Be enthusiastic about everything you do - you were not given a good or bad life. You were given life and it is up to you to make it good or bad. The circumstances in which you were born have no bearing on where you end up.
So stop stressing about the things in life you can't control, and start focusing on what you can, like your attitude. When you approach each day with passion and optimism, you allow yourself to be open to more possibilities. And the more opportunities you are given in life, the higher your probability for achieving happiness and success. So get motivated!
Make the best out of every situation. More important than what happens to you is what you make of what happens to you. The manner in which we approach every situation will determine the outcome. Even during our most difficult situations, we still have choices. And no matter what your circumstances are right now, you have the power to make your life better. The most successful people in life don't have the best of everything, but they know how to make the most out of everything.
Let go of your past mistakes. Sometimes good people make bad choices. It doesn't define who you are as a person. It only means that you are human. And right now, you are exactly where you are supposed to be.
Don't live your life with any regrets. Instead be thankful for your past experiences because they have taught you valuable lessons that have brought you to this exact moment. And right now you are better and stronger because of it. And right now is what matters!
Be spontaneous. When was the last time you did something completely out of character? When we try new experiences, we allow ourselves to feel again. Everything in life can't be planned. Sometimes you just need to let your hair down and live in the moment. Being spontaneous will keep your life interesting and exciting. You deserve this! So instead of saying no, start saying yes!
Do random acts of kindness. There is nothing more gratifying than making someone smile. Random acts of kindness are simple gifts that we can give to anyone at anytime. By dedicating a little time each day to brighten someone else's day, you will only ensure a lifetime of happiness for yourself.
Every one of us has a limited amount of time. Every moment is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The only way to live your happily ever after is one day at a time. So live it! Because in the end, you won't regret what you've done nearly as much as what you haven't.
