Many self-help gurus
have written about the importance of health, wealth and relationships
in achieving happiness in life. I am no exception to them – I agree
with this statement, although I don’t stop there – I believe there
are other things as well in life that can bring happiness. However,
it cannot be doubted that health, wealth and relationships are three
of the “biggies” when it comes to achieving your dreams!

Health

It is true that “health is gold” and “if
you’ve got your health, you’ve got everything” in life! If you
are sick, your body broken and you are subject to expensive medical
treatments and afflicted by pain, it is hard to achieve happiness in
life. It is important to take care of your health. Also, NOT taking
care of your health means you don’t think your health is important.
Going deeper, this indicates to me that you do not think you are
important enough as a person to take care of your health. So at the
root of all unhealthy behaviours is a self-esteem issue, a lack of
self-belief and a lack of love in your life, either from others or
from yourself. So it’s important to your personal development to keep
pushing the boundaries in your life, and working on making your body
the best it can be is an integral part of that!

Wealth

Although “money can’t buy happiness” and
greed for material things will not satisfy you in the end,
nevertheless we should develop a utilitarian attitude towards money,
using it to achieve our dreams and become the person we’ve always
wanted to be. In order to do this, it is sometimes necessary to
question the traditional “do well at school-go to university-get
a job-save for retirement” model that we’ve all been brought up
with. These days, you need to be smart with your cash and come up
with other ways to make money that don’t require you to work all
hours to make ends meet. You can achieve financial independence and
start living the life you’ve always wanted! Start living the new
dream of prosperity!

Relationships

The people we love, live with, associate with and
spend time with are an important part of our lives. However, finding
a suitable person to meet is becoming more and more difficult these
days. Without knowing how to attract your perfect lover or find the
love of your life, you are seriously impeding your ability to find
true love and happiness in your life. To do that, you need to
understand that relationships are heavily based on your own beliefs
about yourself, since people tend to hang out with people who are
similar to themselves. So if the dream lover you want has qualities
significantly from your qualities, you are going to have to develop
those qualities IN YOURSELF first before you can attract someone like
that.

So health, wealth and relationships are three of the
biggest challenges you need to master on your journey to achieving
your dream life!
