Ten Rules Of My Life

Rules of Life
Rules of Life

Through experience, all of us accumulate some life lessons that become operating principles for how to live life. I wanted to share some of the fundamental philosophies that I have tried to adopt for myself. These are the rules of my life.

  1. If something does not kill me, it is undoubtedly a life lesson, and it will make me stronger and better than where I am today.
  2. Don’t waste time and energy on things you can’t control.
  3. It does not matter how good or bad your situation is today. Be sure; it will change. So maturity is in being balanced irrespective of whether the situation is very good or very bad.
  4. When you are in a state of stress of any sort, pay attention to your breathing. There is nothing more calming.
  5. Don’t sweat on what happened and instead focus on what is happening. Be present. 
  6. Envy is a waste of time. You already have everything you need. 
  7. Invest in your fitness and health for your family’s sake.
  8. As a parent, what you DO speaks louder than what you SAY. Your children will be influenced by what you do and not what you say.
  9. What others think of you matters less than what you think of yourself.
  10. Positive thinking does not guarantee success, but negative thinking will certainly guarantee failure.
