''To gain happiness, you must learn to enjoy that which you have. It is not how much you have. It is what we think about that which we have that produces happiness. In building a happy, contented life, you must give happiness to others. No one living unto him or herself will ever be contented with his or her lot. Your happiness is reflected upon...

A positive attitude opens you to the flow of life. If you are depressed, angry, and unhappy, no one wants to be around you. You literally push people and opportunities away. The wonderful thing is that you have the freedom to choose which attitude you want to adopt. There is no perfect way; each way is unique to each individual. Knowing that you can choose...

It’s time to remind yourself of a few key truths – right now and every morning hereafter: Today can be great, but only if you make it so. – Why do we often feel so powerless?

How might we make the world a better place? There are many ways. When someone asked Mother Teresa how he might help her, she simply said, "Come and see." We can simply observe what needs to be done, and do it as best we can. This might mean providing physical help (such as cleaning or giving a ride) or giving a smile, a listening ear,...

Most of us fall prey to what I call the Myth of More: the more you have, the better you'll feel. Our society's collective trance of wanting more and more stuff, or "bright, shiny objects," as my friend Stewart calls them, is based on a shared, insidious, and often unconscious belief: more toys, success, and money mean more happiness. But as these statistics show, it... Continue reading

Here's an interesting thought: You never find leopards or lions saying to themselves, "Well, I don't think I'll put myself out on this hunt. Why strain myself? What's the point? I nearly always make the kill and then what happens? Everyone tucks in and I don't even get a thank you. This time, I'll just coast. Someone else can do the work for a change.... Continue reading

One of the amazing things we have been given as humans is the unquenchable desire to have dreams of a better life, and the ability to establish goals to live out those dreams. Think of it: We can look deep within our hearts and dream of a better situation for ourselves and our families; dream of better financial lives and better emotional or physical lives;...

In times of adversity, I remember I am strong enough to meet the challenges of my life. I am equal to every situation, a match for every difficulty.

The Importance of Gratitude Gratitude wards off jealousy. When we're busy aaah-ing over what we have, we're not looking at the person across the street and wanting what she has. Jealousy has an enormous power to change us, but only if we let it. By focusing on gratitude, we shift the focus away from the things we may feel are missing in our lives. Gratitude...

I don't know about you, but I don't feel that it's my vehicle that is essential. I don't know about you, but I don't feel that it's my education that is essential. I don't think what is essential about me is my house or my car or my clothes. What is essential about me? Well, I think what is essential is that I live and... Continue reading

Rule 1: Let's fill our minds with thoughts of peace, courage, health, and hope, for "our life is what our thoughts make it." Rule 2: Let's never try to get even with our enemies, because if we do we will hurt ourselves far more than we hurt them. Let's do as General Eisenhower does: let's never waste a minute thinking about people we don't like.... Continue reading

Make these promises to yourself, and keep them. Repeat after me: “I promise…” “I will accept everything I am, and everything I am not.” – Self-worth comes from one thing: thinking that you are worthy. So be confident. Too many days are wasted comparing ourselves to others and wishing to be something we aren’t. Everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses, and it is only... Continue reading

"Mind your own business" is a good rule. It would probably be safe to say that more than half of the evil in the world is due to well meaning busybodies who just cannot refrain from interfering. Needless to say, such people never have harmony or success in their own lives, for it is an invariable rule that those who mind their neighbors' business, neglect... Continue reading

The direction we take in life is far more significant than the place ego parks us, in the present moment. For example, inquiring about what direction we’re headed is more valuable than focusing on how much we weigh or when we had our last cigarette. Making a commitment to change a self-sabotaging way of life is making a commitment to change direction, and then we... Continue reading

Whenever you fall, pick something up. ~ Oswald Avery If you ask me about my life, and ask if I have regrets, I would be pretty quick to acknowledge that I don't have regrets. I've grown to be OK with "me." Don't be fooled by my answer though -- I have made plenty of mistakes! I've been reckless and thoughtless, silly and some other unflattering... Continue reading
