How to Be Happy...

1 -Make up your mind to be happy. Learn to find pleasure in simple things.

2- Make the best of your circumstances. No one has everything , and everyone has something of sorrow intermingled with gladness of life. The trick is to make the laughter outweigh the tears.

3 -Don't take yourself too seriously. Don't think that somehow you should be protected from misfortune that befalls other people.

4 -You can't please everybody. Don't let criticism worry you.

5 -Don't let your neighbor set your standards. Be yourself.

6 -Do the things you enjoy doing , but stay out of debt.

7- Never borrow trouble. Imaginary things are harder to bear than real ones.

8- Since hate poisons the soul , do not cherish jealously , enmity , grudges . Avoid people who make you unhappy.

9 -Have many interests. If you can't travel , read about new places.

10 -Don't hold postmortems. Don't spend your time brooding over sorrows or mistakes. Don't be one who never gets over things.

11- Do what you can for those less fortunate than yourself.

12 -Keep busy at something . A busy person never has time to be unhappy.

Robert Louis Stevenson.
