Inspiration and lessons for your leadership journey!
“It is better to travel well than to arrive.”
How satisfied are you with your life? How happy are you from day to day? If I were to ask you, “Is your predominant state of being more positive or negative?” How would you answer?
Many years ago, it didn’t feel good to be me. I had happy, even ecstatic moments; but, my overwhelming state of being was pretty miserable. I had an idea of where and what I wanted and I was definitely moving in that direction, but I wasn’t traveling very well. Overall, the journey wasn’t fun, exciting, joyful, or inspiring.
That has all changed dramatically! I have achieved a new, sustainable happiness – and you can, too!
The challenge isn’t so much about ‘getting’ the right job or things or people or wealth in your life (although I admit, they can definitely help), it’s really about you.
Research shows that the circumstances of our lives only contribute about 10% to our happiness and genetics or a ‘set-point range’ about 50 percent. That leaves 40% of the determinants of your happiness to intentional activity – what you choose to think and do.
High School basketball coach, Peter Morales, in El Paso, Texas and an opposing team mate, Jonathan Montonyas, had some ideas about creating happiness, too. Check out today’s video and find out what many sport organizations (and businesses) have lost about what it means ‘to win.’
You can also check out Chapter 4, The Highway of Happiness, in A Travel Guide to Leadership.
Let’s focus this week on making it more about the journey than the destination.
Let’s travel well.
