3 Simple Steps To Being Happier In Your Life

Popularity 5Viewed 6960 times 2014-1-27 05:04 |System category:Life| nothing, people, around, matter, others

"Don't go where you're tolerated; Don't go where you are agitated; Go where you are celebrated; Go where you are appreciated"

Life is too short to be around people who belittle you or make you feel less than you truly are.

First, their actions, opinions and insinuations have nothing to do with you. It is only a reflection of them no matter how hard they try to transfer it to you. It only affects you when you allow it. Dr. Dyer said, "We don't see others as THEY are. We see others as WE are. Likewise, they don't see YOU as YOU are; they see you as THEY are." These kind of people will trick you with perhaps offering you love and then tearing you down because of their own inferior feelings. Too many, too often, fall for it. Don't let it be you.

Second, identify people in your life that make you feel good about life, happiness, love, the world and most importantly, yourself. Hang out with these people. Spend time with them. Go around them more often. Make them your best friends.

Third, be a life-giver and you'll have plenty of positive life-giving friends. Be an encourager. Be a positive force everyone you go and you'll find that people are attracted to you almost magically. The big Secret of attraction (receiving and getting in life) is, giving. It always has been and always will be. Learn to become comfortable in easily and quickly giving genuine and honest praise to others. Look for and find their good. Read Dale Carnegie's book, "How To Win Friends and Influence People." Become a student and expert in 'doing good.'

You'll increase your own happiness many times when you do these three simple things.

    Good rapport. You were clever to get the beat about your paid masters.
    Monkey they work baboon they chop ways. You were being used as tool and when it comes to booty sharing, you take the least. That's crazy.
    Chinese are clever at that. They want to get the lion share but forgetting that when you cut a branch of a tree whiles sitting on it will crush you down.
    You were suppossed at least to be paid half of the money or 300 RMB .But due to greed they sniffed all the money and in the end they lost the students.
