Andrew Matthews- Support Yourself

In a 5 points article Greg Soltis give the 5 keys to happiness.

If you’re not happy and you know it read along.

You’ve watched “Seinfeld” re-runs, splurged on yourself and downed pints of Ben and Jerry’s. Nothing’s helping. Maybe you’re one of the 20 million Americans diagnosed with depression, you’re bottoming out or you just want something to improve your day.

Here are five ways — some admittedly challenging — to help you get that much-needed mood boost:

  1. 1. Pick good parents
  2. 2. Give it away
  3. 3. Ponder this
  4. 4. Work out
  5. 5. Live long

In spite of the literature that are published there on, I am of opinion that there is only one way to achieve happiness: just be Happy

The question will then be: How?

Andrew Matthews who I cited earlier, have 7 lessons to guide you in the’ How’:


Some people constantly CRITICISE themselves.

They say things like:

“I’m FAT.”


“Watch me SCREW THIS UP!”

There are two problems with criticizing yourself:


You BECOME what you think about.

So when you criticize your own performance, it gets worse!


Criticizing yourself IRRITATES other people.

Eventually, even your friends will want to smack you in the mouth!

Self criticism is not humility, it’s stupidity.

So this is your job for the next 24 hours:

Notice what you say about yourself.

Starting today, say ONLY GOOD THINGS about you!

If you have nothing good to say, say nothing!

And the result?

1. You’ll feel better.

2. You won’t irritate other people.

3. Your performance will improve.

Just today, support yourself!

You may choose to make it a lifelong habit!
