My number one daily habit is to give myself permission to be happy. It’s physical and mental; it’s my diet, physical activity, and emotional state. That’s all tied together.

One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself, and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals.
We’re so afraid of each other… Colour, wealth, these things that don’t really matter still play too much of a role in how we see one another. And it’s sad, because the thing that least defines us is the colour of our skin.
I was probably 10 or 11 when I saw that, and sort of started thinking, You know what? Marriage is an option. Having a family is an option. And going to school and getting your education and building your career is another really viable option that can lead to happiness and fulfillment.

But you know, happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.
Be happy with what you have and are, be generous with both, and you won’t have to haunt for happiness
When I hold you in my arms and I feel my finger on your trigger I know no one can do me no harm because happiness is a warm gun.
I’ve found happiness in my work, but not in my private life. I had to take from my private life to make my public life successful. I had to make a lot of sacrifices. I was happy in Cardiff. I had a great time. Every Thursday there was a factory club; darts, dancing. I was happy until success entered my life, and then it was all downhill. Success spoilt me. It took away my happiness. My success became a barrier with my family. They couldn’t relate to me, and I couldn’t relate to them.
