Happiness Information

Happiness. Its Between Our Ears!

Happiness is something we all seek, yet few of us find

-Some search for it an acquiring material possessions

-Some search for it in experiencing pleasant sensations

-Some search for it in seeking the approval of others

-Some search for it in the exercising of power

-Some search for it in the love of money

-Some search for it in the quest for success

Yes, Happiness is something we all seek, and yet for most it is something that comes, then slips away, to be always just out of reach. Why? Is life really unfair? Aren't we meant to be happy? Are we being punished?

The interesting thing is that all these ways that people search for happiness, and the questions they ask when they don't find it, have one thing in common.

They are all OUTSIDE ourselves. Sadly, most people are looking in the wrong places, and asking the wrong questions.

The truth is that Happiness is something that comes from within us. One night, trying to express my thoughts, I sat and wrote these words...


We'll never find true Happiness
In more and bigger Things,
In pleasures sought outside ourselves;
In money, cars or rings

For Happiness is a state of mind-
We can opt for happy years,
When we take control of our Attitude,
And the thoughts between our ears.

I know, as a poet I make a good athlete! But if my words are inadequate to convey the meaning, it is no less important. Read, savor and write down, these beautiful words from Charles Spurgeon.

"It is not how much we have, But how much we enjoy, That makes happiness."

John Payne has lived an interesting life, and overcome many problems with a common sense, positive attitude and joy for life.

He is the Founder of the fast-growing business, Enviro-Friendly Products.
