"A tennis player once spent his whole life trying to become No. 1 in the world. He amazingly achieved that goal, but when he got there, he said, "Is this it?" His happiness was short-lived. As a matter of fact, this player admitted that he looked forward more to mowing his lawn than playing tennis. . . . We were born happy. Don't believe me? Look at small children; my 10-month daughter, Ava, exudes happiness. . . . There's only one thing that can make you feel anything, including happiness . . . thought. What we think, we feel. Period. . . . Happiness is our true nature. . . . we naturally float back to happiness when we just let go of thinking that pops in our heads. . . when our minds are clear, the sky's the limit. . . Happiness comes from us, and we all have the potential to be happy. How do we access that potential? [R]emember the John Lennon song . . . "Let it be."
