21 Habits of Happy People - Global One TV - StumbleUpon
Contributed by Cindy Holbrook “Happiness is a habit – cultivate it.” ~ Elbert Hubbar Happiness is one aspiration all people share. No one wants to be sad and depressed. We’ve all seen people who are always happy – even amidst agonizing life trials. I’m not saying happy people don’t feel grief, sorrow or sadness; they just don’t let it overtake their life. 1. Be thankful that you woke up alive each morning. 2. Surround yourself with happy, positive people who share your values and goals. 3. Accept others for who they are as well as where they are in life. 4. Keep up to date with the latest news regarding your career and hobbies. 5. Don’t wallow in self-pity. 6. Some statistics show that 80% of people dislike their jobs! 7. Take the time to see the beauty around you. 8. Don’t take yourself – or life to seriously. 9. Holding a grudge will hurt no one but you. 10. Develop an attitude of gratitude. 11. Always make sure your loved ones know you love them even in times of conflict. 12. 13. 14.

And the traffic logs indicate that the surge was decentralized (not attributable to a mention in any one major source). You can get an idea of what that post did for StevePavlina.com’s traffic at Alexa (note the big spike at the end of May 2005).

Five ‘Get Out of Your Own Way’ Leadership Skills from Aikido I think there are a few things in Aikido that are important to remember: 1) for every tenkan there is an irimi: Aikido is known, superficially, primarily for it's turning nature. however, for most techniques there is an entering and a turning version.
