My Rules I Live By…

My friends often tell me, “I love how you think about things.” It’s taken years of work to get to where I think like I do today.

I have some personal simple rules I live by that help me think like a pro…

“I will figure this out.”

“I refuse to worry.”

“Make a decision so we can get to the doing part.”

“Regret is never an option.”

“Easy is always better than complicated.”

But it wasn’t always like this.

At 17 I attempted suicide so obviously I wasn’t “born” this way. My podcast “My Story About Depression and How I Overcame It” goes into detail on this.

What I did was simple. 

I came up with a few rules about how I wanted to think about my life.

When I caught myself not thinking by my rules, I stopped and told myself those thoughts. No joke. I often say those things out loud just to make sure I heard my damn self.

Nowadays I rarely catch myself breaking the rules. But when I first started it was a lot of talking out loud and redirecting through the day.

Like 736 times a day, I would say.

So, what are your rules you live by?

Here’s the thing. You have them already. Make sure they are working for you.

    I just subscribed to the podcast or maybe it’s a “groupie” but I want to find how I can open and listen to some of older podcasts let’s say #46. I only see new ones in my library

    Rules I live by:
    1. Never cry over anything that can’t cry over you.
    2. Choose kindness.
    3. Own up to your shit. Apologize.
    3. Just keep swimming…

    Corinne I cannot thank you enough for your podcasts. I found it shortly after the beginning of the year and I love it. I knew I was on a journey to change but recently that path has been filled with tools to help me succeed. Like talking nice to myself. Thanks so much for what you do.

    Hi, I'm Corinne

    I lost 100 pounds and get what it is like to be overweight and feel defeated. I did a complete mental and physical transformation and now I teach women how to do the EXACT same thing. You can get started today with the free course.
