JP Sears is back for round two!
If you haven’t checked out last week’s interview with JP, you should go back and listen to it. It’s a fun conversation and he shares some wonderful stories. Today we really dig into what happiness is, why people tend to look for happiness in the wrong places, and how to cultivate your own greatness.
This episode is part of the Happiness Series. We have been taught to believe that we can not choose to be happy because happiness is something that can only be earned – that’s not true, and I hope these amazing entrepreneurs will help you choose to find happiness. Doing so will give you an advantage in business, relationships, and life in general.
JP’s entrepreneurial journey didn’t begin until he started believing in himself, and using that belief productively. There are millions of people who believe in themselves, but it’s much more difficult to cultivate that belief.
Start by doing things you’ve never done before. Put yourself in a situation where you are required to give yourself more support and more belief than ever before. You won’t enhance your self-belief unless you give yourself a good reason.
For a big wave surfer, the 30-foot wave is a good reason. It’s a high-pressure environment that allows the surfer to become extra present and enter a flow state, which they may not be able to access without that environment.
You need to create a big wave for yourself – we are incredibly resourceful beings, but we can’t mine deeper resources unless we put ourselves in a situation where more resources are required.
Similarly, you need to have the right mindset and set yourself up to find happiness. Too often, people look for happiness in all the wrong places: what we do, what we have, what we own, material possessions, status, etc.
But happiness is found in what you are, not not what you do or what you have. If you cultivate your greatness, you will likely find happiness growing too.
