12 Rules Everyone Should Follow

Life can be sucky, or life can be great. We all have good days and bad days. Some things are entirely out of our control, but most of the time we have complete authority to make life more enjoyable. Here are 12 simple ways to start making the most out of life everyday:

1 – Change your thoughts to be positive.

Negative thoughts are way more damaging than we realize, and allowing them to continue to pass through our minds all day will create a hostile environment for our souls. The next time unkind thought comes to mind, immediately counteract it with a more positive one.

2 – Spend more time doing things that you enjoy.

Actively schedule activities within your week that will make you laugh and smile.

3 – Live in the moment and be mindful.

Try not to get caught up in planning and worrying about future troubles. Just breathe and enjoy what’s going on right now.

4 – Take good care of yourself.

Being selfless is important and meaningful, but nothing will ever get done if you allow your own health and wellness to falter. It’s totally okay to put yourself first sometimes.

5 – Be kind.

This goes for others and yourself. Always be kind, even when it’s difficult. This will keep your spirits up.

6 – Be brave and have an open mind.

Try new things. You’ll never know what amazing opportunities for an awesome life await you in the world if you never get out and do some exploring.

7 – Let yourself love.

Lowering barriers in order to let others in and allow ourselves to love can be terrifying. When we open up, yes, we open ourselves up to potentially be hurt. But we are also potentially creating a new, amazing friendship.

8 – Never sweat the small stuff.

Condition yourself to quickly let go of minor annoyances. If no one is dying or severely hurt, find ways to get passed the situation without letting it upset you.

9 – Understand that life is short.

Train your brain to see the big picture. Time is precious and we all need to truly know that one day we’ll be asking for more.

10 – Search for connections.

Connecting with others and with ourselves is one of the most exhilarating experiences we can have as humans. Make an effort to meet new people, discover your own values, and experience all the world has to offer.

11 – Avoid judging others and let judgement from other people go unheard.

Judgement is one of the most damaging flaws. When we judge others, we only hurt ourselves in return. And when we let the opinions of others dictate how we live, we become slaves to words. Make an effort to live and let others live the way they feel fit.

12 – Be grateful and always show gratitude.

No matter how small or insignificant, every act of kindness deserves immense gratitude. Be grateful for everything good in your life from running water and electricity to special friendships.

Implementing these simple acts will lead to a better life. Life won’t last forever and it’s up to us to make the most of the time we have on this planet. Thanks for reading.

This is How the 3 Power Ranger Rules are Life

In the first episode of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Zordon lists the three rules of Power Rangers that he says all given the power must follow.

These are rules created for a fictional set of power enhanced humans, however, the rules do have value for all of us in the real world as well.

Here’s what can be learned about life from the three rules for rangers:

Rule #1 – Never use your power for personal gain.

This applies to anything in life. If you have power over someone or something, use it for good. Don’t exploit people and situations in order to gain more for yourself.

If you have more money, more skill, more emotional power than others in your life – use it for good. We are lucky to have our unique strengths and therefore we should use them to make the world a better place.

Rule #2 – Never escalate a battle unless Rita forces you.

Rita is the villain and represents all the stressors of life. Don’t make situations worse than they have to be. Keep your emotions in check and the scenario will play out more smoothly.

Some people like drama and love to throw fire on the flames in a fight. This only ends in creating more damage for everyone in the aftermath – emotionally and physically.

Stay calm and let things go. Don’t make an effort to make arguments worse. Take care of the issue at hand and move on.

Rule #3 – Keep your identity secret. No one may know you are a power ranger.

Do good for the sake of doing good things. Be a hero for the sake of saving others. Too often we’re only interested in glory and recognition.

When fame and pride are the goal, it undermines the heroic actions and leads one to only do what’s right when others are watching.

Anonymous good deeds won’t get you followers on social media, but it will make the world a better, safer, and kinder place.

So that’s how the three rules for power rangers can be used in the real world. Basically, use your skills for good, don’t instigate more fighting, and be heroic even if no one is around to witness it.

On another note, I learned that there’s always a catch. A giant floating head with a robot sidekick won’t give out power without setting some ground rules. Which, I suppose, isn’t such a bad thing.

Thanks for reading this post. Go out and use your power for good.
