Don’t Worry, Be Happy….really?

Girl in poverty India with dog

Looking at this picture it struck me how joyful this little girl is. She has a genuine big happy smile on her face and it appears her dog does too (ya’ think?)

And yet look at all the filth she lives in. This is how millions of people live in the slums of India.  

With government shut downs, high unemployment, slow economic recovery and rising gun violence, it’s easy to get caught up in the complaining game here in the USA right now.

Happiness is a relevant term.  

As a motivational speaker talking about taking risks to achieve more success, I look for inspiration in events, situations and people. This little girl is my inspiration for this week. I’m so grateful to live in a nice home with clean running water, electricity and a roof over my head that keeps me dry, safe and warm. All of a sudden car problems don’t seem like so much of a problem. After all, I have a car.

Since the only constant in life is change it means nothing stays the same – even problems.  

Be happy NOW. Really.
