A great philosopher who ruled in the Roman Empire, Marcus Aurelius, summed up in eight words what can determine our destiny. He said “Our life is what our thoughts make it.” This is by far one of the most vital lessons we need to learn on our path to health and happiness. Our thoughts make us who we are and definitely affect our mental attitude.
About ninety percent of the things in our lives are right and about ten percent are wrong. If we want to be happy, all we have to do is concentrate on the ninety percent. If we want to be worried and bitter and have stomach ulcers, all we have to do is concentrate on the ten percent that is wrong with our lives.
“Happiness is from within, it is not a matter of externals”, said Dale Carnegie, the author of ‘How to Stop Worrying and Start Living’. Dale Carnegie also said that worrying can cause our bodies to become ill, so let’s take his advice and count our blessings, not our troubles.
