  The Truth About Supremely Happy People
It's not that they're happy all the time, but when they're not they don't take it too seriously.

Written with Dr.Jack Pransky

 

Very happy people all have one thing in common, though most of them don’t even know what it is. They spend more

time living in positive, upbeat thinking than the rest of the population. They don’t do it on purpose; it’s natural to them.

If you took a closer look you'd see that they don’t focus on what they don't like in life. They are more enamored with,

more intrigued by, and more interested in the joyful aspects of life. If two poles existed with positivity at one end

and negativity at the other, they would naturally gravitate toward the positive. Because they enjoy it so much they

tend to have more benevolent thinking. They don’t even know they’re doing it because they don't think they're doing

anything. And they're not; they're just being. They would say, "Well, what other way is there to be?"

 

How do we know this about them? Because we know this about us! It's not that we're happy all the time, but when

we're not we don't take it too seriously. We know it will pass and, lo and behold, the happiness eventually returns.

Unlike many of the people we spoke of above, seeing through the eyes of happiness and positivity did not come

naturally to us. Jack's ex-wife used to call him "Doctor Doom" because he was always looking at what could go

wrong. Lori was depressed for years and spent years talking about it to a therapist!

 

But we learned something.

 

We learned about "The Three Principles," and by "principles" we mean "universal truths" or facts about how our

entire experience of life is created—not what happens to us in life, but what we make of what happens to us, or our

internal experience of whatever happens to us. In other words, what we have come to understand about these three

psychological/spiritual principles at the core of all human experience is what brought us to the state in which happy

people naturally live. Anyone can attain a happier, more joyous experience of life with a deep enough understanding

of these principles.

 

We do not have enough space here to go into detail about what the three universal principles of Mind, Consciousness

and Thought are, but to cut to the chase, at their essence and most simply, what these principles mean is

that whatever happens in the outside world can never make us happy or unhappy. What makes us happy or unhappy

or any other feeling or emotion comes from our own thinking appearing and feeling real to us. Happy people are

happy because they see themselves and the world through happy eyeballs (their own thinking), plain and simple.

Unhappy people are unhappy because they see the very same things through the eyes of anger or upset or
