Since we all live busy lives, and don’t always get around to revisiting all the information we have access to, I’ve decided to compile this life guide for a stress-free life.

You may want to display them where they are easily visible: to remind yourself, and others.

2. Not taking responsibility for your actions or in-actions is not okay. Someone else has to pick up the slack.

1. Stop obsessively focusing on the problem and you’ll see solutions and opportunities (about 2cms from your nose)

3. Stop taking responsibility for others. It prevents them learning that actions or in-actions have consequences. It stunts their personal growth.

4. Talk less. Do more. There is a direct link between ACTION and achievement.

5. Simplify and de-clutter! Why make life tougher and more complex than it already is?

6. No, life isn’t fair. Who told you it was? The world won’t change to accommodate you. It’s up to you to fit into the world.

7. Quitting prematurely prevents you gaining traction or building momentum – whether it’s in jobs, careers, partnerships, diets, exercise plans, friendships or belief systems.

8. Get over this failure-phobia – it’s just your navigation system. It stands for:

Failure
An
Invaluable
Lesson

Repeating the same one
Endlessly

9. Admit it, you’re not a perfectionist. There’s no such thing as perfection. It’s just another method of procrastination.

10. What you put in you get out – physically, emotionally, mentally and materially. Value in = value out. Crap in = crap out. It’s that simple.

11. Stop kidding yourself – making excuses may self-soothe and keep you in your comfort zone, but it also keeps you powerless to change things.

12. Risk failing. Not reckless risks. Calculated risks. You will get wiser and more confident each time.

13. No, you’re not stressed because you have a heavier workload and more responsibilities. It’s your inability to manage it, allocate time productively, prioritize and install boundaries that’s causing the stress. These skills can be learned

14. No, government economic policy, your company, your age, bad luck or your spouse are not solely responsible for limiting your wealth-creating ability. It’s holding doggedly onto that belief that is preventing you increasing your wealth.

15. Stressed? Given that at least 80% of a illnesses are stress related, aren’t you playing roulette with your health? Learn how to handle it better.

16. Blaming your problems on external circumstances, other people or bad luck, is missing the plot. If you don’t take ownership for your part in helping to create this situation, you become a helpless passenger on a hijacked jet.

17. When stress speaks – listen! It’s your internal anti virus alert – a threat to your well-being has been detected. It’s an invitation to ask questions and refocus your attention. Surely smart people know what happens when you ignore that kind of message?

18. Dump the drama. It’s a childish way to get attention. It makes you a pain in the butt.

19. Learn to manage your emotions. They’re powerful. Like driving a Ferrari—beyond exhilarating done with expertise. Potentially lethal if you don’t know how.
