Happiness is a bad thing to chase.
Effective living that leads to a sense of fulfillment is far better.
You become happy as a result of living an effective life!
You don’t actually try to directly land yourself a big fat bag of happy.
In doing so, you will fail.
But when you learn to understand all of life and your place in it, a whole lot better than you do right now, I think you’re going to be pleased with what happens next.
OK. That was the view from the mountaintop temple in Tibet.
What about here in Regular People World?
Very simple, really: Your entire physical being performs better.
Part of that is your head. Your brain.
You’ll become a better problem solver and more proactive – less of a victim. This make you powerful.
You’ll also improve how your day progresses to where many of these problems cease to take place. You become a better manager of your life.
Part of this is your heart
Your heart governs more of your life than your brain does, but most are not aware of this.
As you get in touch with your heart, you change in a way that makes you a better person to be around. You also experience a change in attitude about all those around you.
You begin to help others more. Or at least not give them as much grief as you maybe once did.
Another part is your perspective on life
What life means to you and the part you play in it will become clear to you in a way that will start making some of your problems magically disappear.
Well, that’s a little bit of a lie you’ll tell yourself without realizing it.
Those types of problems will still be there. But you are stronger and they no longer look like problems to you anymore. Less bothers you. This robs those events of any negative power they may have once held over you.
In a purely “meat machine” sense, you’re just gonna become a better functioning system.
The benefit of being human means that all the groovy intangibles will improve too, by default.
And it’s going to be a natural state that you won’t have to force to make real.
Are you going to grow wings and a halo?
Ha ha! Nope. This hasn’t anything to do with religion or even metaphorical sainthood.
It isn’t about attaining perfection.
You’re probably going to screw the pooch here and there with a certain amount of regularity. You’re still going to be “you”.
But you’ll learn a better way to present this you to the world.
And you’ll learn to realize that this you is something easy to change in order to adapt to any situation.
You’ll learn, you’ll grow, you’ll do life better. You’ll get stronger and calmer.
After that, it’s all relative.
Just look at all the areas of life this New You is going to improve:
- Personal life self-awareness
- Ability to adapt to change
- Handling problems in life
- Accomplishments in life
- Life as a whole
- Overall contentment with life
- Relationship with significant other
