The Pursuit of Happiness! I know you are familiar with this. But, are you really happy with your life? You are doing what you always wanted to do? You love the morning and sleep like a baby at night? If you answered yes to all of the above questions, stop right here. You don’t need to read this further. If you answered no to any one of the questions above, please read this. This might help to improve and staying happy in life.
A reasonable life can be achieved by anyone, an Ok life, an Ok job, and Ok relationships, anyone can have these. If you want a great life then you must commit to leading a great life.
You must commit to doing things that the majority do not do. Always remember, winners don’t do different things, they just do things differently. Stop being a person in the crowd, stand out of the crowd. Start thinking in a different way,
Here are the 7 keys to living an abundant, successful and happy life:
#1 You will be gone
First thing you should never forget is one day you will be gone. Maybe in 20 years, 20 weeks, 20 days or even today. You don’t know, I don’t know, even nobody knows.
Instead of living in this fear you should embrace this. Life is short and unpredictable and you should live life to its fullest. Leave the past and Live in Today. Plan for your future but never miss the opportunity of living in today. Be with your friends, your family. Love them, talk to them, spend time with them.
What if they couldn’t speak to you tomorrow? What if you were gone tomorrow? What would be you remembered for? What would they speak about you? What you could do to leave a positive memory in the lives of people you met?
It is about being polite and light-hearted. The fact is, in the end, none of these matters. The only thing the ever matters is how you made others feel and how you felt in your own heart?
You must know that nothing goes with you, its the spirit that lives on. Things die with your physical body. Keeping in mind that we are going to die one day keeps us focussed on what really important and real in life.
#2 “I M POSSIBLE”
There is nothing you cannot be, do or have. If there is one person on this planet who has done this before or even not done, my friend, you can do this. Yes, remember, you have the ability to do the impossible. Even impossible says ‘I M POSSIBLE’.
It does not mean it will be easy, but it does mean IT IS POSSIBLE. And you can work towards it, you can set a goal, make plans to achieve it. Research what needs to be done to live your dream, to live an abundant life.
Many will see this as impossible, but as said earlier, impossible is broken down as I am possible. Breaking impossible includes making plans and being willing to work for those plans.
#3 Does this make me happy?
Nothing is worth it if it doesn’t make you happy. If it doesn’t make you happy or doesn’t make you better, don’t spare time for it. What I mean to say here it is if you are doing something and it doesn’t make you happy now or you are doing something and the outcome will not make you happy then my friend it’s time to leave it and focus on something that makes you happy.
It is just like that something you want to get is going to require a real fight to win a great prize. You will have to suffer and sacrifice for almost anything worthwhile in life. But whatever you do in your life, ask yourself this question. Does this make me happy?
If the answer is no, is this sacrifice that you are making lead to more happiness in the long term? If not, then you should let it go.
#4 Be Yourself
Everyone in this world is unique. You have you your own talent. Learn from the mistakes of your own and others. There are so many people in this world who are living a life that they never wanted to just because they listened to someone else and didn’t give a try.
The only way to be successful in life is to be you. Believe in yourself, BE YOURSELF. Do not compare yourself with others. You are the only competitor. You must become better today than yesterday.
#5 Happiness Within
All you need is already within you. A person may have every materialistic thing in this world but he might be empty inside. Things never make you happy. Other people will never make you happy. Real happiness is never found outside of us. Happiness is not dependent on wealth or the number of people you are surrounded by. It is found within, happiness is a state of mind.
#6 Leave Negative People Behind
Positive energy will always motivate you to move forward in life. If you are surrounded by positive people, you will always get motivated. Negative people will pull you backward. Let them live their own life, you leave them behind and live your own. You are the only one responsible for what you are and what you will become in your life. Those who fits with you and align with you will see the sparkle and shine with you, stay with them.
#7 Focus in Finding Positivity
The world is full of positivity and negativity. If you focus on finding negativity, grieves, and sadness. You will find plenty of it. Same is true for the flip side. Focus on finding good things, positivity and you will get plenty of it too. Whatever meaning you give your life, becomes your life.
There is no such thing called reality. Reality is what you make. Make an intention to find only good in your life. Be grateful to what you have, look for the good in others. Always look at challenges as opportunities. This will show your true character.
Leave who you were. Love who you are and look forward to who you will become.
