Finding your happy place on demand is something that needs to be learned to be successful in sales and life in general. For some, it’s playing a favourite song. Others go for a walk or drive. We were talking with friends recently and one mentioned he used to like going for long drives. I remember as a young adult hopping into my car and going for a long drive with a tape of my favourite songs.
It’s important to learn how to find your happy place on demand.
What is a “happy place”?
Your “happy place” isn’t physical. It’s that place in your mind that you go to and all your worries fall away. Your mind clears and you can focus on whatever it is you are about to face knowing you can conquer whatever is in your path.
Sometimes we become so overwhelmed with situations, tasks or people and just can’t seem to find our focus. Everything seems too difficult and you have no idea how to get back on track or overcome the obstacle in front of you. That’s when you have to stop and hop on that path to your “happy place”. Hit the highway, turn up the radio, dance a jig. Whatever it takes.
When should you go to your happy place?
You should go to your happy place any time you feel overwhelmed:
- Just before meeting with a prospect.
- After a difficult day at work or home.
- When you suffer a loss.
- Any time you feel you are in a dark place.
You should go to your happy place whenever you need to.
Why should you learn how to find your happy place?
When you know how to get to your happy place on demand, it’s less likely that you will dive into a bottle and may well help you avoid falling into a depression. This is easier said than done. I’ll warn you in advance, most people won’t understand how you can do that and will think that you are hiding from reality. Maybe you are but is that a bad thing if it helps you get back on track?
Don’t let yourself become too overwhelmed. Goof off once in a while, it’s good for your mental health and ultimately your physical well being.
Take control. You deserve to be happy!
Make it a great day,
