How To Instantly Live A Better Life By Learning From It

It takes time to understand how to live and to know yourself.


Life is an incredible experience and I sincerely wish that each human living on this planet right now had the chance to truly live it.

Step by step. Faillure after Faillure. Success after success.

We understand how to live. We understand ourself. We understand what we love, what we do and why we live. It is a full time experience that we can only feel by living it years after years.

We learn it

We have to go out of our comfort zone in order to learn new things. And doing hat we are initially afraid of is one of the most important tools if you want to succeed in life because you can’t simply stop learning.

The world is evolving and you have to update your knowledge!

So, we have to try new things, try a new book, a new online course, a new way to come back home (yep). And this is by performing on a daily basis that you will learn to learn!

Once you know how to learn, once you get the big scheme of the learning process, you are able to acknowledge your brain much better and much faster than ever.

But it takes a lot of time to understand everything. We won’t know how to learn within weeks and months. It is with years that we manage to get better at it.

We try it

Once you’ve learnt something, you absolutely need to put it in practice. It is the best way to fully understand what you’ve learnt.

So we test ideas and concepts.

We try new things.

And we fail.


Because it is part of the test and learn thing. In order to understand and get used to something new, you will most of the time (99.9% actually) fail on the first tries. And it is normal!

I love to take the example of a child who’s learning how to walk. At first, she learns it, she’s acknowledging herself by watching others walking. And then, she tries. But she won’t succeed first, and it may take several weeks for her to fully understand the process, to be used to it. And it’s normal.

Failure is part of the learning. Failure is part of the success.

There is no light without dark.

So we must try everyday in order to learn more.

Without actions, you can’t do anything.

And your ideas mean nothing without execution.

And no action doesn’t necessarily means not to act, it also means not evolving with our time. Because we are all taking actions everyday, but these actions we are taking may be the same we were using 2, 5 or even 10 years before!

In order to succeed, to evolve everyday, we need to take new actions, learn new things.

We have to learn the new knowledge of our time in order to understand it and to work with it!

We live it

Once we are learning and trying everyday, it creates powerful habits. And theses habits become part of ourselves, of our life.

We live with them.

Is it enough?


It is as simple as that.

Don’t do complicated things, don’t overthink, just put actions everyday.

When you have strong and powerful habits, you will start seeing huge results in your life. It won’t happen overnight, but it will slowly happen.

And one day, you will realize that you are actually living the life you wanted to live months or years ago.

Nothing happens quickly. It takes a lot of patience. And we all have to realize that we are still young in this world (yes, even you!). It doesn’t end once we are 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100 !

As long as you breathe, you live. And getting older isn’t a good reason to stop dreaming.

Stay patient. And I can promise you right now that if you have daily strong habits and are truly happy with your life, nothing can stop you.

I’ve thought about it, when I was writting the sentence above. Maybe you have already achieved what you wanted for so many years. Because you are happy and have a lifestyle you deeply enjoy.

We teach it

And the final step: we have to teach what we learn.

This step is essential if you want to live a happy life because it brings so many things.

The best thing in life is to give.

Give as much as you can.

This advice is valuable for anything in life, wether it is for your business or your happniess.

If you give, without any expectations from others, just because you want to and because you love it.

Life gives to the giver and takes from the taker.

Give what you know and always be kind and true with people.

In this way, others will give you back so much than what you could’ve ever expected.


Life is a full experience with so many possibilities and events, it has so many things to offer you day after day. But life won’t never wait for you.

It is your job to make the first step and truly live your life.

Please realize that we only live once and in front of the death it’s going to be too late to think about “I should’ve…” or “If only I knew…”

Make your life incredible, full of experiences, truly live and be happy.
