6 Timeless Ways To Stay Out Of Trouble


#1. It’s not what we don’t know that get’s us in trouble, it’s what we DON’T DO
What I was about 11 years old, I really liked played with my dog- Casper. Much of the enjoyment came from running around the house, with the fellow on my tail.! At the time, I had been given several firm warning by my mother- ‘DON’T RUN inside the house, you might fall and hurt yourself’. Of course, as mischievous as I was, I didn’t take the advice.
Then one day it happened. I slipped and fell. I knocked my face (mouth) on the edge of a hardy wooden chair. The repercussions of that incident are still felt today. As a result, parts of my front teeth are fake! Sh!!!!

That was just one example of my life that I shared with you. There are plenty more! I am sure that looking back, you too would have had your moments. How many drink and drive? How many speed and die?

On most occasions we know what we shouldn’t do. Yet, for various reasons, we still do….

#2. Be mindful of who you trust

There is no crash course out there, which will help you with this one! I believe that this is more of a trial and error method! The more experience you have with life, the easier it become to fine tune your judgment.

#3. Stay away from trouble makers

For some odd reason, I have found that ‘trouble makers’ make life interesting and exciting, for a while. Is the true for you?
However, after some time, it all fades away and you are left with pain, anger and frustration.

#4. Take care of your health
Eat healthy, exercise and drink a lot of water! Yes, you already know this stuff. Then why aren’t you doing? Ha… Point #1 proven!

When it comes to health, another observation I have noticed is that we tend to ignore or postpone illness symptoms. We wait until it is unbearable to seek medical advice. Sounds familiar?

#5. Try not to annoy people
Last October, I carried out a survey of certain factors that annoy people. Since, I have already written a post about this, I won’t duplicate it here.

#6. Accidents cause people!



Do the above guidelines work for you? Is there anything else you can suggest?

Good advice. I would add, listen to your self. Listen to your gut feelings! That is almost always the right thing to do.
