EP116 Why You Should Set Happiness Goals, Too
In this episode, we talk about different types of goals for life. Don’t forget to work towards pure joy & happiness in all that you do.
KC: Welcome to The Business of Life Podcast. My name is Keith Callahan, your host.
Today we’re talking about joy setting. What the heck is joy setting, right? So a lot of us are really good at setting goals. We crush our goals and we’re really good at getting things accomplished and doing things in our lives and meeting the deadlines and meeting all these things that we set out to accomplish in our life. Some of us are and some of us are just bad at that stuff.
But regardless of if you’re good at it or if you’re bad at it, what I want to share with you today is sometimes we set all those goals and we go about them and we conquer them. But it doesn’t bring joy and happiness to our lives.
One of the things that I learned a while back is we have to be very clear on what it actually is that we want in our lives, what it is that brings us happiness. I think the second part of that is more important. It’s what’s going to bring us happiness because sometimes we want these things, but we don’t really think about whether or not it’s going to bring happiness to us.
So rather than just setting goals to beat last year or earn more income or help more people or do more of this or do more of that, whatever it is that you’re setting the goals for, take some time to really sit back and think about what is it that’s going to actually bring joy into your life.
So for me with my business, I set a lot of goals with my business. I set a lot of goals with my spiritual growth and I set a lot of goals with my family. Then I also set a lot of goals for who I want to be as a human being and the “who I want to be as a human being” comes first. The “what I am becoming” really comes first and then I think about – I don’t really like traveling that much. I like spending time with my family. I like working from a home office. I like having my own schedule.
I could have a much bigger business right now. I can have a bigger business. I could be flying around the country, speaking at live events and I just don’t want to do it. It would be nice. It would be fun. I would enjoy it. But I don’t want to leave my family. I have young kids right now and I love where I live. I love the life that we have. I don’t want to be doing all that. It doesn’t make me happy. It makes me stressed out.
So what is it that’s going to bring joy in your life? Create your life around that versus setting goals to have the bigger house, the nicer – I’m telling you, that stuff isn’t going to bring you lasting joy. Well, maybe for you it will. I don’t know.
But instead of just setting goals to get more, be more, more, more, more, more, more, what is going to bring you happiness in your life? All right. That is today’s message. Instead of just goal setting, make sure there’s joy in those goals. Joy set. What’s going to bring the most happiness in my life? What are the different things that I can do to bring joy to my life?
Have a beautiful, beautiful day. See you on the next episode. Peace!
KC: Hey, Keith here, and today I have a free gift for you. Listen this free gift is a list of the 12 most influential books that I’ve ever read. These are the books that have helped me to create the mindset, learn the philosophies, learn the skills to really create this big, beautiful, life that we’re living now.
I read a crazy amount of books, I really do. I’ve probably read thousands of books and these are the top 12 books that – they’re the ones that I go to, they’re the ones that I work with over, and over, and over again. They are highlighted, outlined, dog-eared. And I put this list together for you because I want it to be a shortcut.
I don’t want you to have to – you don’t have to go out and read the thousands and thousands of books. These are the 12 that I highly recommend. I have a detailed review for each book, explaining why I recommend them, why I like them, when I worked with them in my life, what part of my life they helped me to improve.
So I put this together for you, and made it super each for you to get this list. All you have to do is send a text to the number 33444 and then in the body of that text, type in “12books” with no space. So that’s the number “12books”. Again, send the text message to the number, address it to 33444 and then type in “12books” as the message and just send that. And that’ll get you setup to receive those top 12 most influential books that have had the biggest impact on my life.
KC: Today’s episode is brought to you by our sister podcast, All About Beachbody Coaching. So All About Beachbody Coaching really allows us to do this podcast without having all those annoying commercials in the beginning for you. So All About Beachbody Coaching, the Beachbody business that Amy and I run, actually funds this podcast.
So yes, it does cost money to run this podcast, we do not charge you anything, we don’t throw in commercials or anything like that, it really is, it’s funded by our business and by our other podcast, All About Beachbody Coaching. And for me, I’m just eternally grateful for this opportunity because it’s allowed me to really create the life that I love to live.
It’s given me the opportunity to do what I want, when I want, with who I want, and even deeper than that, it’s allowed me to help others to create the same for themselves. It’s allowed me to help hundreds of other people become part time or full time Beachbody coaches, to leave that corporate 9 to 5 job and create passive income in their lives.
And really there’s nothing like that. It’s cool when you have success, it’s so much more rewarding when you help others. So I mention this or a few reasons, the first reason is, that’s actually the way that I work with people and mentor people. I don’t do anything outside of Beachbody coaching because I know that it’s such a powerful life changing tool.
So if you’re curious about working with me, interested in working one-on-one, interested in creating the type of life that you wanna live, I suggest swinging over there. The other reason is, even if somebody’s just curious, like you’ve heard about Beachbody, you know there’s a lot of Beachbody coaches out there. Maybe some of them you get a little annoyed with.
It really dives into what this business is really about, which is life transformation. So if you’re just curious, swing over there. And then the other piece is, if you’re really considering becoming a Beachbody coach, I highly, highly recommend you listen to that first.
Alright, much love guys. Again, that is the All About Beachbody Coaching Podcast, our sister podcast.
ANNOUNCER: Thank you for listening to the Business of Life Podcast. Apply what you learned today and you’ll be one step closer to creating the life you love to live.
