WEEK 1 JULY 2011
Everyday in my work, be it with executives or athletes, you encounter people stressed out dealing with the pressures to succeed in their world. To the outside world they are living the dream, but that is not often the case on the inside. How are you really travelling? No matter what your situation, or where you are at, happiness lies within each of us and is not intrinsic to the events we experience.
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.
If you want to be happy, be.
A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery while on a detour.
He is rich or poor according to what he is, not according to what he has.
Henry Ward Beecher
We are as happy as we decide to be. Acknowledge and focus on all the wonderful people and everything already surrounding you.
Yours in happiness
