One of the easiest ways to be less happy is to be in relationships with people who are pulling you off your path. Think in terms of what kind of people you need around you to help you move forward. Ideally, these are individuals and groups that treat you well, believe in you and support you unconditionally.
You can be happy by being proactive. When you’re trying to achieve a goal it’s important to think before you act. Do some planning beforehand. Weigh the pros and cons and move forward in an informed way. This doesn’t mean that you think yourself into a corner and don’t do anything, just make sure you think carefully about the steps you take. Here are a few tips on how to be more proactive:
- Think of what really makes you happy.
- Decide on one thing you will do today to make your happiness come true.
- Take action.
- Praise yourself for what you do.
- Repeat the process.
When you decide to actually take action instead of waiting for things to happen to you, you’ll get closer to being happy. What do you do to be more proactive?
