Create Rules For Your Life That Serve You Well
Having rules that govern your life, behavior, and choices might seem confining and restrictive. But there’s a profound freedom that comes from living by a set of rules that you’ve chosen for yourself. You can refrain from toiling over as many decisions. You simply follow your own rules.

Suppose you had the rule that you’re never going to lie to your partner. Then you never have to fight with yourself about whether or not to tell the truth. You simply tell the truth and get on with life.

Develop your own set of rules for each aspect of your life. Rules provide the framework for having a more productive and stress-free life.
This example can guide you in creating a unique set of rules for your own life:

1. I always go to bed and get up at times that provide me with the opportunity to get a minimum of 8 hours of sleep.

2. I refrain from checking email before 10 AM or after 4 PM.

3. I refuse to answer the phone when I’m spending time with my family.

4. I tell everyone in my family that I love them at least once per day.

5. I accept full responsibility for all outcomes in my life, both good and bad.

6. I read a minimum of 30 minutes per day.

7. I speak to all of my friends at least once each month.

8. I meditate every night for 10 minutes before I go to sleep.

9. Before bed, I make a list of the most important items to complete the following day.

And so on.
Each week, we all make choices that result in guilty or remorseful feelings. But we also make tough decisions that we know are correct. Having a list of rules for your behavior makes it easier to make wise decisions with less mental turmoil.

Your rules can move you closer to your goals, as well as remove frustration from your life.

Follow these tips to develop your own rules:

1. Make a list of your most important goals. It’s helpful to have goals related to your finances, health, family, and personal accomplishments. If you know your goals, you can develop rules that support them.

2. What are your values? When you’re behaving in a manner that’s congruent with your values, you’ll be much happier and more successful.

3. What obstacles stand in your way? How do you waste time? What are your weaknesses? Rules that eliminate or minimize the challenges in your life are worthwhile.

4. What example do you want to set for your children? If you have children, what do you want them to see when they watch you? They’re always watching, even if you think they aren’t.

Most of us are striving for a greater degree of freedom, and rules seem like a limit to freedom. However, you free up a lot of mental resources when you make important decisions beforehand. If your rule is to exercise every day, then you can avoid having to spend 20 minutes deciding whether or not to exercise. You just do it.

Take the time to make your own set of rules. The number doesn’t matter. Start with a couple and add more as you see fit. Make some rules for yourself in order to set yourself free.

Inner cheer is destroyed by a conscience which bites. Learn to do everything in a worthwhile way. It’s an art which teaches you to appreciate your inner beauty (It makes you think twice about ruining it, too)

Don’t be hard on yourself when making a mistake. It’s much more effective to be handled with love. Telling the self off is a terrible habit, it subtly shapes a nature of sorrow.

Finish the business of thinking of rubbish and instead take delight in all that you’ve found.

Telling my creator that I am thankful for the things I have in my life is so empowering – I can actually see the effect of my gratitude manifesting itself in my everyday life. I have come to realize that each time I open my eyes on a new day, that is a gift in itself, and a new day represents a chance for a fresh start.

Hearts on the Ground

“Boots on the ground’’ is a military expression meaning ground forces actually fighting in a war or conflict, rather than troops not engaged or other military action such as air strikes. Hearts on the ground goes with ‘boots on the ground’, or in other words, leave the heart’s feelings of love buried in the dark to facilitate the ‘killing fields’ of consciousness. Human’s are reduced to their lowest primary behaviors when life is reduced to survive or die, as well to serve the false self for temporary gratification no matter at what or who’s expense.

Head in the clouds, feet on the ground, and heart all around on top of and in the world of love. Stay in the moment here and now and choose life’s gift qualities. In that we are all equal. ‘Home care’ is a 24 hour service that everyone has for themselves. No college degree necessary! Turn to the inside while knowing that the outside is just for entertainment or methods of survival. The enemy is disregarding the inner qualities that serve to make you the new man or woman of superconsciousness.

Inner slavery is to freeze the growth of inner qualities such as self awareness, empathy, compassion, and all qualities of love. When the qualities are left to gather dust while outer needs are given most of attention, your love tank is depleted, even running on fumes so that ‘fear fumes’ arise easily to replace the positive qualities.

