1. Take a chance on others by giving them a hand.

The happiest and most successful people are always looking for ways to help others.  The unhappiest and most unsuccessful people are still asking, “What’s in it for me?”

Ultimately, your greatest successes in life will not be measured by how high you have climbed, but by how many people you have helped up with you.  This is how success leads to happiness.  What goes around comes around.  It’s impossible to not feel good when you are doing good for others.

Today, help those around you and celebrate their strengths.  Lift them up and help them thrive.  When you choose to see and support the best in others, you end up finding the best in yourself.

Not sure about 2-7 but number 8 speaks to me.

8. Take a second chance whenever possible.

We all need second chances.  This isn’t a perfect world.  We’re not perfect people.  I’m probably on my 1,000th second chance right now and I’m not ashamed to admit it.  Because even though I’ve failed a lot, it means I’ve tried a lot too.

Most of the time the only difference between winning and losing is not quitting.  We rarely get things right the first time.  Almost every major accomplishment in a person’s life starts with the decision to try again and again – to get up after every failed attempt and give it another shot.

Live, learn, and let go.  Don’t hold yourself down with the things you can’t control.  Don’t carry your mistakes around with you.  Instead, place them under your feet and use them as stepping stones.  If you take another step, and another, you’ll be surprised to know how far you can go from the point you thought was the end.  Every moment gives you a new beginning and a new ending.  You get a second chance, every second.  Just because something doesn’t go as planned, doesn’t mean it wasn’t worth your while.  Sometimes you have to fail forward, by learning what doesn’t work to discover what does.
