We’re often asked how trying to do your best brings happiness…
Habitually Happy People Continually Try To Do Their Best, Feel Their Best, Be Their Best All Of The Time. Their Best keeps getting better.
It’s a direct application of The First Law of Happiness: Our Focus Determines Our Feelings. When we focus our attention on things we find bad, we feel sad, angry or anxious.
When We Think About Good Things We Feel Elevated, Excited, Energized. Our Focus Of Attention Determines Our Feelings.
If you’ve ever had a mediocre day when you just didn’t feel like putting forth a good effort and didn’t, you know the truth of this phrase.
When we don’t bother to try to do a good job and get only mediocre results, we feel pretty mediocre too.
Habitually Happy people continually energize themselves with thoughts of themselves doing their best at whatever it is they are doing.
Clear Goals Help Define The Steps To Attain Them.
Because they are thinking about doing well, they are able to do well and they feel well. Thinking about doing YOUR best provides a path to continually improve your performance.
The Key Word Here Is YOUR Best, Not Someone Else’s Best.
Learn all you can from other people’s superb performances and then try to do YOUR best. It’s the best you can realistically do.
Comparisons to superior star performers are often purposeless and painful for no reason. What good does it do to judge in comparison with the best unless you pull positive actions items for personal improvement from the process?
Powerful positive images of what you want to achieve are inspiring and invigorating. Working hard to achieve a worthwhile goal is satisfying and stimulating.
When you know you have done YOUR best you can let go of results on some level knowing you can do no more.
Continually Trying To Do YOUR Best Is A Key To Happiness.
Try To Do YOUR Best, Be Your Best, Feel Your Best All Of The Time.
