Happiness is not in the getting. Happiness is in the becoming. Happiness is a universal quest. Happiness is a joy that comes as a result of positive activity.

The option of looking like you want to, instead of settling for what you have to look like. ~ Jim Rohn

Each person’s personal philosophy is like the set of a sail. If you want to trim a better sail, you don’t need a better economy. You know you can’t change the seasons; you’ve got to take them as they come. What can you change to make your life work better? You must start with your philosophy.

My income changed immediately. My whole life instantly took on a new look. The early results from making these philosophical changes felt so good that I never stopped the process from that day forward. ~ Jim Rohn
