Who is YOU?
(That’s not a grammatical error.)
When asked, “Who is (your name),” what do you say?

Again, who is YOU?
We are incredibly complex beings and we have many different labels.
For example, I can be “man” at the same time as I’m “happy.” I can be a “resident of northern California” while “native of Detroit” and both are equally true. I can be “a person of faith” and I can be “doubtful” in the same place. I can be “overweight” and I can be “proud” together.
Why does this matter?

Of course, you’ll be happier when you succeed at your goal. That is obvious. The sense of accomplishment, success, self-confidence, and happiness are the natural result of achieving a goal.
But when do they start?
For example too often, many people say, “When I lose those 30 pounds, I’ll be really happy.” That makes sense; after all, the sense of accomplishment, success, and achievement (let alone better health and more pride of appearance) will indeed generate a sense of happiness. But, does it happen the day you reach pound number 30? Maybe it’s at 20? How about 15? Dare I say it, is it one pound?
