Success and Happiness – Can You Have Both?

Success is such a buzz word! What does it even mean? Are you successful? Do you feel like a success? A very interesting subject indeed! Success will be many different things to many different people. Success is normally goal related. We achieve a goal and as such deemed successful. One of the most popular measurements of ‘success ‘i.e., by monetary value though many would challenge this theory!

Gary B. Doherty takes this a step further and asks the question. Do you achieve joy and happiness while being successful? From his research many do not. Many successful people according to Gary B. sacrifice joy and happiness in their quest for success. Gary now lives be certain ‘Success Principles ‘and coaches’ same principles to ambitious entrepreneurs globally.

Goals | Joy | Happiness

Gary B. Doherty says all three can be achieved.

“When setting goals in your business or personal life ask yourself a few questions. What does success look like to me with this goal? What does success look like and feel like to others with this goal? Especially important in personal goals. I encourage the ambitious entrepreneurs I coach to write down what success means to their partner with a specific goal, it could be money, a perfect day, a perfect date, etc. When you step outside of yourself and consider other perspectives and feelings you are more likely to experience joy and happiness while achieving ‘successes.

Gary continues ‘I ask people to write down their perfect day in detail I then ask them when the last time was, they did this and many times it’s not very often! Think about that for a second. The very day that is your perfect day and you don’t do it very often! Almost a form of self-harm!

Success Principles 

Many great personal development gurus have written many best-selling books and launched various programmes around this. Some of the most notable include the late great Bob Proctor, Jack Canfield, Brian Tracey, Tony Robins and the like.

Gary B. Doherty adds to this saying “I don’t follow anyone specifically, but I do take inspiration from everywhere. The book Think & Grow Rich definitely had a huge impact and some of the following principles are crucial for me to achieve success

Desire | Faith | Auto Suggestion 

Gary continues
“ it all starts with desire. Ask yourself how much you desire your goals, what would it mean to you to achieve them and what are you willing to sacrifice to achieve. In addition to this ask yourself ‘why’ this your goal. Go deep and peel the layers of the onion back! Next is ‘faith ‘. A lot of people lack faith in themselves. According to the book Think & Grow Rich the only known method to developing faith is ‘Auto Suggestion ‘This is the repetition of ‘affirmations ‘in the present tense as if you have already achieved your goal. The secret here is to add emotion. How does it feel? Now step in your best self and be the success you already are! “

No doubt Gary B. Doherty lives and breathes these principles and the passion is evident:
