Stop searching for what you already have. You must focus on what you already have. Do not live your life by fear. Allow yourself to live your life to the fullest. You can live your life with what you already have. Don’t wait for what you don’t have. It will never come. Instead of waiting for what is not there, why not nurture what you have. Stop searching for what is not there. Life is not about searching for what is not there; it is about loving and appreciating what you already have. It is about celebrating what is there. Stop trying to make yourself happy. You are already a happy person. Just focus on what is going well for you. Just think happy thoughts. Just remove all negative thoughts from your mind. Searching for what is not there brings no joy, no value to your life. Live your life. Accept your life. Accept yourself for who you are. Accept yourself for who you are becoming. Remember, what you are searching for, you already have. You just have to connect with yourself. You just have to allow your life to blossom. You just have to allow the happiness within you to exist. If you can do that, everything is within your reach.

People who are not happy with their lives are everywhere. You can’t control their feelings. But you can control yourself. You do that by thinking positive thoughts. Do not go to your work without a smile on your face. And whatever you do at your work, do it with love, with happiness, with excitement, with compassion, not with fear. Do not go to work with a negative attitude. Go to work with a positive attitude. Always carry a positive attitude with you. It is contagious. It is infectious. Don’t focus on their lack of enthusiasm. Do not let their negative feelings drag you down. Do not let their negative feelings stop you from giving your best. You can change yourself by thinking positive thoughts. If you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts, replace them immediately with positive thoughts. Walter D. Wintle said, “If you think you are beaten, you are; if you think you dare not, you don’t.” My question for you is, Are you beaten?
