How do you define Happiness?
People often think happiness is something around them, something they need to obtain. Like money, health, relationships, homes, cars, people, etc. But happiness is found inside you, deeper than what you think makes up your life or surrounds you. Your happiness is up to you. Your health is up to you. Your abundance is up to you. When you stop looking elsewhere and placing blame outside yourself, you'll find a whole new life inside you!
Imagine an old wooden wagon wheel
You and your life are the outer part of the wheel or the actual round part that rolls along on the ground.
The spokes are the supports that keep the wheel round and the length of the spokes are proportional to your balance for the particular spoke.
Each spoke represents your faith, self-confidence, determination, drive, and motivation but they also represent your family, friends, lifestyle and more.
If one spoke or spokes are longer or shorter than the others you will not “roll through life” in a smooth manner.
You will feel like you have a flat spot in your life. Maybe your entire life is flat? 🙂
Personal development is not a destination but a life long journey
You constantly have to open and expand your mind with books, mentors, coaches and your beliefs or faith.
YOU have to list what's most important to you and measure the length of the spokes in your life to see where you need to work!
Reading is a MUST in life.
The vast majority of people quit reading books or advancing their training after high school or college and it's a tragedy for people today!
You have to set a daily goal to get at least 30 minutes of personal development via reading a book or listening to an audio or working with a mentor.
It's so easy now with books on tape and now the new Amazon Kindle. Click to visit the bookstore on our site to get started!
