Dalai Lama 18 Rules Living

The Dalai Lama is a reference for many of us. His philosophies are evocative of shared peace and exchange. Share without moderation!

1. Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

Risk is involved in every major occasion in life. If there were no risk, then everyone would, making the "ordinary" people, not "great". Stand out from the other as the one who can not only take risks but who enjoys to do so.

2. When you fail, do not fail the lesson.

If you forget what you have learned not to do, you will be doomed to repeat your actions. More importantly, do not fear failure. Because failure is the precursor to success. Nothing great is accomplished without failure.

The purpose of life is not that we are perfect, but that we become the best version of ourselves. It is more important to be authentic infallible, and we win to listen to our instincts. The only real errors are those that we commit to rehearsal. Others are learning opportunities.

3. Follow the three R:

self-respect - Trust is the key to success and if a person does not comply, you can not believe in it. So if you do not respect you, you can not achieve great things since you can not respect others.

Respect for others - and you will be respected in return. If you do not return the respect of others, some will assume they are not worth the trouble of being respected, and thus they do not comply.

Responsibility for all your actions - You are solely responsible for your feelings, your actions, your success, etc. You control completely your life, do not try to blame others for his mistakes and misfortunes.

4. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

Trying to get everything you want will not necessarily be good for you in the long run. If something seems never work, as if fate intervened, remember to let go and return to it later. The universe works in mysterious ways and must be trustworthy.

5. Learn the rules for how to break them properly.

Rules are made to be broken. Most of them are set up by the former corrupt institutions that seek only to enslave and maintain their own power. When it comes to break the rules, do it properly to avoid repression. But above all things, make sure you do it within the rules. If the authority was never questioned, we would stagnante.7 civilization

6. Do not let a little dispute break up a great friendship.

Obviously, friendship is more important than a little dispute, but very few people put this rule into practice. You must also be able to follow rule # 7 in order to follow rule # 6.

7. When you realize you made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

And do not let your pride to obstruct these measures. Forgive yourself and take on full responsibility. This will speak volumes about you. It's not the number of failures that determine our ultimate success, but our ability to extract wisdom and then move on with new energy
Mistakes are neutral; we can do what we want. According to the way we perceive them, they overwhelm us or guide us to success.

8. Spend some time alone every day.

No matter what you do, spend at least 30 minutes of your day alone in a quiet place. This will give you at least half an hour to watch what happens in your life, to become aware of who you are and understand what you want. Whether through prayer, meditation, yoga or golf, this ritual is a "must".

9. Open your arms to change, but do not let go of your values.

The world is constantly changing. If you are not open to change, then you will be unhappy. You will yourself to change, but this does not mean that your values must change too. Welcome new places, new faces and new loves, but never change these important parts of yourself, unless you have good reason to believe that you were wrong to believe.

10. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Silence leads to relaxed contemplation in which emotions have less influence and where logic can take over. For example, if you argue with a friend, silence instead of fighting back, taking you is more efficient and will end the fight much faster.

11. Live your life with honor.

Therefore, when you get older and you look back, you will be able to enjoy it a second time. You'll have to live with your actions for the rest of your life, so to save you the anguish and regret, live your life with honor from now. Good things come and good people too. You will never be punished for acting with integrity.

12. A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation of your life.

This is the rule where you have the least control. As in rule # 3, if you respect (like) your family, they will respect you and will love you in return. Bring love into your home. Brighten the walls with tenderness. This will establish a solid foundation in the lives of your children.

13. When you disagree with loved ones, focus only on the present.

Do not bring up the past. The past is constant, unchanging. Wake up the past can only bring more pain to the situation. Forgive past actions and focus on the present.

14. Share your knowledge.

We learn so much in a lifetime. Share your knowledge with the people you meet, it can only help. More importantly, sharing your failures and your experiences so others do not reproduce the same mistakes.

15. Be gentle with the earth.

The earth is where we live. So this should be obvious. Hurt the earth is hurting himself, the future of your children and your loved ones.

16. Once a year, as often as possible, go someplace you've never been before.

Discover new places and new things. You could end up with someone somewhere makes you happier. The Earth is so vast with unique and beautiful places, why not go explore a bit?

17. Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your needs.

The reverse may be an indication that your relationship must end. If you need someone more than you love, it is a sign of dependence, not affection. Find someone where love is the dominant force and in which the relationship is much more fulfilling.

18. Judge your success by what you had to give up to get there.

Decide what you want. Design your ideal life and go for it. Do not let any part of this dream to escape, so you will never live in regret. Everything is good, because everything is useful - to the extent that you know understand the learning opportunities available to you.

If you perceive the difficult experiences as bad omens, they will have a negative impact. If you see them as opportunities to grow, you will transcend.
