Changing the way you think and respond to external events and internal influences in your world is the first step to creating a life of happiness and success. If you are waiting for your world to change in order to be happy, then you may find yourself waiting an extremely long time. Start this very moment to take control of your thoughts and responses so you can enjoy the benefits of increased optimism and positivity, regardless of your current circumstances. Do this consistently, and little by little your world will change for the better.
To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s own mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and virtue will naturally come to him. ~Buddha