You have ‘wheels of energy’ called chakras that move from the base of the spine through the body up to what’s called the crown or god chakra at the top of the head. There are, generally agreed upon, seven chakras representing different qualities of the psychological, emotional, and spiritual self. The openness and balance of these seven chakras is to maximize healthy living in love with the opposite equating to fear or denial of the harmony of all higher qualities of the inner you.

Boots on the ground in a positive way is to face what needs to be faced using the ‘real’ to deal with life instead of seeing life from above the clouds in the ways of a drone that has little sense of life on the ground in a personal way. The heart and mind in balance with common sense, tolerance, empathy, an inquiring mind, and the ability to see your limitations of those qualities and more while constantly looking to maximize their limits is the beginning of the superconscious human of the 21st century and beyond. It begins with you the individual who can start and fire up the opening of chakras of the many in the world endlessly. Love can be a domino effect starting with you and the next, the next, and ….!

Kundalini

The physical body is a living machine through which the higher bodies express themselves. In blocking off the physical body, one also blocks the expressions of the higher self. One can feel or think a good deal, but if one denies physical reflection or action, one may become perturbed and are subjected to further troubles. Problems which manifest in the physical body as aches, pains, or sickness are basically the consequence of blocks, hindering the expression of higher bodies.

The physical body is composed of cells discernible by their own individuality. One must not keep these cells under a conscious control or commanding control, but a loving one. If one looks at the physical body as a universe unto itself, each human being is ‘god’ of their own universe. The physical body possesses two parts- the dense and the etheric; the etheric is very intimately associated with the nervous system.

Cleansing the Physical
One can use Kundalini on the physical level to attain a healthier body. The modus operandi of directing Kundalini having been learned, energy may be sent to diverse areas of the body for rebuilding, curing and strengthening. Working with it, one develops a sense of how much to send to each area and how it works best.

Letting the Kundalini flow tenderly into the area in need of healing- changing it to the quality of liquid silk- is very comforting, the frequency of the energy changes to one more beneficial to general healing. One can bathe a singular area in this energy. Next, he or she can disseminate the energy throughout the whole body. Several sessions a week can increase circulation, helps in releasing blockages and generally helps in sustaining a youthful body.

Faced with a need for bigger than normal physical exertion fills the body with the power of Kundalini; one needs to breathe it throughout the whole body, and then let it flow through and then perform the task.

When physically affected by the several hurts and pains, stemming from raised Kundalini effect, encourages release with deep, peaceful breathing, followed by massage in the affected area; one needs to allow thoughts and feelings to come to their consciousness. Such an open meditation can be most helpful. If one cannot, for some reason, he or she should massage the affected area (perhaps it is too painful), focus the attention on that area instead; one should concentrate their energy there and go into the discomfort. Often the aches and pains leave in a short while and one develops a memory or consciousness of what has happened.

The Ultimate
The physical body, purified and refined by the Kundalini, will seem youthful and be pretty energetic. It will hardly ever be ill (or illness will occur for a short span of time), possess immense power, and be competent of clairvoyant achievements.

