My Life Rulz

What?

My Life Rulz are 10 foundational mental rules* to build emotional resilience.

Here are the first six………..

  1. I belong here. I do belong.
  2. I can get used to this place and still grow.
  3. I deserve to feel safe and loved – always.
  4. Sometimes life is good and fair.  Sometimes it’s not.
  5. All my choices matter.  They all have consequences.
  6. God does care, even when it doesn’t seem like it.

* RULZNot rules as such, rather they are read as principles to guide ones life by.  By nature, rules are inflexible and seek to control thinking. Rulz however, seek to guide ones thinking and enhance ones ability to live well.

Why?

Because children are our most precious resource. “One dreams of what a better world this place would be if all our children had received the benefit of committing My Life Rulz to memory before the age of 10 years. But what better time to begin the vision than now? We commend it to you with hope and prayer that it will find a vital place in the hearts and lives of parents, families, Schools and Churches who are passionate about this generation.”

David J Riddell, Living Wisdom, Nelson, NZ.

Because it is not acceptable to have children suffering from anxiety, depression and hopelessness.

How?

My Life Rulz builds a healthy mind and can be grasped by children of all ages, cultures and aptitudes. Using a variety of media presentations this is encapsulated common sense at its best; simple, comprehensive and profound and can be grasped in just minutes.

Resourcing families and communities; My Life Rulz reaches into the depths of the mind to unearth the toxic thinking.  ‘Stinking thinking’ that causes stress, anxiety, depression and suicide along with the many other aliments that hinder our young and increasingly older people today.   Easy to use and no training needed.  My Life Rulz uses a powerful technique of trace, face and replace.  Tracing the thinking to its root, facing the root assumption and replacing it with truth and insight giving hope to those once struggling to find any.   In a world of chaos, where ‘feelings’ rule and fear is reigning, My Life Rulz brings light into the lives of those using these powerful resources. Tested and developed by the authors over many thousands of hours of counselling clinical practice in both New Zealand and Australia. My Life Rulz comes as part of the larger Living Wisdom Library of Counselling resources.  For more on’How’ …….

Here is another great question sent in by a very intentional mother.
- How do we encourage and 'reward' good behaviour without endorsing consumerism?
Another good question and as usual I would like to hear from you too. A powerful principle you can teach here is about mutual benefit and mutual cooperation. What do I mean by that? Well, talk about all the things you do for them on a daily basis, the list is long! Feeing them, clothing them, a nice bed, toys, school drop offs and pick ups, technology, TV, conversations, park time, reading to them, taking them to the doctor, helping with homework……….etc. Talk about what they do for you, the list is short! Tell you they love you, give you hugs and ????? Anything else that is positive or do we move into the negatives already, such as, the tantrums, complaining, resistance and sulking? The scales are no where near balanced, which is normal of course, but, there are ways they can help tip the scales a little, such as good behavior, cooperation, less complaining, learning to be more responsible and so on. The rewards are far more valuable in the long run. Rewards such as: -
o Becoming a trustworthy person
o Developing a good and grateful attitude
o Becoming the kind of person people want to be around
o Parents are far more willing to cooperate with what the child is asking for
o In later years, you are happy to continue being a taxi service and then to teach them to drive
o They are becoming the child that is welcome at their friends houses
It is our character and our attitude that those we live with are inheriting on a daily basis!

Nick is living proof that Rule 7 is true! He is incredible proof that it isn’t what happens to you that does the real harm but how you choose to respond and react will make you bitter or better.
