Secret of life.
Secret of life.
Memorize something everyday.
 Not only will this leave your brain
 sharp and your memory
 functioning, you will also have a
 huge library of quotes to bust out at
 any moment. Poetry, sayings and
 philosophies are your best options.
Develop an endless curiosity
about this world.
 Become an explorer and view the world
 as your jungle. Stop and observe all of
 the little things as completely unique
 events. Try new things. Get out of your
 comfort zone and try to experience as
 many different environments and
 sensations as possible. This world has so
 much to offer, so why not take
 advantage of it?
Secret of life.
Get fit!
 It’s ridiculous to think that we have one
 body, one sole means of functioning, and
 people are too lazy to take care of
 themselves. Fit bodies lead to better
 health, confidence and more success
 with romantic endeavors. I’d say those
 are 3 very good reasons to get in shape.
Learn to focus only on the
present.
 The past is unchangeable so it is futile to
 reflect on it unless you are making sure
 you do not repeat past mistakes. The
 future is but a result of your actions
 today. So learn from the past to do
 better in the present so that you can
 succeed in the future.
Secret of life.
Even more specifically, live in THIS
moment.
 Even 10 minutes ago is the past. If you live
 purely in this moment you will always be
 happy because there is nothing wrong in this
 split-second.
Smile more often.
 Whenever you get a grin on your face, your brain
 is releasing serotonin, the happy hormone.
 Smiling is the natural way to force yourself to be
 happy. Many people even smile for five minutes
 straight in the morning to get themselves in a
 great mood for the day. It is a very powerful tool
 that is utilized less and less as we grow older and
 need happiness more than ever. Just remember
 that while happiness leads to smiles, smiles also
 lead to happiness.
Secret of life.
Don’t take life so seriously!
 Learn to laugh at the little things and this
  whole “existence” thing will be a whole lot
  easier. Be amused by your mistakes and
  failures and be thankful that you learned your
  lesson and won’t mess up like that again. And
  most importantly do things that you enjoy!
  Life is not strictly business, it can be mixed
  with pleasure.
Think positive thoughts.
 When you find yourself thinking a
 negative thought, stop it immediately by
 any means necessary. Slap yourself in
 the face, yell something positive at the
 top of your lungs or jump up and down.
 Do whatever it takes to get back to a
 positive mindset as such is essential for
 continual happiness and success.
Secret of life.
Set aside a specific time to worry
each day.
 Ponder all of your problems and anxieties
  during that time so that they will not distract
  you during work or moments of pleasure. This
  way you can be extremely efficient with your
 time and avoid focusing on negative things as
 much as possible. If you get all of your worry
 out of the way and have the mental fortitude
 to keep from reverting back to them, you will
 be much happier on the daily.
Start your day off right.
 Wake up and set aside an hour for personal
  development activities (meditation, self-
  introspection, observing nature, etc.) Do the
  things that make you feel blissful, optimistic
 and empowered so that you can set a positive
 tone for your day. I guarantee that once you
 start doing this, your days will be more
 enjoyable and fulfilling.
Secret of life.
Figure out what your goals and
dreams are.
 So many people wander aimlessly through life
  simply go for whatever small thing they want
  moment by moment. Instead, decide what
  your perfect life consists of and begin to put
 the steps in motion to reach that place. The
 most satisfying thing in the world (yes, better
 than sex, much better) is overcoming a
 challenge and reaching a goal. We are the
 happiest when we are growing and working
 towards something better.
Learn to be unaffected by the
words of others.
 Most people get very upset when they are called
 negative names by others, but there is a simple trick
 to overcoming this. Here it is: If I went up to you and
 called you a fire hydrant, would you be upset? Of
 course not. Obviously you are not a fire hydrant, you
 are a human being. The same concept applies to when
 someone calls you something that you know you are
 not. They are foolish for saying such things, so why
 would you react with such anger? The only exception
 is when someone calls you something that is true! In
 this case, you should thank them for alerting you to a
 weakness, one that you can now work on changing.
Secret of life.
Develop the ability to forgive.
 Forgiveness is something that most people fail
  miserably at even thought it’s so simple.
 Grudges only bring more misery to those who
 hold them and prevent good relations with the
 target. YOU makes mistakes all of the time so
 why not have mercy when other do?
 Remaining angry feels horrible while forgiving
 someone brings a refreshing sensation to the
 mind and healing to the relationship.
Visualize daily.
 It has been said and proven time and time again that
 what you focus on is what you get. If you complain all
 of the time, you will run into more of the things you
 complain about. The same goes for good things like
 health, wealth and happiness. So spend some time in
 the morning imagining yourself achieving whatever it
 is that you currently desire. Focus is key in this
 exercise, so choose a quiet environment where you
 won’t be disturbed. If you’re having trouble focusing
 and continually find that your mind has wandered to
 something else, read about meditation in the
 following life tip. There is a lot more to this concept,
 so check out the full article on visualization and the
 law of attraction.
