28 of the best pieces of advice about life you'll ever read

28 of the best pieces of advice about life you'll ever read
Have the courage to live a life true to yourself, not the life others expect of you. Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity. “There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.” Don’t make decisions when you’re angry. “Never argue with a stupid person, they’ll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.” Only pack what you can carry yourself. Remember you’ll always regret what you didn’t do rather than what you did. “You’d worry less about what people think about you if you knew how seldom they do.” If you blame it on someone else, don’t expect it to get better. “You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, but there will always be someone who hates peaches.” If the grass is greener on the other side, there’s probably more manure there. Don’t give up what you want most for what you want now. With regards to the opposite sex: If you look hungry, you’ll starve. Related:  lifestyle

40 Tips for a Happier Life Since the end of the 90s a new branch of the science, also known as Positive Psychology has been dealing with the essentials for happiness. In order to help you find out which happiness potentials are maybe lying idle with you, I have summarized the 40 most important insights on the subject “happiness” in an abbreviated format in the following “checklist”. 1. Get to know yourself really well! Whoever knows more about him/herself, will better be able to tap into his/her potential, advance his/her development and learn to better deal with critical issues. 2. Professional and private activities conveying the feeling of absolute fulfillment create “flow” in us – and that makes us happy. 3. People living in long-lasting, good partner relationships are evidentially happier than singles. 4. 5. Positive social contacts reduce stress and promote health. 6. 7. An essential condition for satisfaction and happiness is to make peace with one’s own history and past and accept it the way it is. 8. 9.
