“Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties.” Helen Keller
Resolutions are everywhere right now! They are in kitchens, in cars, in offices, in gyms, in churches… it is the perfect time to resolve aspirations.
I recently read a blog post by Business Coach Kristen Elizabeth and part of her post got me thinking… we resolve to do things that in turn will make us happy, but do we ever resolve to “be happy”? Here is part of her post:
- Happy people have a knack for getting what they want faster than unhappy people
- Happy people experience higher levels of business success in shorter amounts of time
- Happy people have healthier immune systems and more emotional energy
- Happy people have better relationships and less stress
Success, with your family, friends, clients, coworkers, etc all are impacted by your level of happiness. It is determined by your focus and your positivity. If you are looking to become more successful this year, do what is your passion and decide to be happy.
HERE is a fun Ted resource by Shawn Achor, inspiring the idea that happiness is connected to success and wellness… everything you’re resolving to change this new year.
That’s my thought for today!
Have a happy 2016!!
