“Sometimes when I go over my Social Media channels and look at several posts, then it makes me wonder what people find Really important in Life these days”
Sometimes I’m a bit shocked what I see on Social Media, how people respond on posts about Succes, Get Rich Programmes and Earn a 7-figure Income by so to called “Coaches” Especially because it’s a bit sad that it takes away the True meaning of a Life Coach. A lot of Coaches are now in “the picture” as people who only make lots of money and become real Public Figures. While a True Life Coach is someone who has the Real Intention to Help people improving their Lives, by Creating Happiness and Balance but not mainly based on becoming Succesful or Earning lots of Money.
It makes me wonder what People these days See as True Happiness. I feel there is So much Pressure at the moment that you “Need” to earn lots of Money, Become Succesful and, even better, Become a Public Figure yourself. “Normal” is not good enough anymore, and that’s a True Shame.
You see, True Happiness and True Wealth has actually Nothing to do with Money. You can be Extremely Happy with your Life and what you Have, even though it’s not financially much but Comfortable. Sometimes people who have barely nothing, like in other Countries and Cultures, might be even more Happy than we are. They don’t have much, and they don’t know any better, so they are Grateful with what they have. They don’t have stress or worries about Bills, making lots of Money and Create Status.
We are So Controlled by Society today that we are basically “not interesting” if we don’t show on Social Media what we Have, How Succesful we are and How much Money we make. This Pressure can actually make people Depressed when they are not able to Achieve in this. And How Sad is that?
Lots of people Think that Wealth and Happiness only comes with lots of Money, as then you can Do and Buy what you want. But what, for whatever reason or through whatever circumstances, you don’t have that much money (anymore)…..what Do you have left? Often people fall into Depression when they “lose everything”, and here I talk about material status. As these people had the Believe that the Material Life they had was their Happiness. Again, this is actually Sad as well, as they Still could be Happy and Feel Happiness and be Wealthy….if they Only could See where the True Happiness and Wealth is kept.
So, what is True Happiness and Wealth then? How can you Be and Feel Happy and Wealthy when you don’t have lots of Money, an expensive Car or an expansive Home or Mansion?
You can Create True Happiness when you are able to Be Grateful. Grateful for what you Do have, for All that you already Received and having the Trust in All that still will Come for you. If you have a Roof above your head, Food on the table, a Warm Shower every morning, Beloved Family and Friends around you, Your gadgets, Your Health and still be able to go Out for a meal or a drink sometimes……then you can consider yourself as a Wealthy person. Compare yourself and your Life situation with someone who has Much less than you have….why is it Needed to have more? Is What you already Have not Satisfying enough? As if that’s the case, you will Never be Satisfied as you will Keep Wanting More.
Happiness, you find this Within Yourself. Again, when you are Grateful of what you Have and All that comes to you, if you can Enjoy the little things in Life, if you Feel Loved and are able to Give Love, if you have Good Health, if you can Live without Stress and Worries and be able to Take Life as it comes for you….then you are Creating Inner Happiness. As you Don’t Feel the Need to have more, you don’t feel Greed, as you are Happy with what you Have.
Happiness is Not in Materialism, it is in You, it is in the Non-Material things. And for some people this might be “hard to believe” when their Focus is on Materialism, or their Believe is in Happiness only comes with Materialism. Don’t get Fooled too much by Succesful or the so to called Rich people, as you don’t know if they are actually Truly Happy. But don’t get me wrong, there Are people as well who are very Wealthy and Rich and Are Happy, but they Created a Good Balance in their Life and they Still know the most Importancy in Life. Often these people Give Back. They Help and Support the Homeless or other Charities and that is Great!
What I try to make clear is to Not let your Happiness depending on Money or other Materialism. As when you Only try to search for your Happiness in that, you will keep searching for the rest of your Life. Instead, try to Find the Happiness within You and in the Life you have at the moment. Don’t let yourself Pressure by Society how you Supposed to live your Life or What you should do to become Succesful and make lots of money. It is totally okay to Be Grateful with what you have and Enjoy your Life as it is.
Even if you are Not totally happy with your Life how it is at the moment, maybe because of your current job or relationship or other circumstances, then Try to find a way to Change things around. But then in way that is Right and within Normality. Not by putting Pressure on yourself or Create Stress as this will actually Block your Flow of Happiness. And surely Not because you Need to Look Succesful in the eyes of Others. Someone else can’t make you Happy, You need to Create your own Happiness. And if you only would do it to Look Better towards others, then you Make Others Happy, but finally Not Yourself.
