Happiness is Not Something You Achieve

Happiness is defined as a state of emotional well-being that a person experiences.

If you google 'happiness', you will also find what scientists have to say:
There are three things that make people most happy - PLEASURE (doing things you enjoy), ENGAGEMENT (feeling interested in your activities and connected to others), and MEANING (feeling like what you do matters).

Do you notice the common thread in these 3 aspects of happiness? 

They all have to do with 'doing' something. 

What I find interesting is that many of my clients that show up to work with me have been in the 'doing' of achieving for so long and now feel burnt out, exhausted and unfulfilled.  They are miles away of from happiness. 

Happiness is a feeling - regardless of what's going on around you. 

I know that sounds a little backwards. We've been sold this lie that we have to achieve and earn and get all this stuff and then we'll be happy. But it doesn't seem to be working out that way. 

Having studied with the experts in the field of personal development and mindset practices, I have learned that happiness is a state of being and that we can achieve the happiness factor FIRST and then allow it to be the main ingredient to 'doing' what we love.
