Here’s a snippet from the Book:
Every single thing that you want, you believe that when you get it or when you achieve it, you will feel better, better than you are feeling right now Your emotions are the motivator. So, the end result is that you want to feel good. So, you have these beliefs that you have made up in your head that this person needs to be a certain way or I need to have this expe-rience in life or I need to reach this goal and after that I will be happy. This is absolutely not true.
You can be happy right now. You can choose to be happy right now. You can choose to be positive every day, you can choose to be grateful every morning when you wake up, you can choose to leave a situation, live your life in a certain way, no matter what your condition and what is happening to you in life right now, you have the ability to be happy right now. And believe me, it works.
