If you were asked to name some things that make you happy, I am sure you will be able to come up with some good answers, it is easy to know what can make you happy but position yourself to enjoy the full benefits of living a happy life will take more than just knowing what can make you happy.

Creating an environment that will encourage you to feel happy at all times will not necessarily take a huge effort. We have listed out simple steps that you can adopt to make yourself happy at all times.

 

1) Acknowledge only the good things around you at every moment.

Starting out by being grateful for the little things that other people might not have the luxury of is the first step to being happy. You should be grateful for having a shelter and being able to wake up every morning to have the kind of breakfast you want. Many people out there do not have the luxury to make these choices.

Always look out for the good in every situation, we live in a time when we cannot entirely avoid negativity, it is all over the social media and the news, but you can control what you get exposed to. Never let the negative trends discourage you from trying to be happy at all times.

In the end, it is very simple things we could effortlessly do that determine how happy we become.

 

2) Engage in actions that ensure a long-term benefit.

The problem with always seeking short-term benefits is that in a short while you will need to get something else to make you happy, this is a common experience for people who seek gratification from acquiring minor material things.

One common mistake people make is taking jobs they know they will never be happy doing; this is like consciously signing an agreement to be permanently upset every day. A good way to remain happy is to love what you do for a living, so you should consider making better career choices.
If you are looking for ways to be happy, identify your gifts and find ways to use these gifts to help other people around you.

When you can realize the ways your existence on earth can be used to make other people happy, you will appreciate yourself even more despite all your imperfections.

 

3) Concentrate on only what is important to you.

You’ve been blessed with all you need to live a happy life, look within and find these blessings.
Many people experience frustrations because they have not clearly identified what they want in their lives. If you fall into this category, you are in luck because there are easy steps to overcome this success barrier. The first step is to think carefully about your life and make up your mind on what you want to become. You can proceed by making a list of these things and attempting to draw out a map that will lead you to achieve them.
Remember when you were little and you wanted a particular toy? This was all you thought about all day and night frequently asking your parents when you can get it until they finally bought it for you. This is the measure of dedicated focus you need to apply in achieving your goals. Don’t get distracted by the things you do not have instead, focus on getting the things you can get by following your plan.
I should state here that your plan should be realistic and achievable too, all you should do is believe it can happen and the more confident you get in achieving this goal, the easier it will be for you to make it happen.

 

4) Learn to put yourself first.

Contrary to what you might have previously thought, you will end up feeling worse if you always put the needs of other people before yours.
Sadly, there are a lot of selfish people out there who will use every opportunity to take from you once they find out that you never say no. Think back to the many times you have had to do things for people at your inconvenience. You will realize these people only reach out to you when they need something. This is unfair; you should learn to put yourself first.
Don’t fall victim of wasting your time to suit the needs of other people who don’t really care how you feel, you should learn to say no. This is a common situation almost everyone has had to face, and the truth is you will feel better when you say no, be brief and polite about it, and you will be surprised that the other person will understand because they know what they have asked for is actually unfair to you.

 

Start practicing this today, and you will feel better, don’t ever feel guilty after refusing an unfair request, you have just created more time to focus on achieving your own goals.

 

5) Locate role models who have achieved similar goals and become friends with them.

Knowing what other people have gone through will help you to make better plans.
In life, we practically have no influence over the family we are born into or who we work with at the office. What we can control is how much interaction we have with people who turn out to be malicious and bitter towards others. The best kind of company is people who think like you, they are ambitious and always seek ways to improve themselves and others around them. You will benefit from these people because there will be similarities in your thoughts and beliefs which is lifting up others and helping out ONLY when you can afford it. When you notice people, who behave in ways you admire, learn from them by observing how they handle issues, become friends with them too. It is also important that you should never try to be like other people, what you should focus on is learning from them and applying these skills in your own special and unique way.

Trying to become another version of a person will only be frustrating, so avoid it.

