13 Jun There are so many different paths to happiness
Two things have happened today to remind me that there is no one path to happiness but rather, many wonderful and varied paths to many wonderful and varied forms of happiness.
I was coaching a client this morning and spent close to an hour discussing what happiness is and how it can be experienced differently by different people.
After that, I went to the launch of a wonerfully inspirational book (“Back from the Brink” by Graeme Cowan) that tells the stories of a number of people (some famous) who’ve recovered from depression. Even within this slightly different context it was clear that different things worked for different people and so not surprisingly, each individual achieved his or her “goal” via quite different paths.
Happiness is very much an individual thing. Don’t copy someone else’s happiness; don’t try to follow someone else’s plan. Find out what happiness means to and for you and forge your own path towards your own happiness!
