When we hate our enemies, we are giving them power over us: power over our sleep, our appetites, our blood pressure, our health, and our happiness. Our enemies would dance with joy if only they knew how they were worrying us, lacerating us, and getting even with us! Our hate is not hurting them at all, but our hate is turning our own days and nights into a hellish turmoil.

1. Never compare your life with someone else's life. For, you have no idea what he or she does secretly i.e. behind your back. 2. Don't have negative thoughts over things that you can't control. And refuse to bear grudges against anyone right here or out there. In otherwords, forgive all things and everyone. 3. Never over do anything, have a limit and keep to it. 4. Don't take yourself and life so seriously. For, you ought not to do that. I mean, disregard/overlook somethings sometimes. 5. Never waste your precious energy/time on gossip or habits like that. Rather, utilize/maximize your God-given energy and time. 6. Dream big, be a visionary and dare to pursue your dream and vision unyieldinly until you realize them. 7. Listen up, envy is a waste of time. Yes! you already have all you need presently to survive. Any other thing which you think that you need to live comfortably will be given unto you by God in due course i.e. at the right and proper time. 8. Emancipate yourself from the issues of the past. I mean, stop living in your past life and mistakes . For, living in your past is most likely to ruin your present happiness and future success. 9. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. So, don't hate anyone. Do love all and sundry as much as you can. 10. Strive to live in peace with everyone. For, peace is better off than war or conflict. 11. In case you don't know, no one else is responsible for your happiness except your own self. Yes! you heard me right. So, always be happy and never sad. 12. You've got to realize that life is a school and you are meant to learn daily. Moreover, challenges are simply part of life. They do appear just for awhile and then fade away like flowers. Thus, never mind your challenges. 13. Always smile, laugh and share all you have with someone else/others. Beause, you've got to be doing that. Never forget, givers never lack. 14. Conclusively, dare to believe in God almighty and do believe he can do all things. Besides, believe in your own self i.e. be self confident. For, it is expected of you. That's just a piece of advice and words of encouragement for you.

A smooth sea never made a skillful mariner, neither do uninterrupted prosperity and success qualify for usefulness and happiness. The storms of adversity, like those of the ocean, rouse the faculties, and excite the invention, prudence, skill and fortitude or the voyager. The martyrs of ancient times, in bracing their minds to outward calamities, acquired a loftiness of purpose and a moral heroism worth a lifetime of softness and security.

Author Unknown

Stendhal

Abiding happiness is not simply a possibility, but a duty all may live above the troubles of life worry is a poison and happiness is a medicine.
