wow, great question. Why hasn't any one responded yet. Perhaps that are pondering on the appropriate way in which to respond. #1. Allah is One. God is one, and there is only One God, none is like him. #2. I can learn for ever. Learning is a life long journey. #3. Failure is not due to not reaching one's goals, its not ever trying in the first place. If you try , you have succeeded.

The number one thing I have learned in life is to never get yourself so far into debt that you can't afford to enjoy life. Life is to short to spend it working just to pay bills and not have any fun. I know so many people that are so far in debt that they work and come home and that is it. The second thing of great importance is don't take your loved ones for granted. I lost a husband to cancer when he was in his early thirties. I had a son that was born premature which taught me that even though we think our children should out live us they don't always. Lucky for me my son is healthy and doing great. Some parents I know were not so lucky. Never take anyone you love for granted. The third thing I have learned is God Loves me, Guides me and protects me. No matter how hard I tried to deny him he would not let me. He showed me that he was here for me.

This is an excellent question. I tried to think of the 3 top things and can't narrow it down. So the number one thing that I learned it that life is a precious gift, don't take it for granted. Everything else just falls under that.

1. Communication is key to any relationship, strike that, HONEST communication is key to any relationship, be it with your spouse, business partner, or friend. 2. You can't change what other people feel or think about you. 3. Sometimes life just sucks, get over it and move on, and for God sake, don't tell the entire world every time you have a problem, you look like a fool and they really don't care. Do us all a favor and lay off the Drama Thanks

Other than the regular things that we all learn, thre are certain things I learnt the hard way The First being " A Friend in need is a friend indeed":-When all my chips were down and I had no where to go and all ws lost, it was my friends who came forward to help me, expecting nothing in retur. The Second being "Never judge a person by their exterior looks ":- I was deceived and cheated by a person who looked absolutely innocent and harmless to deal with. The third most important being " Keep your faith in God and he will be here for you" : I have had so many instances in which I have sought ways out of difficult situations and he has guided me.

The three Important things that I've learned in life are 1. To learn something you must learn not to learn other things first. 2. Ignorance maybe bliss but learning is fulfillment. 3. There is always a lot more to learn.

It means that in order for you to learn something you shouldn't let your previous learnings get in the way of it. Accept your new learnings with an open heart and mind and only through that you will really learn a thing fully.

First, I've learned that this life does not revolve around me. I should learn to consider people around me and how I should act whenever they are and they are not within my sight. Second, I've learned that being rich is not the end of life. Success cannot be equated to the amount of money I have collected, but of the number of faces I have made happy. And third, I've learned that I may be forever poor, but always be happy. Money is not a guarantor of a having a happy life. Living as is, is actually fun. So live your life, positively and to the fullest. ^_^

Vanila 1. Let go, never expect too much from other, not even your loved ones. 2. Tell it now, even if you sound nagging you must tell all to your spouse. I have found that your goodness for concealing the bitternesses in life goes ashtray when you are denied of being untrue! 3. Living the hurdles is but life. I was going through an awful stage in my life. Each day was a struggle and I was dejected, yearning for the tough time to end forever. Then I realised it never does. For living it is what life is! And the beauty lies in the way you face the hardships. Happy living.

Hello dear vanila. The three most important thing that I have ever learned in my life are as follows, 1. learn to be independent, because you are the only one who is the most reliable to depend on. Here I mean, depend on yourself, which is the best policy, though friends and family members can also help you. 2. try to be expert at the work that you are engaged in or try to learn as much as possible to be more professional in your future career, which supports or will support you in your life. 3. always be friendly to the people around you, because to be friendly to the others means to be friendly to yourself, which makes life and work easier and more comfortable. Thank you for your discussion, dear vanila.

"Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle." i just like the jobs steve said:"stay hungry,stay foolish."

well the very first thing i've learnt in my life will be - 'for each his own'. nobody will be happy or sad for you. so do not listen to what others have to say or care about what others think about. afterall, who will be there for you when you couldn't sleep at 3am because you are feeling sad? the second thing will be money cannot buy happiness. it took me a long while to really know what makes me happy. now i'm more interested in pursuing happiness than money. because i know what i want in life is not money. the third thing i learnt will be the importance of love. love for and from my family, friends and of course my partner. it's really amazing how love can fill one with joy.

This is a good discussion. One, I've learned that people are more important than some might realize. I cherish humanity for what it is and everyone in it. Two, I think my family plays an important role in my life. I wouldn't be here today if I didn't have my mom and everyone helping me through my tough days back in school. And three, I've learned that acceptance can be the best gift anyone could ever give to you.
