I'd recommend that you print out various versions of these and then write your own, even framing them and/or putting into your Reminders Notebook.


If it was wise for running the government of the United States, wouldn't it be wise to have a Bill Of Rights for yourself in running your life?  

Unclarity about this is a huge obstacle for many people, as the uncertainty has one wobble back and forth and perform at a much lower level that is required to have a happy life.

I like the way this discussion lays out a Sample Personal Bill Of Rights, together with why you might do one for yourself.

Look at the government archived copy of the Bill Of Rights, and, if you wish, read the  making of the charters and/or the impact of the charters.    This is at US Bill Of Rights Transcript.  Download onto your computer and/or print a copy.

My rendering of My Bill Of Rights, largely in the form of the US Bill Of Rights is included in this link:  My Bill Of Rights - Keith.  (Linked to that:  My Personal Declaration Of Independence .)


The Universal Declaration Of Human Rights adopted in 1948 by the General Assembly Of The United Nations.

The general versions for you to consider

The Human Bill of Rights

You have the right to be you - the way you are. the way you want to be.

You have the right to grow, to change, to become, to strive. to reach for any goal, to be limited only by your degree of talent and amount of effort.

You have the right to privacy-in marriage, family, or any relationship or group-the right to keep a part of your life secret, no matter how trivial or important, merely because you want it to be that way.

You have the right to be alone part of the each day, each week and each year to spend time with and on yourself.

You have the right to be loved and to love, to be accepted, cared for, and adored, and you have the right to fulfill that right.

You have the right to ask questions of anyone at anytime in any matter that effects your life, so long as it is your business to do so; and to be listened to and taken seriously.

You have the right to self-respect and to do everything you need to do to increase your self-esteem, so long as you hurt no one in doing so.

You have the right to be happy, to find something in the world that is meaningful and rewarding to you and that gives you a sense of completeness.

You have the right to be trusted and to trust and to be taken at your word. If you are wrong, you have the right to be given a chance to make it good if possible.

You have the right to change your mind.

You have the right to be free as long as you act responsibly and are mindful of the rights of others and of those obligations that you entered into freely.

You have the right to win, to succeed, to compete, to make plans. to see those plans fulfilled. to become the best you can possibly become.

You have a right to boundaries and limit, a right to be intentional, a right to choice.

Another good one called Basic Human Rights For Self-Development is good, too.
