How happy are you today? If you were gauging this on a 0-10 rating, with 10 being highest, where would you be on that scale?
Unfortunately, what often happens in the strive to achieve the next step and then on to the following step … you forget to enjoy the journey. In doing so you end up working against who you are meant to be and you’re not congruent in what you’re doing. It’s all ends up a struggle. You believe it has to be difficult. It doesn’t.
I do need to clarify that this doesn’t mean you won’t have to work at something or put in many hours to achieve what you want as often you will. But when you’re congruent in what you are doing, you will be doing it without it feeling as though it’s taking any effort. Everything just flows.
I recognized in my own work, striving to get to the next step isn’t the way it should be … and so I made a conscious effort to change my attitude. I decided to build a business based on wealth, health and happiness. Try this exercise to see what a difference it will make to your everyday well-being:
Exercise: Check out your happiness level. If one a scale of 1-10 with 1 being low and 10 being high, rate how happy you feel right now in what you’re doing. Now apply this happiness rating to other areas of your life and business? What is this telling you? Are you congruent? If you are, then wealth, health and happiness will already be flowing into your life. If not, then check out your attitude. How can you make this change positively?
Making time for happiness is essential. After all, you only live once.
