Don’t spend your time worrying about the future, especially scenarios that you’ve created in your head. You’ll find that a lot of your problems go away if you just simply focus on the things you can deal with right now as opposed to future problems that haven’t even happened yet.
Letting go of the past is crucial
Don’t let anything that happen to you in your past negatively affect who you are today. Constantly going over past mistakes or wishing that things were the same as they were back then takes away from living right now. We are
You have to make things happen
Good things aren’t just going to fall into your lap. You’re the one who has to make good things happen for yourself. Instead of spending your time complaining about things, use that time constructively to change things.
Appreciate what you have
Before you try to attain wealth and success, you have to first learn to appreciate what you have. There are a lot of things to be thankful for. Do not compare yourself to those above you, you will just feel discouraged. Instead, compare yourself to those that are less fortunate. That way, you will learn how to be appreciative and grateful.
Don’t worry about things that you can’t change
Gas prices are going to rise. Politicians are going to lie. These are just things that are always going to be. Spend your time and energy on things that you have control of and you’ll be a lot happier.
Live in the moment
When you’re doing something especially when you’re with someone, don’t worry about checking Facebook and twitter or anything else and just be there. Life isn’t lived on a 4 inch screen. It’s lived here and now, so don’t miss out on it.
Don’t be afraid to make mistakes
Take risks and pursue your dream while you still can. It’s never too late to pursue your passion but the younger you are, the easier it is to bounce back from your mistakes if things don’t turn out the way you plan them.
Life is a way too short to entertain negative people
Your mind will be blown when you see how much better your life gets when you simply cut out the negative people. Use the time and energy that you would spend dealing with them to build a relationship with people who enrich your life.
Family is paramount
Friends and even relationships come and go just like success and wealth, but only family will be there through thick and thin.
Holding grudges only hurt you
Holding a grudge against someone because of something that they did to you in the past only hurts you not them. You need to either reconcile the problem with the person or just simply forgive them.
