The Key to Happiness is...

...understanding Supreme Principal First: The Irresistible Force. As best stated
by the character Tunde from The Baron Son, “One’s chosen mission and the will
to bring it into existence comprise one’s irresistible force.” Happiness
should arise from realizing that all that is left to do is decide on a goal
and spend the majority of your time working toward that desired result. My
co-authors and I chose this as the cornerstone Supreme Principal to be clear
that having a mission is just step one and equally important is acting out
Whatever you realistically expect of the world around you is exactly what you
will receive. In understanding how your expectation directly affects your
environment, it would be wise to think highly of yourself and your situation
at all times. Develop that glass-half-full mentality. Remember, the more
energy you expend thinking negatively, the more time you will spend in the
situation you predicted for yourself. Become a genuinely happy person.
Physicians have proven daily laughter can have positive health benefits;
improving blood flow, decreasing blood pressure, etc. We all know of the
positive mental effects. You are your own fortuneteller, so use this power
wisely. Successful individuals predict their achievements. Most of them spent
countless hours honing their craft before their eventual success. Evidence
that an idea alone will not see you through, unless the idea is to have the
necessary burning desire associated with it in the first place.
What is important about being happy is the understanding that everything you
need in this world is already contained within you. Your expectations bring
about your lifestyle. The good things that dominate your thoughts typically
play themselves out, as do the not so good things when the roles are reversed.
You should be happy that your expectations are within your control. It should
bring you joy that you are only limited by what you can imagine for yourself.
