The recipe for a happy life

The recipe for a happy life

What’s your recipe for a happy life? If you’re like most people it will be something like … if I have enough money, I’ll be able to do want I want and then I’ll be happy.

I call it the ‘have, do, be’ recipe and I’m afraid to say that it hardly ever results in true happiness. The recipe that does bring happiness has the same ingredients, but in entirely the opposite order – ‘be, do, have’.

If you can learn to control how you are, then you will tend to do the right things and you will have what you need. What you do has to flow from who you are. It’s starts from the inside out.

Think about how this might transpire in a work context. If you get yourself in the right emotional state by carefully controlling your biology (be) and give (do) an inspiring presentation, you will succeed in convincing the financiers that you’re worthy of investment (have).

For more on how to develop a deeper understanding of yourself (the ‘I’ dimension) read 4D Leadership

    I am a big fan of yours ever since I’ve watched the tedtalk, Dr. Alan Watkins. I will apply this immediately. I have registered my first incorporation a little over a month ago and will be selling within 2 months. It’s teachings from people like you which guide me along my way and allow me to shave off years of hardship in attaining experience that I would of had to learn the hard way.
