Life's Little Instruction Book

Have a firm handshake.
Look people in the eye. 
Sing in the shower.
Own a great stereo.
If in a fight, hit first and hit hard.
Keep secrets.
Never give up on anybody, miracles happen every day.
Always accept an outstretched hand.
Be brave. Even if you are not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference.
Avoid sarcastic remarks.
Choose your life's mate carefully. From this one decision will come 90% 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 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.
Keep it simple. Be modest. A lot was accomplished before you were born.
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 you're your epitaph could read, No regrets.
Be bold and courageous when you look back on your own life. You'll regret the things you did not do more than the ones 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 you helped you.
Take charge of your attitude. Don't let someone else chose it for you.
Visit your friends and relatives when they are in hospitals; you need only stay a few minutes.
Begin each day with some of your favourite music.
Once in a while take the scenic route.
Send a lot of valentine's card. Sign them, 'Someone who thinks you are terrific'.
Answer the phone with enthusiasm and energy in your voice.
Keep a notepad and pencil on your bed-side table, Million-dollar ideas sometimes strike at 3 am.
Show respect for everyone who works for a living, regardless for 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.
Complement the meal when you are 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 our ability to deal with people.
Don't expect life to be fair.
