Our mood is in our hands, so we can
choose to react to any situation
however we want—either allow yourself
to be sucked into a negative state of
mind, or rise above that and be happy
despite the traffic!
Let go of your complaining.
Instead of endlessly
something bad happened
and letting your problems
cause you unhappiness,
step up and spend time
looking for solutions. You don’t just get the
problems solved, you become happier with
finding challenges, new things to do, and
seeing hope at the end of the process.
Step up from the problems
Most of the hurdles we face in life are
actually ones that we have concocted
up in our minds, they are imaginary,
unreal and they are what prevent us
from moving forward, not our actual
circumstances. Free yourself of these.
Let go of any self-defeating ideas,
your fears, attachments, and excuses.
Happy people are those
who love themselves.
Happier ones know how
to get a daily treat, mostly
a few minutes of doing
things they love most on
their own. Meaningful alone time is a powerful
need and a necessary tonic in today's rapid-
fire world and helps bring us joy in
relationships, our creativity, and our peace of
Always have a “me” moment
infectious, and it’s
always fun to be
around friends who make you smile.
Be around happy people.
Make your work meaningful, fun, and always
interesting. Avoid routines that often lead to de-
motivation and dissatisfaction. Re-write boring
correspondences, rearrange your work area
and put positive pictures and objects around
Make your career a source of joy.
Some people tend to
aim too high and realise
their goals are beyond
their reach, and this
leads to plenty of
dreams are easier to
achieve so make sure
your goals are
well-designed. The road
towards it will see you
in a happier pursuit.
Be realistic with goals.
A man without direction
wouldn’t know what
makes him happy, so it’s
understandable that a life without purpose is a
sad one. Knowing your reasons for being in the
world makes you love being alive and become
happier in the pursuits you take.
Have a purpose and know it, too.
There are so many more
important things in life than
worrying what someone thinks of
your shoes, what you do for a
living, or the car you drive. In the
same light, criticising anything
and everything that
you don’t understand
will get you nowhere.
We are all different
and that’s what
makes life beautiful.
Let go of
and the need
It’s important for every person not just to be
honest at all times, but to live according to how
they truly want themselves to be.
10Be yourself and live
in all honesty.
Studies show that the notion of
anger catharsis is foolish.
Expressing anger related to minor,
fleeting annoyances just amplifies
bad feelings, while not expressing
anger and “sleeping on it” often
allows it to dissipate.
11Do let the sun
go down on anger.
Feelings follow actions. If you’re
feeling low, deliberately act cheerful
and you’ll find yourself actually
feeling happier. If you’re feeling
angry at someone, do something
thoughtful for that person and your
feelings towards them would soften.
This strategy is uncannily effective.
12Fake it till you feel it.
Savour what’s going on around you right now, instead of looking a
few hours or days ahead or looking back at things that cannot be
returned. If you enjoy what you’re doing, just enjoy it fully while
you can. Leave the past behind and let later take what’s in it.
Live the moment,
not the past, and
not the later.
Our every action must be done
because it’s good and because it is
hoped to give good results. Never
do something just to disprove
others or because you’re angry,
envious or want to beat others on a
14Put a positive premise
to every act.
Prayer and meditation allow you to
look deeper into your soul and
your life. That means finding many
good things about yourself,
erasing ill feelings, discovering
areas in your life you need to
become better, and being happier
about who you are.
