Did you know that entrepreneurs are generally happier than the average person?
People who feel as though they have chosen their own paths tend to be more content with their lives. Makes total sense, right?
And it isn’t just about the destination at the end of that path — it’s about the journey itself, my friend!
A lot of people approach their business (and their life in general) with the idea that true happiness lies just beyond the goalposts. But positive psychology shows that the happiest people are those currently working towards a goal.
All the more reason to focus on making your journey as amazing as possible!
