Thank you for tuning in to Happiness Index. Today we will be exploring the Attitude of Gratitude: Path to Happiness with Kokomon Clottey. The key to happiness is the development and knowing the art of being grateful. “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend,” as stated clearly by Melody Beattie. Here lies the greatest secret to happiness. One must always be in the frame of mind of gratefulness and cultivate a sense and attitude of gratitude, if one truly want to tap into one’s inner happiness and maintain it. We suggest that we must be grateful for the sun, ocean, billions of stars, the birds that sing and everyone that we share our home “Planet Earth” with. This attitude of gratitude is a path to happiness.

Service: A Path to Happiness
We are re-visiting service as a path to happiness in 2015. Service has a different meaning for many people. However, true service according to the ancient teachings of wisdom traditions is a path to happiness as well as greatness. Examples of great leaders are, Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, Buddha, Jesus, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mother Teresa, Princes Diane to name but a few. All these leaders have one thing in common they served humanity and they went beyond a call of duty. Conceptually, one does not attained greatness until after one’s death. The challenge is that one cannot take the road to greatness by being of service; it is the other way around, one must take the road of service to be great. Dr. Martin Luther King said, "Everyone has the power for greatness -- not for fame, but greatness, because greatness is determined by service.” Service is a matter of devotion and love! It is a matter of the heart. Thank you for tuning in to "Happpiness Index". Call in and let's talk about your view on service and happiness.
Happiness comes from your specific perspective on the world - how you see the past, the present, and the future. To live in the present, you must accept the past; make peace with it. Find whatever you can to be grateful for the experience and then free yourself to enjoy life in the present. Allow yourself to be amazed and awed by the mystery of the world and the universe happening around you.
Have a "happiness checkup". Be bold enough to ask yourself, “Am I happy? If you are not happy, confront yourself on how you feel about your past experiences; are you living in the present, and do you dream about the future? Are you taking care of yourself? Do you eat right? Are you sleeping enough? Do you exercise? Are you in need of a healthy relationship or good networking acquaintances?
Dig deeply to access your feelings; stop just be going along for the ride. Look for challenges each day and very aware of what is going on around you; get mentally engaged in your life. You must have something to feel passionate about; something that peaks your interest. If your lack of happiness is due to dynamics of your relationships, ask yourself, “What am I bringing into the relationship?” Am I contributing to the relationship in a manner that nurtures it and helps it stay alive and grow? Be prepared to do something about what is lacking.
Anticipate the future with excitement. Death is the only thing that will stop Tomorrow from coming so participate in making it wonderful. Set yourself up for success by planning good things that are doable: "Tomorrow I’m going to do something nice for somebody. Tomorrow I’m going to get focused on a project I’ve been waiting to do. Tomorrow I will register for a class."
Happiness will find you if you are at peace with the past; be engaged in the present and excited about the future.
Optimistic thinking is an ancient wisdom. When one exercises optimistic thinking it inspires a host of opportunities, such as peace, love and happiness. Research by Manju Puri and David Robinson at Duke University finds that optimistic people work harder, get paid more, get elected to office more often, and win at sports more regularly. They even live longer. The meaning of optimism according to the Webster’s New World: The tendency to take the most hopeful or cheerful of matters or to expect the best outcome; practice of looking on the bright side of things. Albert Einstein said, “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.” We are responsible for our thoughts and our feelings", according to the wisdom of Attitudinal Healing. As such, the key to cultivating and maintaining happiness depends on us as the architects. When one holds an optimistic attitude, one can alter life’s experience from negative to positive.

Service has different meanings for all kinds of people. However, true service according to the ancient teachings of wisdom traditions is a path to happiness fused with compassion. Compassion shapes our service and increase our feelings of joy and happiness.
Service and compassion was exemplified by St. Francis of Assisi in the following prayer and it beautifully reflects his devotion to God.
"Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy."

Tune in to a Happiness Index on Blog Talk Radio with Kokomon Clottey! Kokomon continues to open a dialogue on service for our global community. Service has different meanings for many people. However, true service according to the ancient teachings of wisdom traditions is a path to happiness as well as greatness. Examples of great leaders are, Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, Buddha, Jesus, Martin Luther King, Jr. Mother Teresa, Princes Diane to name but a few. All these leaders have one thing in common they served and went beyond a call of duty. Conceptually, did the deep service that these icons gave to the world offered happiness to them. This can be debatable. Sometimes it may take many years before society (people) realized the enormous contribution one has made to uplift the human condition and it may appear that they did not receive the happiness they deserved. The challenge is that one cannot take the road to happiness by being of service; it is the other way around, one must take the road of service to realize true happiness. The Dalai Lama said "If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion." Therefore, we can assume that true happiness comes from being of service and practicing compassion. If we can practice compassion for all beings, we can be happy." Join us on the "Happiness Index" and discover true happiness.
