The secret to happiness is…

“In the hopes of reaching the moon men fail to see the flowers that blossom at their feet.” 

~ Albert Schweitzer

I am convinced that there are no “secrets” to happiness or success. As much as authors, publishers and our own minds would like to convince us that shortcuts exist, they do not. Living a successful life is pretty simple. You create a vision for the future, formulate a strategy and then work hard to achieve it. There are no shortcuts or secrets to this formula. Accepting this will get you much further down the path to happiness than anything else. So, choose to be happy and watch your world blossom into something beautiful.

    It may not be a short cut, but it isn’t a highway either. 😀
