13. Pay Your Debts

Give back for everything you receive in some way. Do not wait to be asked for something in return. Just give automatically, and not just offer in hope they say, “it’s ok”.

Be grateful and respect those who are kind to you; similarly, be grateful for what you already have; never compare yourself with others who do not pay their debts and justify your selfish actions.

Show Appreciation For Everything

Give a gift to everyone you receive something from. Buy a bunch of chocolate bars for example, that you can give as a small token to anyone from whom you have received something; advice, help, anything of any sort, to show your immediate gratitude.

This will improve your sense of appreciation for everyone and everything, which results in stronger self-esteem.
