Dr. Oz spoke at a college commencement graduaiton. He shared his 10 keys for life.

He shared ten his points in the style of Letterman by counting down to the best one.

Dr. Ozs Ten Keys for Life

10. Find what makes you come alive, what gets you in a zone, what brings you peace and spend some time doing that everyday.

9. Generate an expertise outside of your normal area of work, so you are more balanced. Get comfortable being uncomfortable and you might be surprised where it takes you. Dr. Oz is a heart surgeon practicing in NYC. When he was first asked to appear on The Oprah Show it stretched him out of his normal comfort area, but its taken him places he never dreamed hed go.

8. Develop a system that works for you and stick to it. Routine brings you comfort and purpose during times of stress and change.

7. Find a mentor!

6. Whatever you choose to do do it with a childlike passion. Give your all to it.

5. No one is a jerk on purpose, so give people the benefit of doubt. Dont judge too quickly. Let people surprise you.

4. Recognize that relationships have to keep growing to survive. Average relationships only last 7 years so reinvent the relationships close to you to keep them strong.

3. Dont forget your body! Taking care of your body is one of the best things you can do for yourself.

2. Live in the present!! In the moment. Some of the most dangerous words are if only!

1. You must make the driving force of your life LOVE! No matter what, love has to guide you in all you do.

Thank you for sharing. I think #2 is so important because we can easily get caught up in being too futuristic ie. when we are thin.
