Sustained Happiness

The secret to sustained happiness is knowing you're on your path.

This brilliant photo was taken a few weeks ago in Bali. I was happy but my happiness was short-lived. I felt ungrounded and off my path. I lost confidence in my sense of direction and felt like I was going in circles.

Once again, I was reminded that if there's one secret to sustained happiness, it's having a clear direction. Simply knowing that you're on your path.

When you are walking clearly along your intended path, you are experience real joy, a true sense of inner peace. Likewise, when you know with certainty that the path you're waking is right, challenges and difficulties are not a problem - they are just part of the journey.

As with so many things in life, half the battle in simply crystallizing the direction - aligning with our inner GPS. The penalty for not doing so can lead to restlessness and feeling unfulfilled.

As a wise man once said, our greatest fear should not be of failure, but of succeeding at things that don't really matter.

Happy walking.
