Are you ready for this?

What do you think it would take to make you happy, I mean really happy?. Maybe a brand new car, a house. Perhaps it’s a new kitchen, or even that long overdue holiday in Cancun, you’ve been promising yourself?.

The truth is. Most external things are no more than mood boosters. It’s a bit like chocolate, it can boost your mood and make you feel good in the short term but it will never make you happy in the long term.

To be happy in the long term, it requires something so much more than external factors.

Some people look for happiness in a new job, a new partner or even starting a new business. Yes, these things can add to your happiness by boosting your mood, however no external component can make you happy in the long term.

Only you can do that.

secret of happinessThe SECRET of Happiness Lies Here

The absolute key to true lasting happiness is in the following sentence. The SECRET of happiness is all about how you live inside yourself. 

It actually comes down to realisation. The realisation that we are in this life for a very short time. We are just passing through, so in 10, 20, 50 years time, whatever is making you unhappy, or “not happy” probably won’t matter anyway.

Is it actually worth feeling unhappy about something that won’t matter in years to come. Why not “decide” to be happy now and decide, that  instead of “living a little” you are going to “live a lot”

Stress is one of society’s biggest killers.

People get stressed over all kinds of things. Although it often seems like the whole World has gone crazy, if we truly look at what’s important and start to work on ourselves “internally”we will see a very different picture.

Instead of always looking for happiness through “external” things, we will not only change our own outlook, we will also change the way that World looks at us.

Here is the Formula to living a Happy Life:

1.  Be optimistic. Never before in the history of the World has there been so many opportunities. Life is just full of them. If we are gloomy and down all the time, we will miss many of those opportunities. If in our internal radar, we are open and happy to accept new opportunities., they will arrive.

The universe reacts to the vibration of your thoughts and feelings. If you are uptight and full of negative thoughts, your life will be panning out the same way, the Universe is steering you toward the consequences of your thinking each and every day.

It does not matter if you believe in the Law of Attraction or not. It is there working for or against you all the time.

2. Love. Let me begin by saying that as like attracts like, love also attracts love. It begins with YOU. If you want to attract love into your life, you need to work on yourself first and love yourself. If you don’t love yourself, how can you expect others to love you?

It can be the thrill of romantic love or nurturing parental love, whatever love you seek, love provides a comforting sense of companionship that we all need. No man (or woman) is an island. Independence is a good thing to strive for in some areas of life, however  when it comes to love, we all crave and need it.

Many, of course will not admit it.

3. Be Courageous. This is another step forward, toward happiness. I know it is hard for many people to be courageous. For some, just getting through the day is a struggle. However, within Courage lurks Magic.

Courage in a person can drive them to achieve extraordinary things, this can lead to an extraordinary sense of achievement. People long to be recognised. People want and need to feel “worthy”, it’s just human nature.

For many people, courage can mean speaking up and ridding yourself from the “need to please”. For Women, or minorities, it could be standing up for your rights and demand to be treated equally. There are many ways that we can all be courageous, the feeling of standing up for ourselves, being counted and getting rid of that limiting self doubt, can be “liberating”.

4. Be Proactive.. The happiest people are always on the hunt for new experiences.

Do what your heart tells you, not what your head tells you. And…..        Invite Failure!..

I know, you think I’ve gone Mad. To experience true happiness and joy, we need to be proactive in things. Things we like/love doing. And to be good at anything worthwhile, is going to take an element of failure.

It is… so get over it!..

Don’t fear failure, fear never trying.

Failure is not a bad thing. It is a necessary thing, because you can’t have one without the other. People who fail at nothing (or very little) tend to live very ordinary lives, and don’t do much.  Some of life’s biggest failures are some of the World’s most successful people.

Invite more failure by being more proactive, attempting something many times will eventually make you good at doing it, not good at failing at it. If you throw a dart at the bullseye of the dartboard and missed it 500 times, you would eventually hit it, and once you’ve hit it, you will hit it again and again.

No one could imagine running a 4 minute mile until Roger Bannister did this amazing feat on the 6th of May 1954, his time was 3 minutes 59.4 Seconds. Up until then, this was considered “impossible”. Since then, many, many more people have also run a four minute mile .

What changed?.

Belief.

Once you believe it, no one can stop you achieving it (except yourself).

So whatever it is you are trying to achieve, to live a happy life, if someone else has done it, then so can you. If no one else has done it before and it is humanely possible, you can do it too. People are discovering “new things” every day..

5. Have a sense of Humour. Do you love to laugh?. I love to laugh. Every day I find humour in something every day. Did you know laughing is a great cure for many conditions?. If you take life too seriously, it will seem a lot more grey and boring than it really is.

Did you also know that making other people laugh can also make you a lot happier?

I love to see the funny side in almost everything. OK, disease and death are not funny, but most things are. I think most people take themselves far too seriously and they miss out on life’s funny moments.

If you truly want a happy heart, see the funny side of things too.

6. Security.  I’m not talking about the security of never going outside of your comfort zone here. That’s not good. I’m strictly talking about having a good comfortable home with a roof and all those other modern day gadgets. We need good security for good health and of course a good night’s sleep.

We also need money.

