Your goal should never be a successful life. Your goal should be a happy and successful life. There is no real success if you’re not happy. Happiness is not an option. It is a requirement.
I really hope you’re both happy and successful. But if you’re not, you’re far from alone, because most of the people in this country today feel they have neither a successful life nor a happy one. We’ve reached a point where only 33% of Americans are happy. Worldwide, we rank #23 out of the top 50 countries, and dropping.
We have this amazing country, the richest and most powerful country in the world, and yet most Americans are not that happy, nor do they feel all that successful. How can this be?
The truth is that we’ve been sold a very bad bill of goods as to what it is that will make us successful, as to what will make us happy. Over and over we’re told that money adds to happiness.. success is more.. a bigger job, a better house, a nicer car.. that if we work hard, save our money, that someday we’ll get to live the good life.
Well I ask you.. have these things worked?
The truth is that you can be happy, you can be successful. You can be free work at what you want, when you want, live where and how you want and do that a heck of a lot sooner than 65. But to do that, to achieve that, you may well have to change how you’re going about things.. to do what does work.. to learn how to do it, then make the commitment to go and get it.
And that’s what course #3 is all about.. the real keys to a happy and successful life. And when you see what these keys really are it may surprise you because, if you’re like most people, you’ll find that they’re far too often not what you think.. not what you’re been told.
