143 | Happiness & Habits: Unlocking the Secret to Personal Success

In today’s episode we are diving into an essential yet often overlooked aspect of creative life: happiness and how our habits shape our sense of well-being. I’m here to share some personal insights and strategies for managing the relentless pace of social media and finding joy in our creative endeavors.

What Does Happiness Really Mean?

As creatives, we often link our happiness to our success and visibility on social media. But is this sustainable? Can we truly be happy when our self-worth seems tied to likes and follows? These questions have been on my mind, especially as I’ve witnessed the toll it takes not just on my work, but on my personal life as well.

The Social Media Rollercoaster

Navigating social media as a content creator is no small feat. Between algorithm shifts and the new pay-to-play policies of platforms like Meta, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.

The Power of Keeping Promises to Ourselves

I believe that happiness is deeply connected to the promises we keep, especially the ones we make to ourselves. Think of these not just as habits but as small commitments that build the foundation for our happiness and success. If we treat these personal promises with the same seriousness as promises made to a loved one, we start to see profound changes in our lives.

Creating and Sustaining Positive Habits

One of the most impactful ways to foster happiness is to develop and maintain positive habits. This means setting realistic goals and breaking them down into manageable actions. Whether it’s promising to engage more authentically on social media, taking time to be present with family, or dedicating time each day to our personal well-being, these habits can transform our outlook and our outcomes.

Reflections and Future Aspirations

To make these concepts practical, I like to think about what makes me happiest and how I can achieve more of that joy. This involves visualizing where I want to be in the future—be it five years from now or just a few months ahead—and planning the steps to get there. It’s about reverse-engineering our happiness based on our current actions and habits.
