Rules make life easy! Rules make life boring! Which one is more true for you? For me, it's definitely something that makes life easy. Being Swedish and totally respectful of standing in line, waiting for my turn, and accepting the rules of the game makes it natural for me to feel it's a good thing. I know this is not the same for everyone. And lately, I have been thinking a bit about the rules we have in our lives. The rules we CREATE. And in particular, the rules we create that are supposed to make things easy, but actually only ever bring pain, frustration, irritation and disappointment. Or worse. Those rules... are they really good? Well, I guess it's fair to say that NO; they are not good. I think it's time to take a good look at the rules we have created in our lives and see if there are some that need to be broken. Replace them with rules that lift and empower you, make you happy and joyful. In this episode, I share what I am personally changing, which rule I'm breaking and the new one I'm starting to live by as of today. It will not be super easy, cause like I said, I am a fan of rules. But, I can totally see the benefit of breaking and getting rid of this rule. It's only causing bad. Like Dr. Ivan Misner said in an interview I did with him a few years back "hockey without rules would be like boxing on ice". Ha! That is a very clear example of when rules are great!
