Yes, we all need money to survive and pay our bills. Still, people reward themselves lacking physical and mental wellness for going high to earn money and forget their life's fundamental rule, which is to live happily. Use money, but dont let it use you.

We often choose the wrong people in our teens and sometimes in the 20s. Though we stuck with the wrong ones and did some unbelievable stuff. However, it doesn't matter until we find out their intentions for us or their deeds. 
A mature human is always there for you when you need them, they can even help you figure out negatives in you to change back into normal ones.
I met very few of them and they are my closest friends now.

3. An optimistic thinking

Your $100 burned and smoked away, what will you do?
Scream! Anger! Rushing everyone coming in front of you!
Some will burn another one and some will feel bad. And there is a person who sees it, recognizes it and learns to never let this happen. He stays positive even in this situation.
Optimism is defined as finding positive lessons and meanings even in the worst situation and also finding ways to get out of it with calmness and mindfulness.

I wanted to be perfect until I found out that I don't need perfectionism in my life. I am good at my work, skills and even loving my family and friends.
Your boss wants perfection in that project just because you work hard but he also knows that it can't be perfect, even though he will force you to do so. 
If you find perfection geeks, stay away from them or if you are one of these, be kind, not everyone has similar minds.

5. Accepting flaws with gratitude - no comparison

One day, I compared out of boundaries, then I realized what I am doing is wrong because I was putting myself down from those people who don't even know about it. And seriously my lifestyle, my thought process and my aggression towards earning money have drastically changed. What the cluster thinks around me now is how can I be so calm about criticisms. Well, the desired reason is I don't care. I have everything that I WANT and I feel grateful for it. 
Even I have some flaws but with them I am complete. So I am the happiest person in the world.

Offices are not good places to do that but think for a minute that it matters most to keep that child alive inside you. I found numerous people until now. Where one side some are just living meat. They don't know the happiness and value of life, so they are mostly seen in anxiety. While on the other hand, very few people are there who want to live in the moment, doing adorable things, using their charm in front of the mirror, meeting new people and learning new things, having fun, fooling and goofing around with friends, etc. 

You can see there is a lot of difference and yes I am the second one who is so much happier with people similar to me. I even have introverts on my list and believe me they are totally different when they know you and get comfortable.
