Will you be happy this year?

happinessWill you be happy this year?
Happiness makes your life better. But you do not need to wait for big things to happen in order to be happy.

 

 

In the past two years I tested a theory on my own: that small things do bring happiness. So I started to focus on those little moments or things that gave me joy, that made me smile or made others smile. And I came up with the Small Moments of Happiness concept that I believe it can be an answer to your happiness this year.

Are you proud of this year?

A reflection on 2013

Learnings from 2013

This year was a very interesting year on a professional and personal level.

And, as I told you in the short Holiday message movie that you can find below, we had our ups but we also had our downs, and I think that we should treasure even more the downs than the ups. Why?

Get the best from your relationship!

Happy couple cycling in the cityI think that learning this in school would have been useful for my whole life. But nobody taught me. I did learn a few things from my parents, but they were not always an example for a harmonious relationship. I did learn a bit during my interactions with school, university and work colleagues and then a little bit from friends or during my different relationships with a partner. Sometimes I learned the hard way, but most of the times I did not improve anything because I did not know what I was supposed to learn.

3 things I learned while my plane was crashed

“I no longer want to postpone anything in life. That urgency, that purpose, has really changed my life.”

“I no longer try to be right; I choose to be happy.”

“I regretted the time I wasted on things that did not matter with people that matter.”

Ric Elias was sitting in seat 1D of U.S. Airways Flight 1549 on January 15, 2009 headed to Charlotte, North Carolina, when a flock of Canadian geese collided with the jet.

“When the pilot said, ‘Brace for impact,’ I knew my life was over,” said Elias, “But I was given a chance.”

Watch the short TED talk below to learn the 3 things and ask yourself what can you learn from his experience too.

Get ready for holiday!

As a coach I help people reach their objectives. But sometimes we get stuck in the process because the client cannot fully focus on the future objectives: he/she is too focused on today’s problems and on the negative emotions that he/she lives daily.

And the negative emotions do not let us live fully our present and future beautiful experiences!

A “clean up” of the negative emotions and getting the learnings as resources for the future is what you need in order to be able to let some of those emotions go away. It does not mean that you will not feel anything anymore, it means that you will release what you don’t need and start your journey towards your objectives with a “light backpack”.

What does a good friend do for you?

Just a while ago I lost my motivation. Things were not so good with work, I was expecting different results even if I was doing the same thing all over again. I was not moving forward and my focus was only on the fact that I did not get those results. From my point of view, I had no learnings to take from the situation and the more I was focusing on the fact that I could not move forward, the more I felt bad and stuck. I was all over my head into the problem and I could not see anything outside!

The Last Lecture – Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams

It’s interesting how you find exactly what you need and search for. I was browsing the internet the other day with no motivation to continue my work. And I found a web talk on TED.com that amazed me, that made me stay for a full hour in front of the computer.

It’s Randy Pausch‘s last lecture at Carnegie Mellon University. He had only 3 to 6 month left to live because of a pancreatic cancer and he wanted to let something behind him. It’s not a lecture on informatics, but on life!
