    Hope & Service: Path to Happiness

    in Relationships

    Thank you for listening to Happiness Index and we are continuing our conversation on hope and service.   Hope is an optimistic attitude of mind based on an expectation of positive outcomes related to events and circumstances in one's life or the world at large. Vaclav Havel, former President of the Czech Rebubic said, Hope is definitely not the same thing as optimism.  It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out. We are convinced that everyone who gives of their time to serve others are deeply rooted in hope.  Hope is an optimistic state of confidence and an anticipation that service is hope.  It encourages to believe that your giving of yourself will make a difference.  Hope is a cornerstone of volunteerism. Our focus today will be on the value of hope to inspire us to serve and how hope and service is a path to happiness.  Thank you for listening to Happiness Index on Blog Talk Radio.  Join us in this conversation and make the world better for all, call (347) 539-5818.

Laughter is punctuation for play, Mukund said.  Of all animal species, humans are the biggest players of all. We are built to play and built through play. When we play, we are engaged in the purest expression of our humanity, the truest expression of our individuality.

    Belief: A Path to Happiness - featuring Kokomon Clottey

    in Relationships

    Welcome to Happiness Index.  Today our conversation is on belief.  Belief is an acceptance that a statement is true or that something exists.  It is trust, faith or confidence in someone or something.  We believe that happiness exists and that happiness is our natural state. The belief that happiness is an inside work is awesome. We believe that happiness is real.  It is the understanding that one possesses the capacity and the ability to take the right action to be happy.  Happiness is a blessing. "Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen," says Johann Wolfgann von Goethe. And, Mahatma Gandhi, said, "If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it, even if I may not have it at the beginning."  Please join in this conversation today.  Tune in to Happiness Index on www.blogtalkradio.com and cal (347) 539-5818 an share your wisdom on this very interesting topic.
