World-class performers are famous for their drive to get more, achieve more, and be more. But when is enough, enough? Is being in a constant mental state of ‘more’ having a negative impact on our peace of mind and happiness? Are we missing out on the true joy of life while we are in the process of chasing the next pay raise, level of success, or perfect relationship? This is one of the important critical thinking questions I’ve asked hundreds of the most successful people on the planet for over 25 years, and their answer may surprise you. Their answer isn’t as black and white or linear as you might expect, but it is brilliant. No wonder they’re able to happily move from one success to the next, while seemingly being able to soak up and celebrate the sheer joy of being alive. Watch this short video I filmed today in Sydney, Australia, on Sydney Harbor overlooking the Opera House. I think this is an important topic of discussion because many super successful people are unhappy and don’t know why, while some who are still striving have found the secret to happiness (or at least their secret) and seem to have it made. Is it possible to be super successful and super happy? I think so, and that’s what this post is all about. As always, I’ll look forward to your comments and another robust discussion.
