10 tips for a happy life

Basing on my own life experience, I have learnt a few tips to live a happy life. I try to be as happy as I can, and the following have worked for me:

1. stay away from anger, it will hurt you and ruin your happiness. Try to be at peace with everyone, cleanse your heart with forgiveness.

2. Try to exercise patience and remember, when you are patient with family, it will bring forth love, if you are patient with others it breeds respect, patience with yourself will yields you confidence and patience with God, is faith.

3. Avoid thinking so hard about the nasty stuff about the past; it will cost you pain and bring you tears. Do not cry over spilled milk.

4.Do not think so hard about the future it will only create fear in you. Live each day at a time, do your best today and let tomorrow be.

5. Do not compare yourself to others, remember life is like a journey, everyone has his or her own destination. Avoid jealousy.

6. Do not let what others say about you pull you down Believe in your heart that you can do it and you have what it takes to get there.

7. Give to others without expecting anything in return, and when you give, do it with a great heart.

8. Work hard at what you do

9. Be positive at all times, shade of the negative thoughts and let the positive steer you ahead.

10. Be grateful for each second, love others, appreciate others, and be humble and trust God.

These are just a few tips that I've learnt over time, they work for me everyday and am happy and I believe no one is capable of taking away the joy in me!

I very agree with point number 9. We have to keep us away from negative or thought. If not, happy will away from us.

Nice advice, I really like 3 and 9 but 6 is a really good one, don't care what others say or think about you, most people will put you down to feel better about themselves any way.

Thanks friend. I have learnt to dismiss negative opinions from people and that has made my life better. I live life believing that I am who I am for a good reason set to accomplish something great, and no one can change that!

I have always viewed it as I am who I am and I am not going to try to change for anyone, take me as I am or don't.

That is all true, positive mindset always brings out positive results, Let perceive all things in a positive way so that we live happy, and in peace. Let God do the rest and wait for his actions, he never been too late, because he already knew us before the foundation of the world.
