The First Trick To Happiness – And Success…


Appreciate what you already have!

Here is a small excerpt from a book by Andrew Matthews, an amazingly talented guy whom I have been priviledged to hear and see presenting on stage many years ago in Perth.


What We Have

Imagine that we discovered life on Mars – even if it was only a tiny bug, or an ant with one leg…

The world would go crazy! Splashed across the front page of every newspaper would be headlines, “THERE”S LIFE OUT THERE!”

Scientists would be ecstatic, “Another species!”

Now here’s what’s strange…twenty-seven thousand of the earth’s species of birds, plants, animals and insects became extinct last year.

The story never made the headlines.

Our tigers and pandas and frogs are disappearing. Meanwhile, we look for signs of life in outer space!

How often do we overlook the great things we have – and go looking for new stuff?

We do the same thing in relationships!

When we finally realise what we had, it’s gone.

The first trick to happiness – and success – is to appreciate what we’ve already got.

Andrew Matthews, from his book “Happiness Now”

Andrew has written numerous best sellers, including “Being Happy”, “Making Friends”, “Follow Your Heart”, “Being a Happy Teen”, “Happiness in a Nutshell”. His books have been translated into 33 languages and are bestsellers in 60 countries! He is a much sought after speaker around the world on attitude, achievement and prosperity.

Tony Inman Resorts 360Tony’s Viewpoint: I love the way a cartoonist can encapsulate an idea or a concept with a simple image and the exaggeration of caricature work. With Andrew’s work we are even more fortunate, because he writes and speaks well too.

Notice the cartoon shows a man relaxing in a hammock between palm trees with his favourite cocktail?

If you already know me, you’ll know that I’m going to advocate the importance of work/life balance, of realising and being thankful for the opportunities we already have.

I’m especially going to advocate the importance of setting goals to do the things that make you happy. For me, travel and holidays are a major part of that!

Ask me about the incredible opportunities for 5 star holidays at 1 star prices, available now, with membership of a Worldwide Vacation Club. It’s not time share, you’re not locked in and the prices have to be seen to be believed.

Contact me for a no obligation chat and some more information. It can save you a fortune and create memorable holiday experiences for you and your loved ones.

Until next time, enjoy happiness now and make the most of every day!
