Experience is practical, knowledge is theoretical.
However, by the society we are living in – we are constantly battling between experience vs knowledge till the end of time.
Parents, teachers, relatives, competition within the society and competition in between the peers putting pressure on us to study, many of them are trying to make us like themselves. No matter wherever you live, which country you come from, we see this kind of people everywhere.
In fact, your life shouldn’t be like that. Basically, the key thing to remember in life is: “You are only going to get whatever the other person is willing to give.”
It is not about what other people think about you, it is about the freedom of individual choice.
History does repeat itself, but nothing has to be so. A successful life is about enjoying life and its experiences. Follow principles like these and your life will be full of learning, awe, wonder, love, joy and happiness.
Life is to be enjoyed.
