How to be successful?

To me, reappraisal is one of the most important skills needed for success in life, the other being the ability to observe your mental processes.

Humor is a type of cheap reappraisal. You can reappraise by reinterpreting an event, or reordering your values, or normalizing an event, or repositioning your perspective.

The key is to make sure you solve the right problem, which means the most useful problem, not just the most interesting one.

How to be successful?

You have to see everything just the way it is without distortion. If you can see everything just the way it is, life becomes a play, you can play it joyfully, you can play it well. If you can play it well, people will say you are successful.
