Measuring Success with Happiness
Very few people understand the concept of happiness. It is hard to grasp the truth of the physical law that enables one to live happily every day. Happiness is not an emotional phantom floating in and out of your life. Happiness is a choice like so many other things. Happiness is the end result of certain thoughts and activities which actually bring about chemical reaction in the body. That resulting action is a euphoria that is totally controllable by the individual.
It's been said that if you laugh for seven seconds each morning upon waking that excitement has begun to flow through the bloodstream. You feel different and are enthusiastic for the day and alert to its possibilities.
Laughter is an outward expression of enthusiasm and enthusiasm moves the world. Laughter throughout the day whether alone or with others can draw people to you because they see laughter in your heart. People follow the enthusiastic anywhere. Smiling can be a calling card. One great habit to get into is smiling while you talk. A smile has the power to forge bonds, break ice and calm storms.
Just because of your smile people will choose to further your cause and follow your leadership. Always smile first. That display of good attitude will tell others what you expect in return. When you choose to smile you become the master of your emotions. Despair, discouragement, frustration and fear will always wither when confronted by a smile.
Happiness comes from a grateful heart. It is impossible for depression to take seed in a thankful heart. Don't be seen as greedy, unappreciative and disrespectful. Be thankful for sight, sound and breath and anything beyond that is abundance and give thanks for that.
