Success Magazine and happiness

I'm reading January's Success Magazine, which issue is dedicated to happiness. John Maxwell comes with a personnel development text. How to start something? Ok, start with you. As Mahatma Gandhi said, «Be the change you want to see in the world». So, take care of yourself, physically and emotionally.

Mel Robbins writes about battles we have to win and gives us the «recipe» for happiness, according to a recent British study. Here you are: «six hours of sleep, 20 minute commute, five home-cooked meals a week, a night out with friends or loved ones and regular exercise.» However, happiness depends on you. It is simply a feeling.

Kevin Harrighton talks about change and fear. Amazing insight: «If you do what you've always done, you'll always get what you've always gotten.» and «(...) Believe in yourself and in your product. Don't worry about the millions of viewers.»

I liked particularly the «Deadly Fears of Entrepreneurship», where I highlighted some great ideas of how to overcome fears and start a business. «The antidote to fear is faith in yourself, your business, your product and your dream.»

In closing, from the Success CD audioprogramme provided free, I loved very much the Shawn Achor's interview. Once more, happiness. «Companies don't hire people in order to make them happy, instead, companies hire already happy people.»

Happiness «is not an over there, can't be posponed. It is not an if (fill in the blank) I would be happy. Great words of the publisher Darren Hardy. Today is the day... to be happy.

Anyway, another inspirational Success issue to read and... hear.
