How are your resolutions for this year going?


Congratulations if you are still on track.


Many have already fallen off.


My friend George at my Toastmasters Club is a regular at the gym.


He says every year there is a flurry of activity as those who resolved to get fit join in. After about six weeks, most of them are gone again.



I have maintained that joy, fun and fulfillment are worthy resolutions.


Let’s look at joy.


“The purpose of our lives is to be happy.”

-Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama



What do we do to achieve happiness?


We strive and struggle to achieve “goals,” thinking that once we achieve one or more of them (or more likely many, many of them), then and only then we can relax and feel good


The problem? If and when we reach a goal, the feeling of accomplishment may not last long and then…it’s on to another goal. Seems like a treadmill to me.


Two Great Secrets:


1) There is a shortcut to feeling good and it doesn’t depend on getting any “stuff,” and


2) When we choose to feel good first, it’s easier to get “stuff.”


Over to you. Your thoughts?
