Willing to take a moment to honestly look at yourself?

If you have been reading for a while you will be well familiar with the question, “do you want to be right or do you want to be happy?” I love this question, it gives instant clarity.

If you are willing, take a moment, look within.

See all the places where you want to be right more than you value your own happiness, or for that matter, the happiness of another.

Look at how you might lose your cool to win an argument.

Or how you might sulk and get grumpy because your partner did something wrong to you.

Or how you “need” someone to understand you so you push your point of view across.

I really hope I don’t sound dramatic, but the Paris killings - they are the extreme conclusion of putting wanting to be right before being happy.

What kind of world would we live in if all the people put happiness first?

Look within.

What can you do to make sure you personally prioritise being happy rather than trying to be right?
