From an early age, most of us are raised to believe that success equals happiness. We work hard to get good grades, finish school, and land that fantastic job. Only to find that we're still not happy and something is missing. 

Have you ever felt like something is still missing from your career or life? 

Did you climb the corporate ladder in the hope that as you gained more success you'd find more happiness? 

If you've ever wondered if success can equal happiness then check out this epidode of UQTV.

You know how people say timing is everything, well this UQTV segment was exactly what I needed to hear this morning. I loved the simplicity of the message and the three simple strategies: all of which I used to practice but tend to slip away when workloads get high. Thank you for the reminder Heidi.

My tip is SMILE. It sometimes takes real effort when you are weary or stress levels are high, but just like happiness leads to success, I have found that smiling (even when its hard) can lift my mood and make things better.

Hi Shanthi thanks so much for your comment on today's episode of UQTV.
Sometimes the simplest things are the best and it is great to be reminded of them when we are under pressure or overwhelmed.
Smiling indeed can change the chemistry of our body and make us feel better - it's the cheapest and most legal way I know to get high!

Success comes from happiness. Good food for thought.

I love how you talk about working hard and the false believe that success = happiness. I've not thought about having to "work" for happiness but I see your point.

My number 1 tip for happiness is to bring back a fun activity from your childhood. I spent so many hours on the swing set at school and in my backyard. Now I do aerial suspension yoga and I'm that giddy girl again as I swing...

Know when it is time to stop and take a break.
Even five minutes of eyes closed and deep breathing.
Makes all the difference in the world in allowing
your body to handle stressful situations.

Another great video. I like the way you make the message short and targeted. Easy to understand.

My #1 tip for happiness is to practice gratitude. Keep a journal of everything you are grateful for each day. The more you focus on the good things in your life, the happier you'll be.

When I was younger and just starting out in the career world, I DID equate happiness to a degree with the amount of success I achieved. And you know what ... it was EXHAUSTING!

When I stopped looking toward the future and new accomplishments to create happiness, and instead chose to find happiness in the present, life got so much better.

By finding happiness in the present, in all the little things, in living life simply with those you love, by enjoying the moment, and by taking time to be gracious for each day, I have much less stress, much more fun, and surprise! The success still come :)
