LightONYou never know when inspiration might strike. Some of my best blog posts have come to me when I’m driving in my car or running around the track at the gym.

And so it is with what you’re about to read. For some reason, I woke up around 6 a.m. on a recent Saturday morning thinking about what you’re about to read below.

So I started writing, and after about 30 minutes, I was done and knew I wanted to share it with the Blue Gurus community. I hope it helps you or someone you know.

I know my list isn’t all inclusive, so I’d love to know what other items you would add. Please share them in the comments section below.

As always, THANK YOU for your support of Blue Gurus and our blog. We can’t tell you how much it means to us.



-Treat people right
-Know you aren’t in a position to judge others until you’ve judged yourself
-Work religiously on bettering yourself mentally, emotionally and physically
-Always choose “Because it’s the right thing to do”
-Help others
-Are humble
-Laugh every day
-Allow yourself to be loved
-Have given up comparing yourself to others
-Spend time regularly doing things you’re passionate about
-Trust your instincts
-Know that failing is a part of growing
-Have no expectations of other people
-Find the silver linings
-Know being right is less important than being understood
-Your opinion is most valuable when it’s asked for
-Don’t settle
-Live in the now instead of worrying about the future
-Know that money and possessions will never love you back
-Commit to spending quality time with people who build you up
-Don’t spend time with people who knock you down
-Slow down
-Take calculated risks
-Lift people up using the natural gifts you’ve been given
-Aren’t afraid to tell people how you feel
-Aren’t afraid to get outside of your self-imposed comfort zones
-Aren’t afraid to apologize
-Aren’t afraid to cry
Then, whether you realize it or not…
You’ve already won at this thing called LIFE.


  1. I think I may still be in the process of ‘winning’. Working on all of those things everyday…and then one day I will be able to say I’ve won!! Great post. I recently subscribed to your blog and I can’t wait to see what I learn and can take away from this!

    1. Carrie:

      Thank you so much for taking the time to read and comment…and for subscribing to our blog! I appreciate it very much.

      Yes, there’s no doubt it’s a journey and we all slip up from time to time….but concepts like the ones mentioned in the blog post hopefully help keep things in perspective. I know I need reminders all the time.

      Thanks again!

  2. As always, you hit right at the heart at what is important in business and in life! You have a true gift and we are all lucky to be the recipients of your wisdom.
