Top Ten Most Important Things In Life
God, He's the most important thing in life, created all things, and the one that is always there for you. If you're and atheist you won't understand, and I hope you will see the miracles everyday. Put God before everything in life, put him in number one. All the things I do are great, I pray before tests but some of my friends don't, and I got the best score in class! Thanks to God, we are all here, we can breath, have family, have friends, and have everything in life that we need. People who didn't vote God here, are just non-believers, atheists, or probably do not know God. To everyone here in this world I hope you believe in God, neither atheists or non-believers and the ones who don't know, and even people who already know God. I'm still 11 years old by the way.
There would be no point in life without God. I don't honestly believe people can be really truly happy until they know God & have Him in there life. God guides me every day through all things. Since I became A Christian 4 years ago, I can not tell you brothers and sisters how Great my life has become. Every day I feel happy & blessed. Before I turned to God I was a non believer I lived a life of sin & crime, I had no respect or morals. I done really bad, rotten things, I had no consideration for anyone other than myself, I was self centered, stubborn, nasty. I was not a nice person. My life was empty, I was depressed & I had no love in my heart. Then some terrible things happened to me & I was at the lowest point In my life, I was hopeless & I turned to God and God helped me and got me through it all. He gave me strength & gave me faith and Hope that things would get better and they did get better. It goes to show how GREAT God's love is. Even though I was a sinner & I did terrible ...more
Okay... Maybe he is important but I just believe in myself I do not mean to start a fight sorry... I just think... I believe... In what I think. That is what I make, god may be ALL THAT but... YOU created God right? Without whoever thought of gods voice God wouldn't have been God..,. GOD wouldn't have been REAL or thought of in a highly way... But, quite frankly your thoughts are the creator. You are not the Creation YOU ARE THE CREATOR! And sinning other wise known as mistakes are good in some ways because without them we wouldn't come back THREE TIMES STRONGER mistakes give us a boost but then again too much of anything is bad for everything
It's true God is the most important and for all who don't believe in him what is your purpose in life? Why we are here if we are going to die? The answer is god our life is a journey and believing in him and loving him and having faith and if our faith in him was as little as a mustard seed as sais JESUS you will be able to move the mountains in a single word. To summarize we live to die and it is not enough to love only god and not loving our brother or sister at home or fighting with an other for money or other material stuff and all the good things we do on earth will be rewarded in heaven with God because our life does not end when we die it's just the start of an other eternal life with God.
Love towards your family, friends and everybody else. Love, that can turn to stone the anger in a traffic jam, get you through annoyances and pain inflicted by others. It is what motivates you and shows you the best of all ways to follow through any situation, however simple that feeling may be. You work to take advantage of the wonderful working opportunities that the world has to offer (and living conditions), accomplish yourself and give a goal to your life, but doing more than the minimum there is just a bonus... For you could spend a whole life with love to give and receive and only that, and still be happy.
Love. Print it all over your life. Simple as that.
Recently viewing YouTube videos of those who have had life changing experiences.
Those who died and went to hell say there was no love there, no fellowship of any kind. No strength to walk, talk, or enjoyment of any kind. They gasp for breath but no success. Then the pain with no comfort whatsoever. Love was not there. To reject God is to reject Love.
Then the videos of people who went to heaven experience so much love and joy it was nothing but awesome.
The impact of their experiences drastically changed their lives. They are sharing their stories. God is good and if you want good choose God.
Socrates ; Who has love? The one that is loved or the one who loves?
Answer ; The both I think.
Socrates ; But is it not possible that sometimes you love someone and you're not loved in return?
Answer ; Yes!
Socrates ; So, who has love then?
Answer ; The one who loves, I guess.
Socrates ; But without love in return he will feel sad. The one he loves may even hate him.
Answer ; Yes that's true.
Socrates ; And the one who hates has love of the person who loves him.
Answer ; That's also true.
Socrates ; So, what is the answer? Who has love? The lover or the loved one?
Answer ; By Zeus, I don't know, Socrates!
God and Love are one in the same. I just prefer to call it Love because most of the people who use the term 'God' use it in a way that implies that 'he' is one distinct being separate from any human, living thing, or literally anything else created by nature or humans.
