Let’s face it, we all want to be successful.  We just have different definitions of success- what degree of money, status, relationships, etc.

What I find interesting is the standard belief that once you have more money, a better job or a better partner you will be happy.  The idea being that first comes the one than comes happiness.

You may be interested to find out that there is now some science that shows the exact opposite is true.  (By the way if you didn’t listen to our webinars on Luck & Outcome Thinking or Intentions & Outcome Thinking, go into our STORE tab so you can watch them as they go in depth on this topic.)

There is a new book called The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success & Performance at Work by Shawn Achor that talks about how happiness fuels success more than success fuels happiness.

To create happiness when you don’t have things means you are able to generate those feelings in your brain.  The more you can naturally generate those feelings in your brain, the more your brain will send that positive energy out.  The positive energy you send out then attracts more people and opportunities to you.  Literally they fall in to your lap.

So here is your Take Action for today:

What areas of your life are not the way you want?  What steps can you take to change them?  Whether it be pursuing an old love such as dance or art or being more assertive to go for a new job, do something today to take the steps toward your own happiness.
