Simple things to do to find happiness…


ATTITUDE – if you have a positive attitude towards life, everything else will follow.
BE BETTER – In all that you do, strive to perfrom the task better than last time and learn something new each day.
CRY – When you’re sad, crying is your bodies way of letting go.
DECISIONS – Make wise decisions and stick to them. The decisions you make today will affect the life you’ll live tomorrow.
ENCOURAGEMENT – Make it a habit to encourage yourself and others, especially when things are not going well. Be a source of strength to those around you.
FRIENDS – Make new friends, keep old ones and let go of those who are a negative influence in your life.
GIVING – Do something for someone for free. Feel the satisfaction of bringing joy to someone else’s life. There is more happiness in giving than in receiving.
HOLIDAY – Now and then we all need a break from the stress that comes with daily living. If you can’t afford to travel, why not spend a week-end at a freind or relatives house or at a nearby lodge? The change of environment will do you good.
INSPIRATION – Surround yourself with people who are motivating and inspiring – the chances are it will rub off on you. Write down your goals and your favorite inspirational quotes and stick them where you can see them every day.
KINDNESS – This is a virtue that’s hard to find these days. Cultivate it and you’ll be as rare as a diamond.
LOVE – Love is patient and kind. It does not envy or boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
MOVE – When you fall do not stay down. Instead get up and keep moving, no matter how difficult it may seem.
NATURE – Enjoy nature. There’s so much to learn about it. Take care of the world and the environment around you as you would take care of a house you are proud of. Do not litter and destroy nature, you are not creating employment but poverty.
OPPORTUNITIES – Keep you mind and your eyes open for new opportunities. Sometimes they present themselves in areas where we least expect them. Grab them before someone else does, and don;t let fear stop you.
PRAY – A conversation with your maker is worth every minute. Make time to speak to Him on a regular basis, through good time and bad.
QUIT QUITTING – An Ethiopian proverb says “Smooth seas don’t make skilful sailors”. Finish what you start. Don’t just give up when you’re faced with an obstacle.
RELAX & REST – Get enough sleep. That way you start the next day feeling refreshed and healthy.
SEEK SUCCESS – Your success is not measured by how much money you have. Aim for success in all aspects of your life: as a parent, as a worker, as a lover, or as a friend.
TIME CONSCIOUSNESS – Value your time and other people’s time. Procrastination (putting things off until later) steals time and gives no rewards.
VARIETY – Variety is the spice of life and it also increases your creativity. Befriend someone who has a different background to yours. Accept that your way is not the only way.
XPEL – Expel negative thoughts from your life. Surround yourself with people who have qualities that you want to develop in yourself.
YOU – Realise that you are unique and special, and in fact the starting point of perfection. Fidn your own unique way of making a positive contribution to society.
ZEAL – Be zealous in following your dreams and nothing will stand in your way. Your enthusiasm will make people want to help you reach your destination.
