10. Play:

Find fun playmates and play with them frequently, thereby reclaiming the magic and wonder of childhood. Re-own the innocence of the joyful child that lives in each of us results in looking at the world through childlike eyes, with awe and radical amazement.

 

11. Generosity:

It feels so good to give. Contribute in the form of volunteer work, good deeds, and random acts of kindness. Give gifts, acknowledgment, your undivided attention, and committed listening.

 

12. Strengths:

Develop your potential, by identifying your signature strengths. As you take pride in them, you will feel the self-esteem that accompanies them and in a way boosts well-being

13. Risk:

Taking risks allows you to grow in courage. Happy people do not settle for comfort and security. They are willing to experience disappointment, failure, disapproval, embarrassment and even humiliation to have big successes.

 

14. Redefine success:

Stay away from the prevailing view of money, status, power, and influence to one where real success is the number of in-depth, loving relationships.

 

15. Self-care:

Practice compassionate self-care, also known as healthy selfishness.

 

16. Worry:

Give up worry, both on the job and in your personal life. Worry is in the future. Those fearful things may never occur. Stay present at the moment, living with a deep trust that things will work out.

 

17. Kindness:

Practice kindness to others and yourself.
