18 RULES FOR HAPPY LIVING



Here are the Dalai Lama's 18 rules for a happy life:

- Take into account that great love and great achievements involve great risk. 

- When you lose, don’t lose the lesson. 

- Follow the three Rs :-
1. Respect for self  
2. Respect for others  
3. Responsibility for all your actions. 

- Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck. 

- Learn the rules so you know how to break them properly. 

- Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship. 

- When you realise you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it. 

- Spend some time alone every day. 

- Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values. 

- Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer. 

- Live a good, honourable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll be able to enjoy it a second time. 

- A loving atmosphere in your home is the foundation for your life. 

- In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past. 

- Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality. 

- Be gentle with the earth. 

- Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before. 

- Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for each other exceeds your need for each other. 

- Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
