You always worried

Anxiety - is like a rocking chair, which is frantically moving but going nowhere. You just can not control their actions. Relax and concentrate. Tranquility will help you make the right decision. In the end, very true words of the famous song: "Do not worry, be happy".

You want to control everything

Sometimes people think that they jumped straight out of the comic book superhero. They believe that they can control everything. Any of the plan should be implemented immediately. You know, this problem is hardly under force even Superman. The reality is that we can not control anything except yourself. Get over it, and you can enjoy what is happening, not constantly trying to do the impossible.

you are offended

To take offense - it is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die. You only harm themselves, accumulating negative energy. Let go of the situation - it will do you good. Understand your abuser is likely to enjoy life and do not think about you, while you spend your precious hours out to mentally send him a death ray.

Do you think that everything should go by your rules

Newsflash: the world has no idea about your rules. The sooner you realize this, the more will be happier. No other people have not received your memorandum about how to live, treat you, do your job and build relationships. People often are angry that someone does not want to comply with their inner ideals. And, of course, the decision daunting task - to get everyone to live by his standards - brings a lot of frustration. Accept people as they are and appreciate the whole range of ideas and perspectives.

You compare yourself with others

We all play this game - we take some tiny part of another person's life and compare with our own. For example, I can compare myself with Plushenko and conclude that I skate very badly. But who knows, maybe I sing it better or drive a car? That's why such a look at yourself and others under a microscope is a senseless exercise. The whole will always be greater than the part that you are considering, but you will constantly be unhappy, comparing only the individual elements. If you can not refuse the comparison, send it inside: have you become better today than you were yesterday?

Do you think that will be happy to fulfill his dream when

One says: "I'll be happy when I earn one hundred million dollars" and the second: "I'll be happy when today my family will gather for a delicious dinner." Who among them happier?

Find something that will delight today and let tomorrow surprise you.

You - a pessimist

If you are a pessimist, you notice only the bad in your life. Your perception becomes your reality. Try to focus on the best qualities of people and on the good, that is around. The more you see the sunlight, the less you will notice the shadows.

Money makes life better and easier, to say nothing to hide, but they do not bring happiness. Think, if tomorrow was the last day of your life, would you really spend the remaining time to make money?
