Radical Change and Happiness

Happiness Rx: “Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security.” -Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild (Mission of Alchemy Tours)

Travel and Happiness

“Happiness depends on ourselves.” – Aristotle.

One of the things I love most about traveling, is that if you want to be happy while going around the world you must learn how to be ACCOUNTABLE. When traveling in a new city or new country for that matter, many circumstances are out of your control and things may not unfold the way you expected them to. What is in your control is to be accountable for how you respond. “No matter what life presents to us we have the ability to move forward, to do something good for ourselves.

Affirmation: I MAKE MY LIFE AND NO ONE ELSE MAKES IT FOR ME.
