The ultimate happiness formula is trust in God. This trust gives you peace of mind. This trust transforms your life and adds a spiritual dimension to all that you do. Sincere trust in God makes you wealthy. If others just think you have this, it's like others just thinking that you are wealthy. If you say the right words but don't yet feel them, it's like saying, "I am wealthy," before attaining actual wealth.
How do you know when you need to increase your trust in God? When you worry about the future, hear the inner message: "Trust in God." When you are intimidated by another person, hear the message: "Trust in God." When you are upset about the way something turned out, hear the message: "Trust in God." When you don't attain what you wished for, hear the message: "Trust in God."
(From Rabbi Pliskin's "Happiness",p.47)
