While tackling stressful situations of day-to-day life we often forget to appreciate the little things that really matter. We read so many inspiring stories yet sometimes fail to be grateful.
Industrialist Harsh Goenka recently shared a list of valuable tips where he mentioned eight “simple tips” that are quite essential to bring a positive change in life, reports India Today. Have a look:
Some simple tips:

Harsh Goenka has often shared some unique stories such as a man turning dough into ‘chadar roti’ or an autowala changing a tyre ‘James Bond’ style on his Twitter. However, we really appreciate and agree with his personal thoughts. Being understanding and appreciative in all walks of life never really hurts. Right?
