Smiling puts someone in a better mood and makes you feel confident. A smile works as an energy booster and a stress reliever at the same time. Even pretending to smile will make you feel better and in a better mood than not smiling at all.

Many people often live a life that others want to see, but never pursue happiness for themselves. It is important to remember that happiness cannot be achieved by satisfying someone else’s vision for life.

People will come and go in life. When you think that you have met a good friend, the perfect business partner, or a true love that will accompany you until the end of your life, you may end up disappointed.

If you are missing a relationship in life, let it go and realize that relationships are often temporary. If there is a beginning then there must be an end too. There will be a farewell if there is a meeting.

The promises above will bring a positive effect in your life. However, only if you promise you intend to keep it in life. Ready?
