10 Rules of Success in Life 2


Start from here
#6 Know that you can
The only thing you can’t do is what you don’t want to do’ – Able Lincoln. Nothing is won forever in human affairs, but everything is always possible - François Mitterrand. In life, we win some and lose some, however, you can’t rule out the possibility of anything. The deal is ‘Never say Never’. The last trial might be the best. The last hit might be the one to launch you to limelight. Those that fear failure actually fail. You increase your chances of failing when you think so. Believe in yourself, try something new, always try again, and fight so hard. You don’t fail when you try; you only fail when you don’t try. After a trial, two things are possible, its either you fail or you succeed at it. If you don’t try, only one thing is possible, you can’t succeed at it.

#7 Provide value
You are useless wherever you provided no value’ – Able Lincoln. People are placed on value scale by how much they can offer. Have you asked yourself if they would miss you where you are today should you leave. The business you are running, what particular problem are you solving. What method have you devised that can be followed to end a societal malady. ‘All knowledge is of itself of some value. There is nothing so minute or inconsiderable, that I would not rather know it than not’ - Samuel Johnson.

Don’t ever say or think all world problems have been solved. People are looking for ways to do difficult things simply. We need strategies or modifications to the airplane on how to eradicate plane crash. How do we build the next car that it won’t stumble and kill the next victim? How do we modify the network so it can access the rural areas at cheaper rates? Therefore, there is a lot you can offer the world, create a value and let the world pay you for it.

#8 Live life without fear
Courage is realizing you're afraid and still acting’ - Rudolph Giuliani. Nobody is leaving this earth alive; so why the fear. Most times, we regret the things we refused to do thinking we would fail in them. How do you know you will fail when you have not tried? The more you know that a business can succeed and can also crash, the better for you.

It is the small doubts of timid souls that accomplish their ruin. It is the narrow vision, the fear and trembling hesitation, that constitute defeat’ - Alice Foote MacDougall. Actually, the chances that you will fail that thing you feared are higher than you will succeed in it. Fear is a barrier, it is a limitation, it makes you stupid, timid and unachieving, it determines what you can do and can achieve. If you don’t break beyond your fears, you will never break through. ‘Though rapture brings us delight, the weakness of our nature at first makes us afraid of it, and we need to be resolute and courageous in life’ - Saint Teresa of Ávila

#9 Express positive energy
According to the Chinese emperor Huangdi, ‘When the minds of the people are closed and wisdom is locked out, they remain tied to disease. Yet their feelings and desires should be investigated and made known, their wishes and ideas should be followed; and then it becomes apparent that those who have attained spirit and energy are flourishing and prosperous, while those perish who lose their spirit and energy’. To whatever you do, always remain optimistic about it. Of course anything can happen; though the worst can happen, the best should be expected. How long would you live that you are full of negative energy. 

A company's ethical conduct is something like a big flywheel. It might have a lot of momentum, but it will eventually slow down and stop unless you add energy’ - William Adams. Never relent on your effort to get to the end and climax of anything. The results would always pay off if not all the time, but most of the time.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing that couldn't be done and he did it’ - Edgar A. Guest

#10 Have fun
And finally, you must enjoy the work of your labor the best way you can before you leave it for those that were not there when you acquired it. ‘Those who have looked deeply into human nature have recognized that our capacity for play is an expression of the highest seriousness’ - Hans-Georg Gadamer. All work and no play make Jack a dull boy. Life has no duplicate, no one leaves the earth alive, therefore, catch the fun you can with respect to work. You work and you catch fun. It makes one happy and fulfilled. 

Don’t catch the fun that will outstretch your work, just do the one that will unwind your boring life and make others around you happy. Let people know what you can offer aside knowledge and money; sarcasm, humor. Take your wife out to somewhere cool and have a nice time, go out with your kids, let them feel happy seeing their dad and mum around them, let them climb you and know the value of what they have. All these even tend to make you live long.

In conclusion, always believe anything can happen. However, whatsoever that happens, it is for good.
Nothing bad is going to happen to us. If we get fired, it's not a failure; it's midlife vocational reassessment’ - P. J. O'Rourke
