Hooked On A Feeling

Posted by Tom Locke on June 22nd, 2017 filed in General

Over the years I have written a number of entries on one of my favourite subjects – happiness.

The bottom line about happiness is the fact that it’s a choice – your choice, whether to be happy or not.

From time to time I receive some great insight from San Diego-based Lee Silber (www.leesilber.com), an amazing author, keynote speaker and overall good guy.

He recently put out a mini book, “Hooked On A Feeling”, that offers ideas of simple things you can do in order to make you feel better … or as I like to say, “happy“.

Lee says in his book:

When we are asked what we really want (or want more of) we will often say things like, have more money—make that a ton of money—have more time and less to do, to love and be loved, own a business or write a book, travel, lose weight or get in better shape, become famous, give back and make a difference, own a bigger home and a better car, and the list goes on.

What do we really want? A feeling. Think about it. What does having a ton of money mean to most of us? It means we feel more secure and have less to worry about. We will feel more comfortable. More money means we have more freedom to do what we want. It means we will feel more confident and be respected by others. More money means we could do things for others which makes us feel good. I think you see where I’m going with this. What we are chasing is a feeling.

And, as Lee points out in his book, chasing this feeling is not reliant on money. In fact the ideas he puts forth, that we all can employ, take a minimal amount of time and are fun.
