Motivation For Success

Definition of a Happy and Successful life

We all have shaped our own definitions of happiness right from childhood. Plenty of those perceptions are due to conditioned development i.e. they’re a part of our habits as a result of repetitive instilling by parents, teachers, peers and therefore society in general. That’s why, none of us has truly wondered about what specifically makes us feel happy! This sense has been left to our sub-conscience and we have a tendency to merely feel the happiness in line with the situation we are in.

A lot of little things will provide happiness to us. for example, simply the thought of shopping or spending money tends to excite us and makes us feel happy Opportunities and family even have a similar impact on us. This excited state makes us imagine things associated with these occurrences. For example: the thought of going on vacation or getting an annual bonus would make us excited. In fact, we might feel the elation without actually being on the vacation itself, but, once being on the actual vacation, the thrill tends to calm down as one begins to feel content.

Same is the case with objects. we tend to go quite crazy to buy the most recent cell phone, laptop, I-pod or the new Mini Van. However once we tend to own that stuff, the thrill settles down and the excitement doesn’t stay the same or for very long. The cycle of excitement begins once more when another new product is launched and we want it..

Let’s pause for a second here and seriously think about our state of happiness. Is it pertained to getting the latest new thing only? Will it end at desires being fulfilled? Is our domain of happiness restricted only to spending good times with family or friends? We are so concerned with this cycle of desires that we really forget to envision what real happiness is and how it may be achieved. The state or definition of happiness varies for each individual as they have their own individual desires.

For a few individuals, achieving a decent career path provides happiness. For some, it’s their fulfillment of goals and objectives where as bringing happiness on the face of the underprivileged can provide some individuals happiness. However, everyone doesn’t have it easy in this world. Our income, education, family, surroundings, society and friends all have an effect on our state of happiness.

We might not always have the required income required to satisfy our needs or may be our career isn’t going as smooth as we had planned. Therefore what does it do to us? Does it burst our balloon of hope and excitement or does it renew our hopes making clear our vision and advance for the future with new motivation? How does one react when things don’t end up as you had planned? Most importantly, is your reaction acceptable or do you need to change your attitude and perception?

After all, success is all about having the correct paradigm shift!
