The Choice of Happiness!

If you are in pursuit of happiness and don’t know how to find it, then look no further. To be truly happy, we have to make the choice! You can choose to be a winner even if you came in the last place. It’s your choice to make your emotions what you want them to be. Joy is not found in materials things but in how you look at the world. The world is made up of your thoughts! To be prosperous you have to be committed to it 100% or you’ll never find prosperity. The universe doesn’t care for us and the world isn’t perfect, but you can make the choice of what you want. Make that choice, The Choice of Happiness!

In order for you to win, you have to put in the work. You can’t win if you don’t do! It’s physically impossible! Winning isn’t easy by no means! Ask every winner and they’ll tell you it is tough! If you want to win at work or at school or win at playing a game, you’ll have to put in the work, mentally and physically!

Winning is a choice it isn’t the number one spot! Choose to be happy! Being number one is great, don’t get me wrong, but it’s not just about being on top. It’s about hiking the mountain. Finding happiness! It’s about going all in, persevering! Doing what you love even when you think there is no chance. Because there is a chance, you just have to keep going and you’ll find it! Wayne Gretzky said you miss one hundred percent of the shots you don’t take! So take the shot and shoot for your goals! That’s how you win!

You win just for doing! You win as long as you’re making things happen. You are the winner even if your business isn’t popping. Your business will pop eventually, just keep doing, just keep winning! Don’t let an opportunity slip away! Grab your vine and swing across the jungle to reach your goals. There is no straight line to success! It’s a zig-zag but as long as you’re moving, as long as you’re doing, you are a winner! Stand in the winner’s circle ever day of your life! It’s your choice of happiness!

Winning is about doing not about the outcome! Things work out best for the people who make the best out of how things work out! You are the winner, keep winning!

I see so many people losing themselves in their dreams of a better life. So lost that they do not live in a reality they want but live in a reality they are sold. The negative energy that surrounds their reality, keeps them scratching the surface for more. Because they are not getting what they really truly want, happiness, instead they are only getting bits and pieces and are left hungry for more.

People are sold the new phones and the new headsets and game systems every day. They are always saying if I just had this or if I just had that I would be happy. They don’t get it! Even when they do get this or they do get that they are only happy in the moment. That’s nice because tomorrow a new phone or a new headset or a new game system is released! They can be happy again! Happiness is not in material things it’s a choice and the choice is yours!

Guys, we want and want and want until we die! Then we want to live and we want to spend more time with our family. We want to be happy! It’s too late now! We want to put down the new phone or the game system. We want more out of life. We want to go back! We want to live! But we can’t because it’s too late! We’re Dead! You never know what you have until it’s gone and it’ll go quickly. I’m sure you’ve heard that many of times and still haven’t heard it at all! Clean out your ears and listen to what “your” world is telling you! Be happy, the choice is yours!

You get what you ask for so what do you want?

If you are not 100% committed to your business or whatever it is you are doing, don’t do it! It’s not worth your time! Time is valuable, it’s something you can’t buy and you can’t make any more of! So don’t waste it just be happy!

Let me give you an example of how fast time can go by. I know you have a phone and you’re probably reading this on your phone. Stop, look at what time it is right now! Got it! Okay, before you know it 5 to 10 minutes of your time will be gone and I do thank you for it. I am pleased that you’ve taken the time (valuable time) to read my little get right with yourself post. It makes me happy! Most people today, including yours truly, take time for granted and we must stop that! NOW! Re-evaluate our time. What is our time worth? What is your time worth? Is it worth your happiness?

We spend so much fucking time on social media and watching television or playing games that we lose track of it. Next thing we know we have to hit the sack because work comes early tomorrow or we remember we have kids. That’s right it’s time to show some love, that’s another valuable trait of ours which is for another time and another place. Right now, this moment in time we have to look back and see if where we are today is where we want to be tomorrow. The time is NOW! What’s it worth to you to be happy?

The Universe doesn’t care about your happiness!

Turns out, the universe doesn’t give a shit about you! It’s true! The universe doesn’t care if you fail at finding happiness! Guess what, though, it doesn’t care if you succeed either! We are only little specks of dirt on specks of dirt on specks of dirt! I could keep going but you get the idea! You aren’t shit! I mean it, you are worth something, to someone, or at least I hope you are!

You can do anything you set your mind to, and it could be great! It can be great! Just get up and go do it. Go be happy! Don’t take anything for granted! This little life of ours is great and we should be happy with just being alive. Never mind material things, they are great and all but, you are more important. Work on you, work for you!

It’s sad that we put a lot of effort into something that only brings us temporary joy. It’s sad that most of us don’t think about ourselves (our inner selves) until it’s too late. We can’t turn back the clock! Remember yesterday? Yeah, well it’s gone! Only a memory that we can keep! Break out of your shell and become the person you always wanted to be! The one you are too afraid to ask for permission to be! You don’t need permission from anybody to be you or to be happy!

I say fuck what everyone else thinks. They don’t have to live with you. They don’t have to walk in your shoes! You do and why not make that walk as comfortable as possible? Two things to remember today! Fuck what people think of you! Be the person you want to be! The universe doesn’t care! Johnny B. Truant taught me that! Happiness is waiting on you!

In a perfect world, everyone is happy and doing what they love. They wake up and pop out of bed without second thoughts of skipping work or feelings of dread! In a perfect world!

The reality we live in, I’m sorry to say isn’t so perfect. We don’t do what we love because we don’t know how! And yet, we know how to make other people money! We wake up and force ourselves out of bed to make other people money. We want to skip work every day but can’t because the money we make other people is going to pay us too. We dread it every day and yet we don’t do anything about it. Like we don’t know how to do anything about it! Not so perfect does that make you happy?

We could make money for ourselves! We could still work for someone while we’re building that empire we so dearly want! Motivating ourselves to wake up and pop out of bed because every free moment counts towards our future. The future we want! Make a life we don’t want to skip out of! Never dreading a moment of the rest of our lives because we get to do what we want. We get to be happy! Doesn’t sound so distant after all, that perfect world!

All that’s needed is to change the way we look at the world. Once we’ve done that the world as we know it will change. There is a perfect world if you want to create it. It starts with you and it’ll end where you want it to! The perfect world is The Choice of Happiness!
