How pleased are you with your current life? How happy are you today? If you are blah, just coasting, just subsisting and just trying to make it through the day, to get somewhere, then the odds are that tomorrow will be more of the same. The odds are good that you will be at the level you are at today without intervention.
In order to have a better tomorrow, you must learn to be happy today. If you are not happy now, you will not be happy “when.” When you get the bonus, the new job, the big deal, the vacation, the car, the girl or the divorce. This is a little secret no one wants to tell you, mostly because they don’t know it. Yes, you may have a momentary euphoria or excitement when you get what you were pursuing but it is short-lived. It will last a varying length of time but soon enough it wears off. The resulting let down from it can actually take you to new lows. Everything else remained the same because your thinking stayed the same.
However, if you learn to be happy now, and practice this, then you will always be happy. You will take it with you wherever you go! The only real way to do that is to be happy with yourself. From within yourself, for yourself and for your life and all aspects of it. When you accept, love, respect and know yourself and give gratitude in all of it, you gain freedom. A freedom you have never known before.
It can be somewhat intimidating to think about just being happy. If I could do that, you think, of course I would, but my boss and my job and the pressures and the kids and this spare tire…
We aren’t taught how to live in happiness, to choose happiness. That is why I am here to coach my clients, to give them some guidance and even some truth they may not want to look at that holds major breakthrough for them.
