- View life from a high vantage point. When we can see the big picture of life the small, momentary problems become much less important.
- Keep your eyes open everywhere you go. You never know what amazing event you stumble on.
- Pay attention to details. Although it’s good to understand and appreciate the big picture, the beauty of life is in the details. Practice by giving flowers.
- Look around. You may have heard the saying, “Take time to stop and smell the roses.” Too often we are in such a rush to get someplace, we miss all the wonderful things along the way. Stop, take a moment to look around, and think about Rule #3.
- Get up early. Sometimes the best times of life aren’t the most convenient. But a willingness to go the extra mile for your passions can memorable results.
- Experiment and try new things. Life was never meant to be boring, and if you’re bored, go challenge yourself. Try something you’ve never tried before.
- Always be ready. Opportunities are everywhere for the person who keeps their eyes open and their heart willing.
- Be patient. So many people are in a hurry, wanting things - everything - right now. It’s okay to wait.
