A couple things that work for me.
I have had good results "living" by these basic rules (many more of course) but these resonated with me. Maybe its "trying to live by" these rules because I cant do it all the time but they are a goal and reminder
Don Miguel Ruiz's - The Four agreements
1. Be Impeccable With Your Word - Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
2. Don't Take Anything Personally - Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won't be the victim of needless suffering.
3. Don't Make Assumptions - Find the courage to ask questions and to express what you really want. Communicate with others as clearly as you can to avoid misunderstandings, sadness and drama. With just this one agreement, you can completely transform your life.
4. Always Do Your Best - Your best is going to change from moment to moment; it will be different when you are healthy as opposed to sick. Under any circumstance, simply do your best, and you will avoid self-judgment, self-abuse and regret.
One more is "love yourself". Cant have love if you don't love yourself. And this is more than just a simple "I love myself" comment. Its treating yourself right, respecting yourself and knowing when to dig deep down inside and drop the ego and any requirement for external recognition. Learn to be happy just because. Be happy and be alive. Live and enjoy waking up in the morning. BUT none of this is easy! Its a constant battle. But, each step brings more happiness and even more success.
I also believe in the law of attraction.
And my three G's to the law of attraction are: Gratitude (have gratitude for what you have and we all have something to be grateful for), Give (Give what you can (and what you want back) like time, love, friendship, etc) and Get (get what you give back).
