Instructions For Life

Author: Dalai Lama.
* Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
* Memorize your favorite poem.
* Don’t believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.
* When you say, “I love you”, mean it.
* When you say, “I’m sorry”, look the person in the eye.

* Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
* Believe in love at first sight.
* Never laugh at anyone’s dreams.
* Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it’s the only way to live life completely.
* In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

* Don’t judge people by their relatives.
* Talk slowly but think quickly.
* When someone asks you a question you don’t want to answer, smile and ask, “Why do you want to know?”
* Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
* Call your mom.

* Say “bless you” when you hear someone sneeze.
* When you lose, don’t lose the lesson.
* Remember the three R’s: Respect for self; Respect for others; Responsibility for all your actions.
* Don’t let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
* When you realize you’ve made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

* Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.
* Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.
* Spend some time alone.
* Open your arms to change, but don’t let go of your values.
* Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

* Read more books and watch less TV.
* Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you’ll get to enjoy it a second time.
* Trust in God but lock your car.
* A loving atmosphere in your home is so important. Do all you can to create a tranquil harmonious home.
* In disagreements with loved ones, deal with the current situation. Don’t bring up the past.

* Read between the lines.
* Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality.
* Be gentle with the earth.
* Pray. There’s immeasurable power in it.
* Never interrupt when you are being flattered.

* Mind your own business.
* Don’t trust a man/woman who doesn’t close his/her eyes when you kiss.
* At least once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.
* If you make a lot of money, put it to use helping others while you are living. That is wealth’s greatest satisfaction.
* Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a stroke of luck.

* Learn the rules then break some.
* Remember that the best relationship is one where your love for each other is greater than your need for each other.
* Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
* Remember that your character is your destiny.
* Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.
