How To Find Happiness?

  1. 1. How Do I Find Happiness? I've been asked this question: How do I find happiness? I've thought long and hard about this question especially in relation to the younger generation. Why the younger generation? They seem to think happiness has to be some kind of external pleasure. Hence, we have gadgets, entertainment, and what have you to fill the void within us with the hope that we will be happy. Sad but true. Many who seek happiness are still eagerly waiting for their situation to change before allowing themselves to be truly happy? Most of us have preconceived ideas of what would make us happy, and we refuse to be satisfied until those things happen! Heard About The Lasting Happiness & Success Formula? Guess what? When those specific things do happen in our lives, we’re rarely satisfied with them! So we then shift our focus to something even bigger and better, with the belief that “this” will definitely make us happy. Can you see the pattern here? The truth is, we never really allow ourselves to reach a point of contentment. That's the key: Contentment. The happiest people in the world are content with what they have. They appreciate every single little thing to the extent that they are completely and utterly happy. Easier said than done, you might say. Well, that's okay. Don't fret! The good news is that you can decide to be happy NOW – even if not everything in your life is perfect.
  2. 2. Let me share with you just 3 easy ways to achieve contentment and find happiness: #1 Being Grateful Gratitude is one of the most powerful states of mind that you can adopt. Not only does it make you feel good, it shifts your focus from what you don’t have to what you DO have. The best part is that it keeps it there! When you focus on even the smallest blessings, and you're grateful for them, you will stop worry about anything that may be lacking. The result? A wonderful sense of blissful happiness! #2 Stopping to smell the roses. If you're always rushing and feel you're being pushed for time, then it's going to be really difficult to feel content and happy. In order to feel truly happy, it is imperative that you make time for yourself. You need to make time to bask in relaxing moments. You need to dream and soak in all the pleasures of the simple things in life. You need to enjoy quiet moments. Make a commitment to spend time doing what you love. I for one, love to read and so my happy moments are spent reading books that stimulate my imagination while listening to music that I love. I practice yoga daily, take long strolls while basking in the beauty of nature. Why wait for the right time? It may never come. Enjoy what you love doing now. Experience every moment in the moment. That moments may pass you by and be lost forever. Life if short. Live in the moment. #3 Life is a journey. Embrace it. Most of us seem to believe that once we "get there" all will be well and we will be happy. So we choose to postpone everything, and place all our expectations on some long-term goal. Promising ourselves that once those goals are completed, we will have the time to be happy. My dad was one such person. He postponed travelling (even though he worked for an airline and was able to travel at discounted prices). He always said that he will travel once he retired. As a retiree he could still travel at a discount. Guess what? His health took a turn for the worse and he became blind because of diabetes. That day never came! His mistake was not realizing that life is a journey. There is much to be gained from enjoying the journey.
  3. 3. Make it your mission to revel in every moment in your journey in life. Go ahead and accomplish your goals. Keep your commitments. But love the journey and make it a worthwhile journey. When you do so, the you will have no regrets and you will be happy. Find Out About The Lasting Happiness & Success Formula If there is one important thing I have to say about finding happiness, it is this: Understand that happiness is largely a choice you make from moment to moment. Although there may be situations when it can be difficult to feel happy, we should strive not to allow those little situations to bother us and block our happiness. Happiness can be found in any situation if you learn to be grateful. Embrace life and you will find happiness.
