Rules Of Being A Human

Something I read yesterday and really linked it, so posting it here




1.     You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it's yours to keep for the entire period.


2.     You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called, "life."


3.     There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial, error, and experimentation. The "failed" experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiments that ultimately "work."


4.     Lessons are repeated until they are learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can go on to the next lesson.


5.     Learning lessons does not end. There's no part of life that doesn't contain its lessons. If you're alive, that means there are still lessons to be learned.


6.     "There" is no better a place than "here." When your "there" has become a "here", you will simply obtain another "there" that will again look better than "here."


7.     Other people 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 within you. The answers to life's questions lie within you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.


10.     You will forget all this.

Thanks for sharing such a wonderful list. My favorite is number 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.

I follow simple rules that have always made sure that I am successful in whatever I do - do everything with sincerity and never be the reason of sadness in anyone's life.

Cheers
