ARISE ENJOY HAPPINESS
1To learn to walk, we must risk falling over.To make a dollar, we must risk losing it.In loving and caring, we risk breaking our hearts.Getting a job is a risk. Crossing the road is a risk. Eating in the restaurant is a risk. Starting a family is a risk.Life is a risk. Winners take more risk than losers. That is why they win so much. Necessarily then, winners lose more than losers, but they are playing so often that their wins add up. We have a choice between living and merely existing.COMPLIMENTSEver notice how good you feel when you give a compliment?Even if people are awkward in receiving them, they appreciate them.When we make it a habit to GIVE genuine compliments, well always be looking out for the good in people.3Two Happiness TrapsWe postpone our happiness - Ill be happy when....( When the house is paid off, when we go to Phuket, Bali, or Hawaii, when I find a better job...)We look back to the past and say, If I have known today was going to be so awful, I would have been happy yesterday.HAPPINESS is not a when - Happiness is a now.
4Work!Lots of people will tell you , Ill be happier if my job was easier. But when work gets easier, they quit, and look for another challenge.The truth is, we love challenge. Lets stop kidding ourselves! Nearly every job is repetitious.Often, the secret to enjoying a job is not to change your job but to change your attitude.
5Law of ProgressEverything has ups and downs - nothing travels in straight lines. This applies to your own progress in any project. Keep your eye on your target, keep putting in the effort and you reach your target despite the ups and downs. Successful people realise that they reach their goals by continuously correcting. We get off course, correct, and get back on course. Ships do it. Rockets and missiles do it.Correct. Correct. Correct.
6The key to happiness is not that you never get upset, frustrated or irritated. It is how quickly you decide to snap out of it.
7Learning from ChildrenSpend time with children. Learn more about laughter, spontaneity, curiosity, acceptance, resilience, trust, determination, and your imagination.They are here to teach us!
8Happiness is not dependent on your circumstances or your bank balance.
Happiness is a daily decision.
