The Pursuit of Happiness

Decades ago, our founding fathers wrote these words: ". . . endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness"  So how are we as a country doing with that happiness part?  More specifically how are we as individuals doing with that happiness part?  I know, it's a rhetorical question.  We can improve on this area dramatically if we want to.

Are some people lucky, have good fortune or something else?

Most of us know people who seem to be more fortunate than others.  People often say (or at least think) these people are merely lucky or fortunate.  Every wonder why some people always seem to: be “lucky”; get the “breaks”; or “succeed”? Well luck has little or nothing to do with it. For example, were Wayne Gretzky, Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali & Rudy Ruettiger just lucky?  It wasn’t mere talent either, many are as talented as they were.  These guys did something special to be what they were & we can too.
