11 Rules for a Successful Life

// Thread //
1. Family Comes First

Never forget who was by your side, from the start.

Make time for:

- Your family
- Your friends
- Your partner
- Your children

Family first. Work second.
2. Invest in Yourself

Never lose your childlike curiosity.

Be a life-long learner by:

- Reading books
- Taking online courses
- Learning from mentors
- Experiencing new things

The highest ROI comes from investing in yourself.
3. Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

"Comparison is the thief of joy" - Theodore Roosevelt

Focus on:

- Your purpose
- Your experience
- Owning your feelings
- Turning your attention inward

The only competition is staring back at you in the mirror.
4. Find a Support System

You are a product of your environment.

Surround yourself with people who are:

- Kind
- Honest
- Positive
- Energetic
- Supportive
- Inspirational

Choose your friends sparingly and wisely.
5. It's Ok to Say "I Need Help"

People often underestimate the odds of others wanting to help.

Studies indicate that people will like us more when we ask for their help.

Don't be afraid to ask for help.

The worst thing someone can say is "no."
6. Accept Your Past and Move On

Stop getting stuck in your past.

Learn from your past to make a better future.

The present is the only place you can:

- Act
- Live
- Love

Life is short. Don't waste it.
7. It Doesn't Matter What Others Think

Don't live someone else's life.

How to cut distractions:

- Follow your heart
- Follow your passion
- Follow your intuition

Stop listening to the opinions of others, listen to your inner voice.
8. You Believe What You Tell Yourself

Moderate your inner dialogue.

When you say:

- I am healthy
- I am a leader
- I am successful
- I am an investor
- I am a pre-millionaire

...You change your mindset.

When you change your mindset, you change your life.
9. Be Grateful for What you Have

"I cried because I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet" - Helen Keller

Be thankful for:

- Your life
- Your job
- Your home
- Your family
- Your health

Be thankful for what you have, no matter how "small."
10. Respect Yourself, Like you Want Others to Respect You

People learn how to treat you based on how you treat yourself.

How to respect yourself:

- Take action
- Accept yourself
- Cut out negative people

You are in control of how you will be treated.
11. Thoughts Become Things

Filter out negativity to prevent negative thoughts.

Cut out the noise:

- Remove angry music
- Remove negative news
- Remove violent movies
- Remove negative people

You are what you consume - both mentally and physically.
