THE CLUES TO REACH THE CENTRE OF THE MAZE (OF HAPPINESS)
Our moments of lucidity usually occur
when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy or dissatisfied.
As in those moments, driven by our dissatisfaction,
is when we leave the beaten path and begin to explore
different ways of doing something, or more accurate answers.
M. SCOTT PECK
Somehow I can’t believe that there are any heights that can’t be scaled by a man
who knows the secret of making dreams come true.
This special secret, it seems to me, can be summarized in four C’s:
Curiosity, Confidence, Courage and Constancy; and the greatest of these is Confidence.
When you believe in a thing, believe in it all the way, implicitly and unquestionably.
It’s never too late to be what you might have been.
Decide what you want,
decide what you are willing to exchange for it.
Establish your priorities and go to work.
H. L. HUNT
If you observe a really happy person,
They might be shaping a ship,
or writing a symphony, educating their children,
planting dahlias in their garden,
or looking for dinosaur eggs in the Gobi Desert.
They are not looking for happiness
like they are willing to find the account of a necklace
that has slipped under the radiator.
W. BERAN WOLFE
Some are willing to do anything,
but to live here and now.
We have forgotten that our only goal is to live
and live is what we do every day
and at all hours of the day
We achieve our real goal if we live…
The days are fruits and our role is to eat them.
Happiness is a direction,
not a place.
SYDNEY J. HARRIS
is not in the things you do
but in how you do

In ‘The Maze of Happiness’, one of my most cherished books, my friend Francesc Miralles –co-author– and I decided to include as an epilogue a selection of aphorisms about happiness, good attitude, perseverance, and other core values in the so-called pursuit of happiness.
Ariadna’s story is a fable of self-knowledge, the metaphor for how personal fulfillment can be what we call “being happy”. I invite you to read it and share with me what it does suggest to you.
