Happiness is a by-product of cheerful, honest labor dedicated to a worthwhile task.

~ Rabbi Greenberg

I know we have all gotten caught up in our society’s definitions of happiness: new clothes, new homes, new cars, great jobs, lotsa of money, etc. Lately, it includes advanced technology, the latest fastest gadgetry, etc. Did any of these ever bring you true happiness or permnanent bliss? I expect not. True happiness and bliss come from within. No material goods or titles will replace joy.

Today’s Life Coach Action Plan: Identify a worthwhile task for yourself: such as food bank donations, a church, a person in need, an environmental concern, etc. Any of these can be a beginning for you. One does not have to earn money in order to be happy with their productivity and contributions. Devote one hour today to a cause that betters the world around you. It is not how much we can get, but how much we give that brings true happiness. Be happy.

Note: Please comment below and let me know how this works for you.
