Life lessons are learned through experiences, and mistakes. Some of the mistakes are costly and/or painful, and took us a lot of time to recover from them. Some lessons took a long time to learn. Unfortunately, time is something we do not have plenty of. We do not have enough time to learn all the Life’s lessons by ourselves.
However, we may be able to get a head's start in life, if we learn from the experiences and mistakes of others, and by paying attention to the words of wisdom, and advices of the wise people before us, – the sages, the philosophers, the gurus... – and also those who are still with us who have been through the hardships in life.
These are valuable Life lessons not learned in school. Armed with these lessons, we will be able to avoid the potholes in life. We will have an idea of what to expect of Life, and how to live our lives. There will be times when you find that these are exactly the advises you are seeking, or the answers to your questions.
