The Keys to Confidence, Happiness, and Satisfaction


Here’s a simple thought for the day that I came across during my daily reading.

Finding Happiness
We look for happiness all our lives. Either we’re lucky enough that it comes to us or we go searching for it. We want to be happy, enjoy life, and improve our world for us and those around us.

We do all kinds of things to be happy. We look for love. We buy things. We build new friendships. We take trips. Some even look for happiness in less than positive pursuits.

Some of these can enhance our happiness; some can lessen it. But I recently stumbled across a rather accurate way to improve it.

A New Perspective
As I was listening to my newest book Your Best Year Ever by Michael Hyatt, I heard him say something about happiness I just had to jot down. It was his definition as the key to happiness and more. And it was simple:

Confidence, happiness, and life satisfaction are byproducts of personal growth.

If you think about those situations that make you feel happy – not just now, but in the future, they tend to come from becoming a better person.

Personal Growth
For instance, we look to love to make us happy, and yet we know the euphoria of romantic love can be fleeting. At the same time, it seems we gravitate toward those romantic movies where one of the people was a scoundrel and then in the end they say “you make me want to be a better person”.

It gives us a moment of excitement and a great memory to go to a concert. It gives us a sense of value and pride to learn how to play our favorite songs or sing along with skill.

It makes us feel valued when a coworker goes to bat for us and speaks up for us in a meeting when we’re not sure what to say. It gives us confidence and clarity when we know a subject so well that we can discuss all it’s merits without the need for someone else to jump in.

A Better Us
There are so many ways to improve ourselves, move forward, and succeed. I hope this blog is a resource to enlighten and encourage you to do just that.

If you want to find confidence, happiness, and satisfaction, find a way to improve yourself. Just take some simple steps to make it happen and keep at it.

The joys of personal growth are just around the corner. Grab hold, and hang on! It’s going to be a fun ride.
