10 Cardinal Rules For Life

Make peace with your past, so it doesn’t spoil your present. Your past does not define your future – your actions and beliefs do. When your past calls, don’t answer, it has nothing new to say. The past is like using your rear-view mirror in the car, it’s good to glance back and see how far you’ve come, but if you stare too long you’ll miss what’s right in front of you…

Stop worrying about what others think of you. What others think of you is none of your business. What they think isn’t important. What is important is how you feel about yourself.

Time heals almost everything, give time, time. It takes time to heal. It takes time to recover. It takes time to reconnect and recharge. Give yourself time and don’t beat yourself up — its all a process. What’s that old saying? “f it doesn’t kills you, it will make you stronger?”

No one is the reason for your own happiness, except you yourself. Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment and joy in the world outside. Peace and happiness is found on the inside.

Don’t compare your life with others’, you have no idea what their journey is all about. Don’t judge a person till you’ve walked a mile in his shoes. If comparing is how you evaluate your worth, you will always be losing.

Stop thinking too much, it’s alright not to know all the answers. Sometime there is no answer, not going to be any answer, never has been an answer. That’s the answer! Just accept it, move on, NEXT!

Help others. Helping others is a cure. Not just for those who are in need, but for your soul as well.

Try new things. Don’t fear failure so much that you refuse to try new things. The saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have and should have.

A.S.K. – Always seek knowledge. An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.

Smile, you don’t own all the problems in the world. A smile can brighten the darkest day and make life more beautiful. It is a potential curve to turn a life around and set everything straight.
