Crazy title right? I was reading an article (I know it’s a shocker me reading an article) and the article mentioned all these ways to help stay mentally sharp . One way was to be happy it seems happiness and mental acumen seem to go hand in hand. They help each other smart people tend to be more happy and the happier the better your brain is for learning more.

So the article I read said to plan a trip but not take it. as a tip for making yourself happy.A study showed that the highest rate of happiness happened during the planning stage.  Getting your tickets, passports itinerary crafted despite the stress this was when your brain was happiest. The anticipation and excitement melded together to cause a wonderful perfect storm.  You are thinking about it now aren’t you. Now I am not sure about you,but I also enjoyed the trip I know I did. I loved it. I had free time with special people no stress a lot of fun so I say plan and if you can take the trip, but I also know that we live in the real world. The real world does not always allow the dreamers to fulfill their plans but it seems this is ok. That despite not seeing our plans to fruition we can still experience happiness and joy! This is great news! This is freeing news and this is news that when examined makes sense.

I have meet so many people who just according to society and culture should not be happy and they were! These people were happy despite their circumstances and they are dreamers, planners and many are living those dreams out. Well maybe modified dreams or plans but they are living and doing it all happy like.

I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.
Michael Jordan

It can become easy to be an victim of our circumstances. To avoid this we should employ  self motivation. One of the first steps in self motivation is seeing and setting a  goal, then planning to reach this goal. Finally execution of the plan. When you fail cheer up! You get the chance to plan again! Remember it is in the planning that we will experience the most fun! So welcome failure plan for success and enjoy life.

Failures are finger posts on the road to achievement.
C. S. Lewis
