7. Be a Giver
If you want to get love, give love Don’t expect anything in return – this will follow naturally. If you want to get value, give value. If you want to get trust, show trust and be trustworthy.
8. Be courageous
“As you grow older, you’ll find the only things you regret are the things you didn’t do” – Zachary Scott
“Just do it!” is Nike’s famous slogan Stop thinking and wondering and holding yourself back, just do it. Push yourself to do what you know is right, what you want and what benefits others and you. In other words replace fear with courage.
There is nothing sadder than missed opportunities. Take the initiative and create somthing which is important to you. That is seizing the day.
You can’t really lose by doing the right thing. The worst that can happen is a learning experience to do it even better the next time.
9. Never stop dreaming. (But live your dream now)
“Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today.” ~James Dean
Don’t let anyone tell you what you can do or can’t do A dream is an opportunity that has the potential to become true. So take your dream and plan ahead the best you can: use goals and build your personal vision. See it as clearly as possible now and take it seriously. And then live it now. Enjoy the process.
The whole dream is a process but you will live every step fully in the present. The goal is the journey. That is important and it brings both worlds together: the dream and the now.
10. Be your authentic self
Be yourself and enjoy yourself. What good is it to pretend when ultimately the whole journey is about being you? Live from the inside and then become able to give your unique gift to yourself and the world.
Be truthful and real to yourself and to others. Then you open the door to discover yourself and ultimately realize yourself as whole and part of the whole.
