Success or Happiness- Which Came First?
Happy Weekend Everyone!
What are you up to today? I can guess what all the usual responses are going to be- catching up on housework, doing errands, going shopping. But what about learning to accept love and happiness in your life? I bet that’s not on your agenda!
I just watched this video by Michael Benner called “Why Emotional Quotient (EQ) is more important than IQ”. Michael suggests that we rethink the insatiable drive for “success” that seems to be ingrained in the modern psyche. He suggests that we have the equation all wrong- success is not the way to happiness and love, but rather happiness and love themselves are actually the route to success. He thinks that empowering ourselves to be the love and be the happiness that we seek is the way to lead a successful life.
Take a look at the video and let me know what you think! Do you agree with Michael’s theory? Or do you maintain that success drives happiness?
