I’m Steve Norris with AffluentNetworker.com. I talk about how Network Marketing works and how it can work for you to help you create the affluent lifestyle of your dreams.
Today we’re talking about the 3 keys to happiness.
There are only three.
There are a lot of sub-headings that will fall under them, but there are only three things you need to have dialed in to lead a happy, successful and fulfilled life.
Those things are:
First is Time
You need to have control of your time so that you are able to do the things you want to do in life. So that you can spend it with the people you want to. You need time to be able to go to the places you want to be and to do the things that you’d like to do.
If you don’t have the time to do these things; if you can’t get away from work for a week when you want, you aren’t free. If you’re working on the holidays and don’t spend them with family and friends, you don’t have the completely fulfilled life.
In order to have a happy and fulfilled lifr, you must be in control of it. To do that, you have to be in control of your time.
Second is Health
The next thing you need to have is robust health.
It doesn’t do you any good if you have all the time in the world but you’re sick in bed or you’re so fat and out of shape that you can’t do anything. If you can’t swing a golf club, can’t swim, you can’t play with your grandchildren or outrun a 3 year old, your life will suck.
Without your health you don’t get to do the things that you want to do . If you’re in lousy health you may not be able to spend time with the people you want to spend time with. They may be out going for a hike in the hills and you can’t go because you just can’t keep up.
Without your health you may be limited in your ability to travel. You may not be able to get on a plane for 6 hours, or you may not be able to get too far away from your doctor. If your health is anything less than optimal, you will live a smaller, narrower life than you could.
It’s been said many times that “the true wealth is health.”
It’s a cliche and it’s hackneyed is all get out but it’s still the truth.
So you have to have control of your time and you must have your health dialed in if you’re going to live a successful and fulfilled life.
Third is Money
The final and equally important key to happiness is money.
Many people say, “I can be really happy without money”.
That may be so, but does a lack of money let you do all the things that you want to do?
If you’re struggling to put a new set of tires on your car can you afford a trip to Tahiti?
Can you take your kids to that important game out of town or buy your partner that special something they want?
Money gives you flexibility. It allows you to take time away from work when you want to. With money you are able to take as much time as you want to to enjoy the people and the things that you want to.
Money gives you flexibility.
It gives you options and let’s you afford to go to the places you want to go.
If your bills are paid, your mortgage is current and your car is paid for. If there’s gas in the tank and food on the shelf and you still have money leftover, you have the options to do the things you’d love to do.
That’s how you live a happy and fulfilled life.
So those are the 3 keys to living a happy life.
The sad part is that most people never obtain more than two.
When you’re young, you might have money and health but not have control of your own time. The job dictates that.
If you’re older, maybe you’re retired and you have lots of time. But your health isn’t so great or you have less money than you thought you would.
There is a way for you to obtain all three keys.
You could start and build your own successful Network Marketing business.
Doing that allows you to obtain and control all three keys to success and hapiness.
