Happiness Thought for the Day: August 30, 2021

 

“Success without fulfillment is the ultimate failure.” – Tony Robbins. 

I heard this while listening to one of Tony Robbins’s motivational speeches on youtube. He went on to elaborate that often times when we fail we realize our discontentment and can use our experience to learn. The ultimate failure however, is to get exactly what you wanted, or thought you wanted, and to still be miserable. 

Goal’s require sacrifice, and sacrifice often means the delay of happiness for a future state. Before making that sacrifice, make sure that what you are chasing will bring you fulfillment. This is perhaps the most acceptable time for when one is wise to delay happiness and gratification – for the bringing of fulfillment. But if your goals do not bring fulfillment, they are not worth pursuing.
