Our life, experiences, and lessons learned

Saw this on Pinterest and thought of sharing it here in my blog. I’m familiar to some of the points mentioned as I read it from the Life’s Little Instruction Book authored by H. Jackson Brown, Jr. I have the first three volumes of the book since high school but wasn’t able to keep it. Somebody borrowed it and failed to return it.

Anyway, these SUGGESTIONS FOR SUCCESS is something everybody should take note.

  2. Work at something you enjoy and that’s worth of your time and talent. - A very effective thing to do especially when you are bored. Doing something you really love and enjoy will lift up your spirit.
  3. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully. - Give but don’t expect too much! Failed expectations will only make you bitter.
  4. Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know. – This I am trying to do everyday. Be positive and avoid nega people!
  5. Be forgiving of yourself and others. - I’m never that unforgiving to myself but to others? It depends on the situation.
