The pursuit of happiness is one of the basic elements of human existence. We all just want to be happy.
Every person does indeed deserve happiness, and what is more, happiness is contagious. The more happy people there are around, then even more people will find happiness.
We owe it ourselves to work on our own happiness and we owe it to society as well. Because our own happiness will help others, and inspire others to find happiness. If we are unhappy then we are likely making others unhappy as well (even if unintentionally), and it is extremely unlikely we are doing much to contribute to the happiness of others.
So why are so many people unhappy and what is the secret to happiness?
Okay, so you made the decision to improve your health. You’re taking your vitamins, you’ve given up smoking and junk food, and you’ve decided to buy a juicer to take advantage of the health benefits of juicing. All good things.

It may be a challenging concept to wrap the mind around, but like it or not, we are all the authors and architects of the results we experience in our own life. Every thought we have, word we speak (whether to ourselves or out loud), and action we take is a seed planted – a seed that will germinate and grow when the appropriate conditions are present.
The process of inner healing is a long and difficult road that can be made simpler if we are committed to the growth and development that we need in order to do better in our personal and professional lives. We must be able to stay on top of all aspects of our lives and this means that we have to, continually go through the process of inner healing.
We think we need to improve ourselves and our current situation, because we’re dissatisfied (at least a little bit) with how things are. We have a drive to improve, improve.
So we strive for change — exercise more, eat better, read more, be more mindful, do more meaningful work, be more disciplined.
And yet, we struggle with change. Why is that? What’s going on?
