Being happy is a valuable gift we give ourselves. To be happier requires no financial investment, no working late nights or weekends, and it returns huge dividends to the people we love and ourselves. With no downside and a big upside, happiness is a very lucrative investment.

Why, then, do we accept waiting for it when we can have it now? Why do we put off the wonderful feeling associated with happiness rather than experience it each day? If you are ready to begin taking steps toward a Happier You, there is no reason to wait. When you are ready to start following your passions and living your dreams, taking action today is what will get you there.

We are here for a short time. Stop waiting for what you want and go for it now.

Edmund Burke, a philosopher from the 1700s said, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Since high school, I grew up listening to friends and coworkers talk about all the things they planned to do someday, including contributing their time and money to charitable events
in order to make a difference in the world. These good and kindhearted people planned to do something. I was so inspired by these kind people with their selfless intentions that I committed to making a difference in the world as well.
