Well, it has taken me a while to get around to doing this, but we are finally rolling out our weekly newsletter called Edutainment Weekly.
I have been very blessed over the last few years to have my success explode in every area of my life and the number one reason is that I went back to being a student who is ravenously hungry for information! Now that I am doing it again, it blows my mind that I spent so many years in a comfort zone relying on all the information I acquired in my initial phase of personal development years ago.
I am beyond excited to share with you some of the major epiphanies that I have had, and am continuing to have, with you every week.
I am calling this Edutainment Weekly because, as most of you know, I pride myself on being entertaining, as well as informative. That’s what the goal is anyway.
This week I would love to share some insights that I got from reading an amazing book called The Happiness Advantage. This book is filled with gems, so I am sure that I will refer to it frequently as the weeks unfold, but for starters, let me share this insight with you. It actually supports one of the lessons that I have taught many of you over the years in our Journey live seminar.
The author, who graduated from Harvard, and has done much of his research there as well, reveals a simple truth that most everyone has got backwards. Most people think that they will be happy when they achieve something that they are striving for….don’t you?
Well, he has proven through studies that is not the case. Rarely does getting what you have worked for make you happy. One of the main reasons is that you have usually got something else lined up that you now need to achieve in order to be happy.
And when you get that…..you have something else, and something else, and so on! For most people it never ends. Think about it. Do you know anyone who has a lot of things, but is not very happy? Has won many awards, but they are not happy?
Check this out….The chicken comes before the egg! Meaning….you should be happy first…and then you are more likely to achieve what you are striving for! Ever heard of the Law of Attraction?
And the best part is, even if you don’t achieve what you are striving for, you were having fun the whole time! Aren’t you tired of sacrificing for some future date when you can finally be happy? I was exhausted!
I was a top producer in my company, I was living in a million+ dollar home, driving a car worth well over $100,000, etc….and I wasn’t happy! I was so caught up in trying to prove something to someone. What’s up with that?
So Edutainment lesson number one is…….Have Fun!
And have fun….Right Now!
Try it, you’ll like it. I promise!
And this is just the very tip of the iceberg. I will send you something hot next week. Just look for my emails marked Edutainment Weekly.
If you want any of your friends to join in the fun, have them go to MarcAccetta.com and sign up for the newsletter. It’s Free!
