“Seeking happiness outside ourselves is like waiting for sunshine in a cave facing north.”
How would you like a 10% return on your investments year after year?
Most people would be pretty happy with those results, except, perhaps, for some venture capitalists!
How does that relate to today’s quote? 10% Happier by Dan Harris is a book I highly recommend. Working on himself through his meditation and mindfulness practice, Harris tamed the voice in his head, reduced stress, and still kept his edge.
Meditation has allowed me to create far more sunny skies, because I’ve realized that we create our own weather through mindful self-awareness.
Consider picking up Dan’s book, or another resource on the value of daily meditation to help brighten your world.
I highly recommend the CALM app if you are just beginning this practice.