 

6) Learn from your mistakes and unfortunate experiences
I am yet to see a person who can boldly declare they have lived perfect lives with no mistakes, we are human and we all make mistakes. Don’t feel too bad when you are faced with adversity because it cannot be totally avoided as you forge ahead in life, what you should do is face them boldly and learn from the experience. You should also know that every situation becomes exactly the name you give it, only you can tag and experience as unfortunate or bad.
There are many possibilities that those rejections and disappointments can be a blessing in disguise. We have constantly heard of people who were previously turned down after attempts to secure jobs or contracts they thought would be great for them only for them to get even better opportunities that would have been lost if their earlier attempts had been successful.

This means you should never take rejection or adversity personally, instead believe only the best things can happen to you and keep looking ahead for what is better.

 

7) Always strive to give your very best only within your limits

Happy Graduate Laughing iwontloseBelieving in you means forging ahead even when the means to make it has not been clearly defined. You should have faith in your abilities, and when the time comes to prove yourself, the results will be absolutely excellent.
It is difficult to achieve happiness and success when you lay back, waiting for the perfect moment to act. There might never be a perfect moment, or it might come after you have wasted so much valuable time. It is the gradual and uncertain moves made in faith that will get you where you need to be.
The media and many other platforms have made us believe that imperfection should not be embraced, the level of perfection that is painted through these mediums can be a source of depression for people whose self-esteem get challenged by the perfect looking models seen on TV or the stories of people who became wealthy many years ago. You are distinctively who you are- unique and special people because of those imperfections that make you stand out. Doing something in a different way creates an opportunity for you to define your unique style. There are countless stories of how imperfections have been turned to assets, means through which the lives of the people changed. Dare to explore your uniqueness, never feel less confident because you don’t measure up to the seemingly perfect picture painted out there.

Always remember that being happy is ultimately dependent on your decisions. You have the power to live happily, exercise control over the situations and people you interact with by getting closer to the positive influences and avoiding all forms of negativity.

7 TIPS TO WELCOMING HAPPINESS TO YOUR LIFE

TRY THESE 7 TIPS TO RECLAIMING YOUR HAPPINESS

LIVE NOW! Self-betterment is not the path that should be taken in finding out our authenticity, but a dive into the heart of now. It happens to be that new choices can only be made in the present moment. All we need is the moment, for it is only in the present moment that we can acquire responsibilities for our emotional history and experience of life. Taking emotional responsibilities can be done by being present in the moment and help in dodging the dangers of blame and denial.

<a href=

ELIMINATE FALSE BELIEFS! False beliefs keep us stuck in life-constricting situations and prevent us from playing that great role in a production of our own. To get free from such subtle beliefs, we need to locate them and realize that, they are mere lies, although they have controlled our reactions for a long while. Reality and truth cannot be withstood by beliefs born of fear.

 

HEART x SOUL! The direct bridge to the Divine is our soul, and it is expressed in the heart. The abiding way to the heart of a genuine mystery is our soul. It is through the heart our soul communicates with all of the creation, and this expression is seen as love. The love in our soul that flows directly from the heart—not romantic love—is what allows us to gain the greatest form of human possibility by authentical living.

 

PATIENCE! A flash of illumination isn’t how self-awareness generally comes; instead, patience is required, for it does not speed that matters but the assimilation of wisdom. The road to self-awareness is not smooth and straight forward; it is a fluid progression of levels that carries an individual forward at a pace that is most exciting to them. What we must do is to individually experience the lessons for progress to take place, instead of understanding each stage individually.

 

TALK TRUTH!! The heart is the origin of honest communication, where the tree of infinite wisdom grows. Learning to openly show who we are and how we feel, regardless of the audience, in particular, is key. If we vibrantly express ourselves, the value of our own authenticity will be discovered. Entailed with the fearless articulation of the spirit is this authentic self-expression of the divine at our core.

