Even though this question usually elicits an affirmative for happiness we don’t often place happiness as our priority in life. And I can understand why.
We come with a happiness set-point, 50% of which is genetically determined. This means that for some of us, with a naturally low happiness set-point , being happy is a bit challenging. We have to work harder at being happy than other people.
Thankfully Mother Nature decided to give us a bit of a break. She gave us a brain that can be changed and people who could work out how to change it. If we can change our brain, we can change our happiness set-point.
So now my question for you is this: are you interested in changing your happiness set-point? Or are you committed to changing your happiness set-point?
If you’re interested you will do what is convenient. If you’re committed you’ll do whatever it takes.
So maybe spend some time working on how to get committed if you have a lower happiness set-point and I’ll follow this up with some happiness inducing blogs.
If you would rather be wealthy then I would ask you the same question: are you interested in being wealthy or are you committed to being wealthy? And I’ll follow this up with some blogs on how to achieve your (wealth) goals.
