Don’t expect things to happen, that you didn’t bring about yourself, to make you happy or successful. Stop blaming others for your short-comings. Stop making excuses. Put more effort into your day. Spend more time making your spouse happy. Pay more attention to your employers needs to make them value you more. Think about your religion or values system every day. Tell your children that they are loved. It’s up to you to make it happen and no one else.
