Eleven Keys to Success and Happiness

1. Mend a quarrel
Seek out a forgotten friend and tell them how much you enjoyed them once and that you wish them peace.

2. Dismiss Suspicion
Take a risk of getting hurt and replace that suspicion with Trust.

3. Write a Love Letter
I don't mean a mushy one. Write someone and tell them how much you appreciate them in your life and the joy they brought you at your last meeting. Do this daily.

4. Keep a promise
It's never to late to say?I forgot. If you said you would do something, by all means follow through?.you are the one that will feel better for it.

5. Forgive an enemy
Listen and apologize if you were wrong. Try to understand their point of view. Don't try to be right. Examine your demands on others.

6. Appreciate, be kind, be gentle, laugh a little Does this need to be explained?

7. Express you gratitude Daily
Be thankful for what you do have and who you are. "I was having pity for having no shoes until I met a man with no feet".

8. Decry Complacency
Raise your standards. Mediocrity drains your energy. Excellence catapults your energy to another level.

9. Have faith
Trust and know that there is a greater force out there that supports you. There are no coincidences in life only learning's.

10. Gladden the heart of a child
Children are our future. Encourage them and make them feel special?they are!

11. Take pleasure in the beauty and wonder of the earth
Take time to commune with nature. Standing in amazement of something so huge seems to put our worries in perspective.
