International Day of Happiness

March 20th is the International Day of Happiness. With our world facing unprecedented challenges, wellbeing matters now more than ever.

Happiness is the opposite of stress, so to aim at happiness is to eliminate stress. Happiness is not achieved just with yet more income but instead by doing well. Beyond having a roof over your head and having enough money to live the life you want, there remain three basic psychological principles (determinants) which must be satisfied for people to be happy. Happiness is about what you do, why you do it, and how you relate to other people in what you do.

By creating a business model around three core values of happiness, we have been able to focus on determinant’s which will lead to happier financial advisers in the first instance and therefore happier clients too. The three are:

  1. Connect with more people – Effective marketing for new clients = more money
  2. Make a difference – Efficient business processing using advanced technology = more time
  3. Enjoy more freedom – Provide quality support that being independent needs = less stress

Put simply, if you can connect with more people, make a positive difference in the lives of others and have the freedom to be yourself, then you are first determining happiness and thereby being active in all three determinant areas. You are implementing happiness.

Here at Truly Independent we recognise that when our advisers are happy in their work, they are more productive and their clients are happier too. The end result of this company ethos is a happier and more successful financial adviser. We actively promote happiness as the foundation of an efficient and effective organisation.

If you’re an experienced financial adviser looking for a new approach to supporting your clients, loving your work and building your own long-term financial security, then perhaps it is time for you to make a positive change and join us at Truly Independent.
