Three Simple Rules In Life:
1. If you do not go after what you want, you’ll never have it.
2. If you do not ask, the answer will always be no.
3. If you do not step forward, you will always be in the same place.

“People who could identify a goal they were pursuing were 19 percent more likely to feel satisfied
with their lives and 26 more likely to feel positive about themselves,” remarked David Niven in his
book 100 Simple Secrets of the Best Half of Life.

Actively pursuing goals and letting go of “I can’t” is the key to happiness, according to positive
psychologists. But instead of doing it for the pursuit of money, try setting your heart on a deeper yet
more fulfilling goal, like living the life you want to live. Sure money does buy happiness but a study
found that earning after about $75,000 a year, people experience a happiness plateau. The happiness
we get from money has an expiration date. Here’s another takeaway: the same study also reported
that “the materialistic drive and satisfaction with life are negatively related.

Committing to goals despite obstacles subconsciously makes people happier because it gives a sense
of purpose and meaning to their lives. But as you may have already guessed it, it’s not as easy as it
sounds—yet it’s not impossible at all! It all starts with a positive mindset, and then a step-by-step plan
with the help of supportive and knowledgeable people. You don’t have to do it all by yourself.

It’s called the Three Simple Rules in Life but relatively few people ever had the guts to follow these
steps. This world would have been filled with remarkably happy people!
