7 Lessons From The Rules of Life by Richard Templar

1. Be Your Own Adviser
Deep down within all of us is a fount of wisdom. This is called intuition. Listening to your intuition is a slow-learned process.

2. Never Lend Money Unless You Are Prepared To Write It Off.
If you lend money or anything else, don't do it unless you are prepared for it to be lost, forgotten, not returned.
If you are previous about it, then don't lend it in the first place.
If it means a lot to you, keep it safe. If you do lend anything including money, then don't expect to get it back if you value the friendship or relationship. But if you do get it back then that's a bonus.

3. Be Flexible in Your Thinking
Once your thinking gets crystallized, rigid, and formed, you’ve lost the battle. Once you think you have all the answers, you might as well hang up your boots. Once you get set in your ways, you’re already part of history.

4. Accept Yourself
You can’t go back and change anything, so you’ve got to work with what you’ve got. Accepting is easy because it is exactly what it says—accepting. You don’t have to improve or change or strive for perfection. Quite the opposite. And Just accept.
That means accepting all the warts and emotional lumps and bumps, the bad parts, the weaknesses, and the rest of it. This doesn’t mean we are happy with everything about ourselves, or that we are going to be lazy and lead a bad life. We are going to accept the way we are, initially, and then build on that. What we are not going to do is beat ourselves up because we don’t like some parts.

5. You Will Get Older But Not Necessarily Wiser.
There is a saying that as we get older we will get wiser; not true. But we can carry on being just as foolish, still making plenty of mistakes. It’s just that we make new ones, different ones. We do learn from experience and may not make the same mistakes again, but there is a whole new pickle jar of fresh ones just lying in wait for us to trip up and fall into. The secret is to accept this and not to beat yourself up when you do make new ones. The Rule really is: Be kind to yourself when you do muck things up. Be forgiving, and accept that it’s all part of that growing older but no wiser routine.

6. Know What Counts and What Doesn’t.
Being here counts. Being kind and considerate counts. Getting through each day without seriously offending anyone or hurting anyone counts. Having the latest technology doesn’t. Doing something useful with your life counts. There are some things in this life that are important and a whole lot of things that aren’t.

7. Don’t Expect to Be Perfect
You’re allowed to be human, you know. In fact, you’re actively encouraged to be human. Don’t try to set yourself above everyone else—the rest of us fail from time to time.
10 Dark Truths that will Make You Stronger.

1. Nobody cares about you, your plans, your goals, or your little dramas. So, stop pretending they do, or getting upset when they don't. Do the good things you have to do for your benefits.

2. When it comes to reaching your goals, discipline is more important than motivation. If you don't have discipline, you will never be committed to anything.

3. You are the only person capable of changing your life; no one can do that for you and no amount of excuses can do it for you. The easiest way to change yourself is to change the things you do each day.

4. The biggest threat to your progression in life isn't something or someone around you. It is you.

5. The key to a successful life lies not in what you know, but in what you do with what you know.

6. Failure is just a steppingstone on the road to success.

7. You can't change the past, but you can still d£stroy your future if you repeat the mistakes.

8. Success is not about what you accomplish, it's about who you become in the process.

9. Your comfort zone is a barren place. Nothing ever grows there.

10. Anything in life worth achieving will not be easy to get. Stop believing otherwise. If it was easy, everyone would get what they wanted. Most people give up on their goals when things become too difficult. Don’t be like them.
As your mom, I will always take the picture.

My phone is filled with thousands of images of your sweet face, millions of pixels that when pieced together, capture the most mundane and marvelous parts of watching you grow up.

I will neeeeeeever not jump at the chance to hold onto them, just for a little bit longer.

Because someday,

They will be all I have of you, right at this very moment.

Right at this very age, right at this exact stage.

Snapshots and memories of the little person you are now.

And truly, I can’t wait to see who are you next.

I’m so excited to meet each person you become as you grow, and love them just as fiercely, with my whole heart.

But there’s so much sadness in the inevitable truth—

That in order to say hello,

I’ll have to say goodbye first.

To each and every version of you that came before.

The tiny infant, the gangly toddler, the curious preschooler, the big little kid, and every “you” you’ll ever be after that.

So here I am, caught saying hello and goodbye to you, over and over again, for the rest of my life.

And all I have to remember from between each one . . . is the picture.

That’s why

I will ?????? take the picture.q
Timaya said “ Music in our days wasn’t even like this . You did not have to wait for a record label to sign you before you start working . There were no sponsors but for the love of music we kept going . What am i saying ? Young talents don’t have to wait for a label to come to them . Keep working , if you dream big , you won’t submit to just any kind of label . Every label owner wants to make profits and they will use you in a way that you might not even be comfortable with it . You might cry and no one hears you, you might even lose everything. Just like business people start small and grow big, you can start small and grow too . “ ?

This is more than truth , many young talents are not even concerned about succeeding anymore . They just believe if this or that label signs them they’ll grow . Have you ever asked yourself what the label stands to get from you ? Do you think someone will put in so much money and might not make life uncomfortable for you ?

Truth is young kings and queens can make it , start small and keep going . If you are talented , study music business , invest the little you got and stay consistent .

I can't count the number of messages in my inbox begging me to link them up to Don Jazzy or Olamide. Whenever I see those messages, I do laugh. You are looking for Olamide to sponsor your music career but you don't have a single song you have recorded by yourself. You don't even have a Facebook business page. You are still using your normal Facebook profile. How can someone believe you are serious?

You claim you don't have money to record a song but the truth of the matter is that no one can give you money to record a song. Go and get a pidgin hole save and start dropping at least #500 inside the save everyday. Within 5 months, you can realize money to record your song in a nearby studio. When the song is ready, it can only cost you #5,000 to place your song in online streaming platforms. Then start promoting your song and make sure yourw

3 Things you should never share with someone no matter how familiar you are with them.

It is beneficial to share things with other people because love is demonstrated via sharing; nevertheless, there are some things that should not be shared with anyone. Following your review of this post, the following is a list of seven items that you will decide not to share.

1. Toothbrush: When someone wants to clean their teeth, they should use a toothbrush. microbes and other types of microbes can be found on toothbrushes after they have been used. It is also feasible for it to transfer HIV if its bristles penetrate an infected person, as this would expose the individual to the virus. As a direct consequence of this, you should stop passing your toothbrush around to other people.

2. Nail Clippers: Although it might not seem dangerous to share nail clippers, doing so can actually spread a number of different diseases, including fungal infections (such as athlete’s foot, which is a common fungal infection that typically affects the area between the toes and causes redness, cracking, and itching), bacterial infections, and parasitic infections (such as paronychia, which is an infection of the nail fold, which is the area where the nail meets the skin).

3. Earphones: When you share earphones, you not only introduce new bacteria but also double the number of microbial plants that are already present in your ears. In most people, the presence of these microorganisms does not cause any problems; nevertheless, an ear infection can occur if the number of germs in the body rises above a certain threshold or if a new microorganism is introduced.

I have high hopes that you will take away some useful information from this essay.
Thank you very much for reading.
