10 Laws of Life
Rule 1: Never Stop Effort For A Beautiful Future
Formal education will make you a living;
self-education will make you a fortune. — Jim Rohn
beautiful future is always something people think about often.
The past has passed,
and even with failures,
it is still useful for us on the way to the future,
because it is full of experiences for us
to contemplate from a new perspective.
All these valuable experiences can become basic ingredients in building a good future.
Approaching the past with a receptive attitude will give you a thirst for new experiences;
Your enthusiasm will be ignited to resolve to do everything you desire.
The future is your own property,
because it is what has not happened yet,
but only exists in your thoughts.
That means it depends on your actions today.
And of course everyone wants to have a bright and successful future.
There, you will be developed more comprehensively than what you currently have:
greater ability and understanding,
greater community relations…
All of this could go on forever;
It is only limited by your imagination.
Believe in that.
Believe in a bright future
Life is a game. Money is how we score.— Ted Timer
To create a future that is more successful than the past,
you must first believe that it is possible,
whatever stage or situation you are in right now.
Faith has magical power,
it can take you where you want to go.
Dan Schmidt is a successful businessman,
he currently runs a series of quite successful companies.
Rich life, fame and power all have,
but he still does not want to stop there
but always directs himself to the further future.
Desperate to figure out what to do next,
Dan begins to notice things he’s never been interested in before.
Listening to a radio advertisement about funeral services,
he wondered who would end up in that urn?
In addition to the money
and material possessions that can be left to his family,
what else can he leave more meaningful
when he leaves this world?
Dan began to visualize what he needed to do in the future.
In addition to getting up early every day,
he also pays more attention to charity work.
Initially volunteering for the environment,
then solving and creating job opportunities for the unemployed.
He thinks it is these jobs that have created him an invaluable source of wealth.
Every action and result he achieves begins with a very simple thought:
“If everything I’ve done so far is just the beginning,
what should I do next”?
The question for the future guided him about what to do in the next period,
after what was achieved.
Today’s success is the beginning of tomorrow’s success,
and when you’re successful,
aim for something even better:
It is helping others succeed too.
You could say that Dan is a successful businessman
and he is used to constantly moving forward.
He had a lot of money
and resources to support,
so of course,
he had to envision his more successful future.
What if your life is not rich
and no one tells you that you can do better than what you are doing?
Or what if you still can’t get better no matter how hard you try?
Our answer is:
Under any circumstances,
look beyond the horizon to a completely new future,
and take action to make it a reality.
Courage to succeed
Do not go to work to work, go to work to prosper. — Grant Cardone
Hilda grew up in a very poor family,
the third of eight children.
Her family was so poor that her parents could not take care of their children’s education.
Hilda’s siblings had to leave school early,
doing whatever they could to support the family.
In the 1950s,
the prospect of a bright future for a 16-year-old girl
who hadn’t graduated from high school was unthinkable.
But Hilda studied very well and fortunately,
she was a brave girl.
She had a burning dream of becoming a teacher,
but of course,
to achieve this, she had to complete a university degree.
Her family situation did not allow her to continue her studies.
That turning point prompted Hilda to make a courageous decision:
to leave her family and live her own life with dreams.
At the age of sixteen,
she left her hometown to live at the Young Christian Sisters Association.
Due to her academic achievements,
she won several scholarships and completed high school,
and then university.
Finally, she fulfilled her childhood dream:
to become a teacher.
Hilda has been on the podium for more than 30 years now.
The world is full of stories about people like Hilda
who overcame their circumstances.
They were born and raised without any support or encouragement,
but in return,
they have a strong belief in a bright future.
Some of them are famous personalities like Oprah Winfrey ,
but most of them are ordinary people with little-known life stories.
However, they all have one thing in common:
at some point, they will decide for themselves a brighter and better future.
Small steps to help you grow
There are three steps to wealth:
First you have to make money,
then you have to keep it,
then you have to multiply it. — Grant Cardone
Intentions and beliefs and the future are always a good medicine for everyone,
but what if you are old
or in a medical condition that can’t do everything you want?
Could create a better future in that situation?
Do not be pessimistic or despair!
Even if you find that your life is only measured in months,
or even days,
keep striving for a better future.
The future is not only in the next year,
the next day,
but it is right after the present moment.
A more prosperous future can be just trying to learn something that
enhances your view of the world, it can also be simpler,
you use the short time you have left of your life to contribute something useful,
no matter how small, for everyone.
At the age of 98, the old Spaniard Antonio Pijuan is still elite.
He lives in the suburbs of Toronto.
As someone who has lived through the Spanish Civil War and two world wars,
Antonio still retains a fervent attitude towards life.
Once watching television,
people introduced the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto
– a place he had never been to before
even though it was not far from where he lived.
He immediately asked his niece Lisa to take him there.
He was amazed to see so many shoes on display in such a building.
At the end of the tour,
he said to his granddaughter:
“Thank you. Today he learned one more thing.”
Growth doesn’t have to be something big;
widening understanding of even the simple
and small things can be a goal in future orientation.
It also has nothing to do with the so-called “great leap”.
Because most development is the result of many small steps combined.
It is important that the steps are continuous.
Constantly striving for the future
All achievements, all earned riches,
have their beginning in an idea. — Napoleon Hill
Human life is sometimes shortened by reasons beyond our control.
However, a real future does not depend on how long you last in this world,
but on what you do during that time.
Let’s go back to Hilda’s case.
Hilda loves her teaching job.
She knows she is making a small contribution to the future of students.
She always feels that the success of the children
and the respect they have for her are the greatest rewards.
And she seems to have learned a lot from them,
just as they learned from her.
Once, during a trip to Thailand,
she got lost in a hill village.
She was later found sitting outside a hut surrounded by indigenous children.
They are showing her some Lahu words,
and she is teaching them some English words.
Occasionally, laughter broke out,
creating a very friendly atmosphere.
At the age of 59, Hilda was diagnosed with acute cancer
and had no chance of a cure.
When she learned the truth,
she had only a few short months left in her life.
Although she was in a crisis and was very distressed,
she was able to calm down
and determined to use the remaining time to devote herself meaningfully.
Most of us rarely talk about death
because we don’t dare to face it,
on the contrary,
Hilda dared to acknowledge it to live the remaining days
of her life meaningfully.
She became an example to many in facing death,
invigorating many with her optimism and courage.
She tried in every way to balance hope and truth,
soberly accepting the future as well as what might happen.
Five months after Hilda’s death,
the funeral home had to open another door for strange visitors.
More than 300 people came to pay their respects
and honor the impact her life had on them.
When she was strong and brave,
when she was close to death,
she was much more resilient.
She grasped every opportunity to live meaningfully in the last days of her life.
Hilda is an example of the effort to live,
the spirit of constantly rising in all circumstances.
Life, the future has meaning or not depends on the perspective of each of us.
Ask questions about the future
If you’re wondering what a better future is,
asking questions is a good place to start.
It might sound like Dan Schmidt’s question:
“If everything I’ve done so far is just the beginning,
what should I do next”?
Or it could simply be:
“If I were to sit here three years later
and look back on today,
what would have to have happened during those three years
to make me satisfied with my own progress?”
In this case,
asking the question would
help you establish a connection with your own brighter future.
Setting specific goals for yourself will take you away from the barriers of the past,
directing you to a brighter and more successful future.
If you’re having a hard time setting meaningful life goals,
it’s better to write down five to ten of your accomplishments in the past year
and from there,
keep thinking about your big goals more than you would like to achieve in each area.
Gradually, you will see clearly what you have done
and what will have to be done in the future.
