Ten Rules of Happiness

Return to Main Margie's Messages Home Page (Full List of Topics)

President David O. McKay   

1.  Develop yourself by self-discipline.

2.  Joy comes through creation--sorrow through destruction. Every living thing can grow;  use the world wisely to realize soul growth.

3.  Do things which are hard to do.

4.  Entertain up-building thoughts. What you think about when you do not  have to think shows what you really are.

5.  Do your best this hour and you will do better the next.

6.  Be true to those who trust you.

7.  Pray for those things such as wisdom, courage, and a kind heart.

8.  Give heed to God's message through inspiration.  If self-indulgence, jealousy, avarice or worry have deadened your response, pray to the Lord to wipe out these impediments.

9.  True friends enrich life.  If you would have friends, be one.

10.  Faith is the foundation of all things, including happiness.
