Happiness Is The Key
What up people!
What an awesome weekend. As the saying goes, "No rest for the Wicked". This proves to be true. I had an awesome Saturday, spent doing what I loved to do : Hustling in STYLE! Some call it work, some call it an obligation. Well, personally, the best thing about having a job that you love is that it never feels like work. In fact, the more you enjoy yourself, the more money it makes you. What the hell am I talking about? Well, if you'd like to know how that rings true, read on!
For those of you who are fans of simple formulas, what this means is :
FUN = $$$
I really believe that Joy and/or Happiness is really the most important thing in life. Why do we work so hard to earn a desirable income? Why do we work out so actively to stay in great shape? Why do we watch what we eat, spend on new clothes... why do we want to read up on dating-science literature, understand the opposite sex etc. ? I really believe that whatever the goal is, we do it because we believe that will bring us happiness. Think about it, every time you are engaged in an activity you enjoy, it's like time stops. You lose track of day and night and you are just able to go on and on doing what you love. You even lose track of the need to eat and drink. An unexplainable surge of ENERGY which overwhelms you and it drives you to produce some phenomenal work. That is the power of Passion, which is a power that is drawn from the realization of Joy.
We should always remember "You are the most important person in the World." Even more so when You are the best person to know what brings you happiness, which will be exactly the decisions and ideas that will lead you to your dreams. I will use my Senior Coach, Jiron Tan, as an example. I think Jiron's story really emphasizes the things I am writing about. He always loved writing and because of that, he took the unconventional path and took Creative Writing as his major in school. Writing was the source of his joy and it inspired him to make a decision and invest in what he loved to do. It eventually lead him to establish StoriesMania, which today, is a world-reknown literature site. Apart from that, his love and talent has also helped him establish himself as a credible online marketer making good income working from home.
The fact of the matter is, he chose to invest in what made him happy. Sure enough, it paid off. Fun = $$$.
Amidst all these hobbies and businesses, he is now a Senior Coach for Success Initiative. I am thankful to have him on board because really, such a concept is rather unconventional. In fact, a lot of what we do at Success Initiative is unconventional. But that's what being a Maverick Hustler is all about : Mastering the unconventional and using it to bring you success!
Happiness is KEY!
A vast majority of people I work with are stuck in a place where their level of happiness is below their level of despair. This can really take a menacing toll on your life. It's hard to stay optimistic when there is so much to worry about. I have even coined a term for this situation, I call it "Emotional Economics". Like general economics, when something goes up, something else must go down. Nothing is ever at a standstill. If you are in great shape now and you don't work out for a year, you are not going to be in the same shape. Same thing for business, if you are not going out there and exploring new opportunities, inflation and competition is going to catch up. You don't just stagnate, you DROP OUT.
Emotional Economics For Happiness
Emotional Economics dictates that the more optimistic you are, the more optimistic you will be as time goes by and vice versa. If you are depressed and you keep staying that way, not doing anything about it, it is only going to get worse. If you failed to accomplish a task and you allow yourself to think you are a failure, it is going to stop you from making any more efforts in future. It's a downward spiral. However, if you failed to accomplish a task, but you are optimistic enough to learn the lessons, avoid the same mistakes and give it another shot, it will give you another path up to success. With respect to Emotional Economics, this is exactly why it is important to stay happy because it will keep you passionate and motivated to accomplish more!
This is why I set up Success Initiative. It is an avenue to raise awareness and eventually bring Joy and happiness to everyone out there who wants it. The Maverick Hustler Movement is my vehicle to make this a REALITY for anyone in the most effective and efficient way possible. In short, we are specialists at helping you fuse enrichment and enjoyment together. That means prosperity, happiness from working and learning. How cool is that? Haha...
Alright folks, in my next blog post, I am going to tell you about how my Managing Director, Timothy Koh, and I, found ourselves marshaling the process of a successful 5-figure deal on Saturday afternoon, over a meal of Lamb Shanks, Mint Tea and Shisha. Enrichment through Enjoyment! Stay tuned
