Today I wish to begin this series on Rules of the Game by getting you to believe in a different way about your life. I’m not promising that you’ll have some sort of life-altering surprise,but if you can stick with me through this and future articles,you’ll benefit from what you learn. After all,you can’t flex the rules to your benefit until you know what they are!
What is a guideline?
Before we start,let me cover a few fundamental ideas and principles.
What is a guideline? Well,a guideline is essentially a broad category of beliefs that specify how someone believes the world runs. The keyword here is “believes.”
The majority of the time,individuals are running on rules that they set on their own without even realising it.
Rules You Believe Exist
What are some rules you might unconsciously follow? Well,in my line of work and individuals I’ve interacted with,I have actually found these to be incredibly typical:
Â· You require to work more to make more money.
Â· If you are a difficult worker,your work will be rewarded.
Â· You need to go to school to get a great task.
Â· The government will care for you in retirement.
Would like to know a common thing among all of these rules? They don’t exist! In reality,more times than not,these rules are broken. You think that they are tried and true,but people will screw you over,you will not get what you desire,and you’ll just assume it’s due to the fact that they are dreadful people.
In truth,you’re the just one imagining them,and everybody else is doing just great without them.
The Flip Side
If these imaginary guidelines don’t exist and everybody doesn’t follow them,what’s stopping you from following your own set of rules? Actually,guidelines are essential; it’s just crucial you’re following the right set of rules.
Guidelines ought to be empowering,they ought to set a standard of conduct for you to follow,they must have a cause-and-effect relationship with your results,and they must set your protocols and treatments.
