Instructions for Life ( ~ The Dalai Lama)

While he gives us 19 in total, I’m going to break them up into four different posts. The first five follow:

“(1) Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

(2) When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.

(3) Follow the [three] Rs: (a) Respect for self; (b) Respect for others; and (c) Responsibility for all [emphasis added] your actions.

(4) Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

(5) Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly.” [Undoubtedly one of my favorites of the 19!]

I adore this wondrous and holy man, and hope you’ll check out my next three posts so you know all 14 of his infamous Instructions for Life.
