Top 10 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.
The whole person of a man/woman is to praise God. He created us to have a relationship with him. If we miss that we miss what we were created for. God made us in his image, but we have decided to depart from that image. People can only reflect God's image when they have a relationship. a relationship doesn't mean going to church or reading the bible. It means actually being like God, imitating him. Let us love God, and love one another, its easy to love your friend, even evil people love their friends. It is much harder to Love your enemy or those who don't like you. Lets pray for those who don't know God and all those around us. If we Love God then lets do what he asks of us in the bible. Lets stop sinning and start getting closer to him in prayer.
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
God's the only thing that gives me a reason to live my life that he has given me. He has chosen for me to live a holy life and I'm just lucky to be alive so I owe everything to God. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is most important to me and the Bible is the number 1 thing for me to live by in life. He's the only person who has an understanding for everyone and everything in this world and that's a blessing to me that someone cares that much about his creations. There's nothing more special than a relationship with my Father, my Creator, and my Savior.
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.
Love is cheap and it's just a word losers made up to make themselves feel better. Sex is more important than love by a long shot. You need to get a grip you loser/posers. Sex is so much better than love. Your wife or girlfriend may say they love you but that won't stop them from having sex with the new guy at work if he is hotter than you or makes more money than you. That is why I worked my way to the top and I have had sex with most of the woman at my work. Not cause I am better looking mind you but cause they all want what I can do for them at work. I am the boss of boss's and it's my way or the highway. What I say goes end off discussion. All the men want to be like me I know cause I hear what they say about me in the board room. To stay on top you need an edge and electronic eves dropping is where it is at. I know who is screwing who and who is cheating on their taxes and who is into booze and drugs. I can crush their little worlds at anytime. Now tell me what is more important.
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.
Love, I believe love is needed in everyone's life. Without love what do we really have in our lives, we love our parents, the people who look after us, the ones who took us in at a time of need and where there for you. Love isn't all about romance, not always, it's about who came into your life, or was there when you entered your own life, and taught you how to talk, walk, and look after yourself, taught you everything you have now taken for granted. Honestly this generation that I am apart of is great with technology but when you step back and look at us look at everyone and how much we just expect and take for granted. Love is one of those many things, for instance the people whom of which it is easiest to hurt are the ones that love us, but those are the ones we never want to hurt because of how they make us feel, we are all just addicted to the feeling of being popular and noticed by those pretty girls on that other table but what we don't realize is what we are willing to do to ...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.
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.
Reading your comment about family made me feel alone and a bit sorry for myself both of which are feelings I avoid in every way. I am 49 years old and my Mother died when I was 32 My sister when I was 34. My father when I was 44 Y.O. This doesn't include grandparents and aunts and uncles. I have a wonderful son who is almost 21 and a niece and grand niece who my Ex and I raised through HS. Those three people are my family and I have the unfortunate role of being the oldest so they depend on me and don't do well with seeing me as having needs. They still need the mother figure to guide them.
I suspect your thoughts would be to find people who I like and can create a family of my choice. I have done just that but as you must know it just isn't the same. So without ado, I say enjoy every moment of those people you call family.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Who doesn't love music? I love rock, country, blues, and folk. From Led Zeppelin to Yes to Jimi Hendrix to BB King to Bob Dylan, music is an amazing thing. While everyone has their own type that they enjoy, we can all agree that music is an awesome thing. As the other poster said, whether you like pop, rock, rap, country, or blues or anything else, music is just incredible.
Schopenhauer : " There is a moment in life where it can reach a level of such refinement that it will free your unconscious origin. This condition can be reached with one form of art : Music. It can give you a feeling of a unnatural state of being. The ultimate contentment. No religion, no science, no philosophy, no any other artform can give you that level of contentment. "
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.
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
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.
Its very important to have some Quality and Real friends in your life. Someone told me that we are the average of 5 people with whom we spend most of our time.
So, keep quality people around you who inspires you and uplifts you in life.
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.
The most important thing in your life HAPPINESS. People attempt suicide because they don't have enough happiness in their lives. And living your life is all about enjoying the time that you have and if you enjoy there you go happiness...
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).
To JohnPierre88, Is it related to education and innovation? As for humans, it's obvious that knowledge when based on objective or even subjective facts and knowledge that it is related to education. Educating is passing through knowledge. Innovation is related to verification which can be educated ( so in a certain degree related to knowledge ). Animals like I said in my previous comments can't pass their knowledge ( certainly not their subjective knowledge coming from experiences ) via education. They can express themselves and learning from their mistakes but never be able to share to outsiders what they experienced ( maybe they can correct by instinctive expressions their own nest or family to a certain degree, but that's about it ). As for innovation, can animals invent a computer, a car, learning science etc..? I don't think so!
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.
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
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.
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.
Parents is the most important people in the world to us, because if we don't have them how could we be here?
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.
There's that famous quote that says that you can't live without money...
It's true. Deal with the reality and pain of the harsh truth of the world we live in. If we take away money, we lose the foundation of the very society we live in.
According To The Christian Bible, Jesus' purpose on Earth was redemption and salvation. While He was on Earth he healed the sick, brought the dead back to life, forgave sins, died on the cross for the world, and gave us a pathway to salvation. ...read more.
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.
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
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?
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 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.
How would we exist without this, we do science everyday. Like making observations, if you see it's snowing you know it's cold so you wear a thick coat, how is this at 23 on the list, without it how would have we discovered half the things on this list, think about that.
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).
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...
You are very right! Life is everything...the moment it ends that's it!
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!
Walrus must be number 1
Obey the walrus
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.
Scientists can't explain Soul, because it is Spiritual. Science dies not believe in that...
Or I'd be a ghost
Yes. He was the supreme human being lived on earth. All prophets praises his prophet hood in there secret books. He was truly inspirable to every one. The most generous human being lived on earth. All prophets admires him and Muhammad ( peace be up on Him) admired other prophets also, like Abraham, (friend of GOD) Noah, David, Moses and Jesus. ( Peace be up on all prophet). Prophet Muhammad was the last messenger of Almighty Allah deputed to purify all human being. He is the Prophet of all human being. The last secret reviled book the "Quran" of Almighty GOD based on 30 chapter, discloses all the prophet's life including Mohammad in details. He was the last prophet lived after Jesus. Prophet Jesus was the prominent prophet of GOD, but was not the son of GOD as new bible says. He was born to mother marry, a virgin and pious lady by miracle by Almighty. He was also not died, although GOD lift him alive on sky.
He was the greatest prophet ever lived, he was close to GOD, he was friend of GOD, this world was made for him, he was the man of peace, power and purity, shown unshakable resolution in the face of adversity, he was as bold as hawk, not to be wind shaken. No doubt he is invincible glorious and an eternal personality ever lived.
A remarkable personality. Truly the greatest ever lived. Prophet Muhammad was someone so influential and great that even his enemies looked up to him. He was the greatest ever. May Allah bless him
Sometimes, there are so many thoughts going through my brain, it is impossible to choose one to say. So for now, all I will say is that he was indeed great.
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.
It's like if you have no faith you are a non believer!
The only faith you need is the faith of yourself!
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.
It is the only place where you can sleep well. Even in hotels, you'd be worrying about the bill.
This is important but not really. its called be a bank robber and rob banks and buy hotels
Home is where the heart is.
Home sweet home!
Confidence is the opposite of self-hate. To set yourself free and find true happiness you must be confident in yourself and believe in your own morals.
Not everyone have confidence...
Which I, sadly, do not have.
Accept yourself! Love yourself!... anyone else remember that vine?
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?
So... Not being a liberal?
And being a democrat?
