Finding happiness…

Quoted from one of the seminars given by Anthony Robbins.


  1. Love
  2. Certainty
  3. Uncertainty or the need for some adventure
  4. Significance
  5. Growth
  6. Contribution

This topic is just part of a twelve-hour seminar.  Out of that, this discussion is what got me thinking.  Identifying my most basic needs, my top two, how it controls the direction of my life and what has it cost me?  At the end of the day, we all are searching for what makes us feel good.  We search for the meaning of true happiness and hope to find it.

As Tony Robbins said… “Life is not about getting what you want.  It’s about becoming more.  Happiness is temporary moments, fulfillment is what we need to go after because it lasts.”

  1. That happened to me one time. We had a seminar at work about dealing with change.. We read the book ‘Who Moved My Cheese?’ and I don’t think any of us was very impressed with the seminar.. then all the sudden, he changes direction entirely and asks us, ‘What would you do if you could not fail?’…

    The question totally blew me away because.. as ‘happy’ as I thought I was with life, I don’t think that I’d ever asked myself that up til that moment.

    I quit my job, moved away from the city I had lived all my life (pretty much), went back to school, started trying to find a hobby that I really enjoy, took some awesome cooking classes, taught myself how to do some awesome stuff, then started my blog.

    One question literally changed my life. Kind of awesome when you think about it that way. 🙂

    1. What would I do if I could not fail?… everything I ever wanted and dreamt of (Excluding riding a magic carpet over Paris, being granted three wishes by a genie and to be taller).

      The questions that stop me at my tracks are … What do you want be? What is it you want to do? My challenge – there are many things I want to be and do, 24 hours in one day simply isn’t enough.

      Seriously though, good for you for following your heart. Time’s too precious, NOW is always a good time to make yesterday worthwhile.

  2. Christine, I love the picture. Also, I love the quote by Tony Robbins.

    I love that question that the Confluent Kitchen Posed, “What would you do it you could not fail?”

    I believe I would be a full time writer and artist.

    Thanks for a great “food for thought” this morning!
