I have a VERY important message for you today. I am literally going to show you the secret formula to creating happiness in your life (and no it ‘aint money).
In this business it seems like we talk an awful lot about money (and rightfully so, I want A LOT of it), but sometimes it’s good to sit back and think about WHY we want money.
What does money actually do for us?
I’m reading a book right now called “The Fastlane Millionaire”. It’s the second best business book I’ve ever read, behind “The 4 Hour Work Week”.
This is my third or fourth time reading it and inside this book, the author, MJ Demarco, describes this thing called: the “happiness” formula.
He’s says happiness is created based upon 3 factors – the 3 F’s :
Family (aka: relationships. Relationships with family, friends, God, the people around you, etc.)
Fitness (aka: health.)
Freedom (aka: choice.)
I want you to look at those 3 things. Seriously – study them.
If you’re happy right now, it’s because you have all 3 of those factors in line in your life.
Family – It’s awfully difficult to be happy in your life, if you have terrible relationships with the people closest to you.
Health – Ask a person on their death bed how much money or ANY THING else means to them. Without health, you literally have nothing.
Choice – We all despise bosses. Why? Because they take away our choices & our freedom.
Would you rather have the Ferrari or the Honda? The Ferrari, right?
But most people don’t have the freedom in their life to make that choice.
In fact, most people don’t have much freedom at all.
Therefore, every decision that you make in your life (assuming you want to be happy) should be made to either: strengthen the relationship with your family, improve your health, or give you more freedom.
That’s HOW you’ll be happy.
Now I know there’s at least one of you out there that are thinking “I knew it! I knew money doesn’t make people happy!”.
If you think that, you’re wrong.
Money is emotionless; it has no effect on emotion whatsoever.
If you say “money doesn’t make people happy”, you are effectively saying this “Not having money makes people happy” and I’m telling you from experience: that is 100% wrong.
Let me explain…
I mean look at that guy, he has A LOT of money and he’s miserable!
The guy you’re looking at is NOT miserable because he has a lot of money.
Seriously think about it for a second…
Why are rich people sometimes horribly depressed? Is it because they have money?
It’s because they sacrificed the things that make people happy in the pursuit of money.
In the pursuit of their wealth, they worked 80+ hours a week.
This weakened the relationships with their family, which took them down a notch on the happiness scale.
They worked too often, so they didn’t have time to eat right, and they were a little too stressed out, which lead to heart problems, and down another notch on the happiness scale.
They moved up the corporate ladder, so they always had a boss telling them what they can and cannot do, which got in the way of their freedom, and dropped them another notch on the happiness scale.
They aren’t not happy because they have money. They’re miserable because of what they SACRIFICED to obtain money.
Booh yah : ).
Just to reiterate one more time:
Money does not make you happy or sad.
If you use money to have better relationships, create a healthier lifestyle, and give yourself more freedom, it will actually make you VERY happy.
If you use money to destroy the 3 F’s in your life, money will make you miserable.
It’s really that simple.
This is why I absolutely LOVE making money on the internet.
Yesterday, I woke up. I sent out 3 emails and I made $1,500.
The only work I did, besides those 3 emails, was write this blog post/email (I write my stuff at night and then publish it in the a.m.)
…and that’s an easy $1,500 in my bank account…
I didn’t sacrifice my family because I had an ample amount of time to spend with them.
I didn’t sacrifice my health.
I actually improved my health. I’m not stressed out about what I do, which is good on my body, plus I can afford to buy the healthiest food out there.
I didn’t sacrifice my freedom.
I can literally do whatever the heck I want.
So because of the way I choose to create my wealth, I’m not sacrificing happiness, I’m actually improving happiness each and every single day.
THAT’S how to create the life of your dreams.
To me, money is just a tool. I understand that it does not have any effect on my emotions, therefore I am in control of my life and I choose how happy I want to be.
So just be happy. You’re in the right place at the right time. There is not a better place in the world for you to create happiness in your life. Don’t give up. You’ll get there. : )
