Happiness Hack #53 Find Patience

Find patience for all the things you can’t control. Your thoughts, your actions, your reactions, and your happiness are always within your control. Everything outside of you is not. Sometimes you have to grin and bear it and sometimes you just have to laugh. But you don’t have to become a victim and succumb to the stress of life’s chaos that is outside of your control. The Serenity Prayer sums it up well:


Serenity Prayer

God grant me the serenity

to accept the things I cannot change;

courage to change the things I can;

and wisdom to know the difference.


Find the fun and laughter not only in the good times but also in your mishaps and you will be happier.

My Passion is helping people become successful and happy. I have found that many people want to be successful but just don’t know how. More importantly, people want to be successful because they feel that reaching some success pinnacle will result in them becoming happy. The research and my experience has shown that just the opposite is the case. Success does not lead to happiness. Happiness leads to success.

Why You Shouldn’t Procrastinate Happiness

Guest Blog by Stephanie Landrum

“I procrastinate my happiness.”  There, I said it.

It’s been sitting on my to-do list for over a month now: WRITE A BLOG POST ABOUT HAPPINESS

Some weeks I prioritize it to the top of the list…other weeks, it gets shifted down with the internal understanding that I will of course get to it soon…but for now there are other more pressing issues to attend to…such as grocery shopping…filling the car with gas…catching up on the latest TV shows….

The problem with my procrastination is that I’m pushing off so much more than a simple blog post.

What I’m pushing off is an opportunity to do the one thing I’ve always felt I’m somewhat good at…the thing that brings me personal pride and happiness…which is writing.

I have in my head this idea that writing will make me happy…but only if it’s “good” writing…and nothing good can come from 30 minutes here and 30 minutes there. No…I need a full weekend…spent alone in a hotel room with just me and my computer and a bottomless cup of coffee. But it’s not realistic…and thus, my happiness continues to be pushed to the back burner.

In an effort to work through my tendency to procrastinate….my goal is to begin implementing the Success Concept: Implement with Discipline.

Steps to Implement with Discipline
• Just start
• Schedule time each day
• Take baby steps
• Create habits
• There will be obstacles – plan for them.
• If you fail, start again!

My goal is to begin this process today, Wednesday 11/25, and report back within a month (here’s lookin at you Christmas Day ).

Let the battle against procrastination begin….
