Change your life forever with these 5 rules
What you see and believe is unique to you. Your view of the world has been shaped by every event and experience in your life. When you judge someone else you do so within the confines of your experiences and understanding of the world. Do not make the mistake of liking someone more, just because they agree with you.
Just as your opinion is based on your perspective you must accept the same of everyone else. When you recognise this you will no longer take offence or be upset by the words and actions of others. Listen to what people say, but choose not to be upset by it. Their opinion is no more a fact than yours.
Money, fame and material possessions can provide happiness but it will be an empty happiness. The people and events that touch you will enrich your life beyond any possession. Enjoy yourself; play; share your successes and failures and your passion and love of what excites and energises you. Do this and you will be rich beyond your wildest dreams.
Do your best
When you are well and full of energy your best will be amazing. When you are ill or in turmoil you will most likely feel less able. As long as you do your best you can forgive yourself and move on. Your best will grow with learning, practice and above all, perseverance.
Believe in yourself
The only barrier to achievement is you. You can overcome anything if you get up more times than you fall. When faced with an obstacle, focus on how to overcome it rather than how it affects you. If you let negative thoughts fill your mind you will waste your energy on them. Channel your energy towards resolving the problem and you will overcome it sooner.
In addition to these rules please consider the following quotes from some truly great people:
You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist – Golda Meir
To be wronged is nothing unless you continue to remember it – Confucius
We do not cease to play because we grow old; we grow old because we cease to play. – George Bernard Shaw
In every big thing or achievement there are always obstacles, big or small, and the reaction one shows to such obstacles is what counts, not the obstacle itself - Bruce Lee