That is what is usually implied in religions like Christianity. I used to be a part of it, but then I realized that the typical definition of 'God' according to a typical christian is far too limited to be fully true, because our minds are able to conceive something greater that COULD exists than what your average christian would call 'God.'
Let me give an example. If God and Love are one in the same, which they are, and if we humans can feel the thing known as love, wouldn't that mean we have God inside us, therefore in a sense we are ALL God, in one way or another? Yes, I'd say so.
Now, let me give another example on the flipside of that. If we were to believe that God is strictly a being of love ...more
Family stay with you at any situation
This is one of the great advantage from family and none of us never realise this at any time. You may have lots of friends or relations or office mates. They will definitely be with you in your happy times or any successful achievements. But, your parents or sisters or brothers are the only one will stay with you in your hard and difficult times. Do you know what? , your mum and dad are the only one who understands you much more than any other people in the world. Because they are your creators and they are the only ones travelling with you from the beginning. So they understand your feelings and always there for you whenever you need someone abundantly. This is the power of family. There are many people can help you, but family will help you whenever you are alone.
Family is the most important thing! Family will be there with you forever because they are the only people we trust. Even though our parents scold us that's because they love us and they want the best from us. You can never be here if you parents were not there!
One of my biggest fears in life (if not, my biggest) is loneliness. I cannot imagine a life where there is no one to turn to for support during times of threat and adversity. Investing in relationships is crucially important for this purpose but this is especially the case for immediate blood relatives.
Put simply, if I discovered that I only had one day left to live, I would do everything in my power to spend that day with my family. That would be my sole priority.
There is nothing more important than Family... They are the ones who will always be by your side no matter what! Our parents sacrifice everything for us which not even our best of friends would do.
Grandparents forgive you if you disappoint them and give you motivation to work harder. just remember -come what may, never lie to your parents because they do not deserve it!
There are actually studies in the medicine world where there use music to treat depressions. Let me point out that in the philosophy of Pythagoras, music and his relation with moodswings was already very well known and also important to understand the harmony of nature and the universe. I personally can't live happy without music. Also, just because music is made and practised in a " reality " world by humans I found it more important than unrealistic concepts like god, jesus, allah and so on.
I think music should be on number 1 because without music everyone would be going crazy right now every one has their type of music everybody sings Alon or hums along to some rythym and nobody has seen god nobody hums to god nobody talks to god nobody is with god were without god right now and were doing perfectly fine and I bet you anything that we think about music at least 10% more than we think about god and by the way according to science god did NOT create everything. Thank you for taking your time to read this.
The reason is, your spirits are attentive.
For do but note a wild and wanton herd
Or race of youthful and unhandled colts,
Fetching mad bounds, bellowing and neighing loud,
Which is the hot condition of their blood,
If they but hear perchance a trumpet sound,
Or any air of music touch their ears,
You shall perceive them make a mutual stand,
Their savage eyes turned to a modest gaze
By the sweet power of music.
Rom The Merchant Of Venice...
As exaggerate as I may come off, It's hard to imagine life without music. Parties wouldn't be parties, fun travels to other places in the world wouldn't be as memorable, graduations wouldn't make us feel the same, so many things would be quiet and simply dull. Music is definitely one of the main things that make life one hell of an awesome ride.
Health is the number one priority in life. Period. Without it, you simply cannot experience life the way you want. EVERY other aspect of life will be jeopardised if your health is not up to scratch. The most basic yet most essential requirement is to live your life healthily.
Perhaps the reason why so many people are not healthy is that just because they don't 'spend time' on it, they can easily neglect it in favour of the things they do spend time on (e.g. work, family). A lot of people take their health for granted. But in reality, it should not be difficult to stay healthy - that is both physically and mentally. It's a case of making the right choices and avoiding bad habits.
This is number one above all, even if you aren't capable of understanding that.
Without health, you're dead.
Health is wellbeing - physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social, environmental, occupational and financial.
It's the single most important thing to any life. You don't exist without it. It's necessary to formulate this list.
Everything comes afterwards.
It should be obvious that the most important thing is health. Health enables you to meaningfully do, give, or experience every other thing on the list. Saying other things are more important is like saying self-actualization should precede physiological needs on Maslow's hierarchy of needs.