Truths Everyone Forgets Too Soon

You know how you can hear something a hundred times in a hundred different ways before it finally gets through to you? The ten truths listed below fall firmly into that category – life lessons that many of us likely learned years ago, and have been reminded of ever since, but for whatever reason, haven’t fully grasped.
This, my friends, is my attempt at helping all of us, myself included, “get it” and “remember it” once and for all…
1. The average human life is relatively short.
We know deep down that life is short, and that death will happen to all of us eventually, and yet we are infinitely surprised when it happens to someone we know. It’s like walking up a flight of stairs with a distracted mind, and misjudging the final step. You expected there to be one more stair than there is, and so you find yourself off balance for a moment, before your mind shifts back to the present moment and how the world really is.
LIVE your life TODAY! Don’t ignore death, but don’t be afraid of it either. Be afraid of a life you never lived because you were too afraid to take action. Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside you while you’re still alive. Be bold. Be courageous. Be scared to death, and then take the next step anyway.
2. You will only ever live the life you create for yourself.
Your life is yours alone. Others can try to persuade you, but they can’t decide for you. They can walk with you, but not in your shoes. So make sure the path you decide to walk aligns with your own intuition and desires, and don’t be scared to switch paths or pave a new one when it makes sense.
Remember, it’s always better to be at the bottom of the ladder you want to climb than the top of the one you don’t. Be productive and patient. And realize that patience is not about waiting, but the ability to keep a good attitude while working hard for what you believe in. This is your life, and it is made up entirely of your choices. May your actions speak louder than your words. May your life preach louder than your lips. May your success be your noise in the end.
And if life only teaches you one thing, let it be that taking a passionate leap is always worth it. Even if you have no idea where you’re going to land, be brave enough to step up to the edge of the unknown, and listen to your heart. (Angel and I discuss this in more detail in the “Passion and Growth” chapter of 1,000 Little Things Happy, Successful People Do Differently.)
3. Being busy does NOT mean being productive.
Busyness isn’t a virtue, nor is it something to respect. Though we all have seasons of crazy schedules, very few of us have a legitimate need to be busy ALL the time. We simply don’t know how to live within our means, prioritize properly, and say no when we should.
Being busy rarely equates to productivity these days. Just take a quick look around. Busy people outnumber productive people by a wide margin. Busy people are rushing all over the place, and running late half of the time. They’re heading to work, conferences, meetings, social engagements, etc. They barely have enough free time for family get-togethers and they rarely get enough sleep. Yet, emails are shooting out of their smart phones like machine gun bullets, and their day planners are jammed to the brim with obligations. Their busy schedule gives them an elevated sense of importance. But it’s all an illusion. They’re like hamsters running on a wheel.
Though being busy can make us feel more alive than anything else for a moment, the sensation is not sustainable long term. We will inevitably, whether tomorrow or on our deathbed, come to wish that we spent less time in the buzz of busyness and more time actually living a purposeful life.
4. Some kind of failure always occurs before success.
Most mistakes are unavoidable. Learn to forgive yourself. It’s not a problem to make them. It’s only a problem if you never learn from them.
If you’re too afraid of failure, you can’t possibly do what needs to be done to be successful. The solution to this problem is making friends with failure. You want to know the difference between a master and a beginner? The master has failed more times than the beginner has even tried. Behind every great piece of art is a thousand failed attempts to make it, but these attempts are simply never shown to us.
Bottom line: Just because it’s not happening now, doesn’t mean it never will. Sometimes things have to go very wrong before they can be right. (Read The Success Principles.)

5. Thinking and doing are two very different things.
Success never comes to look for you while you wait around thinking about it.
You are what you do, not what you say you’ll do. Knowledge is basically useless without action. Good things don’t come to those who wait; they come to those who work on meaningful goals. Ask yourself what’s really important and then have the courage to build your life around your answer.
And remember, if you wait until you feel 100% ready to begin, you’ll likely be waiting the rest of your life.
6. You don’t have to wait for an apology to forgive.
Life gets much easier when you learn to accept all the apologies you never got. The key is to be thankful for every experience – positive or negative. It’s taking a step back and saying, “Thank you for the lesson.” It’s realizing that grudges from the past are a perfect waste of today’s happiness, and that holding one is like letting unwanted company live rent free in your head.
Forgiveness is a promise – one you want to keep. When you forgive someone you are making a promise not to hold the unchangeable past against your present self. It has nothing to do with freeing a criminal of his or her crime, and everything to do with freeing yourself of the burden of being an eternal victim.
7. Some people are simply the wrong match for you.
You will only ever be as great as the people you surround yourself with, so be brave enough to let go of those who keep bringing you down. You shouldn’t force connections with people who constantly make you feel less than amazing.
If someone makes you feel uncomfortable and insecure every time you’re with them, for whatever reason, they’re probably not close friend material. If they make you feel like you can’t be yourself, or if they make you “less than” in any way, don’t pursue a connection with them. If you feel emotionally drained after hanging out with them or get a small hit of anxiety when you are reminded of them, listen to your intuition. There are so many “right people” for you, who energize you and inspire you to be your best self. It makes no sense to force it with people who are the wrong match for you.

