The below text is an excerpt from Cherie Carter-Scott’s book, “Nine Rules of Being Human.”
1. You will receive a body. Maybe you don’t like it, or you hate it, but it’s yours to keep it for the whole period of your life.
2. You will have lessons. You are registered in a mandatory and full-time study university called “life.”
3. There aren’t mistakes, only lessons. The personal grow up is the progress of tryouts, mistakes, and experiments. The “failed” experiments are a part of the progress as the experiments which “succeeded” are.
4. Lessons are repeated until you have learned them. A lesson will be presented to you in different forms until you have learned them. When you have learned them, you can move to the next one.
5. Learning never ends. There isn’t any time in your life which doesn’t include lessons. If you are alive, it means that there are still lessons.
6. “There” isn’t a better place than “here.” When the “there” have become “here,” you will just obtain another “there” which will seem better than the “here.”
7. Other people are just mirrors of you. You can’t love or hate something about another person except if they reflect something that you love or hate about yourself.
8. What you will do with your life depends on you. You have all the tools and the resources that you need. What you are going to do with them. The choice is yours.
9. Answers are inside you. The replies to the questions of life are inside you. The only thing you have to do is to observe, to listen and to trust.
