Happiness starts with self! Awesome point my friend and I love how clearly you articulate this. So many people search for material things to make them happy and spend time "looking" for happiness when all they have to do is spend some time looking in the mirror and reflecting.
Ralph, awesome post and thanks for sharing your opinions on The Happiness Advantage. It's now made the cut and is on the list! To me, happiness is very subjective but isn't one of those things that needs to be carved in stone. It's all about getting in touch with how you feel right now. The more we get in touch with our passions and the root of our motivations, the more we can find happiness in the little things. Thanks again for sharing!

WOWWWWW! I wish I would have been more engaged in this conversation :) I like gigantic potatoes!!!
Betsy, I had a conversation with Jayme last week and spoke about a hypnosis experience I recently had. My aunt is learning the practice and asked if I could be her subject.
She was able to hypnotize me and actually left me with a "suggestion" (I can't remember what she called it) so that every time I saw the color red, I would instantly become overwhelmed with happiness.
I questioned her ability but as I walked to my car, I noticed all things red and felt a huge happiness pass through me. It was that moment when I realized happiness is a choice and it's something that's all in our heads!

Yes I really appreciated the opportunity to contribute here. A sincere thank you to miss Jayme!
Also, thanks for your kind words Amber-Lee :) I'm a firm believer in "raising the water level" and am thrilled I was able to contribute to your day!
Happiness doesn't have to be difficult. And it is a choice!
@Soulati | B2B Social Media Marketing @Mark_Harai
Yes Jayme, that was totally a post. Mark I printed off your comment and it's on the wall beside my desk at work. Some very insightful and powerful stuff. Taking personal responsibility allows the individual to be in complete control of their emotions and their life. It's been one of the foundational concepts I have learned in the past year at Clarity for the Boss and I will carry it with me through life.
Thanks again Mark!
Yes it really resonated with me too. It's so simple and easy to implement. It just takes a little work and you can change your entire outlook on life! Happiness is a fish I can catch!!!!
Thanks for your comment :)
@Soulati | B2B Social Media Marketing
Thanks so much Jayme! Yes, I found Achor's talk really helpful and the takeaways are awesome too. Happiness is such a simple thing. And to think that it's all about how we see the world and how we chose to define happiness for ourselves... It just seems like it's been far more complex for so long (for me).
Create a great day!

I feel like you got a lot out of creating your own BOA.. And through your response above, I gathered a few superpowers for you.
If you had to, how would you narrow this down to one specific word or is there a word that describes all of these things that hasn't been included here?
PS Awesome work Rogier! You are now on my list of interesting people that I want to meet in the next 12 months when I'm randomly touring through Europe :)

What an incredible idea: leverage technology to build your personal Board of Advisers!
If your BOA was open and honest, it sounds like you made an excellent choice with the selection process :)
So did you expect the responses that your BOA provided? Were you expecting to hear that your superpower was "being a people person?" And I'm curious to ask you (diving deeper), what is it specifically about being a people person that is your true superpower? Is it your ability to listen, connect with people, communicate? What lies at the root of your superpower?
Thanks for being vulnerable Rogier!
Hi Rogier, thanks so much for stopping by and my apologies for not responding sooner!
YES! I love 20 seconds of courage!!! That's absolutely all it takes :)
And then once you look back and see that little speed bump that held you up for so long, you realize it wasn't so bad! I find that's where I do my greatest learning. Thanks again for sharing Rogier and I look forward to connecting again very soon.

Hey Natasha! Thanks so much for your kind words :)Yes, although many find it humorous, the points about the law are completely true! I have so much I want to achieve in life and those things would definitely send me in the wrong direction.
I'm glad you were able to complete the exercise. I'm curious to know what stood out for you the most?
I ended up doing it twice and found my second attempt to be even more open, honest, and free from judgment. And it's always a really good feeling to know there are others out there with big dreams! Let me know if there's anything I can do to help you towards your dreams - regardless of the walk in closet!!!
I look forward to ongoing dialogue!
@Lori Great question! I'm in the middle of developing an opinion about that question and I will have to get back to you :)
However, I really do think that energetically we attract everything around us in life. I think we create our own destiny and it's all about the decisions and choices we make, how we interpret situations, and our belief systems with anything we experience.
I have something that you may find very interesting. What's your preferred email address?
1 year ago on Have You Ever Asked for a Sign?
I think we are all exposed to signs every single day. However, many of us get so caught up in the rat race we call life that we don't get to stop and enjoy the little things. I believe these signs are always there. It's just our perspective and interpretation that may seem them differently.
You have certainly created an extremely loyal community here and have many strong supporters. In this time of morning, know that my heart goes out to you - although it may not mean much.
I can't begin to imagine how you must feel. However, your openness and willingness to share has changed my perspective and I thank you for being so incredibly vulnerable.
@Mark_Harai Thank you good sir!
It saddens me to learn that the most memorable part of your airport experience was fired essentially for trying to create a better customer experience. I think you should look that guy up and welcome him into your "Hall of Fame of Awesome People" with your Starbucks barista http://bit.ly/SuyZ4m.
This sounds like another perfect example Seth Godin can use when discussing "things that are broken."
Thanks for sharing! Also, I hope the writing is treating you well ;)

I completely agree! It doesn't take much to train front line people in the art of customer service. You should put together a pitch and bring them on as a client. Sounds to me like they could use some help!

The thing that really gets me is that people make mistakes, especially in the food services industry, all the time. And I'm okay with that. Mistakes are a necessity for growth, that is if you're willing to see them as a learning opportunity. However, when companies don't take the ample opportunities to make things better (or less horrible), I get pretty fired up! And it's always the little things that add up to make a huge difference!
On the flip side, this post offers some great tips and I agree with @ShellyKramer , they are spot on. You have provided yet another opportunity for this establishment to make things right, and another opportunity for them to learn.
Again, great post and thanks for sharing!
@PegFitzpatrick Absolutely! Once I create my incremental plan it's all about accountability! I give myself due dates, set goals and have friends, family, and colleagues work with me and hold me accountable. It's very simple process but incredibly powerful stuff!
