10 Days to Happiness and Success

By December 25, 2013

Follow me on:

Take some time this week to read through my ten day program about how to have a more successful, happy career and life. The truths you will discover over the ten days, if you choose to read a lesson a day, are simple to explain and profoundly difficult to practice.

So, consider the pursuit of happiness and success in work and life - a journey. These practices will get you started on that journey.

I wish life, family, and work were easy. Really. But, they're not. The best of you struggle with loving or hating your work, balancing home and family life with work, and making the income that allows you to fulfill your dreams. You struggle with a lot more than that, too. And, this past year has been one for the record book.

You have a current economic meltdown that affects all of your responsibilities: kids to put through college, homes that develop leaks in the roof, saving for retirement, and family and friends who actually want to spend time with you. Wow. You struggle with quite an armful. And, some of you struggle with even more than that. Disabled family members, illness, and life's unexpected and unplanned for events occur.

Recognizing all of this, I have tried to zero in on the ten most important concepts that will help you develop the tools and thinking you need to succeed at work. At the same time, work success is fleeting if you don't also succeed at home. Life is a balancing act, so these concepts are applicable to your whole person, too.

Happiness is as important as success, so I wanted to include happiness in the equation. Consequently, ten days to a happier and more successful future is the theme for this ten lesson series. Read, enjoy, and grow, but, most of all, benefit from this time you spend thinking about you and your life.

Begin the journey with my ten day program: 10 Days to a Happier, More Successful Career and Life. You can watch for my periodic reminders on this nlog about the day's lessons; you can subscribe to the email newsletter; or, you can participate at your leisure.
