Life Strategies

I just finished reading this book which I bought weeks ago. I got wonderful insights about life strategies and found great advice from successful people who themselves have experienced many failures but made it still to success despite the hardships. There are just so many issues that we have to deal with as we go through life every single day. There is the issue of financial contentment with what we currently earn and not being able to make more money. We sometimes feel frustrated because we don't get what we want. It seems like we are just going through the motions of our lives with no passion, no plan, and no goal. Or simply bored with ourselves? Some are silently enduring an emotionally barren life or marriage. Others are living a lonely existence with little hope for change. If you experience some of these, I want to share some strategies. Who knows it might work for you.

1. You either get it, or you don't.
Strategy: Become one of those who gets it.
2. You create your own experience.
Strategy: Acknowledge and accept accountability for your life.
3. People do what works.
Strategy: Identify the payoffs that drive your behavior and that of others.
4. You cannot change what you do not acknowledge.
Strategy: Get real with yourself about your life and everybody on it.
5. Life rewards action.
Strategy: Make careful decisions and then pull the trigger.
6. There is no reality; only perception.
Strategy: Identify the filters through which you view the world.
7. Life is managed; it is not cured.
Strategy: Learn to take charge of your life.
8. We teach people how to treat us.
Strategy: Own, rather than complain, about how people treat you.
9. There is power in forgiveness.
Strategy: Open your eyes to what anger and resentment are doing for you.
10. You have to name it before you can claim it.
Strategy: Get clear about what you want and take your turn.
