Here are Brett's "Five Rules For Life":

1.) In life, do good and do well.
Real success comes from pursuing your talents and enriching the world with their expression.

2.) They lead best who follow their calling.
Those who follow a genuine calling set an inspiring example with their actions.

3.) Not all who rave are divinely inspired.
Passion without wisdom is mere noise.

4.) True love never dies; it has to be killed.
Love is making another's happiness your own.

5.) Be your ideals; in some measure, you're already the person you wish to become.
Conscious living is striving to be who you are when you're at your best.
