- Right View - See things as they are. Know that your current situation and mood is not permanent.
- Right Intention - Give up selfish thoughts. Wish happiness for all.
- Right Speech - Watch what you say. Avoid gossip and lying. Always aim to upbuild with your words.
- Right Action - Watch what you do. Stealing, harming others intentionally*, harming yourself, and sexual misconduct** are not proper.
- Right Livelihood - We need money to survive. However, make sure that your occupation or the company you work for does not violate the other parts of the path.
- Right Effort - Use your will to strengthen good thoughts and release bad ones.
- Right Mindfulness - Pay attention to what's happening right NOW. How often do we multitask?
- Right Concentration - Pay attention to an object or thought and keep it there. Hard, isn't it? Meditation will help strengthen your concentration muscles.
*Some include harming animals as violating Right Action and are vegetarians. I believe this is a conscience and health matter. There is no Deity in Buddhism to condemn you to hell or some other tortuous place if you eat meat. I believe in humane killings of animals for food. I do not support hunting animals for sport.
**Sexual misconduct is not defined in Buddhism at least not that I can tell. Your personal values will come into play here. For example if you are in a monogamous relationship (gender unimportant), having another sex partner may be misconduct. If you are in a polygamous relationship, it may not be.
