Find Happiness Within
Happiness is the only true measure of personal success. Making other people happy is the highest expression of success, but making other people happy is the highest expression of our personal life's success - but it's impossible if you're not happy within ..
Start each day with spiritual expectations .. expectations within your vey soul. If there's one "truth" about life - it's that it lives up to your expectations. Therefore, when you rise early in the morning and condition your first thoughts of the day .. you can live expectantly.
Once your thoughts are on track .. you can better plan and prioritize. Keep one "thought conditioner" in your mind and heart .. and on your lips .. pick one and let it become your guide for today .. The Word alone .. will move you closer to your goal and purpose in life.
Give a gift to everyone you meet - share today's "thought conditioner" .. in an email .. in your smile .. in a word of thanks or encouragement .. in a gesture of politeness, and never pass someone without leaving them with "that something" that your inner spirit tells you to do .. or share with a stranger - always know in your knower that God has a plan and a purpose. Since you can't read minds, you don't know the "why" behind the "what" that people do. Imputing a "positive" thought based on God's Word .. will always do good.
Let go .. and let God handle all the results - The big enemy of happiness is worry, stress, depression, feelings of being "unloved" or focusing on events that are out of one's control. Once you've taken a positive action, there is nothing more you can do.
End each day with a simple prayer of gratitude and thanksgiving .. just before you go to sleep .. repeat out loud to yourself .. today's "thought conditioner" and recall one positive thing that happened in your life today as a result of today's thought conditioner - It might be something as small as how God brought you a "smile" today or something as huge as a million dollar deal - either way, whatever it is, give God the thanks and praise for this day .. because it will never come again.
