WHAT’S THE ANSWER FOR LASTING HAPPINESS? PROGRESS
If you aren’t growing, you are dying. It turns out that happiness that is true and lasting is quite simply this: progress. Progress = Happiness! If you are growing and giving, you will be happy. If you are moving forward in your life, if you are progressing personally, professionally, emotionally, spiritually — you will be happy. It is only in stagnation that we wilt.
Remember the adage “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” We all know it’s true, so the real question is what have you been meaning to do that you’re afraid to tackle? What journey are you longing to take but can’t seem to get started? Is it the journey to lose 10 pounds, start a new business, renew a relationship with a loved one? If you set a goal, and move towards it, baby step by baby step, it is in that movement, that progress, that you will find true happiness.
What can you do to start along the path to progress and move toward happiness tomorrow? One technique is to create a new set of rituals that will start you on the path of progress. Once you start down that path, you’re certain to find the joy you desire and deserve.
