Think about the world’s happiest, most contented, most fulfilled people...

How’d they get that way?

 

Is it their genes? No. Money? Absolutely not.

It’s about the small choices they make, every day.

Things you can do. Things you can change.

 

It’s about what they know and you can learn:

The Rules of Life.

 

Here they are:

 

100 personal, practical rules for dreaming, planning, living, loving, and overcoming even life’s toughest adversities... 

For knowing what matters... learning from experience...using your intuition... changing what you can...de-stressing... staying younger... getting stronger.

 

Read ’em. Learn ’em. Live ’em.

You’ll feel better. You’ll live better.

You’ll be a better friend, partner, parent, child, human being.

 

You’ll do it: one small, simple step at a time.

One step a day, every day. Starting today.

From the Back Cover:

A personal code for living a better, happier, more successful kind of life

 

Some people seem to be just good at life. They glide effortlessly onwards and upwards, always seeming to know the right things to say and do, in every situation. Everybody likes them – they are great to work with and to live with. They are happy (for the most part) and they know how to roll with life’s punches. They have time for everybody and always seem to know what’s important (and how to deal with what’s not).

Is there something they know and do that we don’t? Is it something we could all learn? The answer is a most definite yes. They know the Rules of Life.

The Rules of Life are the guiding principles that will help you achieve more, shrug off adversity more easily, get more out of life and generally be a happier, calmer, more fulfilled person. You'll feel the benefits – and so will everyone around you.

 

It's your life. How good could it be?
