You can say things like, “As I look at successful people, and by that I mean rich people, yes, and I mean happy people, and sometimes they’re rich and happy.” But when I’m talking about the successful ones, what I really mean is the really happy people. People that are really joyful, that want to get up every day, that are eager to get into their day. Almost without exception, they had a pretty rough beginning, which turned them into a powerful rebel initially. And then they found a way to relax into their natural birthright of Well-being.
