Professor Martin Seligman, University of Pennsylvania - taken from Pursuit of Happiness
This is Martin Seligman. Previously Chair of the American Psychological Association AKA top job in Psychology, Martin is popularly regarded the founder of Positive Psychology.
In an early TED talk that stuck with me since watching it many years ago he explained the key core conditions of happiness. He explained that happiness can be found in having and doing nice things (The Pleasurable Life), feeling engaged and connected with others or in what we do (The Good Life) and having a sense of purpose (The Meaningful Life).
Specifically, he presented data that the Pleasurable Life, that is having and doing nice things, wasn't anywhere near as important as leading a Meaningful Life (living with purpose) and the Good Life (feeling connected) when it comes to being happy!
I will relate to this concept of happiness during this audit as I believe the reason we are fitness professionals and decided to be self-employed and own our own businesses, is to be happy - to live with purpose, to connect with what we do and with others and enjoy doing and having nice things.
To what extent does your current PT practice or business make you feel you are living life with a strong sense of purpose and meaning?
THIS IS ABOUT YOUR WHY. SOMETIMES WE DRIFT AND CAN LIVE FROM WEEK TO WEEK WITHOUT ANY KIND OF CLEAR VISION FOR OURSELVES OR OUR BUSINESS. BUT HAPPINESS SOMEWHAT DEPENDS ON HAVING SUCH CLEAR PURPOSE.
To what extent does your current PT practice or business engage you and enable you to enjoy quality time with others who mean the most to you?
SOMETIMES OUR WORK CAN DRAIN US AND PREVENT US ACHIEVING THIS GOAL WHEN, IN FACT, IT CAN AND SHOULD ENRICH OUR LIVES BY PROVIDING SUCH CONNECTION AND OPPORTUNITY TO SPEND QUALITY TIME WITH THOSE WHO MATTER MOST.
To what extent does your current PT practice or business enable you to enjoy doing or having nice things?
SOMETIMES WE WORK HARD AND STILL DON'T ACCOMPLISH THE FINANCIAL GAINS WE HOPE FOR AND SOMETIMES WE LEARN TO LIVE WITH THIS. BUT WE DON'T HAVE TO.

What INCOME do you need to live this life?
Write down your IDEAL income and make friends with it!
Seriously, get clear on what your ideal is - it is important!
Do you have the right business model and associated strategies to create the life and income you want?
I AM TALKING A FORMAL SALES FUNNEL, CLEAR MARKETING MESSAGE, STAND-OUT SET OF PRODUCTS AND SERVICES AND SYSTEMISED APPROACH TO GETTING NEW CLIENTS?
