Recently, wherever you spit, the "Rules of life of this or that" appear everywhere. So that some would-be clerk does not have time to defile me with his "talents", I will work ahead of the curve today and write my own rules of life myself.
A copywriter on an entertainment site is a diagnosis, practically. Each of them thinks of himself as a great writer in the future, knows all the commas, but so far writes at three kopecks per thousand characters. He has no prospects, but ambitions are abundant. And all would be fine if they did not utter platitudes with an important air.
Recently, wherever you spit, the "Rules of life of this or that" appear everywhere. As a rule, a well-known person has not the slightest relation to these pseudo-literary vyseurs, and there are more than enough clichés and platitudes in the text. Brush your teeth, poop on time, then happiness will surely overtake you and hit you in the crown.
All this is sad. Mark Twain would roll over in his coffin, if he happened to read what rules were attributed to him.
So that some would-be clerk does not have time to defile me with his "talents", I will work ahead of the curve today and write my own rules of life myself. Maybe they are not know-how, but they work for me. Fig knows, but maybe they will be useful to you too. They drove.
1. Don't let society influence you
Remember, 99% of people exist only to seethe with a variety of genes. How does nature look like this combination of chromosomes will work? And how - like this? What will the mixing of this and that property lead to? What can come out if dad is blond and mom is bow-legged?
Typically, these experiments result in failure. But natural selection does not give up and continues to shake the shaker to suddenly find a diamond or an emerald in the ocean of shit. Einstein, for example.
Now think about how much the opinion of the gray mass, unsuccessful combinations of genes, which nature wasted, is really worth?
That's just it, that three kopecks on a market day.
2. Be strong
You have two ways to live your life. The first is a gray insignificance, the second is to realize all your potential.
You can hide under a blanket, not stand out, be a gray mouse. But how much is such a life worth? Three unfriendly, three unfriendly, and you are a man in a case.
Remember, as soon as you clearly and distinctly voice your opinion, you will be attacked. Do not be afraid of enemies, because according to the law of conservation, the more ill-wishers you have, the more those to whom you are sincerely sympathetic.
How many people will you find who love and respect you? And those who hate epigastric colic? One? Two? Three? Now look how much he doesn’t love me. What am I? Look at Putin.
Have you looked? You are not Putin or even me. Nobody gets stormy from the mention of your name. Why? The reason is simple: the wider the range of opinions about you, the stronger and deeper your personality is.
What to do with this is up to you. As well as to decide: are you a trembling creature or do you have the right?
3. Value freedom
The main thing in your life is freedom. If you force yourself to do what the other person wants and expects, you flush your life down the toilet at that moment.
This applies to parents, relationship partners, children, and friends. By allowing themselves to be chained, each of them will use you for their own purposes. You, like a puppet in the hands of a puppeteer, will live your life satisfying someone's desires.
4. Remember that no one loves you enough to sacrifice themselves
Don't expect anything good from anyone. Count only on yourself, then there will be no disappointment in people.
5. Don't let fear rule you
Wasting your life to keep yourself safe is stupid. A lot of effort will not lead to anything: friends, for whose sake you infringed upon yourself, will merge, children will grow up and leave, partners, while you diligently do something for their sake, cheat on you with another person.
You cannot be afraid of old age or betrayal. This is a life that you, with all your desire, are not able to manage. It is impossible to protect yourself from everything, so it is not worth spending precious time to protect yourself from a small percentage of dangers.
If you knew where you would fall, you would spread straws. Accept the fact that you will fall where you never knew it.
6. Every person should have a purpose
You can't live a meaningless amoeba. This is not life, but an existence that suits a cat or a dog, but certainly not a person. The most bitter question that people ask themselves before death is why a person has lived.
Make it so that you have something to answer for yourself.
Life in bliss is beautiful in the moment, but degrades from it. Without burdening yourself, in a few years you will turn into an animal. Read, think, solve difficult problems for yourself - the more you load your head, the better it works, which means that life becomes fuller and brighter through its perception.
The same goes for your body. Physical weakness means spiritual weakness, mental inferiority. If you do not move, then you become dumb.
8. Be fickle
Look for new interests. Travel, meet new people. The taste for life, its fullness is directly related to the flow of new information into the brain. Strive to acquire new experiences, do not dwell on one topic. Then it will be "tasty" for you to live, and you yourself will be interesting to others.
Change realities: places, people, circle of your interests.
9. Learn to be content with little
Find pleasure in simple things, and happiness in small joys. You still can't win a million in the lottery, don't waste your imagination on "if only …" Live what has already been given to you, so as not to miss the moment and with it the whole life that consists of them.
10. Observe the regime
A tight schedule will keep you from going nowhere all day. Deeds, of course, are important, but time for yourself, your pleasures is necessary. Workaholics are no less unhappy than those who spend time in idleness are miserable.
Maintain a balance of useful and pleasant, and there is no better way than a regime for this.
