ESSENTIALS FOR HAPPINESS
by: Brian Tracy
have a thousand different goals over the course of your lifetime, but
they all will fall into one of four basic categories. Everything you do
is an attempt to enhance the quality of your life in one or more of these
KEY TO HAPPINESS
The first category is your desire for happy relationships. You want to
love and be loved by others. You want to have a happy, harmonious home
life. You want to get along well with the people around you, and you want
to earn the respect of the people you respect. Your involvement in social
and community affairs results from your desire to have happy interactions
with others and to make a contribution to the society you live in.
The second category is your desire for interesting and challenging work.
You want to make a good living, of course, but more than that, you want
to really enjoy your occupation or profession. The very best times of
your life are when you are completely absorbed in your work.
The third category is your desire for financial independence. You want
to be free from worries about money. You want to have enough money in
the bank so that you can make decisions without counting your pennies.
You want to achieve a certain financial state so that you can retire in
comfort and never have to be concerned about whether or not you have enough
money to support your lifestyle. Financial independence frees you from
poverty and a need to depend upon others for your livelihood. If you save
and invest regularly throughout your working life, you will eventually
reach the point where you will never have to work again.
The fourth and final category is your desire for good health, to be free
of pain and illness and to have a continuous flow of energy and feelings
of well-being. In fact, your health is so central to your life that you
take it for granted until something happens to disrupt it.
OF MIND IS THE KEY
Peace of mind is essential for every one of these. The greater your peace
of mind, the more relaxed and positive you are, the less stress you suffer,
the better is your overall health.
The more peace of mind you have, the better are your relationships, the
more optimistic, friendly and confident you are with everyone in your
life. When you feel good about yourself on the inside, you do your work
better and take more pride in it. You are a better boss and coworker.
And the greater your overall peace of mind, the more likely you are to
earn a good living, save regularly for the future and ultimately achieve
Life is very much a study of attention. Whatever you dwell upon and think
about grows and expands in your life. The more you pay attention to your
relationships, the quality and quantity of your work, your finances and
your health, the better they will become and the happier you will be.
Here are three things you can do immediately to put these ideas into action.
First, take time on a regular basis to think about what would make you
really happy in each of the four areas.
Second, set specific, measurable goals for improvement in your relationships,
your health, your work and your finances and write them down.
Third, resolve to do something every day to increase the quality of some
area of your life - and then keep your resolution

just a few minutes every day can help regulate high blood pressure. According
to the Surgeon General and the American Heart Association, adopting a
routine of daily physical activity can help reduce your risk of developing
high blood pressure, or help you lower it if it's already too high. Walking
also significantly reduces your risk of dying from coronary artery disease
or a heart attack (exercise has as much effect as quitting smoking), and
makes your heart stronger and more efficient, so that it pumps more blood
with each contraction.
By Your Own Standards
I get to pick what I want to do, then it's play... if someone else tells
me that I have to do it, then it's work.”
Are you continually
struggling to accomplish what is expected of you? If so, stop to think
for a moment: who holds those expectations?
trying to meet the expectations of a parent or a teacher or other authority
figures who may be long gone from your life. But many of us toil under
the critical eyes of a vague ‘somebody’ who always judges
that we’ve never done enough or done things well enough. Who is
this phantom judge? And do we need to care about what they think any longer?
We find both
our own power and happiness when we begin to set our own standards around
what has heart and meaning for us.
yourself and you doubt everything you see. Judge yourself and you see
judges everywhere. But if you listen to the sound of your own voice, you
can rise above doubt and judgment. And you can see forever.”
