You can have happiness without waiting for the next good thing to come along. And being happy is key to everything else you want, including health, success and great relationships.
When you decide to focus your brilliant mind on the good things about you and the world around you, you connect with your good heart. And when you have your heart and mind working together, you can accomplish virtually anything you decide to.
Your sense of joy will grow daily, as you become more and more skilled at the practice of gratitude, appreciation and optimism. You truly do have a brilliant mind...it is standard equipment in the human organism.
And when you master the ability to focus your attention on what is good, right and working in your life, you will be creating happiness on purpose, and...
You will be making maximum use of your brilliant mind to create excellent health, great relationships and lasting success.
Think about this for a minute. How hard is it for you to worry about problems and tasks that need to be done? It's not hard at all!
That's because the fear-based, problem-solving part of your brain runs on automatic without you having to even think about it. Worry is literally a no-brainer!
"When you count your blessings and focus on the miracles in your everyday life, you're using more brain capacity, and as a result, your mind and body become more fit, vibrant and healthy."
When you're happy you are more relaxed, and the more relaxed
you are, the better your blood flows. Increased blood flow sends more
oxygen to your brain, helping you make better decisions and think more clearly.
Finding the good in your past, present and future will require mental effort that is an excellent workout for your mind. Just as the effort to engage in physical exercise is good for you, the effort to create and maintain a positive attitude improves your mental fitness and agility.
Joy is a state of mind and body that literally sends a signal to your entire nervous system that (at least for the moment), all is well. That soothing, calming effect is good for every aspect of your existence.
When you're happy, you're more attractive and easy to be around. That's why your relationships get better when you have a positive mental attitude.
Your positive focus on uplifting and encouraging perspectives will raise your energy level and give you inspiration and enthusiasm for your professional and business initiatives.
And don't worry...you will not become naive and get ambushed by unexpected negative events. Your problem-solving, protective focus will continue to operate on automatic, keeping you safe without being overwhelmed by negativity.
