Liza Minnelli thinks the key to a happy life is simply making the right choices.
The 64-year-old singer and actress is highly acclaimed worldwide for her outstanding performances in movies such as 1972 hit Cabaret, for which she won an Academy Award for best actress. Liza’s personal life has been particularly turbulent – having been married and divorced four times as well as battling an alcohol addiction. Liza feels she is in a happy place right now though, and thinks the key to fulfilment is simply incorporating a positive philosophical approach.
“You can choose how you want to be. And if you choose to be unhappy, for whatever reason, then you are,” she explained to the British edition of OK! magazine. “If you choose to be happy, for whatever reason, then you are. It’s your choice. In the long run, it’s your choice. It’s your life.”
The talented star wastes no time dwelling on life’s tougher moments, and thinks the best thing anyone can do is turn to humour in hard times. Liza thinks the decisions we make have a huge impact on our future, and has urged people to follow her mentality.
“I’ve come to believe that if you have a bad memory of something, change it! Rewrite it for yourself and it becomes funny. It’s up to you, how you feel, and what you look at and what you concentrate on,” she added.
