If you would like the cliff’s notes version, here are the 8 steps dwindled down (we changed the language to PG, so that there are no profanities in this blog post, but if you want to read the R-rated version, click here:

1. Stop believing your BS – stop believing all the negative things you say about yourself, may it be you’re lazy, a coward or unlucky, that’s not true and deep down you know it! You are just using those negative traits as excuses for when something does not work out or when you fail at a task. “The more we stick to these scripts about who we are, the longer we live a fraction of the life we could be living. Let it go. Be who you are beneath the BS.”

2. Be happy now! – we as humans can choose to be happy, “instead of being angry or regretful about what we lack.” Being happy is a shift in perspective, you must choose to let the beauty of life seep in to yours.

3. Look at the stars – have you ever gone camping and looked up at the night sky? Star-gazing (actual stars, not celebrities) “won’t fix the economy. It won’t stop wars. It won’t give you flat abs, or better sex or even help you figure out your relationship and what you want to do with your life. But it’s important. It helps you remember that you and your problems are both infinitesimally small and conversely, that you are a piece of an amazing and vast universe.”

4. Let people in – humans are social being, you should tell those who you trust when you need help, when you’re feeling blue or depressed, even when you’re happy. Sharing truly is good for the soul. “Acknowledge that you care about them and let yourself feel it. Instead of doing that other thing we sometimes do, which is to play it cool and pretend we only care as much as the other person has admitted to caring, and only open up half way. Go all in — it’s worth it.

5. Stop with the crazy making – you must realize that life is full of obstacles, for every single person. The best way to deal with a situation that has been blown out of proportion not to taking things personally. When something happens, take a deep breath, count to 10 and reassess the situation.

6. Learn to apologize – “the ability to sincerely apologize — without ever interjecting the word “but” — is an essential skill for living around other human beings. If you are going to be around other people, eventually you will need to apologize. It’s an important practice!”

7. Practice gratitude – “gratitude is not a first world only virtue. Gratitude is what makes what we have enough. Gratitude is the most basic way to connect with that sense of being an integral part of the vastness of the universe, it’s that sense of wonder and humility, contrasted with celebrating our connection to all of life.”

8. Be kind – “kindness cost us nothing and pays exponential dividends. One of the biggest thing we can do in life is to extend love and kindness to other human beings, we can change the world for the better.”

Now that you have read through the 8 steps, don’t you feel better?
