Whether or not you believe Jesus Christ was the savior, there is no disputing the fact that he transformed humanity’s thinking and behavior. Here are the top 10 tips on living a happy and successful life straight from lips of the one and only, Jesus Christ:

  1. “Love your neighbor as yourself. The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments.” — Matthew 22:36-40: If you want to succeed you must treat others as you would want them to treat you. When you treat others with dignity and respect you will attract the right people to your cause, whatever that might be. No one succeeds alone. You cannot find apostles to your cause by treating others poorly.
  2. “Then Peter approaching asked him, ‘Lord, if my brother sins against me, how often must I forgive him? As many as seven times?’ Jesus answered, ‘I say to you, not seven times but seventy-seven times.’” — Matthew 18:21-22: Anger is the most costly negative emotion. When we forgive others for their misdeeds against us we shift our emotional state from negative to positive. Successful people have a positive mental outlook.
  3. “Whoever will not receive you or listen to your words—go outside that house or town and shake the dust from your feet.” — Matthew 10:14: Successful people associate with other success-minded people. It is the law of association at work. Only associate with those who share your positive thinking and beliefs.
  4. “Just so, every good tree bears good fruit, and a rotten tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a rotten tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire. So by their fruits you will know them.” — Matthew 7:17-20: Successful people do work that they love and, as a result, they excel at what they do. They produce great work.
  5. “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many. How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few.” — Matthew 7:13-14: Successful people pursue their own path, their own dreams and their own goals. They put their ladder on their own wall. Oftentimes, the path they take is not the one being taken by everyone else. Successful people blaze new trails. They don’t follow the herd.
  6. “He takes away every branch in me that does not bear fruit, and everyone that does he prunes so that it bears more fruit.” — John 15:2: Successful people eliminate their bad habits and focus on their good habits, inner talents and their strengths.
  7. “Take care not to perform righteous deeds in order that people may see them; otherwise, you will have no recompense from your heavenly Father. When you give alms, do not blow a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets to win the praise of others. Amen, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right is doing, so that your almsgiving may be secret. And your Father who sees in secret will repay you.” — Matthew 6:1-4: Successful people give first without any expectation of benefiting. Eventually, life rewards those who put the needs and wants of others ahead of their own.
  8. “For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.” — Matthew 6:21: Successful people pursue work they are passionate about. Wealth is a byproduct of of doing work that you love.
  9. “Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are not you more important than they? Can any of you by worrying add a single moment to your life-span? Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself.” — Matthew 6:25-27,34: Worry is a negative emotion. It creates stress and a negative mental outlook. Negativity blinds you to the opportunities all around you. It limits your focus and your creativity. Successful people focus on controlling only that which they control. They don’t worry about things that are outside their control.
  10. “And so I tell you, keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened.” – Matthew 7, 7: Successful people make a habit of asking for what they want and need.
