Det er kan hende ikke det samme for alle, men vi ønsker oss det likevel alle sammen, innerst inne…
Det å definere sin egen lykke og ta ansvar for denne kan være et fint mål eller del av din visjon på en veldig spennende selvutviklingsreise (Life Coaching + Intuitiv Coaching). For meg er det fantastisk fint å få være med-passasjer på din reise… hvor jeg ønsker velkommen til “MS Lykke”, med deg som kaptein om bord, og hvor jeg vil har rollen som styrmann/coach underveis.
Nedenfor finner du noen fakta om lykke basert på undersøkelser fra 2014 og 2015. Kjenner du deg igjen i dette?
Lykken er nemlig…
- Like det man gjør til vanlig, og å føle seg motivert til å nå sine mål
- Ha trygge relasjoner og kjærlighet i livet
- Håndtere økonomien slik at man reduserer stress og øker en følelse av trygghet
- Trives der man bor, føle seg trygg og ha en plass i lokalsamfunnet
- Ha en god helse, samt overskudd til å gjøre ting hver dag
Undersøkelsen ble gjennomført i 2014 og baserer seg på 1.460.000 personintervjuer i 145 forskjellige land. – KILDE: TNS-Gallup
