Happiness is something we all strive for in life. For some of us happiness comes naturally but for others it must be learned. The good news for those of us, who need a little help being happy, is that there are steps we can take to help us make the transformation.
Accept what we have and strive for what we realistically can achieve.
Enjoy what you spend your time doing. Money and prestige are not substitutes for enjoyment.
Live in the moment. Don’t dwell on the past or dream of a perfect future.
Make evaluations of your life goals and adjust them as necessary so that you find success rather than wallow in failure.
Happiness comes from others. Seek out relationships with those around you who will support your goals and accept your positive input in their lives.
Get involved. Interact frequently with others and develop a rich social network of friends and acquaintances.
Stop trying to conform to the expectations of others, be you with spontaneity and honesty.
Don’t dwell on doubt and stop worrying about things that are only “possibilities”.
Focus on your goals and aspirations without worrying about comparisons with others.
Establish purpose. Set goals and establish small, measurable steps to achieving them.
Look for positives in everything do and deal with and dismiss any nagging negative feelings.
Follow these steps and you’ll find more enjoyment and happiness in everything you do!
