I’ll Be Happy When

We, including most top achievers, tend to motivate ourselves by withholding praise until we achieve our objectives. We erroneously believe that this is inspiring, or we fear that if we are not critical of ourselves, we will grow complacent and regress. But the issue is that we are hindering our performance. On the other side, we are goal-oriented and skilled at sacrificing the immediate for the future. This is why we may set objectives and attain them despite the difficulty of the work. Nonetheless, it forces us to postpone our joy; our happiness becomes a hostage of someday, which does not materialize on our calendars.

Negative Happiness – When we condition our enjoyment on completing a task or resolving a problem, we essentially refuse to be joyful until the issue is resolved or the goal is reached. Upon achieving a goal, we often experience relief. This is not, however, genuine happiness. In addition, this emotion is transitory. In fact, this phenomenon is known as negative happiness.

It is not motivation –  When happiness is defined solely in terms of goals and outcomes, fear and worry become our key motivators. These negative feelings inhibit our creativity and optimism. On the other hand, these are the abilities we need to create solutions, establish plans, overcome obstacles, and identify new chances. Therefore, by tying our enjoyment to achieving a result, we eliminate the superpowers we need the most.

Five Strategies – There are five methods that would assist you in escaping this trap. These tactics will help you feel more at ease and certain that your aims are clear, that you’re making progress, and that you’re enjoying the journey with your loved ones.
