Rules for Living
Posted 2/25/2016 by New & Improved, LLC

 

 

The emotional intelligence inherent in knowing these rules is a fundamental building block for innovation leadership.

 

"There is no such thing as a grown-up! There are only grow-ing ups and stuck people; that's it!

Be a grow-ing up."

                                                 ~ Bob Eckert


RULES FOR LIVING

1. YOU WILL RECEIVE A BODY
You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period this time around.

2. YOU WILL LEARN LESSONS
You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called life. Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may not like the lessons, or think them irrelevant and stupid.

3. THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, ONLY LESSONS
Growth is a process of trial and error: Experimentation. The "failed" experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiment that ultimately works.

4. A LESSON IS REPEATED UNTIL LEARNED
A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have leaned it. When you have learned it, you can go on to the next lesson.

5. LEARNING LESSONS DOES NOT END
There is no part of life that does not contain it's lessons. If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.

6. "THERE" IS NO BETTER THAN "HERE"
When your "there" has become a "here," you will simply obtain another "there" that will, again, look better than "here".

7. OTHERS ARE MERELY MIRRORS OF YOU
You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.

8. WHAT YOU MAKE OF YOUR LIFE IS UP TO YOU
You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.

9. YOUR ANSWERS LIE INSIDE OF YOU
The answers to life's questions lie inside you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.

10. YOU WILL FORGET ALL THIS

11. YOU WILL REMEMBER ALL THESE RULES AGAIN
