111 Ways to Create Happiness and Success Every Day

“Happiness is not a goal...it's a by-product of a life well lived.” Eleanor Roosevelt

Enjoying good company is priceless.

“If we all did the things we are capable of doing, we would literally astound ourselves.” Thomas Edison

These wise words by Thomas Edison are as true today as they were when he was alive—almost 90 years ago. If we believed these words with all of our mind and with all of our heart, we would know ourselves more deeply and we would also know our true self-worth—and literally astound ourselves.

We all desire happiness and success in life, that’s part of our DNA. It has been scientifically proven that the choices we make every day impact our happiness and success. Therefore, the quality of our choices will greatly determine the levels of our happiness and success in life.

We can be successfully happy and happily successful—the choice is ours.

One of the greatest lessons that I have learned in life is that there are things that we can control and things that we can’t control. 

Fortunately, we can control the choices we make.
