Lately, I have been spending most of my time on Instagram trying to keep up with “Gary Vaynerchuk” after reading a post somewhere on someone’s “Top 7 Rules of life”. 
But I found something that has really helped me so so much. I found several videos of this guy which appeared he’s an entrepreneur who also inspires and motivates people through videos and pictured quotes.
He’s so much of an inspiration to me right now.
I came across an article ( actually centered on Rules of life) but it made much reference to Gary vaynerchuk, and I felt I should share it across. So, I’m not selfish about inspiration. lol.

Rule #7: Complaining is draining:

Will Bowen has this idea of a complaint free world. He made a bracelet you can wear for 21 days and every time you complain, you have to put it on your other arm and start over.

Complaining has an ROI of zero. Always. Complaining is draining.

I don’t want to spend a single minute of my life lamenting the situation, when I can use that same minute to try and make it better.

Rule #9: Success means doing your best


This might be the most important one. Legendary basketball coach John Woodenonce said:

“You can lose when you outscore somebody in a game. And you can win when you’re outscored.” ~John Wooden

My parents always told me that, as long as I did my best, I could be satisfied with myself. I really believe that. Not everything is in your control.

Do what you can for what you can do something about and you’ll have done the best you can do.

When you’re not winning on the outside, that might mean you have to audit yourself and take your talents elsewhere. But when you’re winning on the inside, it’s easy to have patience and let the world catch up.

In 1934, John Wooden taught English and sports. He didn’t like how the students’ success was measured. So he defined it for himself:


Looks like this perspective worked out well for him and everyone he taught it to. So why not for me?. There we have it, his top 7 rules of life.

I’d like to think it’ll still be part of my top rules of life, 7 years from now. Today, I hope you have time to grab a coffee, coke or Nutri-milk like me, sit outside and think for a while, because now, I really want to get my game together…

What are yours?
