Probably I will add more golden rules as I grow and experience in life. For now, I have a few golden rules I would love to share.
Since my 21 years of existence I learned that you always have to do what you really want at all times. We, as a society tend to forget that we are unique individuals and we do not need each other to experience that we are special in our own ways.
Furthermore, I dare say that a lot of people think that is easy to live a comfortable life full of norms and behaviors that someone established for us, for good of the community. We copy what we see, we buy what others have or wear, we go party and drink cause everyone else does. What is that you want really want? Ask yourself and start doing it.
I learned that when you start doing what you really have in mind, you feel different. At first it is strange and scary. Everyone else looks at you differently. Some people will admire you; others will never understand.
The vast majority of people get a job, get married, have children and stop taking care of themselves. They stop doing what they like, they quit pursuing their dreams, they drop their hobbies and passions. This people decide to stop growing, stop stretching, stop working on themselves. Finally, they die.
However, I believe that the main reason these people quit, is because of fear. Fear of being different, fear of failing and changing. This people are not risk takers.
My point is, if you have a dream or a goal, go for it. It doesn’t matter what others think or say. Fear is not an option for success. Start by spending time with yourself to know who you are and what you want. Second, get rid of anything useless and get the losers out of your life. Third, once you know what you want, wake up every morning looking forward to fuel your dream.
People that start doing what they want, they become who they were created to be. Although, they get separated from others, they also become unique. You will see that some people won’t understand, as I said before, but you will also find people who are living their dreams. Those are the kind of people you need to join. People with hope and hunger for a cause greater than themselves. However, life will disappoint you many times, but you need to know that you can do it even If no one else sees it. The most importance golden rule of mine is to invest time in yourself. You can live the life you want. You can live your dream.
