Are you happy?

Think about it…

On a scale of 1 to 10 – how happy are you, right now?

It’s a simple question, but let me tell you, it’s loaded with meaning. 

This isn’t just about your mood today. It’s about your whole approach to success. Because if you’re anything like the entrepreneurs we work with, your happiness is probably tied up in the success of your business.

You’re waiting for that big breakthrough, that moment when everything falls into place, and you can finally say, “Yes, I’ve made it!”

But, what if I told you that’s all backward?

What if I told you that waiting for success to bring you happiness is like waiting for a train at an airport? It’s not coming.

I had an eye-opener recently, and I want to share it with you because it’s too good to keep to myself. 

It’s about finding happiness now, not later.

First things first, grab a piece of paper. 

Go on, I’ll wait. 

Now, jot down 50 reasons why someone should buy from you. 

Sounds like a lot, right? 

Trust me, it’s an eye-opener. 

It’s not just about listing your strengths but about realizing the value you already bring to the table. 

This exercise isn’t just about building a sales pitch; it’s about building confidence in what you offer right now.

Now, onto the juicier part. 

Happiness. How do you feel right now? 

I mean, really feel. Not just on the surface, but deep down. 

Give yourself a number. 

Got it? Good.

Here’s the kicker: however you feel right now, that’s exactly how you’ll feel even after hitting all those big milestones. 


I was too. 

But it’s true! 

Success doesn’t change how we feel. It just amplifies what’s already there. 

If you’re content now, success will make you more so. 

If you’re not, well, success won’t fix that.

So, what do we do? 

We start by allowing ourselves to feel happy now. 

It’s like setting a rule in your mind. 

Decide to feel good about where you are and what you’re doing. 

Celebrate the small wins, no matter how trivial they seem. 

Placed your first ad? Awesome! 

Read a chapter of a book? Great! 

Each small victory is a step towards bigger successes.

This mindset shift isn’t just motivational fluff; it’s based on solid psychological principles. 

In fact, there’s this fantastic book, “The Happiness Equation,” that dives deep into this. It’s a must-read if you’re serious about changing your perspective on happiness and success.

Here’s the deal: being hard on yourself, setting impossible standards, it’s a trap many of us fall into. 

But it’s not the way to happiness or success. 

Gratitude, on the other hand, is a game-changer. 

It’s about appreciating what you have, the journey you’re on, and the small victories along the way.

So, let’s wrap this up with something actionable. 

Right now, think of three small wins you’ve had recently. 

They could be anything – a positive customer interaction, a productive day, or even just getting up on time. 

Acknowledge these wins, celebrate them, and feel the happiness they bring.

Happiness is like a muscle. The more you flex it, the stronger it gets.

Now, ask yourself again – on a scale of 1 to 10, how happy are you? And what can you do today to boost that number?

And hey, if you need a little help along the way, remember, we’re all in this together. 

We’re here to support, guide, and celebrate with you every step of the way.

So, what are your three wins? 

Share them, celebrate them, and let’s ride this wave of happiness together.

Until next time, keep thriving, keep smiling, and remember – happiness is now, not later.
