This is a neat article about Happiness. I guess, happiness tends to be highest among Latin Americans and Americans.


I think when you determine to enjoy your life, your level of happiness goes up. Take some time to smell the roses. :O)

Some other ways to increase your happiness include:

  1. Associate with other happy people
  2. Major on your strengths, not your weaknesses
  3. Think big and play to win, rather then playing "not to lose"
  4. Have goals and focus on what you desire...not what you don't want and "who's to blame".
  5. Be a blessing
  6. Count your blessings - An attitude of gratitude will lift your altitude in life.
  7. Forgive...including yourself.
  8. Learn to love yourself and like yourself.
  9. Learn the art of boundry setting - Use "Yes" and "No" with wisdom
  10. Excercise
  11. Celebrate when you achieve your goals and when you are making progress toward your goals.
  12. Find your purpose and be a person of vision. Being a person of vision will cause you to flourish in life. A lack of vision will cause you to 'cast of restraint'. Be a person of vision.
  13. Laugh. They say that as part of a positive health regime you need to laugh around 15 minutes a day. The average adult laughs very little. It's hard to be happy, when you carry a 'grim' contenance and it's not good for your health.
When you get in God's presence it produces happiness. As King David so powerfully declared:

"Glory and honour are in his presence; strength and gladness are in his place."
1 Chronicles 16:27

The Presence of God is a place of glory and honor, as well as strength and gladness.... It's a place of Happiness.

Religion can sometimes burn you out, but Jesus will lift you up. :)

Here is another link on "Positive Psychology" that really gaining momentum in this nation and throughout the world:

Have a great day and celebrate life! :)

You are the best.

The 11th Element

This is is a pretty interesting site:

I read aspects of the book called "The 11th Element" . Some of it's kind of "new agey", but I think he's onto something. I think his message is about getting in touch with your spirit and being aware that there is an invisible spiritual realm.

He states that there is an invisible "spiritual internet" that people can tap into. He also discusses getting in touch with your "Inner CEO", which I believe is another way of describing your "inner man", "spirit man", intuition or your conscience. His grandfather used this concept to build the company Man Power, Inc. The concept relates to the idea of 6 degrees of seperation, but in a spiritual sense.

I tend to believe this is true. If you've been on job you've probably noticed some invisible "synergy" going on that's has a theme. People start thinking the same thing, even without discussing it and in seperate sections of the organization. It's intriguing.

This is an interesting link as well:


He declares that we subconsciouly all have a financial blueprint that we operate within. It's kind of like an unconsciouse thermostat that sets the climate for our financial life. If you can upgrade your underling financial blueprint, you will begin to see financial increase manifest in your life. It's based on the concept that your inner life eventually manifests in your outer life. It all starts within...

I think what he's talks about is renewing the "spirit of your mind". The spirit of your mind is your subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind tends to govern things without you realizing it. In some cases it can be a great friend and in other cases it needs to be "renewed" with God's Word. God's promises can renew the spirit of your mind and bring you out of sickness into health, poverty into wealth, defeat into victory. Meditation in God's Word is one of the keys to "renewing the spirit of your mind". (Psalm 1).

Begin to see yourself in a new way and envision a bigger future.

This is a great book along those line to stir up your vision:
