A lot of online marketers want to succeed online, because we often think that success leads to happiness.
Actually, it’s the other way around: Happiness leads to success.
One way of becoming happy is by minimizing stress, using the tactic of focusing on the NOW.
While we acknowledge that our thoughts will oftentimes drift to events in the past, or dwell on some fear of the future (even if such scenarios don’t usually happen), we can also comfort ourselves with the idea that these random thoughts are like clouds that dot the sky.
Thoughts, like clouds, come and go. Simply acknowledge your thoughts and feelings.
When we focus on the NOW, however, such as when we focus on our breath, we are able to find peace in the midst of the pressures of life.
It is in that environment where we more easily find happiness.
In the process, the state of being happy brings us closer to success, and makes our online marketing journey more enjoyable.
The next time you’re feeling anxious or stressed, take a few minutes to focus on your breath.
