I’m not generally a “rules” type of guy.
However, if You have to live by some rules, You may find that these serve you very well.
* Lighten up
How often do you see people looking stressed, tense, agitated and/or just plain unhappy? You can take Life too seriously. Lighten Up and enjoy what Life has to offer you. When you ease the tension you are open to so much more. Life then comes to you … you don’t need to chase after it.
* Share your best work
Don’t be an island. The world is built on people who give outstanding ideas and service to others.
Be proud of what you do. Show it off and therefore be of better service to others.
* The truth is money in the Bank
Being truthful and living your own Truth, rewards you in kind. Living a lie doesn’t cut it. Being yourself and being the best version of you is “where the money is”.
* A smile costs you nothing to give
This is the cheapest [price wise] communication on the planet. Words are left unsaid. The communication is in the smile.
When you give a smile you breakdown any barriers between you and the recipient[s]. Smile often. Others will respond willingly.
* Change the Rules!
If you don’t like them, design your own. Design a set that will serve You. When you live within a framework that is flexible and is your own, then your Life will change for the good.
* The real world is your best teacher
Exploring and embracing nature, exploring and embracing social interaction … these are the best seats in the classroom.
Listen. Learn. Absorb. Real Life experiences leave longer lasting impressions.
* A goal is only as good as the meaning attached to it
Set goals that mean something. Not just a target or a number but true meaning. True meaning is value. True value is priceless.
The greater the meaning, the greater the intent to achieve it. So if you want your Life goals to be achieved, add a healthy dose of meaning.
* Be your own Artist
Create a Life that is yours and worth living. Express yourself in truth. Enjoy your Life’s work.
Find your Art. Live your Art. Creating, sculpting, growing, sharing … oh Yes!
* Ask for help when in trouble
Time is precious. When you strike trouble, seek to get out of it as quickly as possible.
So when you are “stuck” without answers, ask for help. Doing this will place more time in your hands rather than spending it confused.
There are many variants of these Life “rules” that you may apply to yourself. I believe that these 9 are a great start.
You may wish to have a shorter list and keep it simpler … which is a pretty good rule on it’s own … Life can easily get too complicated.
Feel free to comment and I’d love you to share on your favourite Social Media channels.
