Be Happy … Have a Sense of Meaning and Purpose in Life

Everyone wants to be happy. One thing that I have found is that most unhappy people have one thing in common, they have no ‘real goals’. Generally an unhappy person has no clear sense of meaning and purpose in life.

I see my personal mission as being that of helping people achieve their personal development goals quicker than they would on their own without my support, to get them from wherever they are today to wherever they want to go. Basically I want to make the difference.

Successful people think about what they want, and how to get it, most of the time. They focus on their most intensely desired goals. Deciding upon your goals clears the fog immediately and allows you to focus and channel your energies and abilities toward what you really want. By simply deciding exactly what you want, you will begin to move towards your goals. The starting point of goal setting is for you to realise that you have virtually unlimited potential to be, have, or do anything you really want in life if you simply want it badly enough and are willing to work long enough and hard enough to achieve it.

The second part of goal setting is for you to accept complete responsibility for your life, and for everything that happens to you, with no blaming and no excuses.

Today I want you to ask yourself some questions to unlock your full potential. I want you to do this with a positive mindset, so today I ask you to be an optimist about your life.

“Two men look out through the same bars: One sees the mud, and one sees the stars.”- Frederick Langbridge.

In life, you are always filled with choices. You may opt to have a pessimist’s view and live a self-defeated life or you may decide to take the optimist’s route and take a challenging and fulfilling life. So why not be an optimist today? And think positively towards a more fulfilled life. Now look at these questions and start getting your life to lift of.
