“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
– Mahatma Gandhi”
Integrity in our lives is developed by constantly evaluating:
- the way we think,
- the way we speak,
- and, the way we act.
As we are able to bring these into harmony, we develop our authenticity and grow our happiness. Relooking at our perspectives and our motivations gives us a chance to be honest and see what we possibly couldn’t see before as we now have the benefit of experience that we didn’t have before. It can also afford us solutions to something we may have seen as a never-ending problem, but with a fresh perspective and insight we can see better outcomes.
Being willing to ask ourselves these tough questions is how integrity and authenticity become a key factor to our happiness.
Looking at your frustrations and failures gives you a chance to engage those feelings and pinpoint areas that are not aligned, and may be holding us back from happiness.
When you’re authentic about how you feel you become real about your life and give yourself a chance to create more happiness in your life.
If we avoid hard questions and skate along the surface of life, our happiness will be superficial with gaps in the way that we think, speak and behave. Critical thinking and assessment helps us live our true purpose and make plans and decisions that bring these into alignment with our dreams, aspirations and long-term goals.
Creating a financial portfolio that is both robust and flexible requires us to be as honest as we can with ourselves – it needs to be consistent with our life values and goals. This is how, together, we can co-create options that will best benefit you.
We know that you need to set plans that make sense to you and that are best for you and your financial situation in order for you to thrive – this contributes to your happiness. We thrive in life through doing what feels right to us (as opposed to being told what we should do or feeling like our actions are out of kilter with our thoughts), and to get this right we need to be able to bring harmony to our thoughts, words and actions.
