Ed Foreman’s 10 Commandments
1. Thou shalt not worry, for worry is the most unproductive of all human activities.
2. Thou shalt not be fearful, for fear makes us weak, doubtful and unproductive.
3. Thou shalt not cross bridges before you get to them.
4. Thou shalt be honest and trustworthy at all times, in all circumstances. Honesty is the mark of a great soul; dishonesty is despicable.
5. Thou shalt not take problems to bed with you for they make very poor bedfellows.
6. Thou shalt not borrow other people’s problems. They can take better care of them than you can.
7. Thou shalt not try to relive yesterday for good or illâ€”it is gone. Concentrate on what is happening in your life today.
8. Thou shalt count thy blessings, never overlooking the small ones, for a lot of small blessings add up to a big one.
9. Thou shalt be a good listener, for only when you listen do you hear ideas different from your own. It’s hard to learn something new when you’re talking.
10. Thou shalt not become bogged-down by frustration, for 90 percent of it is rooted in self-pity and it will only interfere with positive action.
