054: Nora Roberts – 3 Rules of Life
“If you do not go after what you want, you’ll never have it.
If you do not ask, the answer will always be no.
If you do not step forward, you will always be in the same place.” – Nora Roberts

About the Quote author
Nora Roberts is a number-one New York Times-bestselling author of more than 170 novels. She writes under the pseudonym, “J. D. Robb“, and is most well known for her In Death series of books. She has over 300 million copies of her books printed, and she has won numerous book awards.
Nobody becomes a NYT bestselling author overnight. I’m pretty sure she follows her own 3 rules to life.
I like these 3 rules. They are sleek and simple and apply to very facet of life. If you want success, then let these 3 rules guide your choices.
Personally, I applied these 3 rules to my dating life. (Ha, were you expecting me to say how they applied to my entrepreneurship ventures?) I used to be pretty much unable to talk to and go out with girls. The thought of having a girlfriend was pretty foreign to me, but it was something I wanted. After much study (in the art of seduction), I attempted to apply what I learnt. So I:
- Made a commitment to find a girlfriend
- Asked girls out as much as possible
- Got rejected multiple times, but also managed to go on many dates
I kept repeating this process till I got girlfriend. It’s as simple as that. The process wasn’t easy, there was a lot of heartbreak mind you. But, if you look at it from a zoomed out view, the whole thing can be simplified along these 3 guidelines.
If you have applied these 3 rules into your life, I’d love to hear the story. Tell me in the comments below.