Secret of life.
Meditate everyday for at least 20
minutes.
 In this modern world where everyone is so connected
 to everything else via cell phones, TV and internet,
 most people rarely enjoy the beauty of silence. The
 ability to quiet your mind and relax your body is an
 art and skill that everyone should develop. Simply sit
 somewhere, preferably in nature, and focus on your
 breathing or try to think about nothing. This is going
 to be extremely hard at first! You might find it boring
 or just plain impossible to think of nothing, but you
 will get better and you will learn to love it. Post-
 meditation, you will feel extremely clear-headed and..
 well, just plain wonderful. The only way to really
 understand this sensation is to try it.
Learn to control your mind.
 What kind of skilled human are you if you cannot
 even control your own thoughts? While the
 human mind is described as being a stream of
 consciousness, that does not mean you can’t
 decide where your stream flows. Techniques like
 meditation and the 3 ways to flush out negative
 thoughts will aid you immensely in learning to
 control your mind.
Secret of life.
Learn to control your emotions.
 The only person that can make you unhappy is
 you! You are the one that decides to be affected by
 the words and actions of others. Realize this so
 that the next time you experience a negative
 emotion, you can find the strength within yourself
 to overcome it.
Relax!
 This one is for you workaholics out there (myself
 included). Yes, work is very important and
 productive but you need to take some time to chill
 out everyday or you are going to burn out faster
 than a candle with no oxygen. Additionally, you
 need to reward yourself for a job well done. What’s
 the use of doing all of that work if you can’t have a
 little fun from time to time.
Secret of life.
Work on making good first
impressions.
 Practice a strong, firm handshake and the small
 talk that generally goes along with meeting
 someone for the first time. People won’t know
 what to think of you if you have nothing more to
 say beyond “My name is _______, nice to meet
 you.” Also make sure you remember names, as
 mentioned previously. Who knows, you may be
 going into business with or marrying this person
 you’re meeting for the first time if you make a
 good impression. Be sure and make an excellent
 one.
Be mysterious.
 Don’t let off everything about you and definitely
 leave out some major details. There is something
 both alluring and mesmerizing about someone
 who no one knows fully about. I’m not saying to
 confide in no one or to alienate yourself. Just
 think James Bond.
Secret of life.
Come up with a life mantra.
 You know, like “Carpe Diem” or “Live life to the
 fullest,” but not as cliché. Make it something that
 really hits home with you so that you will actually
 stick to it. Make sure it’ not so specific that it
 rarely applies but also not so general that it’s not
 personal.
Secret of life.
Get good at something.
 Call it a hobby or a passion, whatever it is, just get
 damn good at it. Your occupation does not count!
 Make it something that you can practice often
 enough to excel at. Examples: Magic tricks,
 surfing, ping-pong, creating short films, and
 cycling. It can be anything but I would
 recommend choosing something that: 1) You are
 passionate about 2) You can bust out at any
 moment to display your skills.
Keep your brain sharp.
 The majority of people are stuck in ruts. They go to
 the same job everyday, hang out with the same friends
 and eat at the same places. While that may feel safe,
 it’s not the most stimulating lifestyle for your brain.
 Those synapses have been built up enough, so try
 something that you do NOT know how to do! Buy a
 model car kit, master the art of sudoku or crosswords,
 or go pick up another major at your nearest college.
 The point is you need to be learning new things to
 keep your brain honest. Form new synapses by forcing
 your mind to work in ways it has not worked before.
 Just like physical workouts, doing too much of the
 same exercise will eventually give no results.
Secret of life.
Love is all there is.
 If you truly want to be a master of life, let love be
 in your every action. Love your friends, family and
 enemies alike. If you accomplish this, you will be
 seen as a leader among everyone that allows
 hate, envy, disgust and all other negative
 emotions into their lives. Love is so rare in this
 world when compared to the massive presence of
 hate that by exuding love, you will immediately
 see yourself and the people around you change.
 Love. Love. Love.

  • 36. Keep your brain sharp.  The majority of people are stuck in ruts. They go to the same job everyday, hang out with the same friends and eat at the same places. While that may feel safe, it’s not the most stimulating lifestyle for your brain. Those synapses have been built up enough, so try something that you do NOT know how to do! Buy a model car kit, master the art of sudoku or crosswords, or go pick up another major at your nearest college. The point is you need to be learning new things to keep your brain honest. Form new synapses by forcing your mind to work in ways it has not worked before. Just like physical workouts, doing too much of the same exercise will eventually give no results.
  • 38. Love is all there is.  If you truly want to be a master of life, let love be in your every action. Love your friends, family and enemies alike. If you accomplish this, you will be seen as a leader among everyone that allows hate, envy, disgust and all other negative emotions into their lives. Love is so rare in this world when compared to the massive presence of hate that by exuding love, you will immediately see yourself and the people around you change. Love. Love. Love.
