Instructions For Life; Dalai Lama.

I keep these instructions in mind just about everyday. I read these a few years ago and I created my own. It's good to have rules or small promises that you keep to yourself to stay grounded. I've always felt the best way to live your life is by following what you believe in. Mine are in red.

1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
2. When you lose, don't lose the lesson.
3. Follow the three Rs: Respect for self, Respect for others and Responsibility for all your actions.
4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
5.Never let any outside force influence your mind.
6. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
7. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
8. Spend some time alone every day.
9. Thrive within your own passions.
10. Obey your own rules and disobey their limits.
11. Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll be able to enjoy it a second time.
12. Learn the absolute meaning of the word "become".
13. Share your knowledge. It's a way to achieve immortality.
