FFA Vs JPF
In the book “The Everyday Hero Manifesto” author Robin Sharma makes a really important distinction between what we think we want and what we actually want. Having coached some of the most elite, highest performing individuals in history, he intricately knows what success is and what it’s not.
He says most people think success is FFA - Fame, fortune, and applause. We admire people who on the outside look like they have it all because they have the influence, wealth, and presence to justify it. But that is all externally facing and it entirely neglects their internal experience, which is far more important.
Sharma says the actual pursuit of success is JPF - Joy, peace, and freedom. Yes, this is a privilege that is earned through hard work, but the outcome of it relates to a better perceived life. You experience more positive emotions more often, you live with minimal conflict and anxiety, and you have the ability to do what you choose to when you want to.
Reading between the lines, what’s really important to note is that your joy, peace, and freedom by no means requires that you have fame, fortune and applause. What happens is we mistakenly translate that having FFA means you have JPF, and that is absolutely incorrect.
This should empower you to know that we’re all after the same thing and we can go about attaining it in different ways. You don’t need to speak on stages, be a celebrity, or have a million dollars to achieve life success. You’re already getting tastes of it today with your life exactly how it is, and if you want to improve the quality of your life your task becomes doing more of what brings you joy, feeling more at peace with the decisions you make, and choosing to do what you want without restriction or guilt.
So let’s start making that happen right now - What small things can you do today to bring more joy, peace, and freedom into your life today?
