Some advices are time-tested and really work for everyone. They held true some 2000 years ago and hold true even now despite the changed circumstances. Here are 10 such advices that have been circulating over the generations and doing wonders. These advices will help you maintain your cool and add to your wisdom.

  1. Happiness and a negative mindset can’t co-exist.  Those who move forward with a positive attitude will find that things always work out better.
  2. Think of all the hundreds of thousands of steps and missteps and chances and coincidences that have brought you here.  In a way it feels like the biggest miracle in the world, doesn’t it?
  3. The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you accept that the situation is over, you cannot move forward.
  4. Letting go isn’t about having the ability to forget the past; it’s about having the wisdom and strength to embrace the present.
  5. Stepping onto a brand new path is difficult, but not more difficult than remaining in a situation that no longer fits, or no longer exists.
  6. Sometimes you simply have to stop fretting, wondering, and doubting.  Have faith that things will work out, maybe not how you planned, but just how it’s meant to be.
  7. Use your struggles and frustrations today to motivate yourather than annoy you.  You are in control of the way you look at life.
  8. Be selective in your battles.  Peace always feels better than being right.  You simply don’t need to attend every conflict you’re invited to.
  9. Just wish people well, even if they’re rude to you.  Embracing their negative energy only harms you at the end of the day.  Smile and move forward.

When you really pay attention, everyone and everything is your teacher.  Take time to observe and listen.  Take time to learn something new.
