11. Choose your background music wisely.
12. Stick close to happy people. Well-being is contagious.

Yes to both!

Positive people and the “right” music are uplifting. Negative people and the “wrong” music can bring us down, down, down.

It’s a sin not to take these points of advice to heart ;p

So easy in theory . . . yet some find it difficult to apply in practice.

It’s gets easier over time.

We see our thoughts for what they are . . . and learn to manipulate them to our advantage.

13. Choose your friends wisely. Keep negative people at arms length.

14. Follow your bliss

Such a great list; I find it’s the simplest things that require the most reminders. Thank you for this.

So true.

When we are absolutely determined to enjoy what we do (by following our bliss), we win. No matter what happens, we win.
