4 rules to make your life a miracle
The book leads up to a final message from Simon. In his last words to Og, he outlines four rules to make your life a miracle.
- Count your blessings.
You possess every skill, every talent, and every requirement to do great things with your life. Be thankful for it.
- Proclaim your rarity.
In the history of the world, there has never been anyone just like you. There never will be. What is such a treasure worth? You are priceless! Don’t devalue yourself.
- Go another mile.
Excellence is what is required from someone as rare as you. Mediocrity will not suffice. Give more than is expected of you.
- Use wisely your power of choice.
Note the word “power” – there is power in our choices. Power for good or evil. Power to grow. Power to wither. Power to create or destroy. Will you choose to make your life a miracle?
