Seeing as today was the day I decided to introduce a Happiness thought for the day, and because I really wanted to share yesterday’s musings without coming at the expense of today, I will be doing a double dose of Happiness Thought for the Day (this will likely not be the last time this happens.)
“To me, success is the ongoing process of striving to become more. It is the opportunity to continually grow emotionally, socially, spiritually, physiologically, intellectually, and financially while contributing in some positive way to others. The road to success is always under construction. It is a progressive course, not an end to be reached.” Tony Robbins
As often, I think that we can substitute the word “success” used by Tony Robbins, and put in “happiness” instead. The two words are often interchangeable. If you asked most people: “what would it take for you to feel successful,” their answer would likely be the same as if you had asked: “what would it take for you to feel happy.”
For me, my definition of success is a life of happiness, and I bet the same is true for most of us.
Remember that is not an overnight process, it is a constant striving. While much of happiness comes by way of contentment, and peace of mind, I believe it also comes from constant growth and progress, a road that, as Tony says, should always be under construction.
