While it’s highly likely that you were raised to follow the rules, there are some instances in life, which it’s beneficial to break the rules.
Why it’s well worth breaking the rules from time to time:
1. Some rules are made to be broken
While there are some rules which have been created for good reason, some rules really are made to be broken. As an example, you should not feel pressured to pursue higher education or to get married and settle down by a certain age, as there are a wide variety of life paths which you can choose to follow, at every stage of your life.
So if you dream of quitting your monotonous, soul-draining job in order to start your own business or to travel around the world, it’s well worth forgoing the life path which your friends or family members have set out for you, in order to follow your own passions in life.
2. Most rules, aren’t designed to lead you to a state of contentment happiness
One of the best reasons to break a few rules in your life is that a lot of rules won’t lead to a life of happiness. As an example, if you continue to follow the same career path even though it makes you unhappy because you’re expected to stick with the same career path for life, you’ll end up with a boatload of regrets.
In order to avoid becoming bitter and twisted, it’s well worth breaking the rules in your life, which don’t aid your life and instead will cause you to feel both unhappy and unfulfilled.
3. It’s far wiser to make your own rules
If you want to lead a happy, successful life, it’s well worth creating your own set of rules, instead of opting to spend your life following other peoples rules. In order to create your own rules, let your own conscience and morals guide you. However, keep in mind that it’s completely okay to alter the rules which you create as you evolve as a person and gain new information about life and about yourself.
4. Succesful individuals aren’t afraid to break a couple of rules, now and then
Individuals who achieve a great level of success, never let others define what they are and aren’t capable of achieving. So if you’re looking to achieve a high level of success in each area of your life it pays to break a few rules once in awhile!
If you’re wondering whether to follow a rule, think to yourself, will following this particular rule bring you closer to achieve the success you desire, or make it harder for you to achieve a phenomenal amount of success.
So if you’re looking to obtain great financial and personal success in your life, it’s definitely worth challenging life’s rules and creating your own rules. The latter of which will get your closer to achieving personal fulfillment in your life. So what are you waiting for, today’s the day to start breaking a few outdated, unrealistic rules.
