Are You Happy?

I was listening to an inspirational video earlier today and heard something I've heard before which struck me differently this time. 

The key to balance and flow in your life and business is to be happy in the now and have a vision for the future.

How often have you felt that your life or your business or your relationships would be better in the future? 

As many of you know, I've been dieting and struggling to lose weight all my life. I remember hearing from one of the weight loss experts that I worked with years ago who told me that I need to be happy with who I am before I lose the weight because just losing the weight will not make me happy. At the time I heard that, I just scoffed (politely, of course) and proceeded to focus on how I would feel so much better in the future when I was the size I wanted to be.

What they were trying to tell me was that I needed to be happy before I achieved my weight goal. Just because I lost the weight, I may not be any happier having achieved that goal. Guess what? They were so right!!! When I achieved my ideal weight I wasn't any happier and so the weight came back, plus extra.

So, how does this apply to your business? Here's the question.

Are you happy with who you are and what you're doing in your business today?

If you are, then take action to move towards your goals and your vision for your future.

If you're not, pause and ask yourself what do you need to do or to be or to have that will make you happy now? Then take action to be happy. 

Once you're happy and you appreciate all that you have and are and have created and serve and support and, and, and.... then you can move towards creating your big vision.

So, today. Start with going inside to make sure you're happy.
