If you want to be as happy as possible in life it’s important to always move toward the light, which means that you think and behave in positive ways that don’t hurt you or others. A lot of people learn the hard way that they can’t behave negatively and feel great at the same time. For example: If you do things that hurt others, even if you become rich and influential, you will never be truly happy because you’re creating negative energy. To live a deeply fulfilling and meaningful life, it’s important to constantly and consistently do things that make the world a better place for you and as many other people as possible. What will you do to move toward the light?

Make your life easier by enjoying your journey instead of worrying about impressing others or appearing invincible. Have fun and be happy rather than obsessing on doing things that set you up for failure.

- What small action can I take today to be happier?

You’ll be much happier in life if you’re OK with uncertainty. Many of the biggest questions in life have no clear answers:
- Why am I here?
- Why will I die?
- What’s my purpose?
- What is the meaning of life?
It’s fine not to know the answers to these questions because what really matters is how you decide to live your life. Get to know yourself well, live according to your own inner compass, follow your dreams, treat yourself and others well, keep learning and growing and you’ll be a happy person whether you have all the answers or not. What will you do to be OK with uncertainty?
Many people live their lives as if they’re in a bubble and no one else (or only a selected few) matters. The difficulty with this approach is that, unless you live in the middle of nowhere with no one around you, you can’t ignore the fact that other people exist. You get to choose how you treat others and how you interact with them: You can be pleasant and compassionate or you can create strife and conflict. It’s up to you how you relate to others and whether you work hard toward understanding or dismissing them. You’ll be much more happy if you step outside your comfort zone and get to know a wide range of people rather than excluding them for whatever reason. What will you do to avoid living in a bubble?
