-up sense of happiness) or simply how they genuinely regard life outside themselves.

A lot of fake people hide pain, shame, and other underlying reasons in their behavior. This could explain why they can’t be authentic and/or have difficulties seeing their environment for the way it objectively is (both good and bad).

5. Love Attention

As I mentioned earlier, the biggest sign that something isn’t quite right with someone’s behavior can be established by how much they love attention. Are you being interrupted every time you speak by someone who wants to make sure that the spotlight gets reverted back to them? Is the focus always on them, no matter the topic? If yes, you’re probably dealing with a fake person.

6. People Pleaser

Appreciation feels nice but having everyone like you is even better. While it is completely unrealistic for most people to please everyone all the time, fake people seem to always say yes in pursuit of constant approval.

Now, this is a problem for two reasons. Firstly, these people are simply saying yes to things for their own satisfaction. Secondly, they often end up changing their minds or retracting their offer for one reason or another (“I would have loved to, but my grandmother suddenly fell ill.”), leaving you in the lurch for the 100th time this year.

7. Sarcasm and Cynicism

Behind the chronic pasted smile, fake people are well known for brewing resentment, jealousy, or anger. This is because, behind the postcard life, they are often unhappy. Sarcasm and cynicism are well known to act as a defense mechanism, sometimes even a diversion—anything so they can remain feeling on top of the world, whether it is through boosting themselves or bringing people down.

8. Crappy friend

Fake people are bad friends. They don’t listen to you, your feelings, and whatever news you might have to share. In fact, you might find yourself migrating away from them when you have exciting or bad news to share, knowing that it will always end up one way—their way. In addition, you might find that they’re not available when you truly need them or worse, cancel plans at the last minute.

It’s not unusual to hear that a fake person talks constantly behind people’s backs. Let’s be honest, if they do it to others, they’re doing it to you too. If your “friend” makes you feel bad constantly, trust me, they’re not achieving their purpose, and they’re simply not a good person to have around.

The sooner you learn to spot these fake people, the sooner you can meet meaningful individuals again.

How to Cope With Fake People Moving Forward?

It is important to remind yourself that you deserve more than what you’re getting. You are worthy, valuable, precious, and just as important as the next person.

There are many ways to manage fake people. Here are some tips on how to deal with them.

Advertising

1. Boundaries

Keep your boundaries very clear. As explained in the book Unlock Your Resilience, boundaries are what keep you sane when the world tries to suffocate you. When fake people become emotional vampires, make sure to keep your distances, limit contact, and simply replace them with more valuable interactions.

2. Don’t Take Their Behavior Personally

Sadly, they most likely have behaved this way before they knew you and will continue much longer after you have moved on. It isn’t about you. It is about their inner need to meet a void that you are not responsible for. And in all honesty, unless you are a trained professional, you are unlikely to improve it anyway.

3. Be Upfront and Honest About How You Feel

If your “friend” has been hurtful or engaged in behaviors you struggle with, let them know—nicely, firmly, however you want, but let them know that they are affecting you. If it works, great. If it doesn’t, you’ll feel better and when you’re ready to move on, you’ll know you tried to reach out. Your conscience is clear.

4. Ask for Advice

If you’re unsure about what you’re seeing or feeling, ask for advice. Perhaps a relative, a good friend, or a colleague might have some input as to whether you are overreacting or seeing some genuine concerns.

Now, don’t confuse asking for advice with gossiping behind the fake person’s back because, in the end, you don’t want to stoop down to their level. However, a little reminder as to how to stay on your own wellness track can never hurt.

5. Dig Deeper

Now, this one, I offer with caution. If you are emotionally strong, up to it, guaranteed you won’t get sucked into it, and have the skills to manage, perhaps you could dig into the reasons a fake person is acting the way they do.

Have they suffered recent trauma? Have they been rejected all their lives? Is their self-esteem so low that they must resort to making themselves feel good in any way they can? Sometimes, having an understanding of a person’s behavior can help in processing it.

6. Practice Self-Care!

Clearly, putting some distance between the fake person and yourself is probably the way to go. However, sometimes, it takes time to get there. In the meantime, make sure to practice self-care, be gentle with yourself, and compensate with lots of positives!

Self-care can be as simple as taking a hot shower after talking to them or declining an invitation when you’re not feeling up to the challenge.

Spotting fake people isn’t too hard. They generally glow with wanna-be vibes. However, most often, there are reasons as to why they are like this. Calling their behavior might be the first step. Providing them with support might be the second. But if these don’t work, it’s time to stay away and surround yourself with the positivity that you deserve.

Final Thoughts

Remember that life is a rollercoaster. It has good moments, tough moments, and moments you wouldn’t change for the world. So, look around and make sure that you take the time to choose the right people to share it all with.

We are the average of the five people we spend the most time with, so take a good look around and choose wisely!