Good health makes everything better, while bad health is so hard to see past, bad health becomes your world because you always focus on it - spending time at the doc, taking pills, doing your therapy or exercise or whatever treatment. Bad health consumes you.
Second to god this is the most important item on the list (in my opinion). Too many people believe that "friends come and go," but I know what real friendship is. Friends can become your family. And true friends are lifelong. They'll be with you forever and ever, but only if you want them to. The amazing thing about friendship is the fact that two or more people, who come from alternate cultures, places, and families, began to cherish each other. I believe the number one reson friendship has lost it's meaning is because the word itself is so misused (expecaly in the USA), it isn't that people chose bad friends really it's that we chose bad people to call friends, there's a boundary between acquantnce and friend, and people need to learn it. What about family some would ask? Really when it comes to family vs (true) friendship, I prefer friendship, but other people have preferences. I say that they should generally be seen equal in priority, but the choice of the one that means the most ...more
Second to God (God is NOT a 'thing', in my opinion), friends are the best thing in life. To the point, do you like the presence of your parents? Your siblings?
For me, I'd prefer my friends. If you got the 'normal' pair of parents, every time you try a 'normal chat' with them, it would always end in a preaching lesson. Parents would always fuss over us, and assume stuff they don't have the slightest idea of. They love us the way we are, maybe, but they always hope to change every part of us. And worse? We need to suck it up.
On the other hand, friends don't have that authority over us. They are equal on us. We rant about our parents, and unlike our parents, they let us act as we wish. They are like a bin for us to let our stress in. Without them, I might've died a long time ago, I had an 'no-friends' experience once, and talking to walls isn't fun. Trust me.
Friends is important too. They are the one who always cheer us if we are sad, make us laugh, do everything for you. They always support us and understand us. Without friends, you'll be alone. They always make us laugh because they don't want us to see us crying or being sad. Being friends with your friends makes me happy because you're going to create some memories and a close bond together.
I Do not believe that Friends are more than Parents or Happiness cause friends can turn their back on you whenever and parents are always there and they always love you no matter what (unconditional love).
I would have to agree with the philosopher Aristotle. who stated that happiness, or what he called eudaimonia, is the most important thing in life. True happiness is the one true end in life, everything else is a means used to achieve true happiness. For example, if you're healthy, you're happy. Love leads to happiness. For many people knowledge brings them happiness. many people may even say that God makes them happy. Happiness is the one true goal in life, if we use our innate sense of rationality we can figure this out for ourselves. To conclude, without happiness, life would be dull and not worth living. In order to live a productive and successful life you must be happy in yourself, your work and your hobbies. Therefore, happiness must be the most important thing in life. All the empirical facts point towards it. So before voting for God or love or even family, stop and think about what you actually want from life. I'm sure most of you will want to be happy.
Think about it. All the thiings you see above this have one thing in common: happiness is derived from all of these things. Without happiness, life would feel empty and worthless. A life worth living is a life where you can look back on it and it makes you feel good, makes you feel happy. For example, you could live a life of good health but what good would it be if you had nothing you could seek happiness from, be it family, music etc. I'm not saying that health isn't important but our goal is always to find happiness, in this life and for some, in the afterlife.
This means I am the source of my own happiness whether it's about what I am doing, what I like to have, because if I am happy about myself then it usually shared to someone else. When I am finished a project I like, it makes me happy and I would probably treat myself a nice vacation trip, shopping, taking family trip, making other people happy buy using their services and having great times with family and loved ones.
I think happiness is the most important thing in life. It is individual, someone sees his or her happiness in family or friends another one in love or health. It combines everything and with it you can see how precious life and the good moments are
Of course, it is important! Without food, our race of humans would cease to exist. Drinking water and other fluids is also a contribution to our health and to our beings. Foods and drinks should replace #4, though. Music isn't that important, but it does help promote peace.
It depends if this survey is on the literal most important things (like surviving or necessary things) or what is most beneficial to humans in a psychological or humanitarian way... if literal then food and drinks would be 1, but if the second the obviously go------wait no, I didn't see marijuana. Definitely marijuana.
Without them, you would die of dehydration and starvation. Without drinks, you would cough and be sick infinitely.
We would die without them, it's more important than friends and that's a fact. How could friends be above it? People are idiots.
