          Is Happiness a Right or a Privilege?

          September 01, 2002

          Jay Leno posed the question to Dr. Phil and you’ll be happy to know, Dr. Phil had this to say:

          Happiness is neither a right nor a privilege — it’s a choice. You need to expand your definition of happiness. Sometimes we think being happy is just giggling and having fun, but you can be happy by just being content. The feeling you get after a good days work, the sense of accomplishment, the good tired, thats happiness.

          If you are in touch with your authentic self, really doing what you love, using your skills and abilities, and living consistently with your moral values and beliefs, you will be happy. Happiness can be had any day of the week.
