Five rules to transform your attitude to life
I am not a fan of rules as they give a connotation of having to stick within limits, but I make an exception here. If you live by these, they will literally transform your life for the better.
Rule 1: Respect how others see the world
Each person has his or her own unique representation of the world. Two people can go through the same experience but have two completely different representations of what actually happened. You do not have to like or agree with any behaviour, just respect that it is a person’s representation of the world. This is where you will find freedom.
Rule 2: Practise non-judgment of others
Practise being non-judgmental in terms of not being critical or pass-remarkable and, more importantly, not sharing your criticisms with others.
The people we are most judgmental of are those closest to us. The first person is ourselves. Next on the list are those whom we love most. We judge them because we want them to be their best. We can also judge them because we have a need to control, but, whatever it is, don’t beat yourself up about it. Just start to practise being non-judgmental in all areas.
Rule 3: Change your perception of your reality instead of trying to change the circumstances
I often see unhappy people who
believe that if only people or situations around them would change, they would be happy. People do not want to change their behaviours to make you happy; they are too busy trying to make themselves happy. The best way to be happy is to change how you see your reality.
Rule 4: Understand that there is a positiveintentionbehindallbehaviour
Everyone’s behaviour is driven by our subconscious mind in a bid to make us happy – it has a positive intention. Past experiences will again be responsible for the sometimes difficult and destructive behaviour that people engage in. Accepting this means it is much easier not to get caught up in the drama, the story and the negativity.
Rule 5: Acknowledge that every resource you need to create change is already in you When you look around and notice the challenges and goals people have overcome and achieved in the history of the world, it is nothing short of incredible.
To overcome challenges and achievegoalsweneedasetofresources, and we were all born with these resources. Sometimes it is easier to blame others for our situation rather than empower ourselves and make an effort. You have a choice, and now that you are informed you have a responsibility to yourself to create the good life you deserve.
