40 life lessons that I learned for 40 years

Everything that happens in our lives, helps to come to a simple, but quite important conclusions

The man who discovered these truths, just turned 40 years old. His life is filled with a variety of experiences - a disease that seemed fatal, self-healing, love, and loss of loved ones, the hard work - all that happened to him, helped to come to a simple but important conclusions. The last one he recorded recently in the fortieth year of his life.

9. "The one whom you are at work, with friends, for a family dinner - this is one and the same person»
My coach told me often that you can not hang around aimlessly on the field, and expect that during the game you will show good game. You have to be at the same level all the time. It is why many athletes are quite violent in real life? Because they are taught to play tough.

Thanks - a feature that is present in all religions. It's really a great power! Always be grateful for what you have.

Focus on happiness, then there will be enough money, not vice versa.

I became more pronounced feel - if I am happy, that happiness comes almost to ecstasy when I eat favorite foods - they seem tastier than before. It's like Back to the old black and white TV set with a new one with more channels and HD quality.