This is a given. We have air. Water could be something you might need more cause you have to buy one way or another. You are kind of killing my air every time you speak so please limit your mouth time cause your mouth wash isn't making it.
It's important, sure, but it's also stupid. Every atomelement is important in the universe. You take one element out of the universe and the whole thing as we know it will not exist anymore. Air is a mixture of 20% oxigen, 79% nitrogen,1% noble gases and 0,3% carbon dioxide.
I do agree that air is extremely important. But I still don't know how AIR came in this list. If that's the case, then things like the sun, water, and land should come in the list too. It's a bit weird.
Without music we can still live because we can still breathe and get access to food and water.
Without air we will all just die
Which is more important?
Important but at some moment in your life you have to cut the " sanitary cordon " or you will not be able to lead your life like you want. This doesn't mean that suddenly your parents are unimportant but everybody has to lead their own lives. You don't follow orders your all life from parents.
Most important for some. What about parents who don't give a crap about their children? Who abuses their children? The everyday reality on this world show us otherwise. It would be most important if the case was 100% true all over the world. But it isn't...!
They are the one who taught you everything. They risked their lives to make us live. They have shown us examples like happiness, love, joy, everything! Without them, we are nothing. Without them, we would die.
You didn't come from "god" or a "stork", kids, you came from your parents. Life started when your mother and father loves each other very much and.. Alright, alright, I'll stop.
Well, you can vote God as well, and Jesus is Son of God. I know not all people here are Christians but come on, He died for our sins and died only for us! While that happened, he went to the Place of the Dead (recall that as hell, or underworld, I don't know) and asked them that do they believe in Jesus Christ and God Almighty, and those people who are asked are people who don't know Him and the people who died in the Noah incident. If they do believe Him deep within their heart, they shall live with God in Paradise (Heaven). And in the 3rd day He rises back, everything starts. So love Jesus and God, put them in first! May God be with you, AMEN!
What has he done for me? Is my life depending on him or is my life depending on what I'm doing with it? My life is well without believing in him. I really don't care about someone I never knew, because if I do I should care for all people I don't even know. And doing that is something not very sane. It's not normal. I don't care for people I don't know because they can be all bad as far as I know.
Nothing on earth has been so well documented as the live of Jesus, the son of god. He released mankind from the inherited sin of falling into the hell together with lucifer. Jesus avakened mankind from the spiritual death, so from then on we can reach our former place in heaven again.
He died for our sins, and he loves each and everyone of his children very very much. After all, he is the Son of God. Jesus and God are by far the two most important things in life.
Who spends 40+ hrs per week praying to God, looking for a partner, having sex, spending time with friends, or listening to music? No one I know does. But they all go to work so they can get more money. Money is the bread and butter of life. Without money, none of these other things are really possible. You could reasonably argue health is more important than money. Like not having use of your legs, being horribly burned or dying from cancer before you reach 25 is not worth it even with all the money in the world. But after that, money is clearly the bread and butter of life people. If you don't think so, your just being jelly.
You can live without money, try looking up a poor place. How do they survive? I mean come on, everyone is so dependent on money that they don't see the true purpose in life, you need to stop and just enjoy what you have before it disappears right in front of you, sometimes people don't even realize what is right in front of them until it is gone. So a tip, stop and look around at what you have because if you don't then you have REALLY missed out.
Money doesn't just buy you a better life, better food, better cars, better women, it makes you actually a better person. You can give generously to your church, political party, or charity of your choice.
How can money be so low on this list? Money is the most important thing in the whole world. The only reason they make food is not because of health, it is made for profit. MONEY!
How do you think that we evolved? It's because we gathered up knowledge. Now look at us, relearning what people in the past discovered, discovering our new things, and more. It's important because it made most of the things we have. Heck, even the ability to do simple stuff like eating and sleeping comes from knowledge because you followed simple instructions on doing them within about an hour of being on the Earth. Why is God #1 on the list? Not everyone believes in God and there's no proof of his existence, but there is proof for knowledge existing and there is proof that we are constantly getting an increased amount of knowledge per minute. Right now, I gathered a new piece of knowledge by simply looking at knowledge being in the #9 spot, and that knowledge is 'Knowledge is in the #9 spot' (surprise, surprise).
