‘s first rule: adapt to life,
life is not fair, get used to it. Destiny is in one’s hand.
second rule: success is your personality capital
the world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something before you feel good about yourself.
success is the highest state of life, success can change your personality and dignity, conceit is stupid.
third rule: don’t expect
just graduated from high school. You won’t make 40 thousand dollars a year. You won’t be a vice president with a car phone, until you earn both.
success does not come automatically. Success comes from positive effort. Break down goals, step by step, and stick to it.
if you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss, but the boss doesn’t have tenure. Good habit springs from self cultivation.
fifth rule: don’t neglect small things,
flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping; they called it opportunity. Ordinary achievements great cause.
sixth rule: learn from your mistakes,
if you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine, learn from them.
seventh rule: do everything yourself,
before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you are. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parents’ generation, try "cleaning" the worms in your closet.
do not always rely on others to live, we must rely on their own strength forward.
eighth rule: you often have only one chance,
your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not. In some schools they have abolished failing grades; they’ll give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn’t bear the same resemblance to anything in real life.
opportunity is a great asset, and opportunities often come once. Maybe you don’t have the chance, but you can create it.
ninth rule: time is in your hands,
life is not divided into semesters. You don’t get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do it on your own. Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.
