Five Simple Rules for Happiness


While scanning a Facebook page, we found this little gem from a dear friend of ours that he posted:


Five Simple Rules for Happiness

  1. Free your heart from hatred.
  2. Free your mind from worries.
  3. Live simply.
  4. Give more.
  5. Expect less.


It’s the sort of little post on Facebook we see regularly, a little helpful suggestion on how we could change our lives for the better, the sort of thing we read, smile about, and move on and usually forget.


It’s an advertisement for an e-book entitled 1000+ Things Happy, Successful People Do Differently by Marc and Angel Chernoff.  We think that we’ll be ordering the book, currently offered at $27.  Now, wait a minute- does that sound like a lot of money?  Not if we learn even one little thing from this book to live a happier, more successful life.  You should understand, this isn’t a paid endorsement.  We haven’t yet ordered the book, read it, or been compensated in any way- EXCEPT that we immediately recognized and affirmed the value of the study of it.  We imagine that the dividends such a book would contain would be well worth the price.


Isn’t your happiness important to you?  It is to us.  We spend a great deal of our money looking for such secrets and also finding out how to manifest it and anything else we desire in our lives.  We’ve found a great deal more happiness by doing this than the average person finds, by the way. That’s not to say we are better than anyone else, just happier than most.  We’ve found our mission in life and are right now, right in this instant pursuing it.  We share our joy in these words you see right now, in this moment.  We live for this!  You could too, find your purpose, find what gives you the most lasting joy and do it.


We strongly suggest that you invest in your happiness, if not in this work, find another that suits you best.  Keep looking, learning, and changing.  Notice what is working as you change, what is bringing you closer and closer to a state of pure bliss, pure joy, pure love, and pure happiness.  Someone has written, produced, or recorded something which will bring you into alignment with those wonderful states of mind.  Find them, become a richer, happier person because you did.