LemonComputer, You are saying that intelligence is an ability to share knowledge ( your comment at the rank " intelligence " ). Every living specie has intelligence ( animals and humans ) but not every specie is able to get knowledge. Animals are born with instinctive information ( and some communicate ) but these are " programs " in their DNA structures. They can learn from their mistakes but they will never be able to share that learned new information to an unknown outsider of their own specie ( subjectivity versus objectivity ). Humans on the other hand have the ability to share their knowledge by subjective verifications or experiences and pass these through objective verifications simply by language ( which is a learned form of communication and not an instictive form of communication ). The basics of intelligence is the recognition of forms and quantity ( also known as the Platonic numbers ). Sharing the recognition in a intelligent matter can only be done through a learned ...more
Knowledge is power. Knowledge is almighty. It takes knowledge to know about God, to follow his teachings. I swear those who voted for God never read neither Bahavad Gita nor Bible or Qur'an.These people hardly follow God's teachings. In the name of God they ignorantly do everything that he told not to do. There is a reason these are called holy books you know.Simply put God is love.Next thing is not just family but love towards and from family. Then you need knowledge on how to be healthy. Hence Knowledge is everything.
It may not seem like a top ten, but without it, you can't become an accountant, or a lawyer, or read books, or play sports,(sports because you can't tell your left from your right.)or much, much more. The world would also become chaos. Without working together, forming a government, and using your knowledge, people would kill each other, crash cars(wait those wouldn't have been invented! ),and so much more.
Yes it's a important thing but it's also a little bit stupid. When you analyse it further you can even say that two hydrogen atoms and one oxigen atom combined to make the water molecules are more important. And when you go more further you can say that atoms are more important and so on...
I love how this is so far down the line in important-ness. This is ESSENTIAL. Maybe more so than God.
How is water below money!? And way back in the past money was not invented so think of how they got water!
That's kind of an obvious on but yes, it is.

Preservation of the nature is important. Too many people on this world are destroying the earth ( and they don't care! As long they're making money with it. ). If you destroy nature you destroy the earth because the earth needs nature to exist ( alteration of weather, earthquakes, airpollution... etc..
Nature is love, nature is life. I love nature. I care deeply for nature. I want to work with it when I'm older.
You can live without love (OK not really) but you can live without music and friends! We need nature!
We are part of nature
Science is my favorite thing ever since the age of 2 I was interested in engineering, animals dinosaurs and now I’m into physics and biology.
It's a strange analytic formula to get from science and result into life. Lots of sciences aren't equal to math. And as for the outcome " life ", it's with life itself, with your thinking that you can actually be able to produce your ideas into practice. Producing something is first thinking to produce it. I agree that science is important for many things and so is math but fun and entertaiment aren't nessecerally related to science. Having fun and have entertaiment can be sometimes very simple things that nature produces. I mean, you can throw stones at a target that you did choose and have fun with it. And the outcome is certainly not life itself. You should have said entertaiment = fun = enjoying life but that's not even 20 % related to science because it depends on the sort of fun and entertaiment that you are enjoying your life.
Science is far more important than god, a made-up human made concept (as evident through the fact that religions and deities have appeared in almost every civilisation on almost every continent in the world).
Science is a important factor to everything and everyone, it is progressive and constantly changing unlike many other things. By now science have been intergrated into humanity so much that we have become used to the constant change of this very science. Undoubtly without science we would still be offed at 60 or less, so I have no doubt everyone owes it to science.
Imagine the world with no animals..
We would all be vegans. No pets!
That would be so, so, terrible..
My pet dog, Sirius, cheers me up all the time!
Poo is not a animal but they are important because they make u happy and not all. People are vegans. also imagine a world without your pet
This is number 1 to me if I could never have pets again id kill mysel
My close second would have to be hyena
It is to be regretted that some importants studies cost a fortune and that therefore many people can't afford to make or choose the studies they want to do. Studies should be for everybody. Poor people can't afford to pay for studies like for instance a doctor, a lawyer etc...Because of a crap capitalist system many studies remains for a elite of people.
Education is 29? Really?
If you don't have friends, a good family or money than education is the only thing that will never leave you.
You can live in a mansion that gets burned down the next day, but your education is what brings you back up once again.
Education is important because it it leads to our goals in order for us to achieve what we want in the future.
