High Performers make a choice to be happy. They realize the importance and that up to 40% of our happiness can be changed. They realize they are in control of their lives, do work and have fun in things that engage them. They also give priority to their close relationships and work to express gratitude each day.

I choose happiness. I take control of my happiness.”

Life is simple. Everything happens for you, not to you. Everything happens at exactly the right moment, neither too soon nor too late. You don’t have to like it…. It’s just easier if you do.” Bryon Katie

High Performers see obstacles and difficulties as happening for them not too them. They blame appropriately, not denying that is it difficulty, but use their cognitive appraisal to see the good that can come from everything.

Power Phrase This Week: 

I see difficulties as happening for me not to me. I see the gift in the difficulty.”

“The worst lies are the lies we tell ourselves.” Richard Bach

High performers know they can lie to themselves. They realize that growing their mental strength is about learning to lie to themselves less! They remember that happiness doesn’t come from what they have, but from within. They think like a 60 year old instead of believing the lie that others will think they are silly. They celebrate what makes them unique. And they realize everyone is struggling with something.

Power Phrase This Week: 

I let go of the lies I tell myself to become the person I was meant to be.”
