[How To Live A Powerful, Playful And Passionate Life, Without All The Rules And Restriction That Com



Go to most self-help Guru’s, experts and professionals and you will likely be bombarder with rules, restrictions and regulations. A seemingly never ending list of things that you can’t, mustn’t and shouldn’t do to have a life of power, play and passion. Another seemingly never ending list of things that you have to, must and should do to have a life of power, play and passion. Yet, when we apply these rules, the must's, the shouldn’t's and the have to’s, life doesn’t actually feel all that powerful, in fact, it feels a bit impotent. Life doesn't feel all that playful, it actually feels a bit inactive. Life doesn’t actually feel that passionate, it feels a little indifferent. The thing with rules is, that they restrict. They limit our ability to choose, because we or someone else has arbitrarily chosen for us. Many times have I stated (and many more times will I state) that choice is the path to happiness, which includes power, play and passion. Rules therefore, run counter to happiness. Removal of choice, in my eyes, is essentially the same thing as removal of happiness. If not rules, what then? Principles. Principle - "a fundamental truth or proposition that serves as the foundation for a system of belief or behaviour or for a chain of reasoning.” Where rules restrict, principles permit. When we establish and adopt a clear set of principles, choice is not removed, we simply have decided the bias to which we would like to make our choices. Therefore we free ourselves of needing rules and restrictions because we have a clear idea of what kinds of choices will lead us to where we ultimately want to go. Principles, unlike rules, do not make our decisions for us, but they help to guide our decisions towards what we most deeply dream of for our lives. If you were to look at the areas of your life where you aren’t feeling the power, enjoying the play and experiencing the passion, you may observe that rules reign. If you were to look at the areas of your life where you ARE feeling the power, enjoying the play and experiencing the passion, you may also notice that principles preside. If you want a powerful, playful and passionate life, locate and eliminate rules, generate and cultivate principles. I think you will be surprised as to what happens when you do. Truth, Joy, Love TJ ✌🏻
