Here are Jon's "Five Rules For Life":
1.) Don't sweat the small stuff.
One thing I have learned is that the things we are worrying about today will most likely not be significant in the future. When you find yourself worrying about something just ask, "will this really matter in a year?" Odds are the answer is no.
2.) Think positive.
We have all heard the old adages "You are what you think" and "Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right". If you think positive about your life and what will happen to you, you have already gone a long way to ensure success. Do not underestimate the power of positive thinking - there is a reason successful people have been talking about it and writing about it for hundreds of years.
3.) Follow the golden rule.
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." Our parents and teachers taught us that rule when we were young, and I have found that the way you treat others usually comes back to you tenfold. Treat others well because "what goes around comes around".
4.) Have fun with life.
We only get one life, so why not enjoy it? Do something you like - something fun. You don't want to get to the end and look back at your life with regrets - a job you hated, a relationship that was destructive. It is never too late to change and start doing what makes you happy.
5.) Be humble.
We all have high points and low points, or periods of success and periods of failure. During those high points, remember to be humble because life moves in cycles. It will be much easier to weather the low points if you are not a complete jerk when you are on top. And other people are more likely to help and respect you if you carry yourself with consistency no matter what the situation.
