Happiness is Key to Claiming you are at your Personal Best

Posted: May 17, 2019

As a boy, I think what drew me to Martial Arts was the demeanor Chuck Norris and Bruce Lee had in their movies. Both characters had their share of adversity both physically and mentally, but I always watched in awe at how calm they were under the most stressful of circumstances. They found their focus, did what they needed to do and then went back to their normal happy life.

Are you happy? Does the answer depend on when you are reading this? Are you a person that exudes happiness all the time? I think you may agree with me there are certainly moments in life where happiness permeates everything around us.

Here are some suggestions from Personal Development expert Brian Tracy that will keep you focused on the right things and give you more daily joy and happiness in your life.

Bullying takes many forms.  It can be a threat, making fun of someone or not including someone in activities.  It can be mean spirited or just distant and cold.  It can be one-on-one or it can spread to situations where a group of students are all focusing negative energy on one lone sole.  Whatever the exact description, it is all considered bullying.
