Dialling up Success and Happiness

Dialling up Success and Happiness

Is there a specific frequency or internal combination that determines our level of success and happiness? Why do some people seem to be happy and successful most of the time? Do they know the number or combination for personal happiness and success?

Can you recall the times when you were truly happy?  During those times of happiness did success come easy?  Did success make you happy? At other times, did failure make you feel sad?  Perhaps your un-happiness helped to determine your eventual failures...?  Yes, it does sound like the chicken or the egg dilemma. Which came first; your happiness or your success..?  Perhaps happiness and success are not really related.

So, could there be a specific combination of internal things that creates our happiness?  Is there a special “happiness” combination, a frequency or a feeling?  Do those happy people have a specific “feeling” that defines how to create happiness?  Could they be just “feeling” their way to success and happiness?

If we understood that “successful feeling” then we could just dial up that feeling whenever we wanted success and happiness.  Successful people are quoted as saying “They can create success!”.  Many self development books state that success comes from within.  Athletes often state that they can generate a winning “feeling”.

OK, so how can we get this winning feeling?  Are there specific rules and guidelines?  Or do we each have to discover our personal success combination?  If we do not have this ability to create success and happiness then how can we learn?  What would be the first step to achieving this ability?

So let’s start with becoming more aware of our selves. This sounds like a great place to begin the journey.  But there must be more...

Perhaps a quote from The Buddha teaching the Four Noble Truths, Sanskrit manuscript. Nālandā, Bihar, India.

Here are the first three translated for our North American ways :

1. Some times we get what we do not want and suffer
2. Some times we do not get what we want and suffer
3. Some times we get what we want then it goes away and we suffer