8. It’s not other people’s job to love you; it’s yours.
It’s important to be nice to others, but it’s even more important to be nice to yourself. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world. So make sure you don’t start seeing yourself through the eyes of those who don’t value you. Know your worth, even if they don’t.
Today, let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as incomplete as you think you are. Yes, let someone love you despite all of this, and let that someone be YOU. (Read Love Yourself Like Your Life Depends On It.)
9. What you own is not who YOU are.
Stuff really is just stuff, and it has absolutely no bearing on who you are as a person. Most of us can make do with much less than we think we need. That’s a valuable reminder, especially in a hugely consumer-driven culture that focuses more on material things than meaningful connections and experiences.

You have to create your own culture. Don’t watch TV, don’t read every fashion magazine, and don’t consume too much of the evening news. Find the strength to fill your time with meaningful experiences. The space and time you are occupying at this very moment is LIFE, and if you’re worrying about Kim Kardashian or Lebron James or some other famous face, then you are disempowered. You’re giving your life away to marketing and media trickery, which is created by big companies to ultimately motivate you to want to dress a certain way, look a certain way, and be a certain way. This is tragic, this kind of thinking. It’s all just Hollywood brainwashing. What is real is YOU and your friends and your family, your loves, your highs, your hopes, your plans, your fears, etc.
Too often we’re told that we’re not important, we’re just peripheral to what is. “Get a degree, get a job, get a car, get a house, and keep on getting.” And it’s sad, because someday you’ll wake up and realize you’ve been tricked. And all you’ll want then is to reclaim your mind by getting it out of the hands of the brainwashers who want to turn you into a drone that buys everything that isn’t needed to impress everyone that isn’t important.
10. Everything changes, every second.
Embrace change and realize it happens for a reason. It won’t always be obvious at first, but in the end it will be worth it.

What you have today may become what you had by tomorrow. You never know. Things change, often spontaneously. People and circumstances come and go. Life doesn’t stop for anybody. It moves rapidly and rushes from calm to chaos in a matter of seconds, and happens like this to people every day. It’s likely happening to someone nearby right now.

Sometimes the shortest split second in time changes the direction of our lives. A seemingly innocuous decision rattles our whole world like a meteorite striking Earth. Entire lives have been swiveled and flipped upside down, for better or worse, on the strength of an unpredictable event. And these events are always happening.
However good or bad a situation is now, it will change. That’s the one thing you can count on. So when life is good, enjoy it. Don’t go looking for something better every second. Happiness never comes to those who don’t appreciate what they have while they have it.

Reactive Drama

Should certain people in your life be ‘red flagged’ for ‘danger may unnecessarily have reactions to things you say’, and with no ill intent on your part?

Fear and ignorance hide behind most reactions to stimuli, and that stimuli is often from a false perception of words emanating from someone else. Fear and reactiveness can be instinctual and protective, or practical for survival like the bird that flies off when approached, or the caution we use when crossing the street. The ‘drama’ occurs when someone has acquired the unnecessary habit to react to words that seem to evoke their ego’s negative response called ‘reaction’ or jumping to false conclusions.

It’s even a form of censorship that, unknowingly to the perpetrator, blocks smooth dialog. Sadly, many people who are otherwise fine people, limit quality dialog interaction by eliciting reactions that puts others into a fear of being able to communicate anything. The ‘receiver’ of reactivity, cantankerousness, or just bad temper are often ignited to react where they wouldn’t have otherwise. The easily irritated and snippet, short fused initiator of ‘reactionary drama’ is asleep to their non awareness of the problem they are constantly spreading. They are likely in denial of it, especially if they have a circle of people who ‘tip toe’ around them to avoid confrontation to keep the friendship or avoid confrontation. The friendship becomes based in part on ‘censorship’.

Some places on earth, like some people, you have to go deep to get water, or with people, to go deeper for love to come up. In both cases, it’s always there. The sustenances of life are not always easily or readily available when not in the form of insight, tolerance, trust, patience, etc. When needed, many positive qualities are there be they under the surface, and not easily apparent or easily overlooked. Irritability and prickly behavior needs to be either owned in relation to others all the time, or better yet, downgraded with intention, meditation and more self love in letting go of what causes the irritant.

