A simple truth about happinessAfter I gave a talk on the subject of happiness，a woman in the audience stood up and said，“I wish my husband had come．”“Much as I loved him，”she explained，“it wasn’t easy being married to someone so unhappy．”This woman enabled me to put into words what I had been searching －－altruistic1)，as well as the personal，reasons taking happiness seriously．I told her that each of us owes it to our spouse)，our children，our friends to be as happy as we can． I was not a particularly happy child，and like most teenagers，I took pleasure in my anguish．One day，however，it occurred to me that I was taking the easy way out．Anyone could be unhappy；it took no courage and eft．True achievement lay in struggling to be happy．The notion that we have to work at happiness comes as news to many people．We assume it’s a feeling that comes as a result of good things that just happen to us，things over which we have little or no control．But the opposite is true：happiness is largely under our control．It is a battle to be fought and not a feeling to be awaited．To achieve a happy life，it’s necessary to overcome some stumbling blocks，three of which are： Comparison with Others Most of us compare ourselves with anyone we think is happier－－a relative，an acquaintance or，often someone we barely know．I once met a young man who struck me as particularly successful and happy．He spoke of his love his beautiful wife and their three daughters，and of his joy at being a radio talk－show host in a city he loved．I remember thinking that he was one of those lucky few whom everything goes eftlessly right．Then we started talking about the Internet．He blessed its existence，he told me ，because he could look up inmation on multiple sclerosis3)－－the terrible disease afflicting his wife．I felt like a fool assuming nothing unhappy existed in his life． Images of Perfection Almost all of us have images of how life should be．The problem，of course，is that only rarely do people’s jobs，spouses and children live up to these imagined ideals．Here’s a personal example：no one in my family had ever divorced．I assumed that marriage was life．So when my wife and I divorced after five years of marriage and three years after the birth of our son，my world collapsed．I was a failure in my own eyes．I later remarried and confided to my wife that I couldn’t shake the feeling that my family life had failed．She asked me what was wrong with our family now（which included her daughter from a previous marriage and my son）．I had to admit that，aside from the pain of being with my son only half the time （my ex-wife and I shared custody）），our family life was wonderful．“Then why don’t you celebrate it？”she asked．That’s what I decided to do．But first I had to get rid of a “perfect” family．“Missing Tile5)” Syndrome6) One effective way of destroying happiness is to look at something and focus on even the smallest flaw．It’s like looking at the tiled ceiling and concentrating on the space where one tile is missing．As a bald man told me ，“whenever I enter a room，all I see is hair．”Once you’ve determined what your missing tile is，explore whether acquiring it will really make you happy．Then do one of the three things：get it，replace it with a different tile，or get about it and focus on the tiles in your life that are not missing．We all know people who have had a relatively easy life yet are essentially unhappy．And we know people who have suffered a great deal but generally remain happy．The first secret is gratitude．All happy people are grateful．Ungrateful people cannot be happy．We tend to think that being unhappy leads people to complain，but it’s truer to say that complaining leads to people becoming unhappy． The second secret is realizing that happiness is a byproduct7) of something else．The most obvious sources are those pursuits that give our lives purpose－－anything from studying insects to playing baseball．The more passions we have，the more happiness we are likely to experience．Finally，the belief that something permanent transcends8) us and that our existence has some larger meaning can help us be happier．We need a spiritual faith，or a philosophy of life．Whatever your philosophy，it should include this truism9)：if you choose to find the positive in virtually every situation，you will be blessed，and if you choose to find the awful ，you will be cursed．As with happiness itself，this is largely your decision to make． 8599不要借口真爱难求而紧闭心扉获得爱的最快途径是给予；失去爱的最快办法是握得过紧；维持爱的最好办法是给爱以双翅 不要让生活的脚步过于匆忙以至忘记你过去的足迹和你今后的人生目标 不要忘记人的最大情感需求是希望被欣赏 Five balls in life by Brian Dyson Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling some five balls in the air.You name them —work,family,health,friends and spirit and you’re keeping all of these in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back .But the other four balls—family,health,friends and spirit are made of glass these ,they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked ,incked ,damaged or even shattered .They will never be the same .You must understand that and strive balance in your life . How? Don’t undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different that each of us is special. Don’t set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you know what is best you . Don’t take granted the things closest to heart. Cling to them as you cling to your life, without them, life is meaningless. Don’t let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or the future. By living your life one day at a time, you live ALL the days of your life. Don’t give up when you still have something to give .Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying. Don’t be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect. It is this fragile th that binds us each together. Don’t be afraid to encounter risks. It is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave. Don’t shut love out of your life by saying it’s impossible to find . The quickest way to receive love is to give; the faster way to lose love is to hold it too tightly; and the best way to keep love is to give it wings. Don’t run through life so fast that you get not only where you’ve been, but also where you are going. Don’t get that a person’s greatest emotional need is to feel appreciated. Don’t be afraid to learn . Knowledge is weightless, a treasure you can always carry easily. Don’t use time or words carelessly. Neither can be retrieved. Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored esch step of the way. 91990实用英语口语：怎样赞美老外，效果超好 -- :9:38 来源： 虽然我们也知道“忠言逆耳利于行”，但是是个人都喜欢听表扬的话所以在生活中，记得嘴上常挂些小小的赞美，这并不是阿谀奉承，而是为了让彼此更舒心看了这篇文章，你就可以随时随地夸别人了哦You have a good sense of humor你真幽默(别人讲笑话不管好笑不好笑，都用这句美国人极其喜欢的表扬！)Your Chinese is really surprising!你的中文令人惊讶！(用来鼓励说汉语的老外)Your English is incredible我真不敢相信你的英语(用了六星级形容词！)You have a very successful business你的事业很成功(现代人喜欢听！)Your are very professional你非常专业(他会更认真！)Your are so smart你非常聪明(谁都愿意听！)I envy you very much我非常羡慕你(接下来你可以诉苦了)You two make a lovely couple你们真是天生的一对(他们会为选择了彼此而自豪)Your sondaughter is so cute你的孩子很可爱(外国人绝对喜欢听的表扬！)Your are really talented你很有天赋(给他动力和勇气)You look nice in that color你穿那种颜色很好看(搞不好，她会买一大堆那种颜色的衣)You have a good taste你很有品位(高层次的赞美)You look like a million dollars.
