It only takes 17 muscles to smiles but 43 muscles to frown!

How often do you smile? Smiling is a habit, it needs to be developed. Smile warmly at anyone who comes in contact with you, and see how likable you become.

Do not think that only important people should be made friends with. Firstly you do not know who will become important tomorrow, and secondly even the most unimportant person can do a very big favour to you sometime.

Give positive strokes to others (compliments, pats, hand shakes, a thumbs-up sign, a hug) and see how many positive strokes you get, from the same person or from others.

Learn to love yourself, acknowledge the things you are good at doing, and respect your abilities and build on them.

Even accepting compliments is a skill – if you know how to accept compliments gracefully, you will get more and more of them.

You can make more friends in 2 months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you. Show concern when your friend is upset, has done badly in studies, or is let down by others.

Become proactive: Be for something instead of being against something.

Be for improvements rather than being against your parents or teachers, or anyone who hurts you. Tell yourself that you are going to take life in your control and decide your future.

Learn to forgive others. If you do not, you are allowing them to keep hurting you, controlling your life, and making you miserable. You need to forgive for your own sake, not for the sake of the person who has done wrong to you.
