Happy people consciously decide to have a positive mentality. They
see opportunities when others see closed doors and flow with the
natural groove of life. Happy people always avoid these 8 beliefs
and habits that limit them from living a full life. Here are 8 beliefs :
In fact, life is not always fair. Instead, seek out things you can do to
make life better. There will always be something you can do to make
life that much fair. The joy you get from improving the quality of your
own life and that of others is worth every effort.
1. Belief that life is fair!!!
Life is about taking risks and learning from the positive and negative
outcomes of risks. Playing it safe can keep you from hurt in the short
term, the cost of complacency is comparably greater in the long run.
Happy people adopt a little more blind faith in life, which boosts their
long term personal development and happiness.
2. Playing it safe keeps you from getting hurt
3. You are in control of everything!!!
Life is full of surprises. You can’t control everything. Being in control of
everything is just an illusion that puts you on edge and drains energy
and happiness out of you. The sooner you realize this truth, the more
prepared you will be to deal with all that life deals you, and the happier
you will become.
4. Belief that the future is bleak!!!
The glass can either be half full or half empty, depending on how you
look at it. People who focus more on the negative see only a bleak
future for themselves and others and are less happy than people who
look on the brighter side of things. Think more positively and see the
good things around you to lead a more balanced, happy life.
5. Others are better off than you!!!
While some people might be stronger, more gifted and more beautiful
than you, they are not necessarily better off than you. If you can figure
out what you really want in life and then go for it, you too can lead a
rewarding and happy life that others envy. Just see through the need
for other people’s approval and you will be fine.
6. People are obligated to love you a specific way!!!
Just be grateful that someone actually loves you and wishes the best
for you, even though you might feel like they are not compassionate
or supportive enough. Stop demanding that people love you how you
think they should and you will truly be a much happier person.
7. Belief that suffering is bad!!!
Suffering stirs change and builds resilience and wisdom. It is almost
always a stepping stone to something better. If you face suffering
with the right mindset and take appropriate steps to address its
cause, you can only get stronger, wiser and happier in life.
8. Others are the reason for your unhappiness
You are responsible for your own happiness. People don’t decide who
you are. You are only whomever you decide you are. Other’s actions or
inaction will only hurt your ego and affect your happiness if you let it.
Happiness is a choice. Choose to be happy from today regardless of
what everybody else says or does!
Thank You Very Much
“I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation
I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our
misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance
but by our disposition.”- Martha Washington
