A weekly message to strengthen your CORE and develop your resolve.

Do you have a wait problem?

waiting to feel good about yourself until you lose weight,  


waiting to be happy until you find the right mate


waiting to do the things you enjoy until you have more time


waiting to feel satisfied until you have enough money


A “wait” problem is all about not feeling happy because you are waiting for a future success to actualize in your life and bring you happiness. Waiting is a major glitch in our happiness formula. In fact, waiting to be happy is actually sabotaging the success you are working so hard to attain!


And here is why…Your external world does not determine your happiness. Sean Achor, a leader in happiness research and author of the book, The Happiness Advantage, found that only 10 percent of our long-term happiness is predicted by our external world and a whopping 90 percent (yes, 90%!) is from how our brain processes our external world.


Here is the REAL SkinnyHappiness is the precursor to greater success and happiness, not the other way around!   


Clearly its time to rearrange our happiness formula and turn our approach inside out! This week focus on making two important brain processing shifts: 


#1. No more equating a future success with happiness  


#2. Let go of the idea that happiness is predictive of your external world.


Happiness is an inside job. In fact, Id say its at the CORE of what we do- not because of what we achieve!


O this is a happy day indeed!!