Now, I know there is a whole movement of people out there who will tell you that money is Evil and it can’t buy you happiness. Most of these people are probably “broke” or semi broke and I think this is often misinterpreted

The LOVE of money might be evil, however money itself only makes people more of what they already are. If you live in the west you NEED money for houses (security) and clothing. You also need money for the basics in life like food, water, electricity etc.

No one should ever be made to be ashamed to have money. It’s what you do or don’t do with it that makes it good or bad, not the money itself. If you give $20 Million to build a new cancer ward for children, it’s a good thing. If you use it to stick a hundredweight of cocaine up your nose, and kill yourself, then it’s a bad thing..

It’s not the money, it’s the owner of that money.

So, there you have it. The Secret of Happiness. 6 Keys to having a happy life. I would like to add one more as a Bonus. If you help others feel good, you’ll also feel good yourself. Helping others is very good for the soul and is very rewarding.

Seeing others happy is a way of making yourself happy. Something as simple as a smile is contagious.

Peace and prosperity, always.

Les Brown The Early Days

From Wikipedia

Les Brown was born with his twin brother, Wesley, in an abandoned building in a low-income section of Miami, Florida. He was subsequently given up for adoption and adopted by Mamie Brown, a 38-year-old single woman who worked as a cafeteria attendant and domestic assistant.

He was declared “educable mentally retarded” (EMR),  while in grade school. Despite the self-esteem and confidence loss issues this created, he learned how to reach his full potential with the encouragement of his mother and assistance by a helpful teacher in high school, a key point in many motivational speeches he gives now.

Final note: If you can dream it, you can do it, if Les Brown can overcome so many obstacles in his life and end up on the World stage as one of the top motivational speakers, what can you do?.

Why Sleep Deprived Network Marketers Have Got It All Wrong

One of the most commonly touted things online amongst the Network Marketing/Internet Marketing community is that the only way to “WIN” is to constantly hustle.

Coffee is the lifeblood of sleep deprived marketers all over the planet, and it’s quite common to catch us on Facebook at all hours of the day telling the World that to “make money” you’ve got to hustle, hustle, and then hustle some more, even if you don’t feel like it… do it anyway.

sleep depravationThis advice is fatally flawed.

What people don’t realize is, once you neglect the asset (you), you steadily run the risk of putting your entire self out of the game. Maybe for ever.

Here’s an example.

Geoff was a textbook overachiever. He was fiercely ambitious, and determined to make his mark on the World. He constantly traveled, was on the board of Kiva Microfunds, was co founder of a successful investment fund and had been voted Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the year.

One morning, 36yr old Geoff woke up and it felt like a bomb had exploded in his head. He was sweating and frightened. He didn’t feel right. It was like he was experiencing an anxiety attack without the anxiety. His breath was short, his head was buzzing, something was clearly amiss.

After a clear diagnosis, his doctor gave him two choices. He could take medication for the rest of his life to deal with his symptoms, or he could completely disengage from everything for a year or two to recover from his illness.

Geoff had literally, almost worked himself to death, this was the result of three years of sleep deprivation.

*Shattering* The Sleep Stigma

If protecting out asset (ourselves) is so important, why do so many people find it so easy to give up their sleep? The main reason is because many people view sleep as something that gets in the way of their “hustle”, instead of viewing it as a necessity.

Without the right amount of sleep, vital cells will not regenerate. We need sleep in order to function properly.

Also, a lot of people don’t realize that one hour of extra sleep a night can actually result in many more hours of top quality productivity the next day. Cutting corners on sleep is counter productive. Sleep deprived people may work longer but it doesn’t necessarily make them any more productive.

Yes, they are up all hours of the night “hustling”, but are they really just a human time “bomb”waiting to explode.

In a Harvard Business Review by Charles A. Czeisler called “Sleep Deficit, The Performance Killer“, Professor Czeisler likens sleep deprivation to consuming too much alcohol.

Society continues to celebrate people who hustle long and hard without or with very little sleep. Sleep deprivation  kills many people, or makes them very ill. It also continues to kill many people in automobile accidents and  accidents at work.

In the past 5 yrs, over 1.35 million people have been killed in car accidents due to “driver fatigue”. just in the USA alone.

“The general effect of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance is well-known: Stay awake longer than 18 consecutive hours, and your reaction speed, short-term and long-term memory, ability to focus, decision-making capacity, math processing, cognitive speed, and spatial orientation all start to suffer.

Cut sleep back to five or six hours a night for several days in a row, and the accumulated sleep deficit magnifies these negative effects. (Sleep deprivation is implicated in all kinds of physical maladies, too, from high blood pressure to obesity.”)

So what can be done?.

Realize that although we all want to empower ourselves to have this “no limits” lifestyle, and way of thinking. Very few people can actually keep up the whole no, or very little “sleep” thing. And those that do, tend to be building up serious problems down the road for their physical and mental health.

I would personally say this , if what you’re doing cannot be done in the 16 hrs that most people are awake. Are you creating a business or a job with very long hours?  We all do non essential things at times, but some people make a lifelong habit of it.

In my view. The best way to live a long and healthy life, which in essence is really the whole meaning behind the word “Success”. we should learn to balance our work /leisure life better. More sleep makes us more awesome and also more productive.

So, to all my sleep deprived network marketing friends. Remember the sleep you are cutting now, could be costing you dearly in the future, here’s to your health, wealth and future happiness.
