What I Know For Sure


Dear reader,

Are you a big Oprah-fan, like me? If yes then I’m sure you know about the ‘What I Know For Sure’ column in O-magazine. If you have no clue what I’m talking about let me quickly explain that it’s a column Oprah was inspired to write after getting asked the question of what she knew for sure. It’s also something she asks her interview subjects very often. So, inspired by Oprah here is a list of a few things I know for sure.

  • It’s better to sleep on it if you can. If you have the opportunity to not rush your decision, you’re not going to regret taking an extra day making sure you’re making the right decision.

  • People can have slightly different perceptions of reality. It’s good to remind yourself of this once in a while as it makes it easier not to take things personally.

  • You can’t take back what you said or wrote. Think twice.

  • The road to success is not a straight line to the top.

  • Goals and dreams can change over time, and once you’ve reached one goal you very often have even more goals and dreams already lined up on your to-do list.

  • Money can not buy health nor the feeling of being content with what you have over time, no matter how much you have.

  • I feel happier when I exercise.

  • You teach people how to treat you. If something is unacceptable to you, let them know.

  • Life is full of surprises and curveballs for better and worse.

  • I’ve never regretted it when I’ve said ‘no’ to something to take care of myself physically or mentally.
    For me it’s better to say ‘yes’ to fewer things, and then be 100% present at those things.
