Thursday is going to be a fantastic day!  No if, ands, or buts!  My book should be here today and ready to talk about tomorrow.  In the mean time, the topic I want to talk about today is happiness.  True happiness.  When I think of true happiness, the word fulfillment always comes to mind.  What makes me fulfilled is quite a bit different than what makes Holly fulfilled.  What makes Holly fulfilled is quite a bit different than what makes her children feel fulfilled.  Our needs, desires, passions, and loves are unique to just us.  It is so important that we go through life chasing what brings us absolute fulfillment.

Now this is the part where we need to be careful.  If we go through life just chasing our selfish desires, and that is it, life will be miserable, and end up being non-fulfilling.  In my opinion, to find true happiness we have to be chasing balance.  Let me make chasing balance and fulfillment simple.  In all the research that I have done, this is what I have learned to be the best methods to finding true happiness through balance.

1. Pick your passion physically and run with it- my passion physically changes once every 3 or 4 months.  Sometimes my goal is to put on as much muscle mass as possible.  Sometimes it is to lean up and find that six pack again.  The point is that I change it up so it feels fresh and new.  But I always have some goal physically that I am chasing after.
2. Educationally- I very rarely miss out on an opportunity to learn.  At the gym, in the morning, on the toilet, right before bed.  My overall goal is to read 2 books per month, but I also have a goal to never waste time with rubbish.  Whether your goal is to learn to cook, invest, help a child with a disability, change the oil on your car.  It doesn’t matter.  Pick a goal educationally and chase it like nothing you have ever done.
3. Spiritually- in my opinion, you have to have a great relationship with God to be truly happy.  No one could ever convince me otherwise.  If you don’t have that relationship, find it.  If you don’t care for that relationship, at least take time to give thanks every day.  We all should be aiming for higher ground spiritually every single day of the year.  Because the moment you stop, things get ugly.  Know what you want spiritually.  It is a goal you have to have to find true happiness.
4. Financially- I have annual goals, net worth goals, savings goals, and goals when it comes to being charitable.  Everyone of them equally important.  Financially, I want to take over the world.  Because I believe that money magnifies people.  So if I take care of people and always remember where the money came from (God), money will be something that helps me bless the lives of many forever.
5. Emotionally- I talk about this one last because in my opinion, it is the one that brings them all together.  I just got done watching a documentary on Warren Buffet.  The guy is probably the best businessman of all time.  And I respect the hell out of what he has accomplished.  But when I hear his family talk about Warren as a dad and a husband, it hurts my soul.  My #1 goal in life is for people to stand at my grave, especially my children, and have them be able to say that “I genuinely cared for them and loved them, and that there was nobody better.”  Love the people that love you.  If you settle in on that one principle alone, your life will be fulfilled.  I guarantee it.
