Internal Rules and Codes
How one lives their lives is their business, the only one you can truly control is yourself... But how do you keep yourself in check.
I've heard "you have to stand for something or you'll fall for everything" or some variation of that many times in my life. Now none of us are perfect, but how do you make tough decisions in your life and how do you become a person that other people can rely on and count on and form those strong bonds with.
Over the years my core beliefs on most topics really haven't changed much and my "internal rules" haven't changes as, they've been refined.
Now I'm not going to go listing all mine, because, well they're mine. You need to find your own, but I will highlight a few as we continue this journey... In a previous post I talked about one I have, keeping my mouth shut unless I know I'm right.
Here is another one... "Time and Place Theory" I'll call it. There is a time and place for everything and probably more times and places NOT for some things. There are times and places to be goofy or loud, and times and places not to be goofy or loud. There is a time and place to the center of attention and a time and place to be quiet and blend in. Learning how to evaluate your situations and surroundings is important, but it's a great skill to have.
