How to Be Happy

Finding Happiness

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.

The Dead-End Street

You’ll likely find that part of being happy is getting to a dead-end street and knowing what to do. The key is to not keep going down it. Many people get stuck doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results when they could be focusing their energy on making small changes and finding new opportunities. There are plenty of roads out there waiting for you to travel them but you can’t find them unless you come out of the dead ends.

Let Go of Excuses

Each time you make an excuse, you deny yourself the ability to take responsibility for your actions in life and become a more effective person. Even if you make a big mistake, it’s far more desirable to admit that you did it and try hard not to repeat it than pretend that it didn’t happen. When you try to cover up after doing something incorrectly you miss a great opportunity to learn something new and become a stronger, wiser person. Making mistakes is a natural part of life and you get to choose whether you learn from them or not.

Trying to Impress Others

If you spend your life trying to impress others you might find yourself overlooking your own feedback and perspective. When you look for approval from outside people it’s not the same as loving yourself and becoming secure with the person you are deep inside. The only way to be truly happy inside is to impress yourself by thinking and behaving positively and living your dreams.

A Clear Conscience

When you think and behave in uplifting, kind, positive ways you can enjoy having a clear conscience. A big part of being happy is living in a way that creates good vibes in the universe. You have the ability to consciously choose how you live. You decide how you view the world and what you think and do in it. When you behave in a compassionate, giving, loving way you’ll sleep better at night and you’ll continue to grow as a person.
