Is your goal to find authentic happiness in 2013?
This is an exciting time of year for most people. Those of us who desire to achieve are goal focused right now. We’ve created a list for 2013 and are excited about the things we want to accomplish.
However, if you aren’t careful, three thieves will rob you of the opportunity to achieve what you desire – and of living the life you dream of.
Who are those thieves of authentic happiness?
The first one is Shoulda. He sneaks around at the most surprising times. When you’re on a roll to getting one of those great goals accomplished, he jumps in there and stops the progress. You didn’t know he was coming and you know it’s happened when you hear yourself saying, “I Shoulda known! I Shoulda known that was going to get me off track. I Shoulda known this was going to be harder than I thought. I Shoulda known I couldn’t do this!”
But you’re determined, so you tighten those boot straps, you take a deep breath and you plow ahead, going after it against all odds. It’s tough, not real easy, but you’re determined.
And then Woulda shows up. You know it when you begin to hear yourself telling others, “I Woulda gotten that done if only the opportunity to (do that thing you’ve always wanted to do) hadn’t happened. I couldn’t let that pass! Otherwise, I Woulda gotten that done on time and stayed on schedule. I Woulda maintained my momentum.”
But you lost it. At least for the time being. Of course you can always try to get that momentum back.
So you decide that’s exactly what you’re going to do. Get back on the horse and ride it. If you do you could get back on track and make up for lost time. You Coulda done that to begin with, but Woulda got in the way.
You Coulda refocused and gotten motivated to get back on track, yet you’re bummed that you’re now so far behind. It Woulda been so much easier if you hadn’t let (that special thing) get in the way.
You Shoulda stayed on track so that you Coulda achieved this goal. It Woulda felt so good! But now you won’t experience authentic happiness.
BEWARE! Shoulda, Woulda and Coulda are out to get you. Just like they are out to get me. They are the bane of every well-meaning person who has something great they want to accomplish, yet Shoulda, Woulda and Coulda do their best job not to let that happen.
You have been warned. What are you going to do to prevent them from entering your home? You could board up the doors, but that won’t stop them. They will seep in through the cracks, the places where ugly bugs seem to mysteriously enter.
Call in pest control! Call in the forces! Keep them out at all cost!
If you don’t, you’ll be sitting in the exact same place 365 days from now knowing that you Shoulda gotten that done. You Woulda done it if only (that thing) hadn’t prevented it. And you Coulda started again at any time but you didn’t.
Shoulda, Woulda and Coulda steal your life. They steal your dreams. They sap you of the pride and self esteem that comes from doing what you know you should be doing. They rob you of confidence and feeling worthy of the blessings that come your way.
And they rob you of Happiness. Shoulda, Woulda and Coulda hold the keys to unlock your door to Authentic Happiness.
If I were you I’d go beat them up and steal those keys back. You’ll be Happy you did!
