01 Jul Jack Canfield on happiness
True happiness is not the result of some external condition like having lots of money. We all know people who are rich and unhappy. The key to happiness is to stop focusing on what you don”t have, and focus more on what you do have. The fastest way to do that is to do a daily gratitude exercise. I suggest you do it in the morning before you begin or leave for work. Take five minutes and write a list of what you already have that you are grateful for-good weather, your car, a roof over your head, a loving wife, good health, your cat, your best friend, worldwide telephone service, the Internet, your television and stereo system, your iPod, a comfortable bed, and so on. There is always so much more to be grateful for in life than there is to be upset about.
