IT'S NOT ABOUT GETTING WHAT YOU WANT!
Please read on to reveal that happy people get what they want or want what they get ...
We all have a laundry list of what we want: a new car, a flat belly, acknowledgment from our boss, appreciation from our spouses, money in the bank. However, what comes to us or doesn't come to us often seems outside of our control. How do we handle this? If what we want is to be happy, we can find a way to want everything we get, even those things we would typically not prefer, like no money in the bank, extra weight at midwaist, criticism from our boss, or the end of a relationship. It might sound counterintuitive, but it's about wanting what we get, even if what we get is the opposite of the items on our list. We can decide to want them (once they have happened) and create opportunities from any such events. HAPPY PEOPLE EITHER GET WHAT THEY WANT ... OR WANT WHAT THEY GET!
