Thanks for sharing, Dale!

One of my favorite quotes is from Abraham Lincoln:   “people are about as happy, as they make up their minds to be.”   One of the questions Herb asks Joe in Walking with Herb, “Who is the happiest?..the man with the most, or the man who needs the least?…Joe, surprisingly enough, gives Herb the correct answer.

Keep the faith…Joe

 How do we find success and happiness ? It’s difficult because we have distorted the true meaning of success. The first Webster’s Dictionary printed in 1806 defined success as prosperous, fortunate, happy, and kind. If you now look in a dictionary it is described as attainment of wealth, fame, power, and rank. This message bombards us every day from every direction and we begin to believe we aren’t successful unless we attain these things. We must guard our mind against the illusion of success. The more we are connected to the illusion of success, the greater will be our disconnection from finding true happiness. The attached video will give you the correct path to success and happiness.
