Life's Little Instruction Book


[ :-) ]

Got this in the mail.Since i was lazy to pen down my own version of this, i am pasting the mail contents. But it's a really cool one.The words are great :).



  • Have a firm handshake.

  • Look people in the eye.

  • Sing in the shower.

  • Own a great stereo system.

  • If in a fight, hit first and hit hard.

  • Keep secrets.

  • Never give up on anybody.

  • Miracles happen everyday.

  • Always accept an outstretched hand.

  • Be brave. Even if you're not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference.

  • Whistle.

  • Avoid sarcastic remarks.

  • Choose your life's mate carefully. From this one decision will come 90 per cent of all your happiness or misery.

  • Make it a habit to do nice things for people who will never find out.

  • Lend only those books you never care to see again.

  • Never deprive someone of hope; it might be all that they have.

  • When playing games with children, let them win.

  • Give people a second chance, but not a third.

  • Be romantic.

  • Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.

  • Loosen up. Relax. Except for rare life-and-death matters, nothing is as important as it first seems.

  • Don't allow the phone to interrupt important moments. It's there for your convenience, not the caller's.

  • Be a good loser.

  • Be a good winner.

  • Think twice before burdening a friend with a secret.

  • When someone hugs you, let them be the first to let go.

  • Be modest. A lot was accomplished before you were born..Keep it simple.

  • Beware of the person who has nothing to lose.

  • Don't burn bridges. You'll be surprised how many times you have to cross the same river.

  • Live your life so that your epitaph could read, No Regrets.

  • Be bold and courageous. When you look back on life, you'll regret the things you didn't do more than the one's you did.

  • Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them.

  • Remember no one makes it alone. Have a grateful heart and be quick to acknowledge those who helped you.

  • Take charge of your attitude. Don't let someone else choose it for you.

  • Visit friends and relatives when they are in hospital; you need only stay a few minutes.

  • Begin each day with some of your favorite music.

  • Once in a while, take the scenic route.

  • Send a lot of Valentine cards.. Sign them, 'Someone who thinks you're terrific.'

  • Answer the phone with enthusiasm and energy in your voice.

  • Keep a note pad and pencil on your bed-side table. Million-dollar ideas sometimes strike at 3 a.m.

  • Show respect for everyone who works for a living, regardless of how trivial their job.

  • Send your loved ones flowers. Think of a reason later.

  • Make someone's day by paying the toll for the person in the car behind you.

  • Become someone's hero.

  • Marry only for love.

  • Count your blessings.

  • Compliment the meal when you're a guest in someone's home.

  • Wave at the children on a school bus.

  • Remember that 80 per cent of the success in any job is based on your ability to deal with people.

  • Don't expect life to be fair.
