The 15 Invaluable Lessons of Life That NO ONE Tells You About

LESSON 1: YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN RULES

… BUT, BE PREPARED TO LIVE WITH THEIR OUTCOMES

You’ve probably been told before ‘Do You’ but, the truth is no one really ensures it hits home like reality does!

People will tell you that things are done a certain way, there’s always a set pattern, a set framework that works just fine and should not be disrupted.

That’s something to consider, but, what if there was a better, easier, faster, smarter way to do things? Wouldn’t you want to find out?

Ultimately, take charge of your life or you will be at the mercy of the decision of others. Life will not deal fairly with you just because you live by its rules. Life is the masters of curveballs and, it will throw anything it gets at you at will. Know your boundaries, set your rules and, arm yourself with enough ammo to charge when life comes at you


‘What if there was a better, easier, faster, smarter way to do things? Wouldn’t you want to find out?’

Rules are good…making your own rules can be even better. The important thing, however, is to set rules that you can live with. When your rules stop working or when they give undesirable consequences, you will be the one to bear the biggest brunt of it. This means that you have to consider all possible outcomes and be sure that you can deal with the possibility of every outcome.

REALITY CHECK!

  1. Is your life going the way you want or, are you living for others?
  2. If you could change something about your life, what would it be?
  3. If you set new rules, what is the worst that could happen?
  4. Can you live with the ‘worst that could happen’?
