Life is simple. We complicate it.
One of our readers sent me this awesome Three Simple Rules in Life, they hold so much value and are so true in everyday life.
Let us all live by these three simple rules of life
Rule #1 – If You Do Not Go After What You Want, You’ll Never Have It
– Life is not easy, you’ll not get what you want just by think about it. You’ll need to work hard to get what you want, you’ll need to put in a lot of action to be what you want to be. There are no short cuts to success. Take massive action to make it happen.
Rule #2 – If You Don’t Ask, The Answer Will Always Be No
– My ex boss once told me – “Ask and you shall receive”. Don’t let the fear of negativity or rejection stop you. A lot of times we miss out on good things by not asking or not communicating about it. There is always a high chance that you might get a “Yes” for what you want.
I happen to see one of Steve Jobs interviews recently and he said, most people never get what they want because they never ask.
He cites his own example…when he was 12 and in high school, he called up Bill Hewlett (co-founder of Hewlett-Packard Company) and asked him if he had any spare parts to build frequency counters. Bill not only gave him the parts but also gave him a summer job on the assemble line working on frequency counters.
Rule #3 – If You Do Not Step Forward, You’ll Always Be In The Same Place
– You can’t be living life and waiting for things to happen. You need to make things happen. You need to be prepared to fail and burn out. You need to be tough, when the going gets tough. You’re success depends on your ability to take risks and failures.
Do you live life by these rules ? Try working with these rules this week and I am sure you’ll be in a better position to take challenges and over come them.
Have a Super Sunday and a Great Week Ahead
