43. Compete with yourself not others. Stop looking at others achievements, you can't control that. Concentrate on your own achievements, get better and better at what you do by having high standards. 
44. Stop killing time watching TV. Television isn't what it used to be back in the 80's or even 90's. There are plenty of channels today to keep a non-stop zapping that really kills your time. If it kills your time, stop doing it.
45. Put your ego aside and get things done. Stay humble and do your work. Egotistic feelings can blind you from true happiness and fulfillment. 
46. Choose your friendships wisely. It's better to have a few good friends than a huge amount of people that do you no good. Check your contact list of your phone, who are the people you can really count on? Those are your true friends, treasure them.  
47. Get inspired by watching great movies and documentaries. Make your own selection, don't believe the hype and watch everything they tell you too. Create your own list of movies and documentaries that can really inspire your life. 
48. Avoid attachment to people and things. Just let go from people and materialistic things you're just depending on them. Stop craving them. Free yourself from this feeling and ride your own path. 
49. Be grateful for what you have. People get frustrated thinking their life is empty when they already have what they need. Treasure the simple things like food, job, house, kids, family, imagination, creativity, academic achievements and so on. 
50. Love your life. From your activities, friends, relationships, family, children. Let people know your feelings by taking action according to them. Just live your live to the fullest.
