10 Rules for Being Human | Rule 2: You will be presented with lessons


“You will be presented with lessons. You are enrolled in a full time informal school called “life.” Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons. You may like the lessons or hate them, but you have designed them as part of your curriculum.” — Dr. Chérie Carter-Scott

Have you ever stopped to consider that every single experience you have, every bump in the road and joyous celebration, is part of a grand, personalized curriculum?

Dr. Chérie Carter-Scott, in her insightful book Life Is a Game, These Are the Rules, introduces us to the concept of life as an “informal school.”

In this school, you’re enrolled for the duration of your life, and the lessons come fast and furious.

The concept can be daunting, can’t it?

Tests we didn’t study for, pop quizzes that leave us bewildered, and homework that never seems to end…

But what if we shifted our perspective?

What if, instead of dreading the “lessons” life throws our way, we saw them as opportunities for growth?

Dr. Cherie’s NEW book “Life IS a Game” dives deep into each of these 10 rules from her own real life experience. She laid the grounds by writting the “10 Rules for Being Human” decades ago. But that was just the start of her journey.

She dedicated her life following these rules and now, at the age of 75 she reveals the lessons that she learned by following the “10 Rules for Being Human” for over 50 years.

That’s the beauty and brilliance of this book, it’s a real life experiment and testimony to the truth. Get your copy today!

Rule 2: “You will be presented with lessons”


Here’s the truth, beautiful souls: you designed your curriculum.

Before you arrived here, on this grand stage of life, you chose the experiences that would nudge you, challenge you, and ultimately help you evolve.

Think about it, the relationships you forge, the careers you pursue, even the seemingly random obstacles that pop up… they all hold valuable lessons waiting to be unearthed.

The key is to become an active participant in your own education.

Here are some ways to approach life’s lessons with curiosity, openness, and be a better student…

4 Ways How to Be a Better Student of Life:

1. Embrace the Discomfort

Let’s face it, some lessons sting.

A broken heart, a job loss, a setback on a long held dream, these experiences can leave us feeling lost and defeated.

But within the discomfort lies a potent opportunity for growth.

Questions are powerful. The right questions can transform your life.

Questions like: What is this trying to teach me? Is it about resilience, the importance of letting go, or the power of reevaluation?

Perhaps it’s a nudge to check your priorities, or a reminder of your inner strength.

By leaning into the discomfort rather than shying away from it, you open yourself to the possibility of profound transformation.

2. Become an Observer

Sometimes the greatest lessons unfold subtly.

Take a moment each day to simply observe your thoughts, feelings, and reactions.

Try to notice patterns: are there situations that consistently trigger negativity or fear?

Perhaps you find yourself getting defensive in certain conversations, or maybe procrastination becomes your go to response when faced with a challenge.

This awareness is the first step towards positive change.

Once you identify these patterns, you can begin to understand their root cause.

Are they tied to limiting beliefs you hold about yourself? Are they echoes of past experiences?

By observing your inner world without judgment, you gain the power to choose your response to life’s circumstances.

You can move from being on autopilot to becoming the conscious conductor of your life’s orchestra.

3. Celebrate the Victories

Life’s curriculum isn’t all pop quizzes and heartbreak.

There are moments of triumph, connection, and pure joy.

Savor these experiences!

They serve as validation that you’re on the right track, and they fuel your inner spirit for the challenges ahead.

Take time to acknowledge your accomplishments, big and small.

Did you finally master that challenging yoga pose? Did you land your dream job? Did you mend a broken friendship?

Celebrate these victories with gusto!

Share them with loved ones, throw yourself a mini party, or simply take a moment to appreciate yourself.

Celebrating your wins reinforces positive behaviors and builds your confidence.

It reminds you that you are capable of achieving great things, and it motivates you to keep moving forward on your life’s path.

4. Never Stop Questioning

Curiosity is the key to unlocking life’s hidden lessons.

Asking yourself “why” about everything can be really helpful.

Your reactions, the choices you make, the way the world unfolds around you…

The more you question, the deeper your understanding of yourself and the world becomes.

Don’t be afraid to challenge assumptions, both your own and those of society.

Seek out diverse perspectives and explore different ways of thinking.

This openness to new ideas broadens your horizons and allows you to see the world through a fresh lens.

As you delve deeper into the “why” behind everything, you’ll discover a wealth of knowledge and uncover hidden patterns that will illuminate your path forward.

Remember, there are no wrong questions in life’s school.

Every question you ask is a stepping stone on your journey to greater self awareness and understanding.

Life’s school is an ongoing journey…

It’s filled with both challenges and triumphs.

By approaching each experience with an open mind and a willingness to learn, you can transform the lessons presented into the wisdom that shapes your life.

Remember, beautiful souls, you are the author of your story.

Choose to be an active participant, a curious student, and watch as your life unfolds with ever increasing clarity and purpose.
