20 Nov The Happiness Machine (from Lou Tice)
And here’s another great happiness contribution from Lou Tice…
Winner’s Circle Network with Lou Tice – 11/19/07 – “The Happiness Machine”
What if you inherited a machine that was guaranteed to make you happy, but you had no idea how to operate it?
Now, if you are like most folks, you’d probably move heaven and earth until you figured out how it worked, wouldn’t you? The fact is, you were born with all the resources to make yourself very happy and successful. Unfortunately, you didn’t arrive with an instruction manual.
It has been left up to you to figure it out. Isn’t it strange, then, that most folks don’t even bother? They don’t read psychology, they don’t take classes or seminars on human behavior, and they don’t work with counselors, teachers or other professionals who could help them make the most of their potential.
Instead, they are content to bump along, not really expecting much out of themselves or of anyone else. Oh, they may go to a lot of trouble to learn to speak Spanish or to scuba dive, or even seek out the latest computer software. But they never take the time to learn about their own ‘software” – how their mind works.
Do you suppose this is because no one has ever told them that we are all programmed to achieve happiness and success? It is true. All we have to do is learn to operate the program. By that I mean educate ourselves, set goals, control our thoughts and get rid of glitches in the program that were put there by others who didn’t know better.
Sound simple? Well, it is. If you want to be happy, you can, but first you may need to do a little research.
