Now it may look like I’m shooting myself in the foot with this post, because I help people acquire “things” that they desire and there has been a lot of discussion about the less one has the happier one is. I’m a pretty happy guy and I have very few possessions as my focus has been on freedom and enjoying life’s experiences rather than accumulating stuff. An amazing statement coming from the “Acquisitionist” for sure!
The question is can acquiring “things” bring one happiness?
It really depends on what that “thing” is! Take for example the Business Owner who has come up with a new technology to turn trash into energy and the “thing” he desires is funding to make his dream a reality because it’s not just about him it’s about making the world a better place which will touch more peoples lives and as a result bring him more happiness. For the past several months my tag line has been “Connecting People to Positive Projects” and this brings me joy because I feel I’m helping people connect to something that can actually make a difference in the world.
I know this may cost me a few clients, but for some strange reason I have to feel like I’m making a difference in everything I do including business as it’s my way of flowing in integrity. So, I’d like to sum up the idea of things and happiness in this short statement:
Does what you Desire to Acquire bring Happiness to Others?
