Smart Goals Template – A SMART goal meets the criteria of the terms of the acronym SMART: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time Bound. By following this specific formula when setting your goals, you are more likely to achieve them.

Can Money Buy You Happiness? – New research is suggesting that happiness is determined not by how much money one earns, but rather, how one spends it. University of British Columbia associate professor Elizabeth Dunn explains why.

Gifts From the Heart – According to legend, a young man while roaming the desert came across a spring of delicious crystal-clear water. The water was so sweet he filled his leather canteen so he could bring some back to a tribal elder who had been his teacher. After a four-day journey he presented the water to the old man who took a deep drink, smiled warmly and thanked his student lavishly for the sweet water. The young man returned to his village with a happy heart.

Harvey Mackey: Gratitude – A university professor began reflecting on the people who had a positive impact on his life. In particular he remembered a schoolteacher who had gone out of her way to instill in him a love of poetry. He hadn’t seen or spoken to her in many years, but he located her address and sent her a letter of thanks.

Quma Inspirations Confidence – The word confidence comes from the Latin con and fidens, which literally mean “with faith.” Having faith in yourself doesn’t mean that your circumstances never unsettle you or cause you to doubt your judgments. It indicates instead a general self-assuredness, an inner belief that you will be able to successfully solve the problems — even if formidable — that confront you.

Thanks Giving Gratitude – Thanksgiving can be an attitude for life as well as a holiday that comes once a year. When gratitude is the lens through which we view the world, hassles and stress recede, and our true nature of happiness shines through.
