How to be successful in 2018

So what do you consider as success? and what makes you happy? Do the two match?

There is the old saying that on our deathbed nobody wishes they spent more time at work . Work for most people is a necessity – and if we enjoy it then so much the better. If we won a million pounds then would we still work ? or would what we do with our lives change? So is success at work what makes you happy? Does being chairman rock your world?

What else makes us happy?

It doesn’t have to be about money , position or power – what about other achievements? Being a good parent? A happy marriage?  True friendships? A fulfilled life? Helping other people?  Fitness? How much effort do we put into these?

Do you know what makes you happy ? And what stops you being happy ?

Ask yourself some questions :

  • What do you enjoy doing ? and what makes you happy ?
  • How can you do more / get more of that ?
  • What is the first thing you are going to do to get more happiness ?
  • What makes you unhappy ? How can you get less of that ?
  • What are the 5 things you want to do more of ?
  • What are the five things you want to do less of ?
Look at your answers and now set your goals for 2018


Happiness is an achievement in itself – so this year really think hard about what makes you happy and resolve to do more of that .
