Go beyond “Don’t Just” in life. Why? Read it and get the answer.

“Don’t Just
Don’t just learn, experience.
Don’t just read, absorb.
Don’t just change, transform.
Don’t just relate, advocate.
Don’t just promise, prove.
Don’t just criticize, encourage.
Don’t just think, ponder.
Don’t just take, give.
Don’t just see, feel.
Don’t just dream, do.
Don’t just hear, listen.
Don’t just talk, act.
Don’t just tell, show.
Don’t just exist, live.”
― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

Roy T. Bennett has rightly pointed out the DOs and DON’Ts of successful life here.

Learn and experience

You learn from many sources. These sources include, books, parents, teachers, trainers, surroundings and so on. But when you learn through experience, your learning goes better.

Read and absorb

When you just read the books and don’t go deep, then you can’t absorb information on books. So it does not help you at all. It helps you only when you can absorb information on books.

Change and transform

Similarly, don’t change yourself under the external influence, rather transform yourself with a new set of mindset and beliefs. Why? It will make your future bright.

Relate and advocate

Keeping up a good relationship with others is good for you. If you want to earn the trust of others, please keep up the relationship as well as support or advocate their interests publicly.

Promise and prove

If you make a promise to someone, always keep it. Prove it. Why? You are depositing in your emotional bank account.

Criticise and encourage

When you want to make a criticism, then put it in between two pieces of encouragements. Why? To make it effective.

Think and ponder

Pondering is preferable to thinking. It will help in decision-making. In other words, it helps in successful living.

Take and give

Similarly, if you want to receive more, then give more.

See and feel

Seeing becomes complete with your feelings.

Dream and do

See the dreams and take necessary actions to fulfil them.

Hear and listen

You hear a noise with no attention. But you listen with full attention. So what do prefer? Certainly listening.

Talk and act

Similarly, too much talk without action never brings success.

Tell and show

If you want to persuade someone to do something, don’t just tell him to do the thing. Rather show him how he will benefit if he does the thing.

Call to action

So what to do now? Do you want to exist or live? Don’t you want to go beyond “Don’t Just” in life? Please go beyond. Live your life deliberately to the fullest. Enjoy your life.
