What I Believe

Lately I’ve been giving my personal mission statement (sorry for the cliché) a bit of thought, and this is what I’ve come up with:

  1. Life is a game.
  2. Happiness is a choice.
  3. We have power.

“Life is a game,” to me, means that we chose our path and our meaning–no one chooses it for us.

“Happiness is a choice” means that we have the ability to change our thoughts and internal dialogue for the better.

“We have power” means that our ability to control our lives is far greater than any of us realize.

And all three statements together make, I think, a very good foundational philosophy. And that’s what I want to bring to this blog every day.

I hope it happens.

I know way, way too many people that aren’t happy.

  1. Couldn’t agree more! Once we realize that we are in charge and make an effort at overcoming our mostly unfounded fears and anxieties, we are one step closer to true happiness.

    1. No, there are no shoulds and shouldn’ts! You shouldn’t force anything!! Read my book “Happiness is the Truth.” It talks about pursuing what fulfills you–and who cares about what anyone else is doing or believing!
