"A life lived with integrity - even if it lacks the trappings of fame and fortune is a shinning star in whose light others may follow in the years to come."
"You are your own scriptwriter and the play is never finished, no matter what your age or position in life."

"You must understand that seeing is believing, but also know that believing is seeing."
What I Wonder...
Listen to my thoughts about Dennis Waitley's quote in the video below.
(NOTE: Yes, *I* wrote any captions you see in this video. It's called self-deprecation, and it's mostly a healthy thing (I think!).)
Sometimes I get to talk about an inspirational quote that I feel humbles me, and I am not worthy of talking about. And this inspirational quote by Dennis Waitley is one such time.
Whilst I completely identify with the message of Dennis Waitley's words, and of course I agree wholeheartedly with his thoughts on happiness, I am so NOT FULLY THERE right now:
YES, I understand that happiness is not a destination, but a journey. (I live fairly humbly, by western standards anyway - don't have a car, or TV or loads of gadgets - and am still happy with simple things, walking eating simple food I enjoy.)
YES, I completely accept that consumption is NOT the answer to any problem worth solving
YES, I get that it's not my achievements that matter, but my attitude to those achievements and my attitude to the achievements of others
NO, however, to living in the moment and finding happiness in the tick-by-tick moments that each and everyday offer - even when you're stuck in big queue at the supermarket, or your neighbour's playing loud music (again!) at a late hour
I really do wish.
Gratitude for the moments (every moment) - wow, that is so much the journey I want to take in my life, it really is.
Dennis Waitley's quote, I guess, shows me the light at the end of the tunnel, and the fact that I am still in the tunnel
How about you?...
Yes, how does happiness feel to you?
Do you agree that it looks how Dennis describes it, or do you think you'd be happy if only you earned a few thousand more per year (per month!)?
How well do you manage living in the moment, and feeling gratitude for all you have?
Are you even happy, right now?
All of these questions, and more, I'd love to know the answers to. And so would we all. Please feel free to share (below) what words come to the surface for you now.
Yes, as ever, I always want to know what you think of this or any of Dennis Waitley's quotes...
