A good eye

 When a Jew accustoms himself to looking at the world with a good eye; and when he’s used to saying good things about every other Jew; and when he tries to judge favorably when he sees something that’s not so good; and when he tries to find a good point in the other person – Hashem gives that Jew the present of happiness.

Rabbi Nachman tells us that in order to merit having happiness, we need to search after the root of good, which can be found inside all of the ‘not good’ that we think we’re looking at.
