Our Quest For Happiness and Fulfillment

Life is a dream
Staff member
Nearly all of us - regardless of social status, wealth, age, gender, race,
culture, et cetera - tell ourselves that I could be really happy if only...
What is it Health Money Power Intelligence Spirituality Will these things
really make you happy You've heard it before but I'm telling you again -
nothing will bring you happiness if you're not already happy. Sounds like a
load of hooey and in some respects, it is. But almost always what we
consider a solution to our unhappiness is only a quick fix. The problem is
still there. The person that wins the lottery is elated but soon goes back
into debt (nearly one third of lottery winners eventually file for
bankruptcy - New York Post, 1997). The person that loses 50 pounds on a fad
diet soon regains the weight. The person that rises in power loses friends
and finds happiness only in self-delusion. There's exceptions, of course,
and maybe you're one of those exceptions. Or maybe not.

What is it you most desire Why are you in such need Consider a desire for
money. Are you living within your means Are you using credit cards to pay
bills or buy food Those are problems that might persist even if you suddenly
fell into a fortune. Are you doing fulfilling work Is there something you
desire that requires a great deal of money, like travel or a house Those are
legitimate reasons to want a lot of money but what are you doing about it
Have you researched inexpensive travel, like stand-by or courier services
Have you pursued your dream job

When you think of your needs, what do you do Make wishes to an invisible
genie Light candles and cast spells Wish upon a star Pray Scream out to the
aliens Consider the 6 billion people that live on earth. What makes you more
deserving of a free ride that any of them Why do you plead to the sky but
take no action Chances are, you're over-whelmed and confused. Your problems
seem insurmountable and inaction feels better than the thought of taking
action. The hardest thing is MOTIVATION

Think about what you want and why you want it. Ask yourself how it will
benefit you, benefit others, what harm it might do, and how much effort it
will take. Prioritize your goals according to the most rewarding and get
busy achieving them. With time, dedication, and motivation, you can be
healthier, smarter, wealthier.

We look at great people - people who have, through merits of intelligence,
creativity and talent, made a mark on history and our lives - and we marvel.
Some of us shrug, accepting our lot in life as an unfortunate accident of
birth. Others aspire but give up too soon, comparing themselves to their
heroes and finding themselves far from being as great. It's true that we
can't all be Einsteins but we can be more than what we are. We can be
stronger, faster, achieve a greater aesthetic ideal, richer, more confident,
and, yes, even smarter. Few of us use our brains to its full potential. We
live our lives as if in a dream. But we can wake up. You only need to want
it enough to make an effort.
