Eight games, as played by our brain

1. I'd be happier if I had less to work with.Our mind often resorted to this argument, claiming that we would be happier if I wasn't supposed to work.

The moment when we take responsibility for your life, will serve as the Foundation of true happiness.

Anyone who wants lasting happiness, must realize that barrel desires bottomless, and it never filled dovera. But true happiness comes from within... 5. I love what is, and not want to change.Allowing yourself to think in this way, we create all preconditions for falling down. Life is a journey in constant change. Some of them we control, some don't. Resistance to change or an attempt to take control is doomed to failure. Change is inevitable. You have to accept it and learn to sail in a continuous stream of changes. The ability to adapt is very important for happiness. 6. If not today, then never.Our mind often falls into despair and give in to disappointment in a few steps from success. Perseverance is very important to achieve happiness. Never allow your mind to deceive you and take your defeat. You don't know what will bring you tomorrow.
