I Don’t Want to be Successful? I Just Want to Be Happy.

I Don’t Want to be Successful?  I Just Want to Be Happy.

Really? I mean, really?

THIS pisses me off when was it decided that success and happiness can’t coincide with each other?

Let me ask you, what’s your definition of success?

Now my friend, thankfully, who posted this on Facebook said when she’s happy she is successful, which is brilliant!

However, what I do see are a lot of people who give up on their dreams because they believe success is hard work that will take them away from their family and take away their time.

What if happiness is a choice? What if success is a choice? Let me give you a hint – they both are a choice.  Right now, despite what’s in front of you, you can choose to be happy.  Right now, despite what’s in front of you, you can choose to be a success.

What if both are in your reach right now?  Right this moment. It just all comes down to how you define both and the path to both. I was talking to a private client the other day and we were discussing how things were not being achieved.  He wasn’t doing what he thought he should be doing.  Why wasn’t he doing what he thought he should be doing?  Because somewhere in the back of his mind he had defined it as hard work.  Really, do we want to do things that are hard?   The answer for most of us is ‘no’ but we won’t admit that.  Why?

We all glorify hard work because it is honourable. We also get all kinds of pats on the back if we’re doing hard work.   What ends up happening, and I see this ALL THE TIME, is that we learn to make everything a struggle.  We learn to make everything way more difficult than it needs to be.

What if we could all start patting ourselves on the back for making things really easy? What if we made success easy? You can.  Today.  Right now.  You can decide today in your job that you are a success.  You can decide that the work you do automatically makes you a success.  You can decide to be a success because you decide to follow what lights you up.  You can decide that you’re a success because you love.  You can decide you’re a success because you are loved.

You can decide you are a success because you are you. You can decide you are a success because you choose to be happy no matter what. Success doesn’t have to be about money. It doesn’t have to be about where you live and how much stuff you have.  It doesn’t have to be about a title or even how many people you have helped.

You can also choose in this moment to be happy, no matter what. And, I truly mean ‘no matter what’.   In any moment when you find yourself frustrated or angry or defeated – what if you just chose for 10 seconds to be happy instead?

What would it take to do that? Like Nike says ‘just do it’. Reach for a better feeling thought that makes you happy.  Cherish for 10 seconds and then you can decide to go back to feeling whatever negative feeling it was that you were having.

At that point you can ask yourself what the value is of continuing to feel grumpy, frustrated, angry, whatever.

Doing this exercise can change your life. Why?  Because you start to realize you have a choice in every moment.  YOU have the choice of whether to feel happy or not.  YOU have a choice to feel like a success or not.
