How To Make Wiser Choices Which Make You Happier…. Read on…
There are two ways you can make decisions in your life…
When you’re focused on FEAR you wind up having a scarcity mentality, and a lens aimed on uncertainty and limiting beliefs about the world’s offerings and your abilities for attainment.
When you’re focused on PLEASURE you have a lens aimed at your personal happiness and personal growth. You wind up finding yourself in a more positive mindset – and thereby you’re likely to maintain an abundance mentality on what the world has to offer and your ability to stretch towards opportunities.
Pleasure-directed people live their lives by choosing to move towards what interests them, enthuses them, inspires them…instead of letting fear and uncertainty distract them.
It should therefore be no biggie surprise to learn that pleasure-directed people tend to be:
(1) MORE happy
(2) MORE balanced,
(3) MORE centered
(4) LESS controlling
(5) LESS vindictive
(6) LESS jealous
Plus, because pleasure-directed people are more in touch with the needs and desires of their authentic self, they’re more likely to choose people, jobs, events, things that bring them true contentment.
Translation? When you make fear-directed decisions you wind up not only doing what you can to avoid pain, you also wind up avoiding the most fulfulling outcome!
Today, take a moment to look at how you make decisions — small, medium and large.
