Happiness is sought by everyone. We know when we are happy we smile more. We are kind. We offer to help others. We are more creative. We do more. We love more. We attract more of the same into our lives.
Yet, our society isn’t structured so this is achieved.
We are urged to buy things.
Things don’t make us happy. Lots of research backs this up.
We become stressed about work, relationships and money.
Stress brings out the less positive side of us.
We are taught that education is about learning things.
Learning is only half the equation. We have to take action.
We are urged to fit in, be one of the herd.
Each of us is unique and may not run with herd all the time.
We penalised if we are different.
Yet, that is what we are – UNIQUE
There is discrimination in all sorts of ways – fat, Size 0, young, old, gender, hair. If we aren’t a cut out of what ‘we are supposed’ to be, then fingers get pointed.
- Happiness stems from inside us.
- Happiness is living our unique story.
- Happiness is using our strengths to deliver the story
- Happiness is being connected with people
- Happiness is sharing our feelings of love and well being with others
- Happiness is being at one with us as individuals.
Happiness is a journey rather than a one time event. It is what life is about. The journey.
Happy work cultures allow people to be unique. Successful companies are the ones who innovate either steadily or big bang. Innovation stems from creativity. Creativity lives in happy people.