STOP FIXING WHAT IS NOT BROKEN! Accepting ourselves, along with everything and everyone in the Magical Theatre, is the key to unlocking awareness. Unlike passive resignation, acceptance is an act that gives us the ability to easily and with love, set ourselves free from attachment to event situations or outcomes. The ongoing approval means getting rid of the armor of defiance and believing in the intelligence of the Divine Mystery.

 

TAP INTO YOUR IMAGINATION! What is real? People in magical theaters tend to be more focused in setting emotional and physical standards that don’t work for everyone. The reality is everyone lives life and operates in a unique and somewhat indecipherable way. Knowing that what goes on in our minds and the emotions we feel sets the foundation of a static reality that can be of help for a lifetime is important.

Top 5 Things To Quit ASAP!

Let’s QUIT some of these things ASAP!!

In life, we are always being told what we should improve, and we like to give you all tips on what to include in your life when it comes to your mindset; however, what about things we need to quit? As well as bringing the positives, you also need to remove the negatives so here are our top five!

The Fear of Change – We like to be comfortable in life, and sometimes, that means sticking to the status quo. Although we tell ourselves ‘I can change anytime I want to,’ we don’t actually do it unless necessary. However, change can be a good thing, and it is something we should all embrace a bit more. If you are constantly doing the same things, how will you ever discover your hidden talents and potential?

Keeping Everyone Happy – Whether at work or in your personal life, it is impossible to keep everyone happy so stop trying. Often, we agree to plans knowing that they will be disrupting our own plans, we give in to make people happy, we agree to things we really don’t want to do, and more. Sometimes, you just have to say ‘no’ and put yourself first for once. You will not be able to live life keeping everyone happy because while you spin all those plates, guess who won’t be happy…you!

Thinking Too Much – One of the biggest factors that hold us all back are worries, and you need to learn to stop overthinking and instead, start taking action. For example, what is the point of being worried about failure? All that will do is guarantee that you won’t succeed because you won’t even try. If you try, at least you are giving it your best shot. We spend half our life worrying about what people might think, about failure, about our previous mistakes, but you need to overcome this to move forward.

Looking In The Rear-View Mirror – You would never drive a car looking in the rear-view mirror so why do we live our lives constantly looking backward? If you keep looking back at all the failures you have made, you will never have the opportunity to put it right and progress right now. What happened in the past has gone, there is no way you can change it so start looking at the now and the future instead.

Although we mainly choose to look back at failures, looking back at ‘what used to be’ can be equally damaging. Again, maybe you have had some good times but you need to focus on the now otherwise your future will suffer.

Not Taking Credit – From a very early age, we are taught to be humble, and this is a great asset to have. However, when you have done something well, and you are receiving praise, enjoy the moment and take credit for your success. Of course, you need to remain humble to a point, but you still need to accept praise and be proud!

 clock bad habits

Time-Wasting – You go home after a long day’s work, eat dinner, and then crash in front of the TV until it is time to go to bed; just think about all the things you could be doing in this time. You could be studying towards a new career, exercising to stay fit, learning a new skill, or absolutely anything. A good way to see where you are losing time is to keep a diary and then review it at the end of each week; you will be surprised at how much time you waste.

Negative Thinking – One day, write down all the negative thoughts you receive; you will be shocked at the result because you have probably just got used to it. When you realize just how negatively you have been thinking, you can do something about it to become more positive.

It becomes so easy to waste time when you don’t have a plan because you don’t know if it is progressing you or not. If you work out a plan to achieve your goals, decisions will be made for you and you will know the next steps to take to progress.

Too Much Phone Time – Technology has advanced dramatically in recent years, but you still need to look up now and then; sometimes we spend all day at work and then all night looking at our phones. Why not turn your phone off now and then to spend quality time with those around you?


Lack of Sleep – Sleep is vital because it refreshes both your body and your mind allowing you to concentrate the next day. If you aren’t getting enough sleep, you are giving yourself no chance to do anything worthwhile the next day; the more you do it, the more it becomes a habit and the longer you will struggle.
