You may already be a winner and not know it

…Sleepless nights summing up your life are not good for you. You need your rest.

…James P. Krehbiel, a cognitive behavioral therapist practicing in Scottsdale, AZ, and author of Stepping Out of the Bubble: Reflections on the Pilgrimage of Counseling Therapy, defines success as moving on, no matter what circumstances arise.

…It means being a fighter, the kind that never gives up hope.

…Mistakes are an option, complete failure is not.

…The world is not going to change to accommodate you.

…Persistent people are always knocking on the door of change. (HA isn’t.)

…Many people define success as having the right car, living in the right neighborhood, and having the right job. Many people have these things, but see them fade away on a moment’s notice, Krehbiel says.

…Incidentally, a psychologist at Stony Brook Univ has discovered that money does not make people happy. “It is mostly illusory,” he says. "The rich are not happier than others. If they are, it has little to do with the money they have…Increases in income have mainly a transitory effect.”

…What will sustain you when the American dream is no longer a reality?

…Part of success is to let things be the way they are.

…Move into the future, if you think about it at all, with the conviction that it will work out.

…OK, another sleepless nite coming up! (Aw, HA is just kidding.)
