Happiness does not depend on outward things, but on the way we see them.
~ Leo Tolstoy

Steps to Happiness

Everybody should know:

You can’t be all things to all people.
You can’t do all everything at once.
You can’t do all things equally well.
You can’t do everything better than everyone else.
You’re human, just like everyone else.

So:

You have to find out who you are and be that.
You have to decide what comes first and do that.
You have to discover your strengths and use them.
You have to learn not to compete with others because no one else is in the business of being you.

Then:

You will have learned to accept your own uniqueness.
You will have learned to set priorities and make decisions.
You will have learned to live with your limitations.
You will have learned to give yourself the respect that is due, and you will be on the road to being the best “you” that you can be.

Dare to believe:

That you are a wonderfully unique person.
That you are the only one just like you in all of history.
That it is more than a right, it is your duty to be who you are.
That life is not a problem to solve, but a gift to cherish.
You will be able to stay on top of what used to get you down and achieve the impossible.
