When I first published Life Under the Influence of Clear, Effective Thinking I was humbled by the initial response. Everywhere I went friends and fans stopped me to say, “I’m so proud of you and I ordered your book.” Some mailed me their copy to autograph. Others bought several copies as gifts for friends. I got e-mails and phone calls and testimonials from people who experienced insights that helped them resolve a challenge or discover their own truth. One call was from a client, a CEO, who had read the entire book while on vacation, a huge compliment in itself. He told me how happy he was for me and then he asked me, “So, are you happy?”
I was caught off guard for a moment, and then I realized that I was so happy, it hadn’t even occurred to me to measure what I was feeling. It’s the purest state of mind I’ve ever experienced.
True Happiness is beyond measure, beyond words and definitely beyond thought. It feels so special, like a “once in a lifetime” feeling. I hope not.
True Happiness is the reward of persistence, and the by-product of your courage and faith in yourself. Never give up.
