Achieving Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness

Thomas Edison Quote on FailureAndy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance.

Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is a phrase we learn as small children. Unfortunately, we really don’t learn what it means until later in life, and some of us never learn it at all.

There is a lot of advice out there on how to be successful and world changing, but the core piece of advice to keep in the forefront is to pursue what you love, every day, no matter what. That’s a life worth living.

Don’t pay attention to the naysayers, your limitations or your doubts. Keep going in spite of them. Every single person in this world has an ideal path that will make their life fulfilled, and those who can ignore the road blocks have discovered liberty.

To find your passion and be successful with it, you must go with what makes you truly happy and then pursue that happiness every day like you haven’t yet gotten it. Make every day a chase and never stop the journey. That’s the pursuit of happiness.

Many people do this without considering another way. They know what they want from a young age and don’t stop.

Think about the truly successful people in the world. Thomas Edison, Steve Jobs, Sam Walton, Walt Disney. All these people have two things in common- passion and determination. Each of them found something they loved to do and were passionate about pursuing it. 

All of these people faced challenges that seemed impossible to overcome, but they didn’t care. They kept going, every day, and now they are famous for their success.

These people are lucky. They know what they want and they did it with passion. Many of us may still be confused as to that one thing we think we should do. But there lies the problem. Thinking. Instead of thinking about what you should do, weighing the risks and moving once you’ve decided to, you should just do. Don’t consider how you may fail or that you might not make any money. Certainly don’t think about what others will think. Just do what you know you want and pursue it every day.

Live the life you want and be successful. Make our forefathers proud and take your right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

How to Live Up to Your Dreams

Living up to your dreams can feel like a long shot, especially when you’re just starting out, or starting over. But if you believe in yourself, great things can happen. The key is to set achievable short-term and long-term goals. As you achieve those goals, set more goals, and so on.

You hold your own future in your hands, and it’s only as bright as you make it

and it’s only as bright as you make it

Maybe you’ll never be a millionaire, but that doesn’t mean you have to settle for barely getting by. If you apply yourself, keep working to improve yourself, and get yourself on the right track, you’ll be able to go a long way.

Sometimes dreams will have to be adjusted, of course, and occasionally there will be detours and setbacks, but a positive thinker — a dreamer—doesn’t give up without a fight. Be realistic in your goals. Don’t set them so high that you’re disappointed when you fall short. But don’t set them too low either.

Another element of success is to be happy with what you currently have, even while you’re striving for more. Don’t waste all your time dreaming, but instead, make your life the dream. Be content, but not so content that you stop trying to do and be better.

Furthermore, don’t fall for the temptation of instant gratification. Anything worth having is also worth waiting for.

Keeping Up with the Joneses – An Exercise in Futility

A life of luxury and excess isn’t for everyone. Be happy with what you have, and don’t worry about the possessions of others

the possessions of others

You’re the only one who knows what you need to be happy. You may see a friend’s new car and think it’s nice, but it doesn’t mean you need to run out and find a car that’s nicer. You can appreciate that your brother’s wife is beautiful, but it doesn’t make your wife any less attractive.

The point is, trying to compete with other people will never result in anything good. While it’s natural to feel envious of others at times, you need to look beyond those petty feelings to your own future. Trying to keep up with other people will have you continually playing catch up, and never taking time to enjoy your own life.

Rather than engaging in competition with your neighbors, friends, or enemies, you would be wiser to spend your time working to be a better you. Try to improve on your strengths as well as your weaknesses. Work on your relationships and your career. Chances are, the people you compare yourself too aren’t really any happier than you. In fact, they may be envious of something you have as well.

Even if you don’t have everything you want – yet – remind yourself of what you do have, and be happy within yourself. You can keep working toward your goals, but still be satisfied, even if it’s only temporarily, with what you have right now.
