About This Site

“Our greatest glory lies not in never failing, but in rising every time we fall.”


The-River-of-Life.com is an informative and interactive website on Life Philosophies & Life Lessons. What we experience and what we learn as we pass each day travelling through the timeline of our lives. Life is all about the choices and the decisions we make and the experiences we have as a result of those events. Although many will argue that the Bible is our instructional manual for life. For many, life does not come with any manual to follow at all. Either way, we must still rely on the teachings of others, observations we make, and the lessons we learn from our own experiences as we go along. But if we open our eyes, our ears, our hearts and our minds, then the lessons required to harvest life’s wisdom can be found in every fork along the River of Life. 

Those forks represent every choice and every decision we ever will make and all the events, experiences, happenings, occurrences, and encounters that come as a result of those forks in The River.

“Man is an animal. I am an animal. I respond naturally to a situation. This natural response is not intuitive; it is conditioned by the number of times I’ve been in a situation, and what I’ve learned from thousands of mistakes and a few successes. I no longer have any power over my reactions. I simply let my mind run. My body can only follow.”


We opened the Homepage of this website with the concept that Life is Just a River and each fork in that River is simply another choice or decision to be made along the journey. Every mistake and every failure we ever make are each just rungs on the ladder of learning and steps up the stairway to Wisdom. When seen in that light we begin to accept our mistakes and our failures with an open mind and more importantly, an open heart. It's not to say that we'll never suffer disappointment or embarrassment, but we learn to hold our head high and embrace those mistakes and failures as the stepping stones to growth in our character.

The Path You're On

We built this site as a forum for people to share their own experiences and the lessons they have learned along their own journeys down The River of Life. We provide plenty of material and real-life experiences to illustrate the points on a whole host of varied topics and look forward to the submissions you will share as well.

So, what has life taught you? Do you have any unique experiences or a philosophy you’d like to share? Or, maybe even just a comment on something you’ve seen here. Throughout the site we provide many places where you can comment on the site's content and other's submissions, as well as places to provide your own original thoughts, ideas, philosophies and ideologies. Look for the comment boxes and the "Join The Discussion" forms found near the bottom on just about every page throughout the site. Use those forms to share what wisdom you have gleaned from your journey through life. 

So, take a look around and have some fun. The Navigation Bar down the left side will take you to the major sections of the site, and each page will have many more links to help you navigate through the entire site. There are links on each page to guide you through the site and also get you back to the Homepage so you can start again if you need to.

“What’s well begun is half done.”

                ~ Horace

We hope you find many great examples of Life Lessons and consider this site “well begun”. But it is only “half done” as we’ll continue to add more great content and ask that, whether you agree or disagree with the philosophies shared and discussed on the pages of this website, you share your thoughts and ideas as well. It is through the interactive part of this web site that we will all glean greater Wisdom from the experiences of each other.

So, look around and have some fun … and make sure to come back often to see what’s new and also to see what comments others have made on your submissions.

Above and beyond the comprehensive program they provide to assist you on your journey is the incredible level of customer service you'll get along the way. The world would be a better place if every company out there modeled the quality and level of their customer service after what Solo Build It seems to provide with such ease. 

Watch the video below to see if your interest in creating your own web site gets a spark. 

You ready?
