Those who look to him are radiant.
Robert Blondin interviewed more than 600 people in numerous nations. He asked one question: “What makes people happy?”
The answers were pretty much the same everywhere.
- People are happy because they are in control of their attitudes.
- People are happy because they are absorbed in their families, friends, work, and causes they believe in.
- People are happy because they are a part of something bigger than themselves.
- People are happy because of who they are, not because of what they have.
- People are happy because of inner values, not because of outer circumstances.
Outer circumstances—good or bad—are temporary. Whether you’re a dishwasher or head honcho, it’s just a temporary job. Whether you live in a shack or a mansion, it’s just temporary housing. Get that straight, and you won’t be a victim of circumstances.
Don’t let circumstances that you don’t
control dictate your happiness.
