15 Life Rules from Amy Poehler!

I stumbled across this article this morning and I thought it was awesome so I am sharing with all of you. Great advice. For the full article click the link, otherwise just enjoy Amy's words of wisdom!
1.  “Anybody who doesn’t make you feel good, kick them to the curb. And the earlier you start in your life, the better.”
2. “No one looks stupid when they’re having fun.”
3. “Continue to share your heart with people even if it’s been broken.”
4. “Rooting for other people’s failure does get in the way of your success.”
5. “You can’t do it alone. As you navigate through the rest of your life, be open to collaboration. Other people and other people’s ideas are often better than your own. Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, and spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life. No one is here today because they did it on their own.”
6. “Taking risks and making choices is what makes life so exciting.”
7. “Great people do things before they’re ready. They do things before they know they can do it…doing what you’re afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone, taking risks like that—that is what life is.”
8. “I get worried for young girls sometimes; I want them to feel that they can be sassy and full and weird and geeky and smart and independent, and not so withered and shriveled.”
9. “Try to keep your mind open to possibilities and your mouth closed on matters that you don’t know about. Limit your always and your nevers.”
10. “The earlier you learn that you should focus on what you have and not obsess about what you don’t have, the happier you will be.”
11. “There’s power in looking silly and not caring that you do.”
12. “Sometimes painful things teach us lessons that we didn’t think we needed to know.”
13. “It’s just about honoring the fact that, yeah, I should be writing, producing, directing. I should be believing that the world is mine to have.”
14. “When you do talk about yourself or to yourself and you have that tape running in your head about yourself, try to picture you are talking to your own daughter or your younger sister, because you would tell your younger sister or your daughter that she is beautiful and you wouldn’t be lying, because she is. And so are you.”
15. “You deserve love and you’ll get it.”
