Being happy can be hard work sometimes. It is like maintaining a nice home - you’ve got to hang on to your treasures and throw out the garbage. Being happy requires looking for the good things. One person sees the beautiful view and the other sees the dirty window. Choose what you see and what you think.
Do you recall watching “boy meet girl” movies? Titanic would be a famous example. As the boy and girl struggle through thick and thin, you hoped and prayed the whole time that everything would work out even in the outcome of imminent doom. We gulped and dried our tears as the curtains came down.
We cry at these movies because at our deepest level, we care.
We hurt. There is an inner core in all of us which is simply beautiful. When we see the plight of the starving around the globe on t.v., we ache for them. We all care. Accept that you have these capacities to love and emphatise and be HUMAN .
Recognise your own worth and constantly remind yourself that you deserved to be treated well!
Everything has ups and downs - nothing travels in straight lines. This applies to your own progress in any project. Keep your eye on your target, keep putting in the effort and you reach your target despite the ups and downs.
Successful people realise that they reach their goals by continuously correcting . We get off course, correct , and get back on course. Ships do it. Rockets and missiles do it.
