Right now, how happy are you?
How motivated are you ?
What are you motivated for?
How successful do you feel?
or Are you unhappy, unmotivated and not feeling too successful?
Right now, most of us are simply living our lives, doing the things and thinking the things we normally do. Not really giving much thought to our success, our joyfulness or motivation.
Moments of experiencing joy, happiness, motivation and a feeling of success are the very moments that keep us moving forward in life. They keep us reaching for the future with hope and anticipation.
As we think on these moments to find reason for them, most people will give something or someone else recognition as the cause. For example you may say; My grandchildren always make me feel joyous. I am most happy when I am dancing. Seeing my customers smile makes me feel successful. I am very sure you have your own examples, right?
Well imagine this. There are people that find no joy in their family, job or themselves. There are people that thrive in controversy and drama while not receiving any happiness or motivation from the involvement. There are those that if you handed them a $100 bill for no reason at all they would complain that the places they go don't take such large bills. Know anyone like this? Are you like this? I sure hope not.
So, what's the difference in these people and the rest of us AND what's the difference between the rest of us and those super motivated, joyful and successful people?
Can you remember the happiest day of your life? When you reflect back on that day what happens without you even thinking about it? I bet your smiling right now, aren't you? That's right you smile, mainly because that memory of feeling such joy is something you never forget. Now can you remember feeling sad on that day? Chances are you have forgotten if you actually did. Why, because feelings of joy, happiness and success are much much more powerful and lasting that negative emotions.
Believe it or not what you are feeling right now is a choice. I bet on that happiest day you were so determined to be happy that noting could get past that emotion. I bet there were things that happened on that day, that on another day might have set you off on a tirade. The reason those moments did not upset you and have been long forgotten are because YOU CHOSE TO BE HAPPY and that superseded everything else!
Happiness, joy, motivation and success are a choice and not the results of circumstance!
Your grandchildren bring you joy not because they force joy upon you but because you choose to be joyful thinking of or being with them. Dancing makes you feel happy not because its a requirement but because you choose to experience happiness when you dance. And you don't feel successful because your customers are smiling at your good service but because you choose to find and feel successful from their reaction to your work.
For those not enjoying the feelings of joy, happiness, success or motivation to do something special, it is a result of them choosing not to find those emotions in their daily life. For most of us those emotion are only moments in our life because we choose Not to make that choice everyday, but rather choose to experience life as it come and not as we would want to experience it if we had a choice......oh, wait! We do have a choice! And those super happy, motivated and successful people? Guess what, they have chosen to be that way...it was not result of anything they did beyond making that choice.
You are only as joyful, successful or motivated as you CHOOSE to be right now.
