10 Essentials Rules For A Happier Life

“Never be satisfied, and always push yourself. Do the things people say cannot be done. Be willing to keep trying.”

1. Be private and lowkey

Don’t tell people more than they need to know. They can’t mess with what they don’t know.

2. Rules about your career

At every job, you should either earn or learn. Either is fine. Both are best. But if it’s neither, quit.

3. Live in the present

It means letting go of the past and not waiting for the future. Today is the right day to believe, love, do, and mostly live.

4. Ask yourself these two questions

When you’re making tough choices and deciding what to do in a certain situation, ask yourself…

a. What would my future self in five years decide?
b. What is the end goal I want from this?

Sometimes life seems busy or stressful because we’re sitting in confusion in our heads. Whenever I feel this way, I ask these questions, and I usually get the answer I need.

5. Create a list of three priorities for everyday

Do this night before. Instead of keeping crazy to-do lists, create a to-do list at night with three priorities for the next day.

List them in order of importance. This way, anything beyond the list is extra.

6. Intentionally choose your relationships

So many of us are spread way too thin. Instead of spending 256 seconds with 15,000 people.

Try to spend more time with fewer people. Your life is only as good as the quality relationships you keep.

7. Practice saying "no" once a day

Saying no is one of the best ways to cut things from your life. The easier it is for you to say no, the more likely you’ll say no.

The way to get good at it is to start small and to do it often. I suggest practicing saying no once a day for little things. Just do it intentionally and see how much easier it gets.

8. Refuse to indulge in "I don't know" or being "stuck"

Instead of allowing yourself to sit in “I don’t know,” switch to “I’m figuring it out.”

At least this gives you momentum. Like Wayne Dyer says, “You are not stuck unless you decide to be.”

9. Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish

Never be satisfied, and always push yourself. Do the things people say cannot be done (or be willing to keep trying).

10. Rules about money

I’m not after the money. I’m after the freedom that comes with having money. Two very different goals.

Thanks for reading. I hope y’all had a good day. If not, that’s okay too. Remember to take care of yourself and try to get some sleep.
