Sometimes no matter how you want to live a clean and decent life especially if you are blessed with talents, intelligence and opportunities, behind these success there will people who will hate you. You may ask why and it is because you are the reflection of what they cannot achieve to be.

Don’t you know that most people love to hear words of appreciation? It’s because they value their importance by acknowledging the generosity of sharing what they have. If you just do nothing and keeps on reminding the bills, they will feel like a personal bank on call when needed. This leads to getting tired of helping.

You may not be feeling good today and you want something to snap you out immediately from being sad to being happy.
Here is a quick list of simple and easy ways to cheer you up. The list is in random order so it’s better if you finish reading them and find the best tip suited for you. Some may sound silly but it worked for me.
The way I understand this quote is that it talks about people who never wanted to try their luck and give a chance to see if everything will work out this time. They may have experienced hurt and disappointments and are afraid to feel the pain again so they rather live in misery that take the risk of being happy.
Do you ever wonder why some people manage to carry their smiles and enthusiasm in times of difficulties in life? Even when the odds are against them, they seem unaffected as if nothing happened.
Most of the happy persons I have talked to revealed that being grateful to what you have is a great way to relieve your disappointments in life. Some people consider you luckier in some aspects like having a good health, a loving family, a decent job, a good wife and children, and so on.
I bet you can name right now your strengths, talents and opportunities that others may not have. So this is a good starting point to be happy and thankful.
