Live in active voice, not the passive.
Think more about what you make happen than what happens to you.


Live in the indicative mood rather than subjective.
Be concerned with things as they are rather than as they might be.

Live in the present tense facing the duty at hand.
Without regret for the past or worry for the future.

Live in the first person,
criticising yourself rather than finding fault with others.

Live in singular number,
caring more for the approval of your own conscience
than for the applause of the crowd.

And if you want a verb to conjugate,
you cannot do better than to take a verb "to love".
