Quotes about Being Happy
"Most of the choices we make each day may feel like the products of
well-considered decision making, but they're not.
They're habits. And though each habit means relatively little on its own,

exercise, and the way we organize our thoughts and work routines have enormous impacts
on our health, productivity, financial security,

Many things in life are beyond our control - our eye color, our race, the
drought in the Midwest. But there is a vast, unclaimed territory of actions
over which we can take control - or cede control to others or to fate.
These actions involve the way we lead our lives, how we deal with other
how we earn our living - all the aspects of existence in which we normally
have some degree of choice.
Martin E.P. Seligman, Learned Optimism: How to Change Your Mind and Your Life
The ability to succeed and create the life you really want has always
been a choice and not some random event. We are not just actors
on a stage reading lines; we can write our lines as we go.

A motive is an urge within the individual, such as an instinct, emotion,
habit, impulse, desire, or idea, that incites him to action.

Your highest paid, most important skill is your ability to think,
both before you act and while you are acting. It is your ability to
choose what is more important and what is less important.
Brian Tracy, Master Your Time, Master Your Life
Brian Tracy Quotes
You have the choice this very moment - the only moment you have for certain.
I hope you aren't so wrapped up in nonessential
stuff that you forget to really enjoy yourself - because this moment
is about to be over.
Oprah Winfrey, What I Know For Sure
The choice we make will determine whether we reinforce a world where
conflicts escalate out of control,
or create a new world where conflicts are transformed into opportunity.
Mark Gerzon, Leading Through Conflict: How Successful Leaders Transform Differences into Opportunities
We cannot succeed in building patience without firstly building and
developing the prerequisite attributes of fortitude and calmness.
Furthermore we must develop a methodical and careful approach
to the things we choose to do. These concepts extend well beyond the
realm of 'less than ideal circumstances' and 'irritation', it transcends
into our personal world as a way of mastering life.
Thus, Patience = Mental Fortitude x Calmness
James O'Donnell, How to Become Patient: How to Build Patience and Remove Impatience
