The Happiness Status of Entrepreneurs

Are entrepreneurs as happy as they say they are? And if you have the choice to be an entrepreneur, is this because it gives you so much satisfaction, or is just hard work and not making that much money. And to which level can you influence your happiness level?

  • ARE ENTREPRENEURS HAPPY
    One is happy if you have this feeling of satisfaction in your life which lasts for longer periods of time and on a frequent basis.

74% claims to be happy, and 26% average or less. We can draw the conclusion that entrepreneurs are happy.

Did you know that happiness is influenced by three factors:
1. the power of being happy which is already in your DNA = 65%
2. the circumstances or context  = 10 % influence
3. what you can do / change yourself = 25% influence

In other words, for a limited part, you can do something about it yourself. So blaming the context or circumstances, is not really helpful.

  • DOES YOUR HAPPINESS STATUS INFLUENCE YOUR WORK PERFORMANCE

91% thinks your happiness status is influencing your work performance.

If one is so conscious about the impact of happiness, why is this topic not more on top of mind? Is this a nice to know, or is action really taken to improve this?

  • DO HAVE OTHERS THE IMPRESSION YOU ARE HAPPY

Maybe you feel happy, but does your attitude sent out your happiness to other people you meet? Perhaps you know how to act or how to hide it, if you’re happy or not? Nevertheless 19 % doesn’t mind what others think if they notice your happiness level or not.

If you are happy you will perform better. More specifically, the quality of your communications is most influenced by bodylanguage and not only by the words you speak. So please be aware of your happiness status and what it can imply.
