- YOU WILL RECEIVE A BODY
You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period you're around.
- YOU WILL LEARN LESSONS
You are enrolled in a
full-time informal school called life. Each day in this school
you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may
like the lessons or think them irrelevant and stupid.
- THERE ARE NO MISTAKES, ONLY LESSONS
Growth is a process of trial and error, experimentation. The "Failed"
experiments are as much a part of the process as the
experiment that ultimately "works".
- A LESSON IS REPEATED UNTIL LEARNED
A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have
learned it. When you have learned it, you can then go on
to the next lesson.
- LEARNING LESSONS DOES NOT END
There is no part of life that does not contain its lessons. If you are
alive, there are lessons to be learned.
- "THERE" IS NO BETTER THAN "HERE"
When your "There" has become a "Here", you will simply
obtain another "There" that will, again, look better than "Here".
- OTHERS ARE MERELY MIRRORS OF YOU
You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it
reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.
- WHAT YOU MAKE OF YOUR LIFE IS UP TO YOU
You have all the tools and resources you need. What
you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.
- YOUR ANSWERS LIE INSIDE YOU
The answers to life's questions lie inside you. All you need to do is look,
listen and trust.
- YOU WILL FORGET ALL THIS
Unless you consistently stay focused on the goals you have set for yourself,
everything you've just read won't mean a thing.