Anyone at ease, and at ‘one with themselves’ with an open heart will not be a ‘carrier of fractious behavior that puts another on the defensive. Rarely is it an easy task to convey another’s quirks. If you’re the one with the challenging behavior, then you can own that you have it, practice admitting it frequently to others. That is being kind to them, and at the same time deepening your awareness of the problem. Commit to the intent to change the habit. Meditation will help. Life is short, why not give yourself the best you have ‘within’ as well as to others?! Dialog in communication is an art. Be an artist of communication!

Puppet People

You invent your reality, or others do it for you! To be really free, you have to invent your life as much as you want to or is possible. When arising from our schooling at 18, the world has many roads to take, some overlapping the others. Your personal life choices, may occur simultaneous with a choice of further schooling, athletics, work, religion, romance, etc. Pandoras box of opportunities creates a bit of confusion, even chaos, but starting suddenly in a life of infinite ways to go is an overload of decision possibilities.

It’s YOUR WORLD! Only your ignorance enslaves you. Beliefs are the roads unknown. Don’t get stuck in them for they are only to lead to ‘knowing’. But once you change those beliefs, once you create new beliefs that lead to knowing more to enrich your life then life meets with the harmonies in your soul. You have the power, you just have to use it, apply it so that it works for you. When you do that you will find a better way to express your life and things change. That power of conscious choice is within you. You are the writer, producer, director, stage hands, actor, and even the audience. Your stage on the world is now, right here in the moment.

The world is not a toy land! You just don’t roll over on command! The world has for millions of years been in an evolutionary process, particularly for the humanoid who is for the first time able to make an unbelievable jump in consciousness both individually and collectively, right here today!

Conforming to that which is to enhance your everyday safety is one thing, but thinking and living (which is existing) in a box of information from controlling sources whether it be the mainstream media, political pablum, unquestioned religion, a god who pulls strings at will, or what is the easy, safe, non social activist way is all tantamount to being a ‘sheeple’ who can be used by the many systems. You become a puppet of routine, shutdown mentally, emotionally as well as spiritually ‘inert’. The ‘puppet strings’ you have leading your life are feeding someone else’s agenda of power and control which might just be a ‘belief system’ written centuries ago by men lacking information available today on how the world works.

You, in the end, are the puppet and puppeteer. Always be letting go and seeking truths that are evolutionary to your life and love. You are the only living thing that has a tool box to fix what hampers your evolution. Give the tool of meditating a place of importance in your life to unattach from negative images that limit your freedom and love of self and life.

There were three ships which were nearby when the Titanic sunk.

One of them was known as the Sampson. It was 7 miles away from the Titanic and they saw the white flares signaling danger, but because the crew had been hunting seals illegally and didn’t want to be caught, they turned and went the opposite direction away from the Titanic. This ship represents us and people like us if we are so busy looking inward at our own sin and lives that we can’t recognize when someone else… is in need.

The next ship was the Californian. This ship was only 14 miles away from the Titanic, but they were surrounded by ice fields and the captain looked out and saw the white flares, but because the conditions weren’t favorable and it was dark, he decided to go back to bed and wait until morning. The crew tried to convince themselves that nothing was happening. This ship represents those of us who say I can’t do anything now. The conditions aren’t right for it and so we wait until conditions are perfect before going out.

The last ship was the Carpathia. This ship was actually headed in a southern direction 58 miles away from the Titanic when they heard the distress cries over the radio. The captain of this ship knelt down, prayed to God for direction and then turned the ship around and went full steam ahead through the ice fields. This was the ship that saved the 705 survivors of the Titanic.

When the captain looked back at the ice fields they had come through, he said Someone else hands must have been at the helm of this ship! This ship represents those who would pray to God for direction and then go without hesitation.

Life whispers in your soul and speaks to your heart. We need to take time to listen and to these whispers and take heed.

