02 Feb Life coaching with happiness quotes
The Happiness Institute is about, quite obviously, happiness. Less obviously, The Happiness Institute is about offering the most effective life coaching options for those wanting to live a better life. We achieve this by using a range of strategies, including questioning and contemplation, but also by encouraging clients to learn from others.
With this in mind it always gives me great pleasure to share with you the range of inspirational and happiness inducing quotes I come across in my reading and learning. I hope you enjoy and find these helpful in your pursuit of happiness and in your self-life-coaaching efforts.
“Getters generally don’t get happiness; givers get it. You simply give to others a bit of yourself–a thoughtful act, a helpful idea, a word of appreciation, a lift over a rough spot, a sense of understanding, a timely suggestion. You take something out of your mind, garnished in kindness out of your heart, and put it into the other fellow’s mind and heart.” – Charles H. Burr
“If there were in the world today any large number of people who desired their own happiness more than they desired the unhappiness of others, we could have paradise in a few years.” – Baruch Spinoza (1632 – 1677)
“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you plant.” – Robert Louis Stevenson
William Jennings Bryan said, “Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice; it is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.”
