Fortunate is the oneWho has learned to admire,But not to envy..
Never miss the opportunity to compliment or say something encouraging to someone
Refuse to talk negatively about others; don't gossip and don't listen to gossip
Have a forgiving view of people. Believe that most people are doing the best they can
Keep an open mind; discuss, but don't argue. (It is possible to disagree without being disagreeable.)
If someone criticizes you, see if there is any TRUTH to what he is saying; if so, make changes. If there is no truth to the criticism, ignore it and live so that no one will believe the negative remark
Cultivate your sense of humor; laughter is the shortest distance between two people. Do not seek so much to be consoled, as to console; do not seek so much to be understood, as to understand; do not seek so much to be loved as to love
