8. Follow Your Heart:

5. Sometimes Silence Is Better:
You don’t always have to react to every situation.

3. Don’t Lose Yourself:
What ever you do, Don’t be a people pleaser. You can never please everyone. If you try to please one, you’ll make the other person unhappy so just don’t do it.

2. Money Is Not The Solution:
Money cannot buy happiness. You have to understand this that being rich doesn’t mean you’ll be happy because often in our aim to become rich we sacrifice our dreams, relationships, time and so much more.
