Rule 1 : Life is not fair - get used to it! • Rule 2 : The world doesn't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself. • Rule 3 : You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both. • Rule 4 : If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss
Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity. • Rule 6 : If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault , so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them. • Rule 7 : Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.
Rule 8 : Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life. • Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time. • Rule 10 : Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
PRINCIPLES OF LIFE • No point using limited life to chase unlimited money. • No point earning so much money you cannot live to spend it . • Money is not yours until you spend it. • When you are young, you use your health to chase your wealth ; when you are old, you use your wealth to buy back your health. Difference is that, it is too late. • How happy a man is, is not how much he has but how little he needs . • No point working so hard to provide for the people you have no time to spend with .
Learn from the mistakes of others.Trust me... you can't live long enough to make them all yourself.
