What are your most rewarding life experiences? Here is a list of 60 things that others have said are their most rewarding experiences. Things which, when mastered, are life changing. Check out the list below and get inspired, add your favorites to your personal list and then cross them off one by one as you go!
1. Master your emotions
Nobody likes grumpy people who drag other people down. Over the time you will learn to master your emotions and you tend to no longer get upset over little (mostly unimportant) things. Your goal should be to lift people up by your sheer presence instead of dragging them down because you feel like they owe you something. Master your own emotions first and then use your happy attitude to help others to do the same. This should be on your bucket list now and you should work on it every day.
2. Take care of your body
Eat good and healthy. Just be curious about it. Try to limit the toxic stuff you put into your body, because you actually care about it. Learn to value health over instant and short-term pleasure provided by fast food, sugary candy and alcohol. Finally get in shape and get the body you really want for yourself. You don’t have to go super crazy here and become the next Mr. or Mrs. Olympic but just take care over your body, because you only have one (and you might want it for several years to last).
3. Learn to apologize
Show strength by admitting your mistakes and wrongdoings. Don’t act all cool and tough. If you messed up, stand your ground and admit that you screwed up. People value this kind of behavior.
4. Forgive the people who treated you poorly
There is nothing more refreshing than to sincerely forgive somebody. It allows you to get rid of the anger and it frees up your mind. It enables you to allow new better stuff to enter your life. If you keep holding on to the people who treated you disrespectfully because you think they owe you an apology you might use up a lot of your own energy and nobody is helped here. Just forgive them and move on.
5. Also, make peace with yourself
Don’t forget to do the same with yourself. Be nice to yourself. Everyday.
6. Learn how to appreciate being alone
There is power in spending time with yourself and really finding out how you work and tick.
7. Question your convictions
Think about all the stuff you believed was true when you were 10 years old and now you know is completely wrong. Think about all the stuff people in general believed to be true like 100-200 years ago. Don’t you think that you might be wrong about something right now as well? Learn to be open-minded and non-judgmental to other people’s opinions and ideas. This way magical connections and things might happen.
8. Get rid of the emotional baggage
If something is holding you back, learn to get rid of it. Time is valuable and better spent “unchained”.
9. Be curious about people
Be interested in people. Often, the people interested in others are the most interesting people themselves. Become one of these people. Learn to listen and learn something new from everybody you meet. Everybody can teach you something. They have x years of their own, unique life experience which you don’t have.
10. Work on your relationships
Make it a habit to deepen your relationships and constantly bring them to the next level.
11. Love deeply (and mean it)
It is rewarding in itself, but it also comes around.
12. Deepen your adventurous side
Adventurous have more cool stories to tell. Become one of them!
13. Swim naked
In the best case under the crystal clear sky.
14. Sail continuously for three days and nights on the open ocean
You can combine that with the one point above.
15. Expose yourself to new stimuli
Always expand your mind and try new things.
