RULE 16: Start cheering for other people’s victories. – Start noticing what you like about others and tell them.  Having an appreciation for how amazing the people around you are leads to good places – productive, fulfilling, peaceful places.  So be happy for those who are making progress.  Cheer for their victories.  Be thankful for their blessings, openly.  What goes around comes around, and sooner or later the people you’re cheering for will start cheering for you.

This is a good one to keep in mind. When we are feeling down or our own life seems to be in shambles, it is easy to envy others and what we perceive as their successes. But the truth is, we have no idea what trials they are going through in their lives or how much they had to struggle to achieve their dreams. My mom used to tell me to give flowers to the living and not to save them for the dead because the dead couldn't appreciate them. We need to show our appreciation and love every day to the people that we love. We need to let them know how proud we are of them.
