25 Happiness Principles

  1. 1. Happiness Principles Happiness cannot come from without. It must come from within, Manage it wisely.
  2. 2. 1. “Shit Happens” Principle This principle explains about the shits that come from others such as shit words, shit behaviors, shit situations, etc. Shit can be happened everywhere. The faster you get out others’ shit words, and shit behaviors from your thought, the sooner you are happy.
  3. 3. 2. Happiness Goal Principle : Whenever you do anything, goal must be set up from the first beginning. You must have the happiness goals in your thought every time, and the results that you get must be good and meaningful for you and others. If not, the “shit” can be happened again.
  4. 4. There is a world of difference between searching for happiness and following your joy. Happiness serves as our compass – it helps us find our real self ; which is an inner directed life that is guided and inspired. When we are happy, we feel in sync with our life; we are participating versus waiting for things to get better. Joy is our original energy. Joy does not come and go, our attunement to it does. To tune into Joy, we may ask ourselves: “When am I most happy?” 3. Identity Principle:
  5. 5. Some people chase happiness and some choose it. We decide how good our day will be and we decide if we will be kind, happy, grateful, loving, etc. What are you choosing to do with each day? 4. Daily Choosing Principle:
  6. 6. Happiness is identifying the real you. What do you really, really want? Until you know what you want, you will want more of everything else. Ask yourself: “What do I want to be: What do I want to give?; What do I want to receive?” 5. Abundance Principle:
  7. 7. Don’t be confused with “Shit Happens” principle. Sometimes in order to be happy in the Present Moment, you have to be willing to give up all hope for a better past and forgive. The power of forgiveness sets you free. Forgiveness helps you remember who you are: are you choosing to be happy or to be a victim? Forgiveness is our present. Until we forgive we keep going over our future in the past. Forgiveness attracts abundance and is the key to Happiness Now! 6. “Shift Happens” Principle:
  8. 8. To be happy, you have to make love more important than anything else. When we are exploring happiness, we are really exploring love. 7. Relationship Principle:
  9. 9. Accept what happens to you and what you think and feel, even if it is uncomfortable. When we stop resisting, the discomfort stops also. Ironically, once you stop resisting, you are much more effective in creating any external change you may have a preference for. 8. “Letting Whatever Happens Be Okay” Principle
  10. 10. People with a high threshold for what they can handle coming at them from the world remain happy, peaceful, and centered even when they are around difficult people or in difficult situations. The threshold eventually becomes so high very little can cause a person to be pushed beyond the point where these feelings and behaviors are triggered. 9. Threshold Principle
  11. 11. This reorganization is a natural process, and always results in a new system/map that can handle what the old system/map could not handle. It is helpful in this process to recognize when you are in the initial chaos state, and to remind yourself that this is the prelude to positive change -- if you know how to get out of the way and let it happen. 10. Chaos & Reorganization Principle
  12. 12. This attempt to hold the old map together comes from the mistaken idea that this map is who we are - that "the map is the territory" - rather than a convenient tool used to navigate through life. It is very helpful to learn and recognize your favorite methods of trying to save the old map, which again is based on the mistaken idea that when the old map falls apart, you are falling apart, rather than just discovering a new and better map. 11. The "Map is NOT the Territory" Principle
  13. 13. If someone or something outside of you is the cause of how you feel or behave, you are relatively powerless - a victim. If you, or at least your unconscious processes are at cause, you have power and can do something to change the situation to one that is happier and more peaceful. Things outside of you may be a stimulus for you, but how you respond comes from you, either consciously or unconsciously. 12. Responsibility as Empowerment Principle
  14. 14. To become conscious, it is necessary to identify our favorite ways of going unconscious, be vigilant in noticing them, and be committed to gradually facing ourselves by stepping outside ourselves and watching what we are doing, feeling, etc. When this happens, many non-resourceful feelings, behaviors, and approaches to life fall away and are replaced by healthier approaches that bring happiness and peace to one's life. 13. Conscious Change Principle
  15. 15. To watch yourself have the feeling or behavior, perhaps saying to yourself: "There I am, doing ___" or "There I am feeling ____". The ability to step aside and watch yourself as you feel and act is an acquired skill and takes time and practice to develop, but it will totally change your life. Using Holosync naturally develops your ability to do this. 14. Witnessing Principle
  16. 16. To keep from experiencing the shame or other uncomfortable feelings regarding the "bad" things, we either 1) repress them into our unconscious mind to keep them out of conscious awareness, or 2) project them onto others. In reality, there is nothing about any of us that is innately bad. Any generalization about yourself that is painful to you, however, is probably not true. 15. "Good & Bad" Generalizations Principle
  17. 17. Everything in the universe is neutral. The old saying "Nothing is good or bad but thinking makes it so" is true. Behaving toward others as you would want them to behave toward you is always the best policy. What you put out toward others does come back to you. 16. The Neutral Universe Principle
  18. 18. 17. Preference Principle Have less demands. Instead, have preferences! For things that are beyond your control, tell yourself: “I WOULD PREFER AN “A”, BUT IF “B” HAPPENS, IT’S O.K. TOO!” This is really a game that you play in your head. It is a shift in attitude, and it gives you more peace of mind.
  19. 19. 18. Wear Rose - Colored Glasses Principle Be love, be peace, be forgiveness and compassion and if someone accuses you of seeing the world through rose colored glasses stop for a moment to let them see through your eyes and help them to understand that you are not blinded by false optimism rather that it is because of what you see that your love for yourself and all others drives you to express your love, your joy and by doing so to be an instrument of change.
  20. 20. 19. Laughing Principle When you face with the “shit” situations, it is better to have a big laugh for a while. When you are laughing, your thought will automatically get all shits out.
  21. 21. 20. Ego-Free Principle When you are quarreled with someone, make sure that you don’t use your ego and would like to win the argument. Don’t play the shit game and try to escape from shit situation as soon as possible, and ask for apologize if anything you do is also “shit”. With this principle, your relationship with others is still maintained.
  22. 22. 21. Down To Earth Principle To Express awareness of things as they really are and have a realistic view of the possibilities and a realistic appraisal of our chances. This leads to living our lives simply and happily.
  23. 23. 22. “Still Waters Run Deep” Principle "Still waters run deep" means that you are calm and tranquil on the outside, often have a strong, "deep" personality. To wait for a while before react to everything that is occurred to you. To Think of the choices and select the positive one out of them that can make you and other feel happy.
  24. 24. 23. “Lessons Learnt” Principle The successful persons always have good lessons in their thoughts. When they faced with the difficulties and failures, they will pass all the situations successfully, because they can retrieve out the right lessons in their thoughts to lead their actions at the right time.
  25. 25. 24. Giving Principle “Giving,” is to do something for someone without any expectation or want for anything in return. By helping others you are in fact helping yourself. If you have much, give of your wealth; If you have little, give of your heart. The More You Give, the More You Get. This will bring happiness to your life.
  26. 26. You will never become happy, you will only be happy. NOW IS WHAT COUNTS! We focus on the NOW to end the pursuit of happiness. Robert states “The best predictor of future happiness is happiness NOW!” Are you willing to Live NOW? 25. Now Principle:
  27. 27. I hope these principles will be helpful to you. When you are in distress, check to see if you are violating any of these principles, or if viewing the situation through the filter of these principles creates a shift for you.
  28. 28. “ It’s not what happens to you that determines your happiness. It’s how you think about what happens to you.” Thank You Very Much Sompong Yusoontorn
