Filled with colorful notes to the brim, we have our most cherished life lessons jar.  100 small notes contain a different life lesson from parts of the world you might not know yet of. These life lessons have been shared generously by people from all ages and walks of life. From practical advises to ruminating ones, from lessons that will tickle your ribs, you will find all in one jar.

We, at Project FUEL love what this jar of wisdom teaches us and the way it inspires us every day. So we thought, why not share our secret innovative ways to help you get the best of these 100 lessons of life?   

 

  • Find it – Pin it! 

Here’s a pretty simple way to inculcate the values that the life lesson jar embraces: 

  1. Randomly pick up a note from the jar on a decided day of the week. 
  2. Find yourself a space of silence while you read it. Absorb the lesson, stay with it till you find its meaning and relevance to your life. (We guarantee you, that you will!)
  3. Behind the note, right 2 ways through which you can imbibe this life lesson in your life. 
  4. Throughout the week, make a personal resolve to yourself to practice the lesson daily. 
  5. Once done, pin the life lesson note at your office desk, study desk, bathroom mirror or anywhere where this life lesson will act as reminder for you to keep sailing through with your head always held high. 

Practice this for at least few weeks and we promise you, the fulfillment this serves will give you unrivaled joy. Not to mention, learnings of a lifetime which will never make you feel stuck in a difficult or dead-end situation!

  • Send a Prayer

Our team member, Sanchita shared with us an interesting way in which she uses her life lesson jar. In the past few years, she has had to stay away from my family to pursue higher education. Being  emotionally attached to my family, she would miss them and crave for their warmth. Her mother, who would always know that she wasn’t as well as she said she was, would assuredly tell her “I’m sending you my prayers. I’m sending you the good vibes. You are not alone”. Its been 4 years and homesickness still sometimes summons her, but through her mother’s words and prayers, she feels her prayers have shielded her from the demons of loneliness and fear in her mind.

Our jar has life lessons from people who have lost their families and home in a natural disaster, people who had to flee the war zone their country became, children who were orphaned at a young age, women who have fought violence, and many more people like you and me who have stumbled yet gotten up every time life threw a wrecking ball at us.

Every time you open a life lesson note, send a prayer, straight from you heart to the person whose life can inspire you. You might never meet them, or you might actually bump into them at some point. But what you can be assured of is, that your prayer will reach them and protect them. The children in Syria who are unaware of what future holds for them, refugees in a new country trying to find their voice, a young boy exploring a world knowing his family is no more.

We can create divinely inspired energy that impacts everything and everyone around you. We often forget that we play a much larger part in the bigger picture of this world than we realize.

 

  • Tippy Tippy Tap – What’s your color for the day?

Here’s a fun to make these 100 awesome life lessons a part of your daily hustle bustle. The jar has 25 chits of 4 colors each. These 4 colors can serve as your direction when you are trying to find the underlining meaning of a situation, emotion or even give you a little laugh! Let me show you how:

  1. Open the pink notes when you have had a bad day. Did your boss or teacher scold you? Did you have a fight with a loved one? Did someone misunderstand your intentions? The pink notes will give you the solution to all problems under the roof! 
  2. Open the yellow notes when you need inspiration. Think of these yellow chits as rays of the illuminating sun which showers its light in darkest of places and phases of our lives. 
  3. Open the blue not when you just don’t want to live life, instead celebrate it! Let the blue chits be a reminder of beautiful life lessons which when you think of, can easily smear it in your own lives. 
  4. Open the green notes on days when you are surrounded by people, yet you feel lonely and incomplete. Every person’s eternal quest is to shatter this loneliness. You will never find yourself alone with the wisdom you will find in the blue notes.

Life Lessons Jar
  • 100 days of Novelty

We often think how life becomes monotonous and dull with nothing new to look forward to. You wake up, dress up, go to work, come back home and sleep. And then again, repeat this drill the following day, week, month and maybe sometimes for years. Now imagine, interlacing your day with a fresh new life lesson everyday which not only gives you a fresh new perspective but also renewed start and source of inspiration to look forward to, for the next 100 days to come!  

Open the note with your morning cup of coffee or before going to bed every night. We are definite that the lessons will come around you to strengthen your inner self.

 

  • Be the Bestfriend!

I have often found myself in situations where I had to support and encourage my best friend who was having a tough time. Realizing I didn’t always know the perfect thing to say to her, I knew that I would find a solution when I dig in the life lesson jar. Now, when my friends open to me about their problems, I might not know the perfect words to say to them but I know about the best thing to do for them, that is to find someone’s lesson who has gone through a similar battle. My friends and family cherish these life lessons which I shared with them and hope to someday meet the person who was their beam of light in darkness. 

 

Wisdom may come in small packages. It may look like a subtle urging or signs from universe. It may also look like tiny colourful notes. You might find your life purpose, or a lesson that could be life changing. It may simply be something encourages you to express happiness and gratitude within you. Something that as adults, we forget to do. 

Life zips by us while we are busy doing, working, shuffling. Allow yourself to enjoy the journey through perspectives of people from all walks of life. Listen to the wiles you feel inside, while reading the beautiful lessons. 

Do what you can to live a little bit with life lessons which surround you each day.

You can purchase the exclusive life lesson jar from our online store. And if you already own one, we would love to know how you use your jar.

About The Author

Project FUEL, founded in 2009 by Deepak Ramola, collects life lessons from people all over the world and turns them into interactive and performance activities, to pass on the learnings. The passing on happens by way of workshops, seminars, and sometimes even over coffee. Every life is important and so is what each person's life teaches them. At FUEL, life lessons are continuously collected, documented, thought about deeply and then turned into performance activities. This ensures that you don't just hear someone's lesson in words but experience it tangibly, and apply it practically in your own life. The organization seeks to build a community of young adults who live, learn and share in order to make meaningful psycho-social and emotional contribution to their lives, and the society at large. A life lesson that comes to us from another human being can shine light on the understanding of our own life. Hence the name FUEL, which stands for Forward the Understanding of Every Life Lesson.
