Joy Happiness Fulfillment

As business owners, we’re often seeking more of each (and money as well, but that tends to be a result of creating a life full of joy, happiness, and fulfillment, not the cause).

In last week’s blog, I shared studies on the importance of self-care and how it improves our physical, emotional, financial, social, and happiness levels.

Ya gotta love studies that show self-care helps improve our well-being as well as our bottom line. That alone increases my happiness quotient.

This week, I bring a touch of the Velvet Hammer to my message.

To increase joy, happiness, and fulfillment (and yes, $$) in our lives, we need to take more of an active, intentional role in creating it.  We need to make it a priority and align our actions with what we want to experience.

It’s not a “Well, that would be nice”, but more of a…

“Oh hell yeah, that’s a non-negotiable” feeling of fulfillment.

We need to deliberately align with and CHOOSE joy, make room for it…and that sometimes means making uncomfortable decisions.

Decisions that also make others uncomfortable, frustrated, and let’s be honest, pissed off.

As a result, we tend to step back and choose their comfort over ours.

Their joy and happiness over ours.

Their success over ours.

It’s not sustainable…or authentic.

Ouch.

Again, making your happiness a priority WILL INCREASE success in every area of your life, even if at first it may ruffle a few feathers.

Taking an active role and being intentional will help you feel more empowered and more in control of your life and business, and less the mercy of circumstances or people.

You’ve got to be willing to sit with the discomfort of choosing your Self, your joy, and your SUCCESS before you’ll be able to confidently and consistently unhook from the reaction and discomfort of others.

Joy, happiness, and fulfillment are on the other side of discomfort.
