Have you ever had that lucid moment when you realized you just couldn't continue with what you were doing for one more day? In relationships, in life, at work?
What do you think about this statement?
Just because you're good at something doesn't mean that's what you should be doing for the rest of your life.
What if we defined what success looked like for us in the end result, like how we'll feel, the environment we'll be in, the people we'll surround ourselves with, then defined our lives? Do you think the outcome would be different?
If we only think about it as a destination, we'll never actually get there.
My guest on this week's podcast, Manuela Pauer, says reaching a goal will bring you happiness - a milestone with a burst of happiness, but if you concentrate on each step working towards your journey, that's the part that brings you happiness. You'll have more lasting happiness. As you live your life, along the way, give yourself credit for what you've achieved, then enjoy the progress.
I think a lot of us forget to do this. We forget to celebrate, to reflect, and to embrace what we've achieved. We're so focused on the next thing that we only give success a quick thought, then move on to the next goal. Hence the burst.
The bursts are good, but why not go after the steady stream?
Listen in to our conversation to found out how you can get closer to the steady stream of happiness, every day. Experiencing it more often is the goal!
