If you think that your dream (or that goal; or that person; or that thing) will make you happy in the achieving or having of it, then you’ve got it wrong.
Many of us spend our life checking items off our list – a list we think we need, in order to be genuinely happy. We chase small and big goals, achieving more milestones, doing the ‘right’ things… all in the chase of that sense of genuine happiness, calm, & connection from within.
Fortunately, none of that will get us there.
And that’s good news… because if something outside of us is what brings us happiness, then that would mean that we cannot be happy in the absence of it.
The irony is, we likely won’t be happy in presence of it. Once the initial rush wears off, we’ll find ourselves looking for something else to make us happy.
And here’s the truth:
- It’s not your dream’s job to make you happy.
- It’s not your goal’s job to make you happy.
- It’s not that person’s job to make you happy.
- It’s not that thing’s job to make you happy.
When it comes to happiness, there is no light at the end of the tunnel. For there is no tunnel.
So follow your dreams… create & accomplish big goals… Explore and expand your possibilities….
But not because you’ll be happier when you get there.
Do it because use you want to.
And because you can.
Embrace your 50-50 human experience.
Be ALL IN it.
And claim your job to create happiness on the way.
