How to Find Happiness: Being Fully Engaged

How to Find Happiness: Being Fully Engaged

Rachel & Shane Krider’s third episode of their personal development podcast teaches you how to find happiness. Below is a snippet of the podcast where Shane talks about being fully engaged in order to find your happiness.

Here’s the thing, we start out with the word “vigilance” because there’s intensity. Because things happen and you’re excited. But you’re also afraid. You’re trying new things. You’re way outside the box where things can go right or things can go wrong.

If you’re doing it to chase your carrot, it’s all worth it. It’s worth it if you’re doing it to avoid the pain, to try to stay ahead. If you end up in the confusion and you’re trying to follow the path of the masses, it’s not rewarding enough. That’s when it’s not rewarding enough to keep your attention.

Think of it like this, it’s like trying to pay attention to a boring movie. If you’re watching a movie that’s boring, or even painful to watch, but there’s going to be a test at the end of it, your vigilance is so low. If it doesn’t mean enough to you, you’re just the first challenge that comes your way and there will be a whole bunch of challenges on the pursuit of happiness, to success, etc.If you’re not following your purpose, you’ll be all ready to quit whereas if you’re on track following your purpose, that challenge will be like, “bring it.”

That’s it, it’s being fully engaged. How do you become fully engaged? Our kids are being diagnosed with ADD and a big part of that is just, is the kid engaged? Is the kid interested in what’s going on in front of them? As adults, were exactly the same way and if we’re not creating a life, if we’re not chasing some things in our life that fully are capable of engaging our intention, we’re not going to be vigilant. We’re constantly going to be prodded by the universe by whatever is going on our life. There’s constantly going to be things that are sneaking up on us and with the ability to cause us some damage, some harm, it’s going to require us to get vigilant when we really don’t want to. We experience that as stress. We don’t want to be in a stressful place. You want to be in a place where we’re having fun.

How to Find Happiness: The Never-Ending Journey

How to Find Happiness: The Never-Ending Journey

Rachel & Shane Krider’s third episode of their personal development podcast teaches you how to find happiness. Below is a snippet of the podcast where Shane explains that finding your purpose in life makes for a happier lifestyle.

“Winning isn’t everything, but wanting to is.” – Vince Lombardi

Vince Lombardi was a very successful American football coach. I’m not a big sports fan, but I love the quotes, the mentality, and the thinking behind some of these coaches.

So, winning isn’t everything but wanting to is. Again, if you’re not on your purpose, you’re just hanging out, trying to have the superficial part of life, the day-to-day, be the thing that feeds you and makes you happy. If you just live a day-to-day life, there’s no bigger picture you’re striving for. To keep yourself in a vigilant, happy, enthusiastic, vital place where you’re alert, aware, and loving life, you need to have a purpose. That desire to want to create something is what allows you to stay vigilant.

Think about it this way; if you want to become a yoga instructor, you know that becoming good at yoga is probably one of the steps on a greater path. Why do you want to become good at yoga? Maybe because you have suffered physically and don’t feel like you’ve had the mind-body-spirit connection that you’ve wanted to have. You feel like you’ve missed out on this part of life and now that you’re finally doing it, you can see the value in it. You want to become an instructor because you want to share that with other people.

The purpose of all this is to share it with others so you become the embodiment of the demonstration of what you can do with it. At the end of the day, there’s a lot of different ways you can share that with other people. You can open your own yoga studio, or you could do yoga YouTube videos. Keep climbing the ladder; it’s going to take you on a journey of learning new things and accomplishing new goals. It’s a never-ending journey that continues to make you better, and you have more successes and wins.You start meeting other people that are well known in the space and masterminding with those people.

That’s the key. Having a purpose is the carrot that continues to drive you toward happiness. Embracing this carrot allows you to know that whatever your purpose is, you can still reach it no matter what setbacks life throws at you. Continue to make strides toward your purpose, and you’ll be able to stay in a much happier place.

There’s a saying that goes like this: “People without a purpose parish” and I would certainly agree.

How to Find Happiness: Positive Vigilance

How to Find Happiness: Positive Vigilance

Rachel & Shane Krider’s third episode of their personal development podcast teaches you how to find happiness. Below is a snippet of the podcast where Shane discusses how positive vigilance opens your mind to allow you to see the new opportunities in your life.

Positive vigilance is where you’re playing your game, you’re having fun, you’re going for a goal, and every little win is adding up to something bigger. Even if you have a setback, you’ve got enough wins to gain some momentum. You know even with those setbacks, you’re going to go somewhere and you start to get your basis of happiness in morale. Every day starts to revolve around the destination that you’re heading toward, not the day-to-day strife that you’re coming in contact with. It’s a much more balanced place to come from.

How do you find what your purpose is? You get out there, you start looking around, and it’s like following a trail of breadcrumbs. My trail of breadcrumbs started with “I am disappointed with the amount of money I make because I cannot have the things that I’m passionate about.” I hate to admit this, but it’s superficial stuff for me. I’ve always wanted a cool car, ever since I was young. Cars, motorcycles, anything with a motor in it is basically what I wanted. But I could never afford anything that was just even halfway cool, so that drove me to want to play a bigger game when it comes to making money.

I felt limited. I thought I’m a high school dropout, I’ve had 23 jobs by the time I was 23 years old, and I was fired from almost every single one of them. I had people telling me I was lazy and I needed to get my crap together and have some discipline. I would look at that, and all I could say was, “Wow, they’re right. But I don’t know what to do about it.” You see, I wasn’t trying to be a slacker, believe it or not. Looking back at me at 26, I was doing the best I could on every level, and it was still crap.

So I began following the trail of breadcrumbs. What did I want? Well, I wanted more money. Superficial, I know, but what the funny thing about superficial things is they lead to the deeper things eventually.

To begin following the trail of breadcrumbs to making more money, I had to open my mind. I tried to get jobs in roles that I wasn’t familiar with playing, such as sales. I applied for a hundred sales jobs and couldn’t get hired at any of them. That’s when I decided if I’m going to do it, I’m going to do it myself. I’m going to start a business. I had to open my mind to opportunities around me to allow that positive vigilance to manifest.
