Learning to Be a Happier Human : Accepting Where You Are

June is an anniversary month for me.

It’s been one year since I started on this “Tony Robbins journey.”  Last summer I attended my first conference and fell in love with the energy, the people, and the opportunity for growth.

Being on this journey has helped me to become a happier human.

I hope by sharing what I have learned over the past year, I will help you to move forward along your journey of becoming a happier human too.

As we are being more true to ourselves, peeling back some of the layers of our habits, and aligning our actions with who we really are, we are creating a happier life.

What could derail us?


Have you ever compared yourself to someone else and then beat yourself up about not being “as good” as they are?

When we are comparing ourselves to other people we are not living in the present.

We are not owning our talents and abilities, and where we are on this journey RIGHT NOW.

It’s very easy for any of us to look at someone else and think something like “I’m not like her. I can never be as good as her.”


We don’t know anything about “her.”  We don’t know the amount of work that “she” has put in or what strategies “she” has learned or what skills “she” has developed.

We’re just seeing a result and comparing ourselves to that.

That’s not fair.

Stop that downward spiral and do this:

  • Give yourself some grace.
  • Own where you are now.
  • See what you need to do next.
  • Ask for help if you need it.

You’re not supposed to be perfect. If you’re starting a new plan, routine, job, or relationship, then it’s OKAY to have no clue what you’re doing or have bumps along the way.

Trust that you will handle the situation at hand, and you will grow into an even better version of yourself.

Keep showing up.

Showing up is 90% of the battle. {yes, I made up that statistic.}


Action: Practice updating your language and your thinking by saying “I am practicing.”  or “I am learning.” or “I am growing.”
