Being happy can feel like a chore, especially when you're depressed, suffering from anxiety or stressed from life drama. Yet we keep trying, reaching, pining for that golden nugget to help us through the rough patches.
The truth about happiness is that it’s not a destination. It’s an opportunity to be present and practice reaching joy in the moment.

When we feel afraid, there is a chemical release of cortisol produced in our brains. This cortisol release eliminates our creative ability as well as focuses all it’s energy on avoiding the problem. As a result our capability to overcome the problem is significantly diminished.
On the other hand, when we take courage and show bravery a different chemical reaction takes place. Dopamine "the happy feeling" is thus produced and our capability to be ...
3 ways to use the power of gratitude in your life:
1. Be grateful for everything you have received in your life (past).
2. Be grateful for everything you are receiving in your life (present).
3. Be grateful for what you want in your life, as though you have already received it (future).
It's important to pay attention to how you feel about what is happening around you. Because how you feel, whether good or bad, is giving off a frequency and will determine the people, events and circumstances that you're bringing into your life.
To change anything - whether it's the circumstances of money, health, relationships or any subject whatsoever - you have to change the way you feel!
Even if you just give 51% good thoughts and feelings, you've tipped the scales of your life. Every day is an opportunity for a new life. Every day you stand at the tipping point of your life. And on any one day you can change the future - through the way that you feel.
Mind is the Master–power that molds and makes, and Man is Mind, and ever more he takes the Tool of Thought, and shaping what he wills, brings forth a thousand joys, a thousand ills–He thinks in secret and it comes to pass; Environment is but his looking-glass.
This poem illustrates a powerful idea that your mind is molding and shaping your life experience. One example of this, would be the example of buying a new car, then the next day you see similar cars all over the place. What was it that caused this invasion of cars?
What shifted within you that caused you to see all those cars? How many things in your life, right now, could you be blind to because of a poor mentality? Discovering this truth truly unlocks the keys to personal success.
The question then becomes, how can I actively cultivate the correct beliefs that will allow me to see the opportunities that I may be blind to? The story of the man who found an extra 4000 dollars a month illustrates this quite beautifully. There was a man that we will call Jared. Jared wanted to be wealthy. He wanted to generate extra income, and to eliminate all of his debts as quickly as possible.
His current belief system blinded him to money making opportunities. All he could see at the end of the month was 400 dollars to implement his debt elimination plan. He was talking to his wise friend about his goals and about the fact that his plans were moving painfully slow.
His friend, who had a wonderfully cultivated mind, asked him why not do 4000 dollars a month towards paying off your debts? This was a big shock to Jared’s current belief system, and he looked at his friend like he was crazy. Jared’s friend invited him to believe in the unbelievable. He told Jared to suspend all disbelief for at least three weeks. Jared agreed to this, and what happened next seemed like magic. Money making ideas began to flood Jared’s mind.
Within 12 weeks, Jared had found a way to accomplish his goal of making an extra 4000 dollars a month. This mind expanding exercise allowed Jared to take his success to the next level. What are the steps that will allow you to unleash this amazing power of your mind? You can find some great training's on how to do this at Quantum Money Meditations.com. Her are a few steps to help you get started:
1. Choose a goal that right now you just do not believe
2. Choose to suspend your disbelief on this goal for at least 3 weeks
3. Listen and take action on the ideas that come to you
These steps are simple and powerful. You can easily reprogram your mind starting now!

Perspective, the way we see our world.
So why is our perspective a big deal? Where does our perspective come from? What influences our perspective? Can our perspective be changed?
Perspective can be a big deal in even minor situations as well as big ones. If you get a flat tire on the way to work, do you see it as bad luck, maybe think to yourself, why does this happen to me, and let it effect your day? If a business idea doesn't go the way you want, do you see it as an opportunity to refocus and get you looking at the bigger picture that leads to a different direction that leads to even bigger success?
Our perspective comes from our core beliefs. These core beliefs are developed from our childhood upbringing, past experiences, culture, faith, and even current circumstances.
These core beliefs are at a subconscious level. These subconscious beliefs create this filter that we see the world through called perspective. This filter is at a conscious level. The conscious mind (the thinking part) acts as the guard to the gate (the subconscious). It is only going to allow things past it that agree with our beliefs or twist things to fit our beliefs. This is why many people get into arguments. This is also why we are sometimes misunderstood, we say one thing and it gets taken differently than we meant it.
One big influence on our perspective is emotion. An example would be when someone says something or something happens that gets us upset, our perspective starts to narrow. Also, this emotion tints our perspective. Now the way we see the world (our perspective) is tinted by this emotion. So if the emotion we are feeling is anger, then everything we see now has a tint of anger to it. We are no longer seeing truth. What kind of choices and decisions can we make with an anger tinted perspective?
When we are not in control of our energy, and we allow these automatic emotional reactions to happen it can be very draining. Think back to a time when you where very emotional for a period of time during the day. Did you feel drained at the end of that day? How about when someone did or said something that got you stirred up and you kept thinking about it the rest of the day, or even longer. We are not in control of our energy at these times and in fact are giving our energy away.
This is why we clear. The limiting beliefs that we hold at a subconscious level is where these reaction based emotions come from. So we learn tools to clear the negative energy (emotion) to maintain a clearer, bigger perspective that allows us to be much more aware.
There are many clearing techniques that we can use to disassociate, or discharge the negative energy and reduce or eliminates the automatic emotional reactions that cloud our perspective. EFT, TAT, NLP, Ho’ oponopono, just to name a few. But it is also very effective to catch the thoughts or triggers before the emotion takes hold. Recognize the thoughts or triggers as they happen for what they are so that we become the observer. This now allows us to have a choice of how to respond. When this is done on a repetitive basis it becomes a habit. Once it becomes a habit, then what? Habits become part of who we are. When being in control of our energy becomes a habit we no longer have to think about it. Now that we are in control of our energy and are able to maintain a clear perspective, choices and decisions can be made with more confidence.
Consistency becomes the key word here. This is where most people fall short. We need to do something consistently long enough that it becomes habit. So lets all start working on creating the habits that will get us in control of our energy and of our life.
