I don't tweet, but if I did...

The following email has just depressed me:
Good Morning –
What would make you happy? A new wardrobe, a faster car, moving to a different city?  People often think these things are the key to feeling good, but experts say only about 10% of a person's happiness is related to them.
Much more happiness -- 90% -- has to do with your general outlook on life. 
You can learn a lot about your own worldview by paying attention to "self-talk" -- the conversation you have in your head about yourself and the world around you.  Even more important, changing how you talk to yourself can actually help shift your perspective, too. Take a look at this week’s attachment to learn how.  
Say something nice to yourself today  - you’re actually pretty cool and you deserve to hear it!


  1. The world of the happy man is 90 % different from that of the unhappy man!

    (Or, as a friend once put it: "Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori, research shows".)

  2. Research shows that everyone is actually pretty cool and deserves to hear something nice.

    Or experts say this anyway.
