INTRODUCTION for new subscribers
(prior subscribers – skip down to the “Happiness Facts” section)
The purpose of this newsletter is to provide a regular and consistent supplement to the action-oriented process found within my website - www.behappy101.com - and in my book, BeHappy!
It is intended to make a powerful contribution to the amount of joy and fulfillment in your daily life by providing regular tools, reminders, and strategies to:
Also, make sure to get my free “Happiness Formula” Video Course just by clicking on the link in the box at the top right (just under the great "income opportunity" box) or just click here. It will change your whole perspective on happiness – and on life in general.
Since my goal is to help make people happier, though, it’s best to first get my book, BeHappy! to use along with the Happiness Plan template, the video course and the website to achieve maximum benefit (yes, that’s partly a sales pitch — but it’s true).
So, I'm making it a "no-brainer" for you to get it right now for 50% off and a FREE gift Ebook...
The BeHappy! Newsletter
The previous edition of this newsletter in June was the start of a 3-part series on “money” and happiness.
It first discussed the concept of the connection between money and happiness, and how some people believe there is no connection while others believe there is.
Well, if (1) you are one of those people (like me) who believes there is some possible relationship between money and happiness (if it's part of your personal Definition of Happiness), and (2) you don’t have enough money to meet the financial criteria for your personal Definition of Happiness then you really need to study this series carefully and take the actions recommended.
So, first, if you have not read the June edition of this newsletter, you should do so now. Just click here to read it, then come back to continue with this edition.
If you did read it, did you determine if your personal Definition of Happiness includes a financial, income, or wealth component? Again, if you haven’t done this, it is critical that you do if you really want to have more money, income, wealth, and/or financial freedom.
Finally, if you have read the June edition, did you check out the “Rippln” income opportunity presented in the past two issues? If not, take a minute to check it out now by clicking here or on the big orange icon in the box above. It’s not for everyone, but it will only take a few minutes of your time to check it out and, if it is something that interests you, I think you’ll be happy you did. There is still time to get in on the “inner circle” of this new ground-floor social media opportunity as Rippln is currently in the process of launching to the public and it is expected to go “viral” very soon.
So, don’t miss out!! Click here now to check it out for yourself.
After that, move on to the topic for this edition of The BeHappy! Newsletter...
Money: Your “Primary Source of Income”
”Working” For A Living
In my ebook, BeHappy! at Work (click here to see how to get a FREE copy), I introduce a phrase that I prefer to use instead of “job” or “work”. That phrase is “Primary Source of Income” (or “PSI”).
I prefer this phrase over the words "job" or "work", since if you think about it, whether consciously or subconsciously, the words “job” and “work” create some degree of negative feelings to most people (since statistics show that 75% of people don’t like their job and most people don’t really like to “work”, and would rather “play”, which unless you consider your “work” a form of play, then it’s not a positive thing).
Your Passion: The reason most people don’t love their jobs is because most people are not using their passion in life for their income. One of the "Happiness Facts" above indicates that studies show that only 20% of people are "passionate" about their job.
Think about musicians, actors, and professional athletes. These are some of the most obvious examples of people who started by “loving something” (like music, acting, or a sport) and worked to build a career out of that “passion”. And, there are many other examples of using your passion for income that are not as “glamorous” as these. There are many people who are just as passionate about teaching, building, taking care of sick people, or any other “job” you can imagine.
The point is, if you can use your “passion” in life to derive income, you will likely be happier and probably make more money. It is beyond the scope of this newsletter to get very deep into how to derive income from your passion – or even how to determine your true passion in life (if you don’t already know it) – but I go through a process on how to do these things in my ebook, BeHappy! at Work, which you can get for just $3.75 by clicking here (or, you can get a free copy when you order my foundational book, BeHappy! for 50% off – just $7.50 – by clicking here and I'll send you a free copy of BeHappy! at Work, as well as another ebook on stress management).
In the meantime, if you either are not using your passion in life for your income AND you do not like your “job”, make sure to take the actions recommended below... and also make sure not to miss the October edition of the newsletter, where I will discuss creating multiple streams of income – which can eventually help free you from a job you don’t like (NOTE: I had intended on covering this multiple streams of income topic in this edition of the newsletter, but decided it would be better after this discussion on “primary source of income”).
BeHappy! ACTIONS TO TAKE UNTIL THE NEXT ISSUE OF THIS NEWSLETTER
Like everything in life, the old saying, “practice makes perfect” applies to happiness, too. By using the tools and concepts in the book, BeHappy! - and applying the principles found at BeHappy101.com and in this bi-monthly newsletter - you'll get the coaching and the “practice” you need to lead the happiest possible life.
It takes daily action to get “perfect” at it, though.
So, if you have read previous editions of The BeHappy! Newsletter you know that every issue provides some simple action-oriented exercises for the next two months (until the next edition of the newsletter) which relate to the main subject of this edition of the newsletter to help make happiness a habit.
Just a few minutes of focus every day and you’ll be laying the foundation for the happiest possible life - both for yourself and for those you love.
If you do these things, I can promise you’ll notice a big difference in the quality of your life.
You will BeHappy!
