In continuation to this “Life Theme” that I’ve been blogging about lately, I’ve come up with the brilliant idea of sharing seven principles to my life and how I choose to live it. I’m sure you’re all thinking, BOOOORING! Well ask your self, do you know what yours are? Ever though about it? I think you should, if you already haven’t. Personally I think life is made to be tweaked always, if you keep living it, in the same routine, day in and out, it becomes dull. You don’t want that or do you?
Anyways, moving on! There are gazzilions of principles that one chooses to live their life. I am not saying “My Seven” are the be all and end all, but they sure work for me and that’s all it matters, just like your work for you, whatever they may be. We as human beings, find different things interests, believe in different principles and are simply different one from another, no two people are the same. Baring that in mind, lets get started and right into it. Below are 7 Golden Rules to Living my Life and living it my way. Enjoy!
1. KISS – Keep It Simple Stupid
The key to this is to get rid of the crap out of your life and this includes crappy people. No essence in you having someone in your life as a downer. Life is meant to be shared and despite the fact that downsides sometimes are unavoidable and simply part of life, you want that person or those people to be the best they can to you, pending if you are good to them. Simply, if you are good to someone, you hope they are good to you. You are a valuable, honest, reliable friend and you want that in return. If not, then why be friends with them? Simply dump’em!
Second part of KISS, is to keep your life orginized. You have to implement some routine, plan ahead and above all be happy with the choices you make. Don’t make it hard on your self, than it already is. Orginize your work area, kitchen and home. This way, you will know where things are, less energy spent on search and more time enjoying life. Take a simple approach to everything you do, sometimes you need to live on the edge and above all don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone.
2. Me being Me
As you may know, there is a saying that goes something like this: “I’d rather be disliked for the person that I am, than be liked for the person I’m pretending to be“. I will never be someone I am not. I’m quite aware of who I am, what I offer, my strengths & weaknesses and above all have huge belief in my self. I am not perfect, not perfect for all, nor do I want to be, but am perfect for some, the select, be it a friend, lover, husband (one day) or employee. I know what’s important to me, what makes me happy. I constantly strive for better, make tweaks to me (I’m version 1.04 currently) and inspire change with open arms.
3. Rebel in Me
Life is not about what you can’t do, but rather the opposite on what you can do. I don’t dwell too much on the things I can’t do, but focus that much more into the things I am good at. With that being said, I always keep pushing the limit and striving to become more. I choose not to obey all the rules, because simply rules are meant to be broken.
4. Permission? What Permission?
I used to wait for permission, that glorious 10 letter word. Waiting for someones approval. For what? Only to be disappointed in the end. That being said, I threw that out the window and live simply by this saying; “I’d rather beg for forgiveness, than ask for permission“. Boy, have parts of my life changed drastically. Now I just go ahead and do it. Especially in my line of work. Things take way less time. I feel more confident and I don’t have to seek someone else’s approval to do a task. Furthermore I’ve implemented this into my life as well. Gone are those days, waiting for others to make up their mind, hoping things improve or simply seeking approval for anyone on anything. Now, I just go do it and I do it for me.
5. Aint gona let you bring me down, Aint gona let you take my stride!
I’m a doer. I make it happen, one way or another and never afraid to ask for help if I need it. There are a lot of people who like to cruise along, as you pickup the workload. Fortunately for me, hard life lessons and elimination of friendships, have made me change my ways for good. Today I am still a doer, but much more wiser. Why? Because I eliminated the negativity from my life and don’t worry anymore what others say or think. I used to, but not anymore. I am back and better than ever.
In conclusion, I will leave you with this: Always remember, your inner is more important than the outer.
