A person’s perception – is their reality.  PopPop’s Additional Comment: Go back and read the parable titled “Blind Men”—it really explains this idea.

Be there when people need you.

Remember no one makes it alone.  Have a grateful heart and be quick to acknowledge those who help you. PopPop’s Additional Comment:  I have tried throughout this treatise to give credit to those who have written important life lessons that we have used herein. Additionally, I want to thank those authors whose wonderful lessons I have used herein but whose names I could not find.

Understand that happiness is not based on possessions, power, or prestige, but on relationships with people you love and respect.

Pay your fair share.  PopPop’s Additional Comment:  Most of the time I try to pay more than my fair share. I am not trying to show off.  I am trying to make sure that everyone else involved does not feel like they have been cheated.  Yes, it costs me a little more, but truly makes me feel better.

Remain open, flexible, and curious.

Surprise loved ones with little and unexpected gifts.  PopPop’s Additional Comment:   The gift doesn’t necessarily have to be something you purchased.  It can be a surprise hug, a nice comment made to them about them, even a surprise smile or an additional comment saying: “Thank You”.

Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them.
