- Happiness is a path, not a climb
- Rediscovering what is authentic
- Letting go of getting it "right"
Happiness is a process, not a prize that is the byproduct of achievements.
Reclaiming the person we were before we were told what we "should" like or do.
Shifting away a corrective thought process and letting go of the need to get the A in whatever situation.
I call it the "good on paper" life.

The "good on paper" life
If only life felt as good as the resume looked...
You've followed all the instructions. The good grades, the good job, the accolades: done everything "right," but don't have that satisfied feeling they promised was at the end of the rainbow.
You've held up your end of the bargain, so you ask:
Where is my happy?

So if you are ready to discover a life beyond what's
"good on paper"
My life used to look very good on paper.
I got straight A's, was a decorated athlete, even got recruited to play football for my college. Once I was there I continued my campaign of filling my life with everything I thought "should" be in it. I did well enough that I got a job at an exclusive financial recruiting firm after school. All I had to do was wait for the successful feeling I knew was due once I had "made it."
One year in I was the most miserable person. I couldn't understand what was happening. I had done everything "right" but I was not fulfilled. I felt ilke I had been cheated somehow. It was at that point I realized that while I was going "great," I was grading myself off of someone else's rubric.
Since then has been a journey to discover who the real me was. Not just the person I "should" be. I realized there were lots of people living lives that were good on paper.
I have dedicated my craft helping people refine their thought processes and actions to discover themselves and living fulfilling lives.
