What rule do we have
to be happy? What has to happen for us to feel successful? Is it in
our control? If it isn’t then we might be setting ourselves up for
failure. By rules I mean the set of circumstances that must be present
for us to feel accomplished. For example if I have a rule that says
something has to happen to feel successful, what if I don’t ever reach
it? Or even worse, does it mean that I never get to feel successful
until I reach it? That is a sad way to live. We have to create rules
that serve us. We have to live by rules that are within our control.
Here are some of my rules: I am successful when I grow and improve. I
am successful when I give my very best.
