Hello everyone! Mike Arend here, founder of Infinite Success Academy, and author of "You're The One - an adventure into truth."
It's not the realization of your dreams that will bring you happiness, it's the ability to enjoy your life as it is now. You see, we are naturally insatiable creatures; reaching for one goal, we immediately fix our sights on the next.
These pursuits of the next goal are our adventures. They keep us growing, and they keep us alive. Which means, the only constant in our lives is the journey we are on. A journey without end and one that is partially based on attaining things we don't have yet.
So the trick is learning to find happiness even while you do not have all you want yet, because you never will (go back and read that sentence again)!
If we postpone our happiness until we attain all our dreams, it will never happen. It's just a constant cycle and habit that never comes into fruition.
To enjoy life means to enjoy the journey you're on, even though the journey itself implies we are incomplete. Relax, everything's going to be OK. Allow yourself to enjoy your life in each and every moment. Take the time necessary to plan your days ahead and then return to that relaxed mode of enjoying life as it comes to us moment by moment.
This is happiness's greatest secret; and now you know it too!
