A Are you happy? Do you remember a time when you were happy? Are you seeking happiness today? Many people have 36 a variety of sources for their feel
ings of happiness.
Some have put their heart and effort into their work. Too many have turned to drugs and alcohol. Untold numbers have looked for it in the possession of expensive cars, exotic vacation homes, and other popular “toys”. Most of their efforts have a in one common fact: people are looking for a(n) 38 source of happiness. 39 37
Unfortunately, I believe that happiness escapes many people because they
the process and journey of finding it. I have heard many people say that, “I’ll be happy when I get my new promotion.” Or “I’ll be happy when I lose that 40
20 pounds.” The list goes on and on. You probably have a few of your own you could 41 if you wanted. This thinking is 42 because it presupposes(预先假定) that happiness is a 43 stimulus(刺
“response” to having, being or doing something. In life, we all
激) and response. Stimulus is when a dog barks at you and bares his teeth. Response is when your heart beats faster, your palms get sweaty and you 44 to run. Today,
some people think that an expensive car is a stimulus. Happiness is a response. A great paying job is a stimulus. Happiness is a response. A loving relationship is a stimulus. Happiness is a response. This belief “I’ll be happy when?” It has been my finding that actually the 46 is true. I believe that happiness 47 . When 45 us thinking and feeling:
is a stimulus and response is what life brings to those who are truly we are happy, we 48
to have more success in our work. When we are happy, people 49
want to be around us and enjoy loving relationships. When we are happy, we more
take better care of our bodies and enjoy good health. Happiness is NOT a response— 50 , it is a stimulus. Happiness is a conscious 51 we make every day of our lives. For unknown
reasons to me, many choose to be painful, unsuccessful and angry most of the time. H a p p i n e s s i s 5 2 .
something that happens to us after we get something we want—we usually get things we want 53 we choose to be happy. 54 rule for my own happiness: Every day above ground
