If there was one person in this lifetime with whom I could sit down and talk to for even just an hour it would be the Dalai Lama – long considered one of the most influential people in the world. I constantly strive to the best of my ability to follow his teachings. They have had and continue to have an incredible impact on my life and my work – as a source of inspiration, guidance and motivation.
At the turn of this century, the Dalai Lama issued “18 Rules for Living’. As I share them with you here today I hope that they will inspire you as much as they have me – to stretch yourself, to go within, to strive for more, to be more, to grow more – and as a result always be living into your greatest potential and purpose in life. Basically, these will help you to really get your shit together.
20 ‘Rules‘ We Should Learn From The Dalai Lama That Will Help Us Get Our Sh*t Together:
RULE 1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
RULE 2. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
RULE 3. Follow the three Rs: Respect for self, Respect for others, Responsibility for all your actions
RULE 4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.
RULE 5. Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.
RULE 6. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
