To introduce an experiment, I asked my students if anyone had found any money in the last month? Their ears perked up. They looked at me to see if they needed to call the principal because i had cracked up.
I asked again, an not a single student raised their hand.
Everyone wants happiness, but very few find it. The reason is that they are not actively looking for happiness. We are going to test this theory.
You assignment is to for the next week actively look for money. Obviously, you may not steal it. (I always point that out because for them it is not so obvious, and they would like to say that I told them to steal.) Again I got the crazy looks.
In every class some students always find money.
Do you look for happiness? Where do you look? Do you look in the newspaper? Do you look to your spouse? Do you look to nature? Do you look to a pet?
Where you look is not important. What is important that you start to look and keep on looking.
