Here are some suggestions of rules that you might apply to your life as you race towards your success:
- Wherever you are be fully there.Turn up the level of your awareness. Really see what you see and hear what you hear. She who is most aware of her environment is best able to master it. So imagine that your awareness is a lamp. Make sure it is trimmed and burning bright and you must keep turning up the wick of your awareness so your lamp burns brighter and brighter with every passing moment. And focus your awareness inside – on what you are feeling and thinking, as well as on the circumstances outside. Human beings are the only animals capable of focusing awareness inside and outside at the same time. Make use of this most powerful asset.
-Harbour no bitterness towards anyone. Walk around with a basket full of forgiveness and throw a handful of it right in the face of anyone who offends you. Life is just too short to spend any portion of it nursing animosities and registering wrongs and grumbling about the past. Nurturing resentment is like feeding a snake that will turn around and bite you to death.
-Love unselfishly. Love is a verb. Perform outrageous acts of love – at least once everyday. Do it at home. Do it at work. Do it on the street.
-Give your life away in service to others. See yourself as a channel of blessing to others especially those who are suffering in some way. Let “How may I serve” be the guiding principle of your daily life. Service fuels success.
-Cultivate and practice 9 qualities in your life. Write them down the old fashion way on a card and also put them in your phone or i-pad and think about them everyday: Love, Joy, peace, patience, kindness, humility, generosity, empathy and self control. Measure your actions by these 9 factors.
-Set your financial house in order
-Get out of debt. Revisit what you spend money on that offers little meaningful reward and can be easily dropped. Do you spend 2 weeks of your life working for money that brings you only a moment’s pleasure that is quickly forgotten? Money earned represents a piece of your heart. Use it well.
