Even in uncertain times, it’s always important to keep things in perspective. True wealth is the ability to fully experience life. – Henry David Thoreau You are alive. You are able to see the sunrise and the sunset. You are able to hear birds sing and waves crash. You can walk outside and feel the breeze through your hair and the sun’s warmth on your skin. You have tasted the sweetness of chocolate cake. You didn’t go to sleep hungry last night. You awoke this morning with a roof over your head. You had a choice of what clothes to wear. You haven’t feared for your life today. You have over ..read more

(NOTE: This is an excerpt from “1,000 Little Things Happy, Successful People Do Differently”.) She rarely makes eye contact. Instead, she looks down at the ground. Because the ground is safer. Because unlike people, it expects nothing in return. The ground just accepts her for who she is. As she sits at the bar next to me, she stares down at her vodka tonic, and then the ground, and then her vodka tonic. “Most people don’t get me,” she says. “They ask me questions like, ‘What’s your problem?’ or ‘Were you mistreated as a child?’ But I never respond. Because I don’t feel like explaining myse ..read more

Learn to love yourself first, instead of loving the idea of other people loving you. “Today I lost the respect of a few people I love, and the desire to kill myself, when I finally took your advice and told everyone the truth about who I really am and what I’ve decided to do with my life.  In a nutshell, I’ve chosen to love and honor myself, instead of convincing others to do it for me every day.” Those are lines right out of a live chat session I had this morning with a longtime reader and new course member of ours.  Although this person asked to remain anonymous, they gave me pe ..read more

Where you ultimately end up is dependent on your daily attitude and response. This morning one of our coaching clients, Monica—a recovering victim of a fairly recent and debilitating car accident—was smiling from ear to ear the minute our FaceTime coaching session began. “What has you in such good spirits today?” I asked her. “I’m thinking differently about things…about how lucky I am to be alive,” she replied. “I thought the injuries I sustained in that accident last year signified the end of life as I know it, but now I realize they signify the beginning.” All details aside, Monica decide ..read more

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” —Mae West This morning a close neighborhood friend, Alison, passed away far too early. While Angel and I have spent most of the day grieving, I’ve also spent this past hour thinking about the fact that our lives are often much shorter than we expect, and that we need to do some pretty darn hard things to maximize our very limited time. Alison strongly believed in doing the hard yet necessary things in life—we talked about this topic on several occasions, and she never backed down from a challenge. So today, I want to reflect on t ..read more

(NOTE: This post is a direct excerpt from the Self-Love & Self-Worth section of our newest book, “1000 Little Habits of Happy, Successful Relationships“.) Be OK with walking away. Rejection teaches you how to reject what’s not right for you. As you look back on your life, you will realize that many of the times you thought you were being rejected by someone or from something you wanted, you were in fact being redirected to someone or something you needed. Seeing this when you’re in the midst of feeling rejected, however, is quite tough. I know because I’ve been there. As soon as someone ..read more

Oftentimes the hardest part of the journey is simply believing you’re worthy of the trip.

Because it’s lessons like these that ultimately make our lives beautiful, by showing us how to thrive even through the toughest of times… 1. Happiness doesn’t start with a relationship, a vacation, a job, or money. It starts with your thinking and what you tell yourself every day.

All the world is full of suffering. It is also full of overcoming. — Helen Keller Character and wisdom are sculpted over time. They come with loss, lessons, and triumphs. They come after doubts, second guesses, and exploring unknowns. If there were a definitive path to happiness and success, everyone would be on it.
