How to Be Happy

What’s Your Purpose in Life?

People who have a purpose in life tend to be more happy than those who walk around aimlessly hoping something will happen. Ask yourself what you love doing and what brings you joy and then pursue it. When you listen to your inner self and work toward becoming the person you want to be, you’ll feel more fulfilled and you’ll be living on purpose.

How to Be Happy: Ambiguity

A lot of people make themselves miserable because they think there is only one way of doing things or one way to look at the world. They refuse to deviate from a certain thought or behavior and then wonder why they’re stuck or have limited options.

The key to being happy in life is to embrace ambiguity because not everything is black or white; right or wrong; good or bad. There are a lot of shades of grey and nuanced ways of looking at the world. Be open to all the opportunities available to you and all the wonderful thoughts and ideas that can help you be the best you possible.

Seeking Attention

We all want attention, even when it’s for something negative. Humans are social beings who like to be noticed and feel like they matter. Happy people seek attention in positive ways such as through their own accomplishments or by sharing their gifts and talents with the world. Difficulties arise when you seek attention through someone else or based on something that isn’t positive. The only attention that will make you truly happy is attention based on a healthy, fulfilled you.
