I find there are two kinds of people in this world. Those who are looking for life, and those who are producing life. There are those who are endlessly pursuing happiness, and those who regularly produce it. Whether money, possessions, career, or a relationship, too many of us are in search of what we “think” will make us happy.

We are looking for life in all the wrong places, but I’m not talking about the obvious forms of escape like alcohol or drugs. When I say the “wrong places,” I’m referring to those things that we think are “healthy” forms of happiness, but they never deliver happiness to us.

You’re Living on Acres of Diamonds

The ideal job won’t do it. The ideal relationship won’t do it. Having enough money won’t do it. Why? It’s because we know people who have these things yet are still depressed or dissatisfied, and some commit suicide.

Am I saying that money, possessions, position, or a relationship won’t help? Not at all. They certainly enhance the life experience, but they have no power in themselves to produce life and happiness in you.

As in the famous story Acres of Diamonds, a man searches for treasures elsewhere only to find he was already living on acres of diamonds. You see, you’re not supposed to be searching for life; you’re supposed to be reproducing life yourself.

That’s what we’re exploring all this week in my Life Domination Online Coaching Group in the 5-message series, Looking for Life in All the Wrong Places. As always, I show the first episode of each week’s series for free right here on my web site, and you can watch Episode 1 right now:

If you’d like to join my Life Domination Online Coaching Group, you can learn about it here. It’s only $19.97 per month, and that provides you access to all the videos—as well as the archives of past teaching series—as well as an invitation to the private Facebook group where the videos are shown.

The best part is that you’ll be in that private group along with me and other committed people just like you. I can’t begin to tell you how encouraging it is. You’ll receive the daily support you’re looking for to help you create your best life.

My mission is to help equip people to maximize their resources for a purpose greater than themselves. That's what my own mentors and teachers have done for me, and I'm paying it forward. Life can be merciless, and the world can be a messed up place, so what's needed is a stronger people that can both endure and overcome in life. My motto is, "In whatever you do, don't suck! Metal up!"
