29 - The Happiness Factor

29 - The Happiness Factor

In this episode we will be deep diving into the topic of Happiness. As the host of the Happy Productive podcast, it is no surprise that this is one of my favorite topics ever. 

Growing up I thought that getting things would make me happy, the job, the money, the car, the house, etc. And while yes those things did bring me happiness, it was short-felt, and not the long-term happiness I was after. It wasn't until I changed my programing and realized that getting things does not bring me happiness, but rather it's the happiness which helps me get the things I wanted. 

 Separating happiness from success is so important because in our culture today we tend to strive for these high levels of success thinking they will bring us happiness. But how many times have you achieved a goal and then thought "why am I still unhappy?" 

While success does not lead to happiness, it is actually the happiness which help us achieve success. So why postpone your happiness until you reach a certain goal? Instead work towards cultivating more happiness into your life because it is when you operate from a place of happiness that you are able to operate at your highest potential, which will in turn make your goals absolutely inevitable. 

Join me in this episode as I deep dive into the very important difference between success and happiness, and how we can access the happiness that is available to us at all times.
