Life – Pocket Reference


Daniel Allen Pierce (a.k.a. “Dapper Dan”)


1         Forgive.

First, you must forgive yourself for all that you have done and all that you will do.

Only then can you forgive others for all that they have done and will do.

Without forgiveness, you cannot truly reach your life potential.

2         Live in the moment.

The past cannot be changed.

The future is uncertain.

Learn from the past, prepare for the future, but live in the present.

Only in the present can you truly make a difference.

3         Love without limits.

Love is the one thing you get more of by giving it away.

Love is its own reward.

Love is everything.

4         Create your own meaning.

Everyone is different.

Everyone changes.

Your life is your own – only you can determine it’s meaning to you.

5         Accept whatever comes your way.

Life is not fair – get over it.

If it was easy, it would have no meaning.

Change is the only constant in the Universe.

Stuff happens, deal with it.

6         Get involved.

Life is full of choices and opportunities.

There are no absolute right or wrong answers, only what is right or wrong for you.

Remember, you are not the only one with a life.

Others out there are making things happen – things that affect your life.

If you don’t like it, change it.

7         Be true to yourself.

You are the only you that you have.

If you are living a lie, you are not living.

Don’t live someone else’s life.

Live your life on your terms.

Your life, your world, your choice.
