Happiness, Success or Both? You Choose

Jul 2011

Success can be defined as ” getting what you want”, while happiness is defined as “wanting what you already have”.

Do you really appreciate what you already have? As an over-anxious over-achiever, I know I have frequently been guilty of not fully appreciating what I have already.

Do you fully appreciate the friendships and relationships that you have now?

Have you told people that you like, appreciate, or love them?

Having seen too many people die before their time, I know other’s biggest regret is that they never told them how much they mattered to others and the depth of their appreciation.

Do it today……….tomorrow sadly maybe a day too late.

Warm regards Jonathan
