The Personal Experiment

Life Instructions

Posted by sibbia on August 7, 2007

Too often we have been taught how to survive but not thrive. 
We learn or were taught how to cope but not change. 
We manage to function but not live. 

Here are some thoughts to help change that:

Accept responsibility for everything that happens in your life, both good and bad.

Respect yourself and others.

Learn to truly love yourself and extend that love to others.

Read about and study every subject important in your life:  relationships, finances, career, spirituality…

Wisdom comes from within, seek it out daily.

Take risks.  Go out on a limb — that’s where the fruit is.

When you fall down, GET BACK UP!  (and don’t spend another moment thinking or talking about the day you fell down)

Take the road less traveled and be willing to go where the path leads you.

Write down your goals.  Define them, review them and pursue them.

Dwell on only what you want.  You cannot afford the luxury of a negative thought. 

Make a habit of daily prayer and affirmation

And above all…

Live, love, be happy!

    I think the last line is the best. “Live, love, be happy!” SImple, but beautiful. Just focus on that and your life can be great.
