Live the life you want

Posted: Updated:

The clichés about life are endless: love the life you live, don't forget to live while making a living, even Forest Gump's simple words resonated with audiences everywhere: "Life is a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going to get."

While that may be true, it's up to you to live the life you want to live, according to NYU-certified life coach Anna Goldstein. She says one of the biggest mistakes her clients make is thinking that happiness is external. But really it's a state of mind, she says.

If that sounds like mumbo jumbo to you, it's not. Anna says anyone can be happy every single day.

What if you don't enjoy your work? Well, you wouldn't be in the minority. A recent Gallup poll found that a mere 13 percent are happy with their jobs yet most of us have to work in order to make that cash and become successful.

The Oxford Dictionary defines success as "the attainment of popularity or profit."

For some, looking on the bright side isn't easy. While for others, it comes as natural as the sunshine on your face.

    Music is a powerful force that impacts how we feel, think and react to many things in life. Music has healing power, sets a mood and even influences how we eat and shop. Whether you're at the grocery store or shoe shopping, there's usually music on. Music is everywhere and we can listen to whatever we want.
