PERSONAL HAPPINESS DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP
“Too many people measure how successful they are by how much money they make or the people that they associate with. In my opinion, true success should be measured by how happy you are.” – Richard Branson
It’s your birthright to be happy and to thrive. Regardless of age, race, gender, education background, or socio-economic circumstances, you have the right – no you deserve – to be happy in your life. Sadly, few of us know how to achieve happiness and well-being. We all want to be happy, and often think that if we’re successful, have achieved financial freedom, the ideal job, a child, the perfect weight, or a supportive partner, we’ll be happy, but that’s seldom the case. People can be happy while being poor, ill, and going through hardship.
It’s easy to confuse success with happiness, and many people strive for professional goals (money or job titles), only to achieve them and realise that it doesn’t give them the sense of happiness they were hoping for. Happiness isn’t only for the privileged few; rather it’s for everybody. That everybody includes you!
Research has repeatedly shown that happiness drives success. So, we need to strive to be happy, because it supports us in making better decisions, being more creative and resilient, and helps us cope with life.
