The Simple Key to Happier Feelings

Money? Nope.

Fame? Nah.

Good looks? Nuh-uh.

None of these things paves the road to happiness.

What does? Science says you’ll have to look inside. Turns out that PERSONAL GROWTH is one of the keys to glad feelings, researchers have determined.So focus on self-improvement daily, whether it’s taking better care of your health, doing things that give you confidence, or journaling to understand yourself better.

Joyful Goal Getting Yep, we all have a fundamental psychological need to make our own choices, feel a sense of accomplishment, and connect deeply with others. Which is why personal development is ground zero for good vibrations.

And a recent study of newly graduated college students helped prove it. Those who spent their first 2 years out of school pursuing materialistic goals (think wealth, looks, and fame) were far less happy than students who achieved more intrinsic personal goals, like getting involved in their communities, nurturing close friendships, and working on inner growth.

Inner Happiness Reigns

In fact, the materialistic students’ goals actually contributed slightly to their unhappiness. So don’t go there! Instead, formulate your own personal development goals, and use these tips to help you achieve them:

Believe. Yes, you can do it! In fact, the college student study confirmed that the more committed someone is to attaining a goal, the more likely he or she will succeed.

Love. Your life, that is. It’s a gift!

Laugh. With others.

The reason it caught my eye was the fact that it focuses on the importance of PERSONAL GROWTH.   I believe wholeheartedly in the power of personal development based on my own experience and what I have seen happen in the lives of others.

I am delighted to be an independent distributor for the Polaris Media Group.  The company is built upon the belief that, given practical education, every individual has the ability to realize their inherent potential and live a life of personal fulfillment.

THE MAJOR KEY TO YOUR BETTER FUTURE IS YOU

Of all the things that can have an effect on your future, I believe personal growth is the greatest.
THE MAJOR KEY TO YOUR BETTER FUTURE IS YOU.
A friend of mine has always answered when asked, “How do you develop an above-average income?” He says, “Simple. Become an above-average person. Work on you.” My friend says, “Develop an above-average handshake.” He says, “A lot of people want to be successful, and they don’t even work on their handshake. As easy as that would be to start, they let it slide. Develop an above- average smile. Develop an above-average excitement. Develop an above-average dedication. Develop an above-average interest in other people.” He says, “To have more, become more.” Remember; work harder on yourself than you do on your job.
Strangely enough, with two different people in the same company one may earn an extra $100 a month, and the other may earn a $1,000. What could possibly be the difference? If the products were the same, if the training was the same, if they both had the same literature, the same tools. If they both had the same teacher, the same compensation plan, if they both attended the same meetings, why would one person earn the $100 per month and the other person earn the $1000?
Remember here is the difference…the difference is personal, inside, not outside, inside.
You see the real difference is inside you. In fact, the difference IS you. Someone once said, “The magic is not in the products. The magic is not in the literature. The magic is not in the film. There isn’t a magic meeting, but the magic that makes things better is inside you, and personal growth makes this magic work for you.
The magic is in believing. The magic is in daring. The magic is in trying. The real magic is in persevering. The magic is in accepting. It’s in working. The magic is in thinking. There is magic in a handshake. There is magic in a smile. There is magic in excitement and determination. There is real magic in compassion and caring and sharing. There is unusual magic in strong feeling and you see, all that comes from inside, not outside. So, the difference is inside you. The real difference is you. You are the major key to your better future.
