10 Simple Rules For Life

10 Simple Rules For LifeIt is time again for one of these fun posts… Life can be complicated or it can be simple and my vote is to always keep things simple. So without any more rambling, here are 10 simple rules for life.

10 Simple Rules For Life

  1. Never compare where you are to where someone else is in life, that means do not compare your weaknesses to someone else’s strengths. I.e. Stay in your own lane.
  2. Take control of your own life and of your own mind and thoughts lest someone else do it for you. You are in charge of your life and you are the ONLY only that you want in charge of your life.
  3. Life deals the hands that it deals and it is up to you to play the hand that you are dealt to the best of your abilities. Folding is not an option in life.
  4. Learn what you are good at, your strengths, then foster and develop those. You will get much further doing that than wasting time and energy trying to become something that you are not.
  5. If you never take risks, you will never receive any rewards in life. That right there is the risk in not taking risks… you end up with nothing.
  6. Winning is good but it is through our losses when we learn the most. Never fear losing but instead fear never having the courage to get into the game.
  7. Do not waste your time justifying, explaining, or making excuses for yourself to others. They either get you or they do not and if they do not, maybe it is time for you to find those who will.
  8. Learn how to be happy on your own and by yourself. If you can not be happy with your own company, how can you ever expect anyone else to be?
  9. If you are bored and uninspired – then guess what? You are more than likely boring AND uninspiring. Boring is the opposite happy so don’t do that… always strive to set an example because you never know who is watching you and who you might be inspiring. Note: Someone is ALWAYS watching too.
  10. Don’t be an asshole… self-explantory. (The alternate title for this article.)

There you have it… 10 simple rules for life and they can’t get any simpler than that!