35 Life Lessons, Wisdom and Advice for my Child

Below is a list of 35 of my favorite life lessons, and pieces of wisdom, that I’ve heard (and not always listened to but usually wish that I had) throughout my life. This list of advice comes from a wide variety of sources: from my grandparents…to Oprah…to complete strangers who have an unusually great perspective on life. I’m always thankful to find this advice handy in my memory, and I’d like it to be prevalent in my life. Most of all, I want this advice to be accessible to my daughter as she gets old – and that is the reason that I created this post.

1. Don’t give someone a “hammer” to hit you over the head with.

This is a figure of speech. My grandfather told this to my mom while she was growing up – what it means is to be careful with what you do, say and share with people. You don’t want something that you have done, or said, to one day come back and bite you (or, rather, to come back as the “hammer” (so to speak) that hits you over the head later on down the road).

2. Before you speak, picture whatever it is that you are about to say on the chalkboard in front of your classroom with your name underneath it, or on Facebook.

Do you still want to say it?

3. Beware of the unintended consequences of gossiping.

Before you indulge in gossiping about other people behind their back(s), beware of the impression that you may be giving off to the people who are listening to you. Keep in mind that the person(s) that you are talking to may then start wondering what you say behind her own back and they may re-consider your potential loyalty as a friend.

4. “You wouldn’t care so much about what other people thought of you if you knew how little that they really did.”

Yes. Ok, fine! This piece of advice is quoted from Dr. Phil; and yes, I admit it – I used to enjoy watching “Dr. Phil”. Remember to tell yourself that you would not care what other people thought about you if you truly knew how little that they actually do think about you. When you’re worried about what other people think of you, tell yourself this: “Other people aren’t paying as much attention to me as I am, so I shouldn’t worry about every little thing I do.” Most of the time, people are thinking about themselves – not you.

5. Let go of what you can’t change, and don’t worry about things that you have no control over.

More importantly, learn how to identify what these things look like in your life (e.g., the weather, your test results, etc.), because putting your energy into something that you can’t change or control is a waste of time, energy, and sleep; and it will drain you.

6. You can never be happy with someone else until you are happy with yourself.

7. Remember that not everyone is going to like you, and that some people are just mean for no apparent reason.

Some people get their “psychological jollies” out of making you feel sad and down because then it makes them feel better about themselves. Don’t lose sleep over getting “in” with the “cool” crowd. Exude confidence (not arrogance); remember that you teach people how to treat you; and then, friends will follow from there.

8. Be kind to other people.

You have no idea what those next to you may be going through in their own lives. “Don’t judge a man until you’ve walked two moons in his shoes” (this is a quote from a book that I read in 4th grade called “Walk Two Moons”); this means that you cannot judge a man until you’ve ‘walked’ at least 2-days (or, rather, “2-moons”) in ‘his shoes.’ (Walk Two Moons is a great book to read with your child to encourage empathy).

9. Do not cry at work.

Crying is perfectly fine, but try not to cry at work (easier said, than done). If you do cry, DO NOT make a scene.

10. Remember that there’s always someone out there who has it worse than you do.

Any time there is a situation where you don’t get your way, remember that there are people in this world that never even had the opportunity.
Remember that there’s always someone out there who has it worse than you do.

11. When you’re wrong, apologize.

Apologizing does not always mean that you were wrong and the other person was right. Sometimes it just means that you value the relationship more than your ego.

12. Here are the steps to a real apology:

Fully acknowledge the offense – acknowledge what you are sorry about.
Offer a truthful explanation as to why your behavior occurred Do not offer an excuse – excuses merely deflect blame.
Offer a genuine expression of remorse. Do NOT say, “I’m sorry that you feel that way….” – that is a bogus apology that should be saved only for people who deserve it.
Ask what you can do to make things better, and then listen to what they say, and make sure that they know that you are listening.
(These steps were inspired by Oprah’s article on The Right Way to Apologize).
13. To be ‘wise’ means that you are able to admit when you don’t know the answer.

My dad taught me this: don’t pretend to know the answer to something if you don’t. Saying, “I don’t know,” is far better than pretending and potentially having people notice that you are B.S.ing – trust me, this will make you look like a much bigger idiot than simply not knowing the answer. If you don’t know the answer, but still want to contribute to the conversation, then you can say, “Well, if I had to make an educated guess, it would be….”.

