Start your day early. Wake up early. Eat your breakfast. You can do a lot because you have time to do it. If you give yourself time, you give yourself the opportunity to do the things you can do. You can take advantage of the day. Time is your asset. Use wisely. Use it to do good things. You can make it your own and you can live it to be productive not only for yourself but also for others.
Spend time with good friends
Keep hanging out with good people. Be with people who truly care about your wellbeing. These people have the power to influence you positively. They will even contribute to your success because they will tell you what is good for you. They will give you good advice when you need it. They will even provide the best for you.
Good people will not bring you down. They will be honest enough to tell you what they think and not just what you want to hear. You need this kind of criticism to help you get better because you need to know the truth about yourself. Best friends remain best friends through the years.
Pay attention to other people
Don’t let other people worry about you. Don’t let people get hurt because you don’t care. Apologize if you offended them. Be careful with your words. Tell them the truth if you have to without insulting them. Honest words may hurt, but they don’t have to be condescending. There is a right place for the right things.
Help others, but don’t offer more than you can really give. Intentions may hurt more when words and actions don’t meet. Do what you can and that is more important than assuming what you can’t do. Support people when they are feeling down. Give words of encouragement. Appreciate other people’s efforts. It is the most precious feeling.
When you realize that you were wrong, accept and apologize. One of the steps to getting better is to learn from your mistakes and let others teach you. Humility is the character of every wise man. ask for help if you need it. Say please and say thank you. Listen to others when they voice their opinion. Don’t tell them they are wrong. You get a turn to voice yours.
End your day with peace of mind
Make peace with yourself. Do good to others. Be kind to yourself. Love yourself. Respect others. Earn their respect by working hard. Think before you decide. Choose a good one. Listen to good advice. Apply what you’ve learned. Do what makes you happy, and do it well. Believe in yourself. Love what and who makes you happy.
The simple Life
Don’t put yourself in a situation you can’t live with. Don’t overlive. Don’t burden yourself with what you can’t afford. Live what you can sustain. Don’t force yourself to live a lifestyle that your income can’t support. Know your limitations. The simple Life. Want less, enough and strive for more.
