How many times have you heard that you just need to choose happiness in order to be happy? Well, that sounds great in theory but the reality is, there is a lot more to being happy than simply making the choice. In Embracing Happy, Kimberly Yuhl encourages you to stop choosing happiness. She introduces the -ER Principle which is the idea that you don't want to be happy; you just want to be happier. You don't want to be wealthy or healthy either; you just want to be wealthier or healthier. Being happy, wealthy and healthy are big goals and big goals are hard to achieve. It causes frustration, feelings of failure, and instead of achieving your big goals, they remain elusive. The reason you don't reach your goals is because of the big goals themselves. That's not to say you shouldn't have big goals, you absolutely should. But instead of focusing on those big goals, you should focus on what needs to happen today. Progress happens when you change your big goals from a destination into a journey. It's pretty common knowledge each journey begins by taking the first step and knowing that, wouldn't you want your first step to being focused on doing something that will make you happier right now? It isn't just about happiness either. This principle applies to every aspect of your life. You might want to become an accomplished artist, writer or leader. Those are great destinations, but what if you did something right now that made you a better artist, writer or leader? Surely, you would consider that a success. Kim also introduces a process called Habit Mapping. It is the process she used to transform her life from "surface" happy to "soulful" happy in less two years. Habits are a big topic in today's self-help world, but there is a big problem with using just habits to make big changes in your life. You can implement a habit but if the foundation of your life isn't solid, no amount of habits will make your life happier. The hardest part about creating life change is knowing where to start. It is common practice for people seeking change to take the habits that work for other people and hope they will work for them too. There are two pieces of the puzzle missing though; 1. Is the action the right one? and 2. How does the action make you feel? Habit Mapping is a process designed to help you make the right change at the right time. It's important to know that no two happy lives look the same. The goal of Habit Mapping is to allow you to chart your path and stop yearning for someone else's happy while embracing your own.
