Rules You Won’t Learn in School


I stumbled across an old blog post from awhile back.  While it does not have exact relation to game I’m sure you can see the similarities.

People in our society increasingly live in the victim mentality with expectations of life served up on a golden platter.  If they’re unhappy or their life is heading in an undesirable direction they blame everyone but themselves.  Hard work breeds successful men, and even if you were born with a silver spoon you’d never never fully appreciate unless you did the hard work required.

The success of meeting new people especially women is something strong inner game and complete confidences make happen.  People are attracted to those who are happy and successful whether it be in business, family, hobbies or just socially.  People want to be around a person that people want to be around!

While these rules are directed at those in college most apply to any stage of life.  When you stop complaining you can finally start living.

Rule 1: Life is not fair – get used to it!

Rule 2 : The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3 : You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of college. You won’t be a vice-president with a Blackberry until you earn both.

Rule 4 : If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

Rule 5 : Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.

Rule 6: If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7: 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 thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent’s generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they’ll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don’t get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one.
