We are bombarded by negativity and we are most
certainly influenced by others.

and maintain a positive attitude can achieve whatever
he wants in life.

We’ve been programmed to be like our parents, relatives and
teachers. Who were taught to be like their parents, relatives,

The problem with most people is that we’ve never
taken the time to set goals. We are not taught the
importance of setting goals. Parents, teachers and
relatives are not taught to set goals. They can only

to keep striving and keep taking the steps towards

will strengthen you.

will be accomplished should make everyday a joy.

of any goal.

the past. Thinking about what may or may not happen in the
future is worry.

people even into adulthood live by other people rules
and direction. They have never made the decision to
live there own truth, there own lives.

your truth means being honest with yourself and
taking responsibility for your own life. There are no
regrets later on in life when you can honestly say you
lived your life the way you wanted.

Being genuine, helping and sharing with others
empowers us as human beings. The only way to
reach this level is to truly have the other person’s best
interests at heart.

needs, will always have his own needs fulfilled. You
can only become prosperous by serving others.

We are taught wrongly early on in life that the goal is
to accumulate. Winning is all about the bigger
houses, bigger cars. What hogwash. . .
In a life where you enter without possessions and
leave without possessions, it’s all about the giving,
not the getting. It’s about being selfless. . .
Once you’ve reached a level where you can give of
yourself without fear. You are a real success!

concept of what happiness is to them.

people are happy washing the dishes. Some people
want to own the restaurant.
Take the time to know yourself. Happiness means
living on your own terms and being honest with
yourself. Live your life on purpose, Be Happy!
