How to Be Happy

What You Say to Yourself

It’s hard to be happy if you have messages floating around in your head that sabotage your progress. It’s important to identify what those messages are so you can move past them. For example: Something inside you says that you can’t start a business; it’s up to you whether you continue to believe that voice or you replace it with something else.

It takes time an effort to change your inner dialogue but, when you do it, you’ll enjoy moving forward fearlessly.

Being Happy Is a Lifestyle

Being happy isn’t a one-time effort, it takes constant, conscious and deliberate action. Many people are surprised that doing one nice thing and then behaving negatively in the other areas of their lives doesn’t lead to bliss. That’s because happiness depends on a consistent pattern of thinking and behaving positively.

To be truly happy, do things that build you and the people around you up: Live from your heart, behave with kindness, treat people well, take care of yourself, do nice things, learn, love and be authentic. As you continue behaving positively over time you’ll be consistently more happy.

More than One View

People often get stuck in life or limit their ability to be happy because they believe the world is a certain way. Then something changes that doesn’t fit their perspective and they become scared, upset or disoriented. When your view of the world doesn’t help you consistently feel joy or allow you to cope with the challenges that come your way, then it’s a great time to find some new ideas.

Try Not to Force It

Maybe you’ve thought that you have to achieve certain things by a certain time or kept struggling to make something happen that doesn’t really resonate inside you. The key to being happy in life is to find a path that is in harmony with your talents and abilities and that doesn’t resist you every step of the way. Slow down, reflect and keep your eyes open for the path where doors are waiting to open for you because it¬†reflects who you really are.
