12 Truths

These need to be accepted to have a happier life:

  1. You’re not that important – other people are wrapped up in their own lives and they don’t actually care that much. 
  2. Not everyone will like you – life is not a popularity contest.
  3. You are not defined by what you have – money does matter, but not that much.
  4. You always have a choice.
  5. Your feelings are created by your thoughts.
  6. You are accountable for your actions.
  7. Your happiness and well-being are not the principal concern of others – you must take care of yourself.
  8. There is never a perfect time to take action – stop procrastinating.
  9. Someone else is always better off or worse off than yourself – be compassionate, especially to yourself.
  10. Fear will always keep you from living deeply and fully.
  11. Your expectations will always let you down – particularly expectations of others.
  12. Your life is your responsibility – you are not a helpless victim.
