We coach a lot of people who may be focused on very specific goals that
they are trying to achieve. Many of them believe that when they achieve
the goal they will be happy. When I pay off the mortgage, when the kids
have graduated, when I get a new boss, when I lose 25 pounds, then I will
be happy! The danger with this approach is that people can get into the
habit postponing happiness until everything on their list is checked off.
Due to their incredible ability to add things to the list it is
ultimately impossible. Think about the day after you die: There will
still be a to-do list on your desk.
We lead a game called the Happy Healthy Wealthy Game. It makes a
difference in peoples lives. We could have called it the Unhappy, Sick
and Broke Game but a lot of people have those things covered so we took a
different approach. I sometimes wonder if people dont give it the
consideration that it deserves because it has Happy in the title. Is it
ok to be happy? I can tell you that some people have trouble telling me
in a coaching session what makes them happy. Some people didnt grow up
with people who modeled happiness. Some people are disgusted by people
who are happy.
Here is the deal! Happiness is a choice! You can choose to be happy or
unhappy. You can even think you have no choice but that in itself is a
choice. What will you choose? Your choice will on many days be affected
by the things you focus on. If you get up in the morning thinking about
the stress, the pressure, the problems and the things that are not going
your way, you choice might be unhappiness. If you focus on gratitude for
what you have and the things that make you happy that you have planned
for your day you might be happy.
We have found in the game that when someone changes their level of
happiness it often dramatically changes their success in the area of
Health and Wealth. An increased level of happiness can have a positive
impact on your immune system, it can increase your energy and creativity.
I hope you will decide to be happy. If this has been a challenge for you
or you would like to work on taking your happiness to a new level please
contact us to arrange a complimentary coaching session or consider
playing the Happy Healthy Wealthy Game.
