Almost like a coincidence, I am today in the process of writing a list of my life rules, in order to achieve all my goals and become the person I want to be, and suddenly an email from the Listserve arrives to my inbox, like sent from heaven!.
My name is Javier Sanchez and I´m from Mexico City. I´m 26 and I work as an auditor in a Copper Mining Corporation. I love to work out at the gym, read LOTS of books and walk my dog.
But who really I am on the inside? I am a dreamer, a goal setter, a go-getter; so that is what occupies my mind all day, everyday. Stuff like: ¿How to become the perfect version of myself? ¿How to achieve the life I wish for? ¿How to lead, inspire, and help the people? I´m craving to know the whole world, and as a secret between us, my BIGGEST dream is to live someday in NY, but I still don't have a plan for achieving that u_u.
Such kind of things are my life quest.
I was reading the other day "The Great Gatsby" (which you should read if you haven't because its awesome!) and there is a part at the end of the book (no spoilers) where we learn which were the life rules of Gatsby because he knew from a very young age that he was meant for greatness.
So I decided today that I was going to start my own life rules, and so far they go like this:
1.- THE FIRST RULE IS THAT DON'T EVEN ME CAN BREAK A RULE.
2.- FIRST THINGS ALWAYS COMES FIRST.
3.- I sleep and wake up everyday at the same hour. At 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.
4.- I work out everyday at 6 a.m. at the gym, except for weekends which I only run.
5.- No fat foods ever. That includes sugar (like sodas) or any fried food.
6.- Sundays are for cleaning the house, buy the grocery and preparing my clothes for the week.
7.- I´m a person of integrity and I live according to my values and principles. Some of they are: I never lie and I never take anything that doesn't belongs to me.
8.- I´m punctual to any meeting, and I do mean ANY meeting.
9.- I take care of my image a lot. That includes my hygiene, clothes, posture, smell, breath and calligraphy.
10.- I'm a gentlemen, in my way of talking and treating everyone.
11.- No one is allowed to treat me bad. Also I'm nowhere allowed to treat bad anyone.
12.- I´m 100% self confident.
13.- I´m never afraid to talk to anyone, nor to express my ideas (if they don't harm in anyway to any one).
14.- I never, and I do mean EVER will get drunk again (because I´ve done it and its the stupidest thing ever).
15.- I read everyday. My goal is to read 5 books a month.
That´s how far I´ve got. ¿What do you think about it? ¿Do you have any life rules?
I WOULD REALLY LOVE TO SPEAK, WRITE AND KNOW YOU. IT DOESN'T MATTER WHERE ARE YOU FROM OR EVEN YOUR AGE. AS I´VE SAID BEFORE ONE OF MY BIGGEST GOALS IS TO KNOW THE WORLD, AND THAT INCLUDES ITS PEOPLE.
Before finishing I will recommend two books to you. This are the ones that have literally changed my life and will surely change yours:
The 4 agreements - Dr. Miguel Ruiz.
The Laws of Success - Napoleon Hill
