Rules of life...

I have taken these to be some of the rules I will abide by in my life.  
Do you have any "rules" that you live by?


  1. Treat others the way you would like to be treated.
  2. Judge your success by what you had to give in order to get it.
  3. Don’t believe everything you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.
  4. When you say, “I love you,” mean it.
  5. When you say, “I’m sorry,” look the person in the eye.
  6. You can't shake hands with a clenched fist.
  7. Never laugh at anyone’s dreams.
  8. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it’s the only way to live life completely.
  9. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.
  10. Don’t judge people by their relatives.
  11. Talk slow but think quick.
  12. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
  13. Call your mom.
  14. Say “bless you” when you hear someone sneeze.
  15. When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
  16. Remember the three R’s: Respect for self; Respect for others; Responsibility for all your actions.
  17. Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
  18. When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
  19. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.
  20. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, conversational skills will be very important.
  21. Spend some time alone.
  22. Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.
  23. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.
  24. Read more books and watch less TV.
  25. Trust in God but lock your car.
  26. A loving atmosphere in your home is so important. Do all you can to create a tranquil harmonious home.
  27. In disagreements with loved ones, deal with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.
  28. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a stroke of luck.
  29. Mind your own business.
  30. Pray without ceasing

  1. You've listed some of the pillars that I live by as well;mainly no comparing what I have to others, and minding my own business. I also try not to offer unsolicited advice as I don't care for that at all.
