PROT358 is a SparkPeople Motivator!
I am Trisha! I've been sparking since 2010. This past year I regained every pound I had lost. I have done some soul-searching trying to find happiness and lasting results.
I have been reading "The Law of Happiness" by Dr. Henry Cloud. Only 10% of a person's happiness depends on circumstances. (I will be happy when I am richer, thinner, married, etc).
50% of a person's happiness has to do with a person's genetic makeup and temperament.
The remaining 40% comes from factors we can control: our thoughts and actions.
It's easy to focus on the 10% of our circumstances and say, "I will be happy when . . ." We need to learn to focus on the 40% in our control and create our happiness now.
