Answering this question can set you up powerfully for happiness, success and fulfillment.
Think of your highest value and how it could be upheld by a rule you’ve set for yourself, know yourself as and that others know you by. What rule is absolutely vital for you to abide by, that if you don’t follow it you don’t feel like the real you?
Now try on making that your Rule #1 for life and play with it over the next couple of weeks, feeling free to adjust it until you have something that really embodies “you”.
Here’s my Rule #1 as an example:
“Make divine love with the moment; whilst building towards the best & preparing for the worst.”
How do I use it?
It’s written on my homepage front and slightly off center. I apply it to nearly every situation I’m in, and it acts as a guidance system to know that what I’m about to do will maximize me being in flow. I declare it in conversation often, further reinforcing my intention becoming my reality.
What does it mean?
It means that first and foremost I not only live in the present moment, but intend to participate in each moment, whether speaking on stage, putting out the washing or writing this article right now; the same way I would when making love.
Secondly, whilst doing this I’m also staying conscious of whether what I’m doing in this moment is building towards my best future imaginable and/or the smaller predictable improvements in my life that I’ve had planned for the more immediate term.
Finally, I stay aware (but not focused on as to create it by thinking on it too much) that my high hopes and dreams are best case scenarios, so I ensure I’m prepared for it all hitting the fan and blowing into a million pieces, and take precautionary measures towards that end.
What’s the impact of it on my life?
The impact of my personal Rule #1 is that my inner most desires of freedom are at nearly all times fulfilled, whilst my deepest fears of being trapped are avoided and prepared for. It has guided me to maintaining financial freedom for almost a decade, prepared for a zombie apocalypse and most other forms of personal and global disaster, and had me finally crystal clear on what kind of relationship is the best fit for me leading to creating incredible love.
So, what’s your first take on a personal Rule #1?
