I heard this quote today on Gabby Bernstein’s most recent vlog.
“Committing to happiness increases your chances for success.” – Robert Holden
I have certainly seen this unfold in my life. The year it took to publish my book I was feeling more funky than anything, I couldn’t figure it out.
Shouldn’t I be on the moon right now?
It wasn’t until I began this here TYOMD did I realize what was missing.
I’d been so focused on the publishing and the marketing and the (mucho important but still bland) blah-blah-blah that I’d gotten away from the very thing that ignited me in the first place.
The definition of success is still under speculation, but waking up everyday excited and feeling incredibly blessed seems like a really great marker;)
Plus, I’m in such great company of other folks following their bliss.
I love this story of Brandon Stanton of Humans of New York:
“In Chicago I was trading bonds. When I came to New York I didn’t really have a plan. I just knew I loved taking photos. I had about 600 portraits of people and I was like, you know what, this would make a pretty good blog.
I photograph everything that makes me happy. Turns out it makes other people happy too.”
I leave you with this: What is that thing for you?
