Everybody wants to be happy, but not everybody is happy. You know I can take you back to the man who gave me this book, his name is Rey Stanford. During those times, I was a very unhappy individual. I was a sad soul believe me, and I remember one day he said Bob you have to change. Would you like to be happy? Well, I used to think that was something that happened to some people but you weren’t control of it. I really never knew that I can control my own happiness, I didn’t know that, and I’m gonna tell you something. There’s a whole lot of people who don’t know that, otherwise you wouldn’t find so many people who are pretty sad. I’m going to tell you a secret Bob, he said “If you get it you can benefit from this, until you’re very old man” he said. You are in control of your own happiness. I’m going to tell you why you’re not happy? There’s a thought energy flowing into your consciousness and you know what you do? You bottle it all up inside, all of your energies focused on you.
You are the only thing that you think about, like “poor me”, “I wish that some money”, “I wished”, I wished, I wished, but your thoughts are always about yourself. If you find someone else to help, if you can help someone, and I’m gonna tell you there’s a whole lot of people out there want help, if you focus on helping other people you’re going to be one happy person. No, I don’t think I got it right away. But he knew probably I wasn’t gonna get it right away. I don’t know I was trying to figure out how to get some money, how to help myself? I want you to think about this for a moment, there so many people need help. In Chapter 14 of The Science of Getting Rich is a powerful concept, that leave everyone with the impression of increase, if you do that you’re helping people. Happiness is always found in a person who is focusing on helping other people.
