I’m working on a very exciting project about success. It involves some of the country’s most accomplished people in business, sports and entertainment. They all shared that success does not bring happiness. In fact, it is happiness that is the success in life. Happiness is not about putting on a smile for others to see. It is an inner peace. It is gratitude, being thankful for all you have. Happy people  understand not every day is great but there is something great in each day. Happy people radiate confidence. They glow. True happiness is the best beauty secret I know. Happiness impacts everything in your life including your health, your relationships, your performance at work and how well you sleep. When you are happy, anything is possible. Surround yourself with positive people who support and encourage you. Design your life so you have something to look forward to every day. Be good to yourself. Get rid of things that weigh you down. Happiness is a mindset and a choice. Choose happy.