14. If you need help, then you need to ask for it.

I learned this lesson the hard way at my first job out of college.

15. Never be friend to a person who is rude to waiters, or mean to animals.

16. Learn how to laugh at yourself.

You’re going to look like an ass at some (actually, many) point(s) in your life. You will look like less of an ass if you’re able to laugh at yourself about whatever it is that you did.

17. Remember that there is always something to be thankful for.

18. Never try to solve problems at night.

All problems seem worse at night, and everything seems like a bigger deal when you are tired. Go to sleep. The problem will probably not be as big of a deal in the morning. (If you’re tired and you’ve been drinking, you’re probably wrong anyway about whatever it is that you’re saying/arguing about – so again, just go to sleep, and deal with it in the morning!).

19. When you have a crisis and feel like your life is over, remember this advice that my grandfather used to say to my mom:
1 month from now, you won’t be hurting as badly.
6-months from now, you probably won’t even be thinking about it.
5-years from now, you might not even remember it.

20. What we see depends mainly on what we look for. So focus on where you want to be – not on where you don’t want to go.

My first time snowboarding was a nightmare – I skipped the “Bunny Hill” and arrogantly decided to start my first snow-boarding experience at the top of Vail mountain (a terrible idea for a first-time snow-boarder), and despite my extreme fear of running into a tree as I went down the Blue Diamond ski slope, I still found myself, time and time again, tangled up in the trees on the side of the mountain, struggling to get out of the white powder and back on the smoother snow trail. Then, a wise man in a blue snow-suit gave me wonderful words of advice, “Keep your eyes focused on where you want to go (which was the chair lift) – and not on where you don’t want to go (which was the trees at the side of the mountain)." Before he pointed this out to me, I had been so focused on not running into the trees on the side of the mountain that my eyes were literally focused on that stupid forest. So then, I took his advice, and I changed my focus and kept my eyes on the chair-lift at the bottom of the mountain. And guess what? It worked. This new mentality magically re-programmed my body and brought me to the chairlift (with no stops at the stupid trees). Don’t get me wrong: I still fell on my butt a lot on my way to the chairlift, but that was way better than ending up wrapped around the trunk of a pine tree under a pile of snow! I think this advice is a great analogy that can cross-over to our real, everyday life. Keep your focus on where you want to be – not your fears.

21. Never try to figure to out how you should solve a problem; focus on what you want the end result to be and then make decisions that you will help you get there. (Thank you, Dad.)

22. If you can’t sleep, fake it.

This advice was given to me by my daughter’s pediatrician (a woman that I never thought I would be quoting) the day that my daughter was born. Her pediatrician was emphasizing to me the importance of sleep for moms with a newborn. The reason she said this is because I had just expressed to her that I didn’t know if I could follow the advice that I had been given to “sleep when the baby sleeps” (which is, by the way, the most annoying advice EVER because 100+ people told me this after my baby was born). I didn’t understand how I would ever be able to change my sleep schedule, let alone be able to sleep sporadically throughout the middle of the day (as newborns nap every 2 hours). But guess what? This advice is great (at least for me). Even if you can’t fall asleep, “faking it” is the next best thing because resting has adds a considerable amount of value to the recharging of your mind and body too. The dishes can wait.

23. If you’re having trouble solving a problem after repeated attempts, then try a different approach.

According to some references, the definition of “insanity” is “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Try going about it in a different way.

24. If you don’t have time to do it right the first time, then when are you going to have time to do it over?

Don’t rush through an important task. Don’t “half-ass” it. If it’s difficult to do now, then it’s going to be even more annoying to go back and fix later.

25. Surround yourself with people who build you up.

Surround yourself with people who see greatness within you, even when you don’t see it yourself.

26. If you’re ever having trouble making conversation with other people, ask them about themselves.

People like talking about themselves (and/or their kids).

