Do nice things for others

Forget any attempt to control things
The truth of the matter is that you have no control over most of what happens in your life. Once you accept this, you will discover that you have no control over what life may bring, whether sadness or joy, but that you can only control your reaction. It is up to you to choose to happen, but to choose to be sad or happy is up to you.
