Happiness Matters

all happiness to youWhy do most people not realize that happiness matters? According to, Shawn Achor, an author who speaks in his Tedx Talks video about the happiness advantage, speaks about how we as a whole push our happiness to the other side of success which makes happiness virtually unavailable to us.

According to Shawn the minute we reach a goal, immediately we need to be or do better and our happiness gets pushed off to the future. The prize carrot, which is on the end of the stick, keeps moving as we get closer. Our happiness becomes just an illusion and we never get to experience our own joy. I am exhausted just writing about it. Continue reading

The Heart and Soul of Happiness

What is the heart and soul of happiness? According to many experts it is believed that the Soul attaches to the body by way of the heart. The heart is the first organ of the body to develop and when the heart stops beating the Soul departs the body and causes death. So all makes perfect scientific sense. Continue reading

The Power of Happiness

I am very grateful to be plugged into the power of happiness. Just as exercise strengthens the body, meditation strengthens our connection to the power of our soul. With physical exercise, when you first begin, you may feel some pain afterwards or have sore muscles. If you continue to exercise routinely that soreness subsides but you still feel the muscles you worked for hours afterwards. The exercise brings an awareness of your body into your consciousness.

Happiness is in Your Hands

How is happiness in your hands? What is happiness? What does happiness mean to you? According to Webster’s dictionary the meaning of happiness is a state of well-being and contentment. To me, happiness doesn’t mean laughing and having fun all the time, although laughter can certainly elevate your state of happiness and is highly recommended. Happiness is really being OK with what is, acceptance, being in peace.

What is Happiness All About?

What is happiness all about? Is happiness overrated? In my opinion, happiness is underrated. Most people I know are so busy getting through the day they do not take the time to focus on happiness. The Law of Attraction tells us simply that when we are happy we will automatically attract more things that make us happy. But most of us are focusing on all that needs to be done and what we get are more things that need to be done. Continue reading

How Does Your Attitude Fit Your Life?

How does your attitude fit your life? We get our clothes altered to fit our body, but what about our attitude? How often do we even think about our attitude or make adjustments? As a recruiter and sales trainer my job is to motivate others and I often tell my team, “Attitude, more than aptitude, will give you altitude in life.” In order to motivate others I need to keep myself in a positive state. This is something I work on every day. For me, the attitude of gratitude works the best. If ever I feel a bit down I make a list of all that I am grateful for. Gratitude brings me right back up.

How is it Possible that we all are the ONE?

How is it possible that we all are the One? When I was young and in Catholic school I had a teacher state many times over that the Bible tells us the world will end when we all are of ‘ONE’ mind. She usually stated this after some kind of squabble or upset, and then she would add, so I guess the world is not ending today. As a child I pondered those words often. Continue reading

Can you imagine heaven? What exactly is paradise? Imagination is a powerful tool, and a tool most adults leave behind. Why? Because we worry too much; do you know that ‘worry’ is a misuse of your imagination? Worry is a negative and takes away from your life. Continue reading

How I became Known As ‘Fortune Cookie’

Here is the tale of how I became known as ‘Fortune Cookie.’ A few years back I worked in a small BMW Center as General Sales Manager. My co-workers tagged one another with nicknames for fun and endearment. Very quickly I became known as “WooWhoo”because that is what I excitedly recited for every sale. There was one salesman there who was so non-excitable. One day he asked my co-workers about my whereabouts. In a very low, monotone voice he asked, “Where’s WooWhoo?” My co-workers laughed so hard and that became my nickname in the beginning.

How To Pump Up Your Happy Meter

25What do you do to ‘pump up your happy meter’? Do you even think about how happy you are? This is one area in life I am an expert; Happiness. Due to ten years of living in what I consider to be hell, my focus on the positive not only got me through the horror, but delivered me “heaven.” Heaven, I discovered, is a state of mind. More so, a state of being, but it takes a concentrated effort, and a true commitment, to put happiness first.

