5 Rules For 2016

2016-01-01 09:25

1. Make peace with your past.

It's a new year with new possibilities. It's a year where you can grow new ideas and develop more ambition. It's a new start. Make peace with your past so that it won't disturb your present or future.

2. What other think of you is none of your business

I've learnt that you can't please everyone, people will want you to swim, not to swim, to float and to drown. You have to just concentrate on you. Concentrate on your goals and dreams, make sure that you stay focused on you. Obviously be a good person while you doing that.

3. Time heals everything

This isn't an Adele song. Time does heal, whether it's a failed business opportunity or a long relationship that has just met its end, everything gets better with time and hard work. If 2015 was filled with disappointments for you make sure that you learnt all the necessary lessons so that you can have a home run of a 2016!

4. No one is in charge of your happiness. Except you!

You decide your happiness. Make yourself happy. Make sure your happiness is in your hands and not the hands of people who could enter and leave your life easily. Do what makes you happy, be passionate and smile more. Spend time with people you care about and be around people who compliment you and build you up not the people that bring you down.

5. Don't compare your life to others and don't judge them.

A really good friend of mine once said : "Run your own race." We spend so much of time comparing the lives of people around us that we never find happiness in our achievements and victories. We also spend large amounts of time down playing people who haven't achieved as much as we have. That needs to change. We should support each other and help each other. There is enough successes in the world for all of us. Run your own race!