27. Only eat french fries that are hot and crispy and fresh.

My dad (who is kind of a health nut) instilled this idea in me growing up; I’m not a health nut, but I appreciate the logic behind this – if you’re going to eat something that’s bad for you, then do it right and make sure it tastes good! When you place your order, give the server a big smile and ask if you can wait for a fresh batch of french fries. If I’m going to get fatter from something – it better taste good.

28. The best time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.

29. Always bring chap-stick and a bottle of water to a job interview.

Nothing is worse than a dry mouth and/or chapped lips when you’re trying to talk someone into hiring you.

30. The Middle School (aka, Junior High) and High School phases suck for most girls. Remember that Middle School and High School are just short phases of your life.

The Middle School and High School crowd can be just plain mean. The social torture that many of us experience during our awkward Middle School and High School phases seems like a very cruel “right of passage” before we enter the best part of the rest of our lives – young adulthood. The “college phase” is so much better – if not the best.

31. Writing down your worries on paper before a big exam or a big presentation at work can help you relieve anxiety and help you perform better.

32. Never reply when you are angry. Never make a promise when you are happy. Never make a decision when you are sad.

33. If you don’t want anyone to find out, don’t do it.

34. Happiness is a choice – a choice to live your life with a certain state of mind.

Happiness usually doesn’t just come to you – at least not after childhood ends. You often have to fight for happiness. Remember that you are in charge of how you feel. Think happy. Be happy.
“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.” Mahatma Gandhi
“It is only possible to live happily ever after on a daily basis.” Margaret Bonanno
“Mistakes will be made. Failure will occur. You pick yourself up and carry on.” – Elizabeth Gilbert.

35. Follow your passion for your career.

To my daughter: My wish for you is that you follow what you are passionate about, because that is what you will be good at.

Be honest. Don’t monger over the pat. Accept your flaws. Flaws are beautiful. And define your worth. A policy of honesty can help you to eliminate the need for lies and make it more attractive to tell the truth.

“You are a Masterpiece”
– What an elevating speech – by Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Ji 🙏
“A plum once said, ‘just because a banana lover came by, I converted myself into a banana. Unfortunately, his taste changed after a few months and so I became an orange. When he said I was bitter I became an apple, but he went in search of grapes. Yielding to the opinions of so many people, I have changed so many times that I no more know who I am. How I wish I had remained a plum and waited for a plum lover.’
Just because a group of people do not accept you as you are, there is no necessity for you to strip yourself of your originality. You need to think good of yourself, for the world takes you at your own estimate. Never stoop down in order to gain recognition. Never let go of your true self to win a relationship.

In the long run, you will regret that you traded your greatest Glory – your uniqueness, for momentary validation. Even Gandhi was not accepted by many people. The group that does not accept you as YOU is not Your world.
There is a world for each one of you, where you shall reign as King/ Queen by just being yourself. Find that world… In fact, that world will find You.
What water can do, gasoline cannot and what copper can, gold cannot. The fragility of the ant enables it to move and the rigidity of the tree enables it to stay rooted. Everything and everybody has been designed with a Proportion of uniqueness to serve a purpose that we can fulfill only by being our unique self. You as you alone can serve your purpose and I as I alone can serve my purpose. You are here to be you… Just YOU.
There was a time in this world when a Krishna was required and he was sent; A time when a Christ was required and he was sent; a time when a Mahatma was required and he was sent; There came a time when you were required on this planet and hence you were sent. Let us be the best we can be.

In the history of the universe, there has been nobody like you and to the infinity of time to come, there will be no one like you. Existence should have loved you so much that it broke the mould after making you, so that another of your kind will never get repeated.
You are Original.
You are Rare.
You are Unique.
You are a Wonder.
You are a Masterpiece. .. Your Master’s piece.
Celebrate your Uniqueness.’

ONE CHOICE CAN CHANGE Your LIFE

One…
One tree can start a forest,
One smile can begin a friendship,
One hand can lift a soul,
One word can frame the goal,
One candle can wipe out darkness,
One laugh can conquer gloom,
One hope can raise our spirits,

And…one choice can change your life.

Think about that. One choice, just one, can change your life forever.
Simply put, your life today is what your choices have made it,
but with new choices, you can change directions this very moment.
