What Does Happiness Mean to You?
One of the questions I'm constantly asking my clients is, "How do you want to feel?" Some common answers are:
These are understandable ways to want to feel, and their meanings may seem obvious—but they're not. They can mean very different things to different people.
For someone, happiness may mean finally having the healthy baby she's been trying to have for a long time. To someone else, it may mean traveling the world. To me, it's spending time with my puppies (and husband, of course 😊 )
Success may mean being the CEO of a Fortune 500 company to one person. To someone else, it may mean getting paid (any amount) for her paintings.
One person may want confidence to perform on stage in front of 25,000 people. Someone else may just want it to ask someone out on a date.
When you specifically define what you want, then you can identify the steps you need to take achieve it. Knowing and planning what you need to do makes it MUCH more likely you'll get what you want. So, give how you want to feel some thought.
