I was driving along the California coast yesterday. I came upon a traffic light that was blinking from red to green constantly. The drivers kept jolting forward to get through, and then slamming on their brakes to avoid an accident. No one knew what to do. That is what happens to us when our emotional signals are blinking madly.
The secret to success to blinking “YES” to happiness constantly is to understand this one thing – you are happy not because your day is going well, but your day is going well because you are happy.
When you wake up in the morning, set your emotional signal button to GREEN for the day. Spend some time focusing on all that is good and beautiful about your life. If your day begins to go awry, reset the emotional signal button. Take a moment out to remind yourself of all that is good and beautiful about your life.
