"But my heart is agitated...it has dreams, it gets emotional and it becomes passionate.... It asks things of me, and it keeps me from sleeping many nights, when I'm thinking about her."
"Well, that's good. Your heart is alive. Keep listening to what it has to say."
"My heart is a traitor."
"Naturally it's afraid that, in pursuing your dreams, you might lose everything that you've won."
"Well then, why should
I listen to my heart?"

(1) by doing a deed;
(2) by experiencing a value;
(3) by suffering
"The burden of unavoidable unhappiness is increased by unhappiness about being unhappy."
Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder...
(Thoreau, American Philosopher)
"There are moments when troubles
enter our lives and we can do
nothing to avoid them. But they
are there for reasons. Only when we
have overcome them will we
understand why they were there. "
"Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own."
Executive, educator, writer and life coach Srikumar S. Rao asks, "Are you ready to succeed?" -- and in his famous course "Creativity and Personal Mastery," he teaches his students how to do so.
Srikumar Rao says we spend most of our lives learning to be unhappy, even as we strive for happiness. At Arbejdsglaede Live! 2009, he teaches us how to break free of the "I'd be happy if ..." mental model, and embrace our hard-wired happiness.
