1 of 20

“Make others happy. That which you give to others, comes back to you.!”

2 of 20

“Appreciate everyone you meet. It is the deepest principle of human nature to feel happy when appreciated.”

3 of 20

“Forgive before forgiveness is asked.”

Before going to bed one should think of all those who have wronged us by name and forgive them.

4 of 20

“Don’t hold grudges against anyone in your heart.”

We should hold no bitterness or resentment in our hearts.

5 of 20

“Cleanse and un-clutter your mind.”

Unhappy thoughts only cause sorrow. Thoughts are forces, the building blocks of  life. Watch them carefully and keep away lust, anger, greed, envy, jealousy, etc.

6 of 20

“What matters is not what happened, but how you think about it.”

This depends on our attitude which should be positive and constructive.

7 of 20

“Always expect the best, but be prepared for the worst.”

This will prepare us for any eventuality and we will not get a shock.

8 of 20

“One should be full of the spirit of wonder belonging to children.”

This is possible only by belief that our Parent is always with us to guard and guide us.

9 of 20

“Keep your body healthy and strong.”

We need to follow four doctors – Dr. Diet, Dr. Quiet, Dr. Sunshine, Dr. Laughter and all this assisted by some physical exercise as well.

10 of 20

“You do not have to win all the time.”

Then, there will be no disappointment when one loses.

11 of 20

“Friends are more important than money.”

The latter is useful, but friendship is essential.

12 of 20

“Accept yourself as you are, unconditionally.”

Man is a bundle of qualities – good, bad and  indifferent. Each one is unique. We must strive for

perfection but yet accept – so we should believe and achieve.

13 of 20

“Believe in yourself, but know your limitations.”

We are not yet perfect, so this belief should not lead to complacency.

14 of 20

“Always consider the good in others.”

Never their faults and failings.

15 of 20

“Be fearless.”

As Franklin Roosevelt said, the only thing to fear is fear itself. It is our greatest enemy, it is crippling and debilitating.

16 of 20

“Be assured that, with God, all things are possible.”

As this faith is like unshakeable rock in the stormy seas of our lives.

17 of 20

“Learn to walk with God today and don’t worry about tomorrow”

Anxiety will not remove tomorrow’s sorrow, but will rob today of its strength.

18 of 20

“Realize that success is not to be measured by money or material things.”

Happiness arises from our internal state.

19 of 20

“Develop a healthy sense of humor.”

Laugh with others, never at others.

20 of 20

“Keep on thinking God all the time.”

This is easy while one is enjoying the ride, but should also persist when the going gets tough.

Dada urges all to follow this 20th secret, even though we may forego all the 19.
