Don't wait for people to smile. Show them how. A genuine smile makes you and everyone around you feel better and it sends a message to your brain that you're happy.
2. Treat everyone with respect and kindness.
Yes, everyone, even those who are rude to you - and not because they are nice, but because you are.
3. Perform one selfless act.
You get what you put in. When you make a positive impact on someone's life, you make a positive impact on your own life. Do something that is greater than you and something that helps someone else be happy. It will be an extremely rewarding experience and something you will likely remember forever.
4. Avoid needless drama and those who create it.
Choose to spend time with people who you are proud to know, people you admire, and who love and respect you. Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you.
5. Think of the positives.
Start thinking of what could go right, instead of being afraid of what could go wrong. Think of everything that already is right and use this positively to fuel an even brighter tomorrow.
6. Take decisive and immediate action on something that needs to be done.
You can't change anything or make any sort of real-world progress without taking action. It's as simple as that.
7. Follow your intuition when making decisions.
Do what feels right, even if it doesn't look or sound right to others. Our human instincts are rarely ever wrong. Don't worry about what everyone else thinks. Keep living and speaking your truth.
8. Spend time working on something you believe in.
Never put off or give up on a goal that is important to you. Follow your heart today.
9. Meet someone new.
You will be surprised at the lessons people will teach you and the new opportunities they will inject in your life.
10. Exercise and eat healthy.
Those who exercise and eat healthy have a higher sense of self-accomplishment and self-worth.
11. Be a student of life.
Experience it, learn from it and absorb all the knowledge you can!
