What I’m going to share with you today is perhaps the single most important element of success – and it’s rarely, if ever, talked about!
Now, truth be told, those who are already successful have this piece in place and it’s likely it was always there, so they never had to reach for it.
So, when you go to a seminar, or read a book, or tune into a webcast, teleseminar, or webinar, you’re very, very unlikely to hear even a single word about this all-important topic!
You may be wondering how much this is going to cost after a build-up like that, right? Well, you can relax. This is not something you buy, or even can buy. It’s one of those things that you feel.
And no, you can’t get it on Amazon, so don’t ask me for a link!
You’ll know it when you see it, and if, like me, you observe successful people, you’ll see it in every single one of them.
So what is this elusive thing? Well, it’s happiness. Yup, it’s about being happy about where you are and with what you’re doing.
What you never see is somebody who hates their life and hates what they do and are also successful. It just does not work that way.
This can sound a little rudimentary, but in fact, it’s the literal foundation to success.
In other words, nobody wants to be around a person who’s unhappy. Nobody wants to be in a relationship with them, buy from them, or even have them on their team if they can at all avoid it.
Yet, on the flip side, a happy/positive person is in-demand, is attractive to others, and has no trouble getting ahead.
Once you know this little “trick” you’ll begin to notice it everywhere you look.
So the key is find ways to feel happy. Now, nobody is happy all the time, that would be unrealistic, but you could find ways to increase the time that you are feeling happy.
If you’re working at a job that does not make you happy most of the time, you could begin to look for the things about your job that you do appreciate.
Maybe it’s just a person you work with, or the fact that your job is close to home, or that you have a great boss. It doesn’t matter what you use as your excuse to be happy, what matters is that you find a way to feel happy.
What you’ll notice is that your happiness changes everything around you.
I did a little “happiness experiment” a few weeks ago and what I did was end each day thinking of things that happened that I really appreciated. Then every morning I did the same exercise and included some of the things that I was excited about that day.
I’d tell you what happened, but you wouldn’t believe it. Yes, it was that good, that amazing, and it changed my life!
Everything began to improve – from my relationships, to attracting new clients, to making more sales, meeting new friends, and of course I started feeling better and better each day.
And this all happened with me doing exactly what I had been doing with the one exception of deliberately working on feeling happier each day.
Now this has become a habit, a thing I look forward to doing each day. In many ways, it’s the most important thing on my list of things to do each day!
I encourage you to try this for just 14 days and see what happens.
