21 Cardinal Rules of Life

hi all,

I have always found myself pondering on the things that any person should do or accomplish to make our lives "livable".. !! Most of us, or more often, all of us, fail to do one or more of these important things which ends up in making a portion of their lives miserable. And what most people overlook is the fact that we might regret for not having done something much more and deeper that for things that we did. The following are a list of 21 things that we must accomplish or adhere to, in order to keep things squared and even. In my following blogs, I will discuss in detail some of the points below that might need more elucidation.

1. Marry the right person . This one decision will determine 90% of your happiness or misery.
2. Work at something you enjoy and that's worthy of your time and talent.
3. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
4. Be forgiving of yourself and others.
5. Discipline yourself to save m0ney on even the most modest salary.
6. Understand that happiness is not based on possessions, power or prestige, but on relationship with people you love and respect.
7. Be generous.
8. Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.
9. Have a grateful heart.
10. Persistence, persistence, persistence.
11. Treat everyone you meet like you want to be treated.
12. Commit yourself to constant improvement.
13. Commit yourself to quality.
14. Be loyal.
15. Be honest.
16. Be a self-starter.
17. Be decisive even it it means you'll sometimes be wrong.
18. Stop blaming others. Take responsibility for every area of your life.
19. Don't do anything that wouldn't make your Mom proud.
20. Take good care of those you love.
21. Be bold and courageous. When you look back on your life, you'll regret the things you didn't do more than the ones you did.
