GBL082: Goals don’t bring happiness. Happiness brings goals.

We just thinking that if we achieve or change something about us that we’ll finally be happy. It’ll feel like the weight of the world is lifted off our shoulders. Once we reach that goal then we will start to exercise, eat healthy, spend more time with friends and family and travel.

Chasing happiness is usually ends in disappointment.

We also must understand that if we aren’t happy in the first place, it’s more difficult to have the energy, drive, and focus to put in the work towards reaching our goal.

If I’m feeling lazy and sorry for myself, then how will that affect my output? It’ll make a huge difference. I won’t be as effective. I won’t be able to see the solutions I’m looking for.

In today’s episode I talk about why it’s more important to focus on the journey towards our goals and how finding happiness is more important if we want to reach our goals.