Yeah, I suggest this to be over Knowledge rank defentley
Without life you can't think of anything important. Say you die, the best thing that can happen is go to heaven, but you can't choose when your dead! God is important, but life is important to believe God is. Money isn't important as much as the quality of life. Although money makes people happy, imagine the homeless who don't own any! Everything else, family, friends, especially love, you need to be alive to have these things. Life should be important, no murder and no assault on anyone's quality of life.
Life without believing that Jesus is our savior is no life. we all sing therefore life is death.
For the consequence of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
If life never existed, everything above this listing wouldn't exist. So...
How do you expect to live a happy life if you're not living at all?
Soul? What is that? A thing? A piece of fire in your heart or something? Who knows? But what we do know is that it represents ourselves.
I don't get it? Are you not supposed to have a soul? Or is it something that you have to buy or getting somewhere?
Scientists can't explain Soul, because it is Spiritual. Science dies not believe in that...
Or I'd be a ghost
Accept yourself! Love yourself!... anyone else remember that vine?
Good or bad is a pure ethic question. What can be good to you can be bad to others and vice versa. Like the philosopher Kant proposed ; " Ask yourself the question, what if everybody should do what I want to do. Would it be good or bad for the human condition if everybody did it? "
Liberal or Republican are both bad for the human condition. We have to find an alternative.
I always try to be a kind TopTenner, even to mean people when all I want is to throw dodgeballs at them.
You mean not being a Republican?
I just know that without the two girls of my life I would most likely be dead (or don't exist). And yes one of them is my mother, the other is my girlfriend. Woman are the greatest gift that God gave mankind. And that is something I've always knew since I was little. Girls are perhaps the strongest point to tell that God is real. Have you seen the love a woman can give, to his sons, his husband, boyfriend, brothers etc..? That, my friends, can only come from God. I can't find another explanation for such love...I've tried. Best thing in life hands down right after God. Period.
I really don't understand why most boys hate us girls. They don't realise that without women, this world would be nothing. Without women, marriages would not take place and children would not be born. And if children are not born, then humans would be extinct soon, yet everyone gives boys the focus. Goku, Sonic the hedgehog, Mario, Michael Jackson, these are some boys we all focus on. Why can't there be famous girls in this world, even if it's from a video game?
I not doing a downside about girls but they are important like some of them are heroes like mother Teresa but boys are important as well because without either of them the world would be nothing. I know stuff like God is a male and same with Neil Armstrong and they are important but why are most of the boys heroes on video games? Why aren't girls as well?
We're talking about girls here and yet there are still comments about god here. Why do people need to mention on every topic the religious concept of god? I have a girlfriend and neither of us two believe in god because we're atheists. And everything's fine ( I dare say more than fine ) between me and my girlfriend. So, what has my girl to do with god?
Faith is just another word for consolation. A consolation against the cruel reality of life. Sigmund Freud wrote in his book ' The future of an illusion ' following words "... humans can't live without consolation or faith that religion gives them. They would not be able to stand the cruel reality and burden of life. This consolation is already teached to them at childhood. But is the purpose of education not to learn how to get from childhood to adulthood? Humans can't be forever children! They need to face and learn to live one day in a hostility world, a hostility universe. You can't call this education of faith and (or) consolation in god a education of reality. I have to say that it's a necessity to impose a education of reality and to progress for that matter...every religious attitude, spiritual irrationality is an obsession and a nevrotic fact by nature..."
( From " The future of an illusion " by Sigmund Freud )
Listen, I don'y mean to offend people who aren't religious. If you are atheist, please do not read this.
Faith is the most important thing on here. God is extremely important but it is not a thing. Without faith in god, you could not go to heaven. Without faith, you could not be happy all your life. Without faith, you can't believe in yourself and you would quit way too easily. I could go on and on, but that would be way too much.
Please stop. We get it, God is important to you, but please realize there are others here with differing views. Obviously not everyone has the same view on religion, but I don't believe that outright dismissing or even insulting them would sit well with the teachings that you've been following, so please, no self-righteous hypocrisy on here, thank you.
My opinion is that God, Jesus and Prophet Muhammad should not be incorporated in this list for reasons of the insane nature. Please think of the children and the influence that this will have on them, thinking that maybe this website being unpopular as it is, may at some point gain publicity.
