Rule 2: Treat Yourself Like Someone You Are Responsible For Helping
I love this rule from Jordan Peterson’s book 12 rules for life, and in the past week I have had the opportunity to experience exactly what this looks like
I have made it my mission to help people become happier and healthier versions of themselves
This is no easy task… It sounds stupid, but it is actually hard to try and convince someone to live a long and healthy life
Last week we launched a facebook add for our first kids program
We will have almost sold out the entire program, this means that in 2 weeks we will almost have the same number of kids as we do people in our adults program that took us five and a half years to build.
I have taken the below from Jordan Peterson’s book but replaced the example of a dog with a child…
People are better at filling and properly administering prescription medication to their children than to themselves. That’s not good. Even from your child’s perspective, it’s not good. Your child probably loves you, and would be happier if you took your medication, if you are alive, if you are healthy.
There is more to this rule and I highly recommend you pick up the book and give it a look
I get that you want the best for your child, hell! So do I, that is the whole reason for our kids program…
But, wouldn’t your whole family be better off if you looked after yourself as much as you do your child
