One of the challenges for those who like to achieve is reconciling success and happiness. Most contemporary success formulas, science or systems have an element of drive or doing. Most of the happiness schools of thought talk about being present and living in the moment and being.
This creates a clash...or does it?
Success requires a sense of urgency, a drive to complete a need to fulfill. Indeed it often places satisfaction or happiness in the future somewhere. When we achieve x we will be truly happy.
Happiness on the other hand requires a sense of satisfaction, completeness and being. There is nothing to achieve as you have it all around you.
And that's the challenge when you set them up in opposition, you get lost in either domain.
It's not an either/or proposition, it's an and/also one. It's about walking and chewing gum. Set the goals and intent but then let go and enjoy the process you put in place.
The key idea to mesh these two worlds is to study or consider manifestation as an idea. It's about intent and action. Or put another way, you can pray as much as you like but you have to move your feet as well.
