EMOTIONS

Trying to win every argument is foolish because no human is perfect and a calm discussion is always a better approach to solving a solvable problem.

Share your grief with someone who cares.

If you can’t change the hated thing then avoid it or try to forget it because thinking about it is a waste of time and unnecessary stress.

Optimistic happiness is your responsibility.

Envy and jealousy is a waste of mental effort and time.

RELATIONSHIPS

If a relationship has to remain a secret then you shouldn’t be in it.

Grudges or no forgiveness has no place in family life or relationships with close friends.

Dare to be different once in a while since most of us should not be trying to win a popularity contest of being boringly normal.

You can’t change what humans think of you but if you are honest, sincere, and reliable it should not matter if they think the worst of you.

If we were aware of everyone else’s problems we would probably want to continue living with ours.

Fulfilling a promise also means showing up on time or being reliable.

A friend in need is a friend indeed.

GOALS

Learn from your past mistakes and bad behavior but don’t wallow in a bad past.

Life isn’t fair or just, but it can be good with consistent optimistic effort.

Life is too short to wallow in pessimistic misery so switch to optimistic effort.

Dedicate much time to the passion in your life but remember that living a full  and satisfying life is more than just your selfish passion.

Don’t just live on future hopes but savor present moments of pleasure also and do things which will increase the probability of reaching those future hopes.

Disaster may occur but always ask-will it matter 5 or 10 years from now?

The only certainty in life is that there will be change.

Growing old is better than dying young.

Get rid of everything which isn’t useful and not a source of healthy pleasure.

When in doubt and there is more than one choice, choose the less risky one.

 

MONEY

Save some money for emergencies and retirement with every paycheck.

Don’t compare your life to profligate spenders because too frequently you can’t afford their lifestyle.

Use debit not credit cards if you can’t or refuse to budget your money.