Let’s use our imagination for a moment. Imagine you are a balloon. To prepare a balloon to expand we first stretch it. So, allow your mind to accept a new idea. Now, imagine the helium as positive thoughts. At first, the balloon is resistant, as are you. But once enough helium (positive thoughts and feelings) is inserted, the balloon expands and begins to rise. Once past the halfway mark the balloon takes flight, and you (the balloon) float above all the negativity. Continue reading

Reiki Master Shares Her Story and Special Offer

Today I feature Reiki Master, Heather Corrine Lang.20150308_102906-1

I have come to where I am in life through some challenging life experiences, as we all have in some form or another. I relate back to the very first deeply overwhelming situation after I was married.  I married in my mid-30’s and at that time was still rather naïve. I believed (and still do) in the good in others.  This led me to be involved with a charismatic man who enjoyed many of the same things I did at the time, including concerts, spending time with friends and being around family. Once into the marriage, some of his habits were revealed which included alcohol and drugs. It took him being arrested for me to really start seeing with clearer eyes.  He was dragging me down right along with him in the form of co-dependence, depression and anxiety. Continue reading

Why Making Happiness Your Primary Goal is the Fast Track to Success

My article as it appears in The Professional Woman’s Magazine:

Why Making Happiness Your Primary Goal is the Fast Track to Success

Automotive sales leader shares how she rose to the top in a male-dominated industry

Insights from automotive sales leader and author Terri Lynn

When my career in automotive sales began I was living with horrible circumstances. My two young sons lived two hours away, I was living on welfare, and my life dreams were shattered.  I needed to train my brain to stay in the present moment otherwise I would have been swallowed by the sadness. One thing I understood was that if I were to survive I needed to be happy. So I made the commitment to be happy no matter what, which to this very day I see as my biggest accomplishment. Terri Lynn

Sales actually helped me achieve my goal of happiness because engaging with clients helped keep me in the moment and kept my mind off of what was missing in my life. The long hours filled my days and my commissions provided a means of support. I did the very best I could with the job in front of me (which I have since learned is one of the spiritual laws of success). Continue reading

Think Positive Thoughts and Enhance Your Happiness

thoughts are energyWhy think positive thoughts and enhance your happiness? Do you pay attention to what you think? Your thoughts really do matter in creating your life. My own experience has taught me just how powerful thoughts really are. When someone asks you, “How are you?” what is your response? Just that one answer can enhance your life over time. If you respond with, “Alright.” “OK.” or ” I’m Good.” is that positive? Those responses are not positive enough to get you into the positive state of creating, or increasing your happiness level. According to Rhonda Byrne in her book The Power we need to get ourselves  over the 50% positive mark to be able to attract and create the life we desire. Good, OK, and alright are not over the 50% mark, so in a sense, they are negative.

Happiness, Heaven, and Peace

just be happyHappiness and peace is every one’s own choice, but when you look at your life do you find happiness, heaven and peace? Do you feel inner peace? The world around us reflects back to us what we project, and what we look for in life affects what we see. This universe is one huge container of energy and is in constant change. Everything is contained in this container so whatever you look for you are able to find. When you look for love, you see love. When you look for hate, you see hate. When you look for heaven, you will see heaven. Heaven is here, now, if you choose to see the love in the life around you.

How To Put Happy In The Holidays

winter_dolls-t2For many people the holidays are a struggle and that is why I offer a few suggestions on how to put the ‘happy’ in the holidays. Do you struggle to get along with your family or the in-laws? This is a challenge for many people I know and makes me so grateful that I have a family I love to spend time with.

First, make the decision to be happy. That’s right, simply decide to be happy, no matter what, and remember that no one has control over what you think and feel. If you are around people who push your buttons, accept this going in and refuse to react. I suggest to watch yourself as if you were watching a movie and act out being happy. When you change your reaction the dynamic of the situation changes like magic. Continue reading
