Living by Example

From Pessy Goldman: I have begun to live with intention. My intention is to teach that happiness is a choice. I want to share beliefs and tools that I've learned at The Option Institute with everyone and anyone I come into contact with.

Usually when I teach, I teach with the goal of my students actually learning something as a desired outcome. Not only that, I use their learning success as a yard stick for how well I've done my job. Although I am no longer a teacher in front of a classroom of students, I still teach. I teach what I do to everyone I meet.

I have implemented the tools I've learned at The Option Institute into my daily life. I share my beliefs with others, and look at the world through eyes of curiosity, fascination, and joy. I do not attach myself to an end result as I've done in the past. I do not measure my success by what I teach because my success lies in every breath I take.

With all of that being said, when I hear or see others I come in contact with say or behave knowingly that happiness is a choice, I fill myself with so much joy and gratitude. I am so glad the message is spreading - not only in thought, but in speech and in action as well.

Live what you want to teach. Live with love and acceptance. Live BIG!

Wishing you joy and blessings,
