The Rulebook of Life

Unlike many people out there, I don’t hate email forwards. I jut don’t continue the chain. But once a while, there comes a piece of writing which compels you to forward. Like the one following. I received this just before penning all this text you are reading; couldn’t wait… It’s called Life’s Rulebook. I think it very beautifully summarizes the essence of a successful person. Indeed, it is something which every mom and dad can teach to their children.

  • Have a firm handshake.
  • Look people in the eye.
  • Sing in the shower.
  • Own a great stereo system.
  • If in a fight, hit first and hit hard.
  • Keep secrets.
  • Never give up on anybody. Miracles happen everyday.
  • Always accept an outstretched hand.
  • Be brave. Even if you’re not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference.
  • Whistle.
  • Avoid sarcastic remarks.
  • Choose your life’s mate carefully. From this one decision will come 90 percent of all your happiness or misery.
  • Make it a habit to do nice things for people who will never find out.
  • Lend only those books you never care to see again.
  • Never deprive someone of hope; it might be all that they have.
  • When playing games with children, let them win.
  • Give people a second chance, but not a third.
  • Be romantic.
  • Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.
  • Loosen up. Relax. Except for rare life-and-death matters, nothing is as important as it first seems.
  • Don’t allow the phone to interrupt important moments. It’s there for your convenience, not the caller’s.
  • Be a good loser.
  • Be a good winner.
  • Think twice before burdening a friend with a secret.
  • When someone hugs you, let them be the first to let go.
  • Be modest. A lot was accomplished before you were born.
  • Keep it simple.
  • Beware of the person who has nothing to lose.
  • Don’t burn bridges. You’ll be surprised how many times you have to cross the same river.
  • Live your life so that your epitaph could read, No Regrets
  • Be bold and courageous. When you look back on life, you’ll regret the things you didn’t do more than the one’s you did.
  • Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them.
  • Remember no one makes it alone. Have a grateful heart and be quick to acknowledge those who helped you.
  • Take charge of your attitude. Don’t let someone else choose it for you.
  • Visit friends and relatives when they are in hospital; you need only stay a few minutes.

    Howdy! This post couldn’t be written much better! Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate!
    He always kept preaching about this. I’ll forward this information to him.
    Pretty sure he will have a very good read.
    I appreciate you for sharing!
