We live surrounded by uncomfortable truths. Some so subtle that they go unnoticed before our eyes. Others are so common that we have become accustomed to not thinking about them.

Truths that you must not ignore if you want things to go well for you. Truths that you must not lose sight of if you wanted to progress in life. Truths that are based on common sense.

My grandfather always told me that common sense is the least common of the senses and that in a world where the law of supply and demand reigns, common sense is a rising value.

And it is true. I have based my career as a writer and Mindfulness teacher on the development of common sense; In paying attention to the simplest things: to the small details, because in the subtle hides the wonderful.

That’s why in today’s article, I want to share with you seven truths. Seven revelations that I have observed through years of meditation and creative writing.

Today I will talk to you about seven realities that you have to keep in mind to live a better life.

Let’s dive in.

I. We all die

“All my possessions for a moment.”

Isabel I of England.

No use being rich if our time is up. I still remember Steve Jobs’ 2005 Stanford Commencement Address. The last thing he said was: “Stay hungry. Stay foolish.”

I try to follow his advice. To me, Steve was a role model. Someone who was a self-made man.

But despite having all the money and all the power a person can have, he died.

Nothing and no one can stop you from leaving when the time comes. It is sad but true. It is an uncomfortable but transformative truth.

How to apply it to your life

Steve Jobs said he performed the same ritual every morning. He would get up, go to the restroom, look in the mirror, and ask himself: “If today were the last day of my life would I want to do what I’m going to do today?”
