Seven Ways to Peace and Happiness

Seven Ways to Peace and Happiness
Rule 1: Let’s fill our minds with thoughts of peace, courage, health, and hope, for “our life is what our thoughts make it.”
Rule 2: Let’s never try to get even with our enemies, because if we do we will hurt ourselves far more than we hurt them. Let’s never waste a minute thinking about people we don’t like.
Rule 3:
A. Instead of worrying about ingratitude, let’s expect it.
B. Let’s remember that the only way to find happiness is not to expect gratitude - but to give for the joy of giving.
C. Let’s remember that gratitude is a “cultivated” trait; so if we want our children to be grateful, we must train them to be grateful.
Rule 4: Count your blessings – not your troubles!
Rule 5: Let’s not imitate others. Let’s find ourselves and be ourselves, for “envy is ignorance” and “imitation is suicide.”
Rule 6: When fate hands us a lemon, let’s try to make a lemonade.
Rule 7: Let’s forget our own unhappiness – by trying to create a little happiness for others. “When you are good to others, you are best to yourself.”
