And I don't just mean mistaking super glue for a Visine bottle.
If you want to live a richer, more satisfying life, here are the commandments you need to follow. We got these from Woman's Day Magazine.
- NEVER treat friends better than family. One of the worst things you can do is to assume your bad behavior is OK around your family because they'll forgive you. According to psychotherapist Tina Tessina, you may get away with it longer than you would with friends, but it'll eat away at your relationship.
- NEVER be a know-it-all. There are few things more irritating than being around someone who always thinks they're right. According to Noah St. John, author of the book "Permission to Succeed," every relationship has two points of view. It doesn't work if one person always has to be right. So admit it when you don't know something, or when you've made a mistake.
- NEVER miss an opportunity to share a kind word. When someone says something nice to us, we tend to say something nice to the next person we see. According to Denise Beard, CEO of the Success Clinic of America, compliments almost always have a ripple effect. So give them whenever you have a chance.
- NEVER say never! Andy Andrews is the author of the book "The Traveler's Gift: Seven Decisions That Determine Personal Success." And 51 publishers rejected this book before one finally accepted it. It was then picked up by the Good Morning America book club and went on the make the New York Times best-seller list. Andrews says the game isn't over until YOU quit, so never say never. Sooner or later, things WILL happen.
