Happiness Is Just Around The Corner.

How is 2018 going for you so far? Have you ditched the New Years Resolutions already? If you have don't feel bad, it takes 28 days to form a new habit (not 21 like some might think) in 21 days the habit is formed, 28 days it's ingrained in your DNA. So here's my question to you...In 2018 do you want more time to do the things you enjoy? Do you want more time to spend with the people you love? If I could grant you one wish for 2018 what would it be? What if I said you could have it, all of it! All that is required is that you start living your life and stop giving a fuck! Not one ounce or gram of fuck shall you give in 2018. Repeat and replay until it's in your DNA. Are you horrified or offended? Don't be, research has shown that people who swear are actually really intelligent beings. Now getting back to not giving a fuck. Do you have a hens/stag party, wedding in 2018 that you don't want to attend? Will it cost you too much money that could go towards something you actually enjoy a cookery class, gym membership, holiday you so badly need because you are burnt out from 2017? If you don't want to go then simply say so. R.S.V.P - NO. There is the rule if it's your best friend or close family member you would be an asshole/bitch if you didn't show up but for colleagues or distant relatives no matter what your mum or aunt Hilda says you are having a much-needed spa break that weekend and you are simply not available. Do you hate your job or your boss? Update your CV and resume, start sending it out to recruitment agencies, apply for positions online, reach for the stars and don't give a fuck about the reasons you are uploading your CV in the first place. Job done! Are you in a relationship that is sucking the life clean out of you? A bit of pain today, heaps of gain later on down the road. Sharing your life and space with someone who does not love or appreciate you is not going to make you happy. Putting yourself first, doing the things that make you happy with the people you love will. Are you frequently being asked out for coffee with the intent of "picking your brain"? The answer to that question is you are too busy working with and for clients that actually pay for your time.

Commit To Things That Will Make You Happy

In 2018 I am committing to only doing things that make ME happy and that will enrich my life in some way. Are you with me? No more dragging myself to places or events that I don't want to go too with people who really don't give a toss about me. Is that really possible? Absolutely! If I get invited to an event {that's not a close family member, friend or won't enhance my business} the first thing I'm going to ask myself is this. On a scale of 1-5, how happy will this make me? Anything below 4, I simply won't be going or offering help or assistance. Do you feel undervalued or unappreciated after giving your time and energy to a person or project? Do you feel emotionally drained, exhausted and let down? If the answer is yes then it's time to start sorting out your fucks accordingly in 2018. We only have a limited amount of fuck to give and those fucks should be reserved for family, friends and people who actually appreciate and value us. The truth is advertising agencies and clever marketing has us chasing shit we don't really need. They have us feeling crap about ourselves. We think if we have a bigger house, better car, fancy holidays and flash friends we will be happier. Eh no we won't. What we have is enough, we are enough.

Lose The Sense Of Entitlement

2017 has taught me we are not entitled to anything. Not a nice house, car, holidays or amazing friends. These things are not a given we have to work hard to achieve them and in some cases, we have to suffer. We have to endure suffering and struggle otherwise we don't appreciate or value those things. If you want to be happy don't depend on other people to provide the things that contribute to your happiness and well being, you are not entitled to them - Go get them for yourself! When you experience the hardship and the struggles it takes to obtain those nice things don't whine, moan or complain about it because everyone who has gone before you and who will come after you have had to fight for the things you feel you are entitled too or take for granted. When you finally get to a place in your life whereby you feel like you have enough you learn to limit your fucks to people, places and the things that actually count and you discover what it feels to be happy.

Ditch The Goals

What are your goals for 2018? What do you hope to achieve? Here's an idea, don't set any goals for 2018. I know what you are you thinking, I've lost the plot completely, I write about The Secret To Success , Overcoming Obstacles and my iconic tried and tested 7 Steps To Creating A Life Of Freedom . My challenge to you for 2018 is this... I challenge you to fail. Give up on all your hopes and dreams. Become vulnerable, scared, fearful and open to new possibilities. It's only when we are willing to release all of these things can we create a new way of living and being. If you want something badly, be prepared to lose it. Be prepared to give it away. When you relinquish all hold or entitlement over it an amazing thing happens - You create a space for creativity, inspiration, success and miracles to happen. You create an environment where you free your mind and consciousness of all the noise, negativity, doubt and anything that is holding you back or preventing you from moving forward. The object for me personally is to "create a life of freedom" it's the ultimate goal. At the end of 2017, I sat and reviewed the year the months that passed. I thought about where I was in my plan in creating a life of freedom but most importantly I thought about the things that made me happy. For example, my family, friends, running, being outdoors, experiencing new places things and meeting new people, connecting with other people. I then thought about the things that had made me unhappy in 2017. The feeling of being stuck, isolated and not having the time or the freedom to do the things I enjoy, like running and meeting new people experiencing new things because I am grounded to the business and specifically the location which comes with its own set of problems and headaches. So what do I need to do to make me happy in 2018? Remove the people/things that are causing me most stress and anxiety, I need change. Here's the thing about change and I call these the "3 C's" - CHOICE, CHANCE, CHANGE - You must make the choice, to take a chance, if you want anything in life to change. When looking back doesn't interest you anymore, you are doing something right. It means it's time for a change. I have to keep reminding myself it is essential to "Remove Fear Become Free" if I am to achieve happiness.

Be Happy

Are you ready to feel fear, be vulnerable, free your mind from all the noise, negativity, stress and anxiety? Are you ready to open yourself up to new possibilities, be more successful, go on exciting new adventures and connect with new people? If the answer is YES then jump on board and start asking yourself this simple question "On a scale of 1-5, how happy will this make me"? Anything below a 4 you need to not give a fuck, move on! More importantly, you are entitled to nothing unless you earned it yourself. Happiness is only possible when you expect nothing, make your own way in life and stop giving a fuck what other people think. Reserve your fucks for those who matter. If you want to make everyone happy, don't be a leader, sell ice cream. Repeat after me "I am enough".
