Three Life Rules

I’ve stumbled across these three simple rules a few times over the years. They’re the kind of guidelines that you instantly say, yes, of course. However, they’re not so easy to put into practice.

Here they are.

1) If you don’t go after what you want, you won’t get it.

We assume that what we want will fall into place. It might, but the worthwhile things take lots of work, usually very hard work.

2) If you don’t ask, the answer will always be no.

Ask for it. It’s the number one rule in sales – it works everywhere else too!

3) If you don’t step forward, you’ll always be in the same place.

If we wait until we have all the answers we’ll never get anything done. We have to start. When we do, amazing things happen.

Certainly not an exhaustive list, but the results are profound when we practice them – even with baby steps. It’s this type of action that makes me feel alive an in tune with God.

What do you think?
