1: Be yourself.
The most important rule of life is to simply be yourself. No matter what any one else thinks of you, or says to you, no one can affect you, if you remain true to yourself. Listen to your heart and always, no matter what anyone tells you, follow it. It will never lead you in the wrong direction. It will always lead you to the places that are right for you, and only you.
2: Do whatever makes you happy and do it often.
Why spend your time doing things that give you no sense of achievement, worth or pleasure? Find what makes you happy and do that as much as you possibly are able. If you can make that your occupation, so much the better. When you are happy, your heart and mind are open and though their openness, you are more able to perceive opportunities and to read the signs that life is placing before you.
3: Never be envious of another person. Your time will come.
The path is a long one and every person experiences highs and lows at different points along their journey. When you see that someone is experiencing good luck and fortune, be happy for them. If they can find it, then they are the proof that the rewards exist, and it follows that you too can find your own rewards. Persevere and your own time will come to walk in the light.
4: Never live with regrets.
Living in the past is wasted energy. You cannot affect the past, but you can affect the future. If there is something that went wrong, can you make it better now? If yes, then do so. If no, put it behind you and move on. See every lost opportunity as an impetus to make sure it does not happen the next time. And rest assured, there will always be a next time.
5: Learn to forgive others.
Forgiveness is a strength. Those that can forgive the wrong doings of others, are more likely to be positive and happy people. Harbouring ill-thought,negativity and malice towards others is maintaining a negative energy within yourself, which will ultimately become detrimental to both your mental and physical well-being. Better to let go, to forgive and to move on.
6: Learn to forgive yourself.
Perhaps more important than forgiving others, is the need to forgive yourself. Everyone makes mistakes. Every person has their own unique set of flaws. Come to terms with who you are, what you have done, the errors that you may have made and then learn to see yourself as the beautiful creation that you are.
7: Never stop striving to reach your dreams.
No matter how hard the path gets, never stop believing and never stop striving towards your dreams. Walking the path is an equally important part of life as the attain of what it is that we seek. Along our path, we learn many important lessons that will shape us and help us towards our goals. The moment that you give up on your dreams, you also lose the opportunity to learn the lessons that you need to learn in order to evolve your spirit to its ultimate point in this life. Dreams are achievable. Keep walking the path because all the time that you do so, the path is illuminated with your light. And that is a wonderful thing.
