Work becomes much easier and fun. In fact, your co-worker also becomes a fun person.
Bad thoughts tend to make you bad for anything. Therefore, it is very important for you to always focus and think positively on everything in your life. A saying goes, “Watch your ideas before saying them, pay attention to your words before they become an act, pay attention to your actions before they become a habit, pay attention to your habits before they become characters, pay attention to your character before they become your destiny.”
2. Don’t Carry Out Things Personal
You may be a sensitive person and instantly judge negatively on someone who does not respond well to you. In fact, it could be that person is having a busyness or a problem that seizes all his attention so as not to have the opportunity to respond as you expect. Such a direct judgment or a priori attitude is not very good. Better avoid or find out more before concluding. It is wrong to judge a person just to damage the relationship that you have intertwined with people near or around.

4. Use Ability and Perform Obligations
There is a small difference between the two thoughts: You feel you owe too much in everything or you are too afraid to ask for something that should be your right. Both of these things are just as bad so it is appropriate if you choose to always avoid these attitudes and thoughts. Know well about your abilities. Perform an obligation (job) according to that ability and get results that are comparable to what you do.
5. Get All Rights As You Should
