The Number One Secret of Happiness

The Number One Secret of Happiness

By: Stan the Mann

I'm going to share with you, the number one secret of happiness. If you can't do this, you're never going to be happy. Life will be a struggle unless you have . . .

SELF-ACCEPTANCE. It means unconditional high self regard. It means loving yourself no matter what faults and imperfections you might have. No matter what mistakes you may have made. No matter how much your mother-in-law may criticize you.

You can't be criticizing yourself, putting yourself down, getting angry with yourself.

You might say, "I've made lots of mistakes. I've failed at a lot of things. I do not like making mistakes, I do not like failing. I just can't accept myself for that. I've got defects I don't even know I have. Besides, if I'm satisfied with myself, I'll never get better, never improve. How can you possibly say, I should accept myself unconditionally no matter what?"

That is so true! People will always put a label on you no matter what you do! What really matters is how you label yourself and how you see yourself as an individual

I say the Secret to Happiness is to do one thing with all your heart. I think of City Slickers:
"Curly: Do you know what the secret of life is?
[holds up one finger]
Curly: This.
Mitch: Your finger?
Curly: One thing. Just one thing. You stick to that and the rest don't mean shit.
Mitch: But, what is the "one thing?"
Curly: [smiles] That's what *you* have to find out."

This is so-so-true. I will print this out, post it on my wall, and try to make sure to beat it into my kids' heads.
