Unhappiness is a disease that is plaguing our personal lives and it is becoming rampant in the workplace. Did you know that the quality of happiness that you have right now in your life is actually determined by the mindset you have created over a period of time.
Happiness is a choice! You can choose to adjust your attitude and elevate your overall happiness by choosing to change your current mindset, no matter what your conditions or circumstances. You have to let go of any outcome and learn to “enjoy the process”, appreciate the climb and the journey. Now, more than ever, people seem to be having a much more difficult time balancing their lives and there never seems to be enough time to get everything done. This is what leads to stress levels becoming overwhelming and that “inner demon” of self-doubt, uncertainty and fear that can start to create a very dar and dangerous mindset.
No matter what you do, or who you are, whether learning or teaching, if you are having fun and enjoying the process, the odds are you will achieve the desired outcome. You must find the joy in all of the things you do - “the process”, or journey, is YOUR LIFE!! It is your God-give right and obligation to enjoy every step you take toward achieving your goals. If you are consistently making the choice to enjoy yourself during the process of whatever it is that you are trying to achieve, then the chances are that you will get there even faster than you ever dreamed possible.
We simply have to be conscious of the mindsets we create that defy happiness in our lives. Be present in the moment - the past is past and the future has not yet happened - what’s important is the HERE AND NOW, - this very moment! So many people think, “when i get married, when i buy the house, if only I had the money “, then I can be happy. I call “BS”!! That is a BELIEF SYSTEM that needs to be smashed to pieces ASAP!! Statements that focus on what we lack in the present, inevitably bring more of what you are focusing on and ultimately destroy your chance of enjoying the moment you are in. “Where your focus goes, your energy flows”...Ralph Waldo Emerson.
You cannot wait for happiness. It can only be experienced in the present, in the moment of whatever it is that you are trying to achieve right now. I am not saying that you can’t plan for the future, set goals, or anything like that. People who consistently enjoy the process not only reap the benefits of achieving their goals, but they appreciate how they have gotten there and the person that they have become along the way. When you convince yourself that your happiness is dependent upon something that has to happen in the future it is extremely difficult to enjoy the present. Remember, the present is a GIFT and we must never forget that!
It is your responsibility and choice to shift into a happier mindset. Be grateful for what you have, don’t give energy to the things you don’t have. Every single day bless all that life has given you rather than cursing what it life hasn’t given you. It is all PERSPECTIVE! It is a choice on how you deal with all of the crap that life throws at you every day. When you are able to choose to be happy and find the good in everything, you not only attract more happiness to you, but you take it wherever you go and the world will be a better place because of it!

Remember, you only have one...so ROCK THIS LIFE NOW!!
