Are you happy?
I mean truly happy. Do you relish each and every day? Do you wake up motivated and ready to reach your goals each morning?
I bet a lot of you are answering…”Not quite yet.”
That is the answer I get from a lot of people when I ask that original question. Why aren’t people happy…yet? Usually, it is because they are working towards a goal or success in some field and they won’t feel happy until they reach that.
…or so they think.
The reality is that happiness right NOW is important. Happiness is actually a predictor of success – not the other way around. Happy people are more likely to reach their goals than unhappy people – there is now a body of research to back that hypothesis up.
So what does all this mean?
It means…we are doing it wrong. For years we have chased success hoping it would make us happy, when all along we should have been chasing happiness – because it will help make you successful!
This is pretty eye opening to most people. We have spent a lifetime being taught the opposite. The good news is, there is a wide variety of happiness books and products being released these days. The “happiness” revolution is upon us.
