Ten Rules for Being Human

by Cherie Carter-Scott


You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it’s

yours to keep for the entire period.


You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time

informal school called, “life.”


There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of

trial, error, and experimentation. The “failed” experiments are as much

a part of the process as the experiments that ultimately “work.”


Lessons are repeated until they are learned. A lesson will be

presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you

have learned it, you can go on to the next lesson.


Learning lessons does not end. There’s no part of life that

doesn’t contain its lessons. If you’re alive, that means there are

still lessons to be learned.


“There” is no better a place than “here.” When your “there” has

become a “here”, you will simply obtain another “there” that will again

look better than “here.”


Other people are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate

something about another person unless it reflects to you something you

love or hate about yourself.


What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the tools

and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice

is yours.


Your answers lie within you. The answers to life’s questions

lie within you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.


You will forget all this.

These are so true! Number 8 is especially powerful.
