An Important Message for the New Year

An Important Message for the New Year

01
A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work. ~ Colin Powell

In writing the Ministry of Happiness Blog for almost five years now I try to provide information that will help you live a happier life.  I often come back to the point that nothing is automatic there is some action you have to take and that you must take responsibility for your actions.  Hell it’s the mission statement for the Ministry of Happiness, here’s an excerpt:

What this ministry will not provide you with is absolution, condemnation or judgment.   The ministry will not tell you how to live your life or tell you what waits in the next.  Quite simply it will provide you with ideas and thoughts on responsibility and happiness, meditations on how things in your life can add or detract from your happiness. 

The approach taken here is a little soft, we provide the information, the resources, things to make you feel happier and point out that it’s your responsibility to make the changes you have to make to be happier.  We take this approach because life is hard and we don’t want to drive you off with harshness, but sometimes we all need a good kick in the pants.

Well consider this piece, Six Harsh Truths Which Will Make You A Better Person, that kick in the pants.  The piece makes six points but really is driving home the one single most important thing about making a positive change in your life, you have to do something.  Not just think about it, talk about it or make excuses, you have to step and actually make an effort to get the things you want.

It’s not an easy piece to read, it will make you feel bad, but hopefully it will also inspire you to take the all so important first step.  Good luck with that step, I know you can do it, I believe in you and when you do make that step, you’ll be on your way to happier days my friends ~ Rev Kane
