When it comes to JOY IN THE JOURNEY, or personal happiness, do you feel excited about your life and find peace of mind NOW, not waiting for the future? Are you excited about the day ahead..or are you dreading it?
Often, we have given up on feeling JOY – but why? We get caught up in a life of expectations and comparison. The #1 destroyer of personal happiness is unmet expectations. We live in our minds and tolerate our current reality. We forget we have a CHOICE in how we want to live our life, who we want to spend our time with, and get stuck in a cycle of obligation. When we focus on expectations, we can end up feeling empty, we focus on things we cannot control, we question why people don’t behave as we think they should, we resent reality…the list goes on.
I would like to share SUCCESS TIP and Thought Habit #2: JOY IN THE JOURNEY!
Why is JOY IN THE JOURNEY so important? If we look at personal happiness as a choice, we have all been gifted with ‘clay in our hands.’ These are our unique talents, gifts, life experiences. Do you own your clay and choose your focus and reality each day? Or are you holding yourself hostage to someone or something?
What keeps us from achieving our JOY? It is usually one or more the following: We are stuck in our head. We over think and worry obsessively about things we cannot control or we avoid changing our life circumstances. We live in resentment and focus on unmet expectations.There is a constant focus on comparison and being hard on oneself becomes our key focus.We avoid, procrastinate, and associate pain with making necessary changes that will bring us happiness.
How can we achieve our JOY and HAPPINESS – follow these SECRETS to SUCCESS:
1-Follow your heart, listen to your emotions, trust intuition as a guide to decisions.
2-Release expectations and live life on your terms. Compete with yourself and no one else!
3-Be kind to yourself, be your own best friend, practice quieting your mind and self care as a habit and a daily must.
4-Practice living in the NOW. That means release the focus on the past, and resist the temptation to worry about the future.
JOY in the JOURNEY takes personal accountability. If you cannot hold yourself accountable to focus on living a life of happiness vs. obligation, hire a Coach! Coaching works! Knowing you have someone on YOUR side can make all the difference in the world!
