In the year 2015, I made a conscious decision to change my Life.
Having spent some 30 years creating a life of financial stability, I realized there was a major piece missing. ENJOYMENT.
Do you recall the emotion of excitement you felt when you scored your first goal in business?
Perhaps it was your first job, your first client, or your first promotion?
Do you remember how it felt to achieve, from your own self-effort?
I wonder if, like me, you were unaware at the time of this success that your body/brain physiology had produced hormones - flooding your body with feel-good emotions, unknowingly creating a craving for more?
Yes, the desire for growth is a natural part of evolution, however if left unchecked it can become your enemy – it can become counterproductive to your success & your happiness.
I invite you to ask yourself truthfully…when did Life become less fun for you?
Do you recall the exact moment in time, or did the feeling of dissatisfaction creep up on you, like it did to me?
HOW DID I REDISCOVER HAPPINESS?
So how did I rediscover happiness?
I returned to the level of enjoyment that had led to my first success in business -
“I did what brought me Joy.”
Taking purposeful steps to remove myself from ownership in a multi-million dollar business, to start afresh, was simple but not easy.
Dealing with cognitive dissonance; old thought patterns; habitual responses; negative reactions from those in my life; looks of disbelief; and the huge one…FEAR, were all steps on the journey to where I am today.
These days I LOVE MY LIFE, because I returned it to the level of enjoyment I knew exists.
For the record, I am just an ordinary person, who consciously decided to start viewing things from an extraordinary position.
Nowadays, sharing the pathway to happiness is my life's work, and my life's purpose. I understand there is plenty of room for everyone, and it is my duty to share what I have been gifted.
