Take care of yourself. Good health is everyone’s major source of wealth. Without it, happiness is virtually impossible.
Resolve to be cheerful and helpful. What you give to the world comes back to you.
Resolve to listen more and talk less. No one ever learns anything by talking.
Be cautious in giving advice. Wise men don’t need it and fools won’t heed it.
Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and wrong. Sometime in life, you will have been all of these.
Do not equate money with success. The world abounds with big money-makers who are miserable failures as human beings.
Resolve to not procrastinate another day, for it is the thief of
today’s peace of mind and tomorrow’s happiness.
Resolve to be the person you want to be … today!
