Finding happiness requires identifying areas in your life that you want to improve and taking action to address those issues. This process is most effective when the person is experiencing discomfort of some kind that motivates him (or her) to consider changing his thoughts or behaviors. The person has to be ready to address the challenge and willing to work on it until positive results are achieved.
It is recommended that people approach finding happiness as an ongoing process rather than a quick fix. Meaningful change requires long-term commitment and effort.
