I am in charge of how I feel and today I am choosing happiness
Have you ever caught yourself thinking, “after ______, then I’ll be happy”
“After I get a raise, than I’ll be happy.”
“After I finish this project, than I’ll be happy.”
“After I lose 10 pounds, than I’ll be happy”
For many of us the thought of future success is what motivates us.
For example, “Work is really shitty, and I hate my boss, and I only being paid pennies…. after I get a raise though, then I’ll be happy. I’ll finally be able to pay all my bills without worrying.”
While sure, in some twisted way, it motivate us now, is it possible that we could actually be setting our for a less successful life?
I recently read an article by
Dorian Innes about about what he calls the “Gun-To-Head” test, and thought it was pure genius.
In a nut shell the “Gun-To-Head” test is all about helping you make those tricky (or maybe not so tricky) decisions.
Picture this – you hate your boss. S/he is a real piece of work and you are on the brink of quitting. You want to speak up and have a conversation with him/her, but on the other hand you feel like it’s pointless.
So what do you do?

What? I know, crazy. Just a minute ago it seems like we were nursing our New Years hangovers!
You know what else that two-weeks benchmark means?
“Happiness is not a station you arrive at, it’s a way of living”
