A great way to be happy is to learn how to solve problems so you don’t have to avoid or endure them. When you learn the skills necessary to fix a difficult situation or challenge, you’re able to deal with any type of person or event that comes your way. Most people deal with problems in a haphazard way based on what they saw in their families rather than taking the time to learn how to actually solve them. A much more effective approach is to study how to solve problems and keep practicing until you’re good at it.
You’re much more likely to get stuck in life if you’re not open to new things. When you keep your mind open and consider new thoughts and actions you increase the amount of tools available to you to deal with any challenge. Being happy is about realizing that there are all kinds of amazing opportunities available to you when you’re willing to learn and grow.
Happiness isn’t an abstract, unattainable concept, you can consciously decide to make it part of your life. Being happy is about how you live each day: What you choose to think and how you decide to behave. Happiness is always with you but it’s up to you to decide whether you acknowledge it or not.
