Adopting a Positive Attitude

90% of what happens to us every day is good.

10% of it is bad.

Yet we spend 90% of our time focusing on that 10%.

To guarantee a more positive attitude, focus the majority of your day on the 90% of the things that happen that are good.

Changing People

We can’t.

But few among us don’t fritter away wasted time trying.

The sure way to an unhappy life is to try to change another person.

Accept them with what you perceive as flaws and all and help them without being judgmental or with a goal to transform them because in the end no human has ever permanently changed another person – not with power over them, money or influence.

A More Effective Way to Deal with Enemies

Forgive them and forget them.

Forgive them so that the anger that they provoke does not turn you into them.

And forget them because no good can come from embracing or engaging anyone you feel is your enemy.

The power of forgiveness has two very potent benefits.

One, it lets you rid yourself of mean people.

Two, it gives you the gift of letting go.

The Secret to Avoid Being Miserable

As George Bernard Shaw said “To have the leisure to bother about whether you are happy or not.”

It is why busy people are less unhappy even though they carry their problems with them.

The more we worry about worry, the more worried we become.

There is no need to obsess over fears and worry because that just multiplies the problem and offers no solution.

Perishable Confidence

Confidence only seems to be high when things are going well.

The trick is to think like a winner when adversity strikes.

Ceding success and happiness to luck is a rollercoaster ride not worth the thrill.

Believing, remembering, projecting the next victory large or small is true confidence.

Savor every opportunity to feel good about feeling confidence in yourself.

Then when things get tough, double down on your conviction to bounce back.
