Some Good Advice

This came in one of those lovely forwards where if you send it to 15 people, great things will happen to you, and if you don't send it, bad things will happen to you. Well, I'm not sending it to anyone, but I will post it here because I do agree with the advice (I've edited it a bit so it makes more sense to me), so hopefully it will balance out, and nothing will happen to me :-D

1: Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

2: Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.

3: Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you

4: When you say, "I love you," mean it

5: When you say, "I'm sorry," look the person in the eye.

6: Be engaged at least six months before you get married.

7: Believe in love at first sight.

8: Never laugh at anyone's dream. People who don't have dreams don't have much.

9: Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.

10: In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

11: Don't judge people by their relatives, but judge them on how they treat their relatives.

12: Be slow to talk, but quick to listen/think.

13: When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, "Why do you want to know?"

14: Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

15: Say "bless you" when you hear someone sneeze.

16: When you lose, don't lose the lesson

17: Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and responsibility for all your actions.

18: Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

19: When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

20: Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

21: Spend some time alone.
