Quote of the day: Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

A joy­ful life is an indi­vid­ual cre­ation that can­not be copied from a recipe.

We can all have joy­ful lives if we choose to cre­ate them. What are you doing to cre­ate yours despite illness?

  1. We are in total con­trol of our hap­pi­ness and can’t rely on oth­ers to make our lives joy­ful. It’s up to each one of us to decide what is best for us; what makes us keep going and try­ing and hop­ing. For me, it’s my chil­drens smile as they greet me each day. To see those lov­ing smiles one more day, is enough to keep me going.

    Anoth­er type of smile that keeps me try­ing to do my best, is the smile of anoth­er hap­py cus­tomer. What can I do or make or cre­ate that will cause a smile to appear on anoth­er cus­tomers face; is the ques­tion I ask myself each day. Even when I feel that I just can’t go for anoth­er moment, the thought that I might make one more per­son in this big world hap­py, is enough to make me try harder.

    So I guess what I’m say­ing, is that oth­er’s hap­pi­ness is what cre­ates my joy­ful life!

  2. Often, we seem to think that we can copy our way into suc­cess but usu­al­ly we can’t. Man­age­ment books sug­gest that if we study oth­er suc­cess­ful com­pa­nies and close­ly copy what they seem to have done, we can achieve the same suc­cess. Books for per­son­al effec­tive­ness do the same. If we close­ly look at suc­cess­ful indi­vid­u­als we can copy their suc­cess and we’ll be suc­cess­ful too.
