Be Peaceful
Love and cherish peace. Be an ambassador of peace wherever you are. Don't create troubles where there are none, and advocate for peace in the midst of troubles. When there is peace, you can have rest of mind, concentrate in your business and make progress. Troubles take away peace, love, happiness, progress, unity and long life. 

Take absolute Control of your Tongue
Refrain from speaking lies and hurtful words. Let your yes be yes and your no be no. Be mindful of every word that comes out of your mouth because you shall account for them. Be straight forward and easy going. When someone forms the habit of telling lies, it is very difficult to stop. The person will always lie about everything. It takes more lies to cover up a lie. One of the reasons why I love telling the truth is that
you don't have to remember what you said earlier on so as not to contradict yourself; you just say things as they are.

Be Humble
Embrace humility and be free with everyone. No matter your position in the society, see "the less fortunate" around you as your fellow humans who has one or two ideas to offer. You don't know it all: you are limited in one aspect or another. If you are rich, don't see the poor around you as idiots, rather treat them as your fellow humans. Let there be no class of people you cannot relate with. That " wretched, low class, illitrate, nonentity, old fool" has the same human blood as you. He loves good things and feels pains just like you. We all are one. Sometimes, come low and do things that are not necessarily your duty. Don't allow pride into your precious life.

Believe in Yourself
You have no duplicate. You are wonderfully made. Don't try to be someone else: be yourself. If you don't believe in yourself, no one else will. Look inward, discover and develop your pontentials. Of all the billions of humans God created, you are just one. That miss A looks more beautiful than you does not make you inferior to her. That mr X is wealthier than mr Y does not make mr Y less human. I used to feel intimidated when I see people posses what I don't have, but not any more. Don't get intimidated by other people's outlook or achievements. Explore your potentials to bring out the best in you.

Accept People the Way they are
Everybody must not be like you: you need to understand that. If you decide to change everyone you meet, where will you stop? Don't you think it is unrealistic? Understand that each and everyone of us is uniquely created. All you need to do is to be adaptive and accomodating in order to be able to relate with people of diverse manners. I love to hear people say there is no kind of person they cannot stay with.

Mind your Business
Don't intrude into other people's affair. Let whatever lifestyle others have chosen to live be their headache, not yours. "Does she mean we shouldn't advise someone when it is obvious such a person is going wrong?", you may ask. No, not at all. Advice is a kind of suggestion because you still have to allow the person to adhere to your advice or do otherwise. You see the difference? There are some people that know all that are happening in their neighbour's household: they know who is feeding well or not, who has quality wears and drives expensive cars. Do you know why they keep track of all these things? It is so they can judge and tell why so and so happen in people's life. "Why won't his business crumble when he bought expensive car the other time just to make show of it, serves him right", they would say. God did not call us to live that way. Spend your time in only those things that will add value to who you are, and let other people worry about their weaknesses.

The infallible word of God said that peace makers shall be called sons of God, and blessed is the man that works not in the counsel of the ungodly, but pleases God in all his doings. Whatever such a man does shall prosper (Psalm 1:1-3).

Best Wishes
