Happiness is a state of mind. If you want to be happy, you can. If you want to be unhappy, you can. It is a state of mind. You can make yourself happy by doing happy things, thinking happy thoughts, and spending time with happy people. You can also make yourself unhappy by doing the opposite.
Happiness is within you. You will find it if you change your thought. You can be if you make others happy.
If you want happiness, make people happy. Don’t search for happiness, because you will never find it. If you want it, give it to others.
Albert Einstein said, “If you want to live a happy live, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.” If you tie your happiness to people, you will be disappointed. People are not perfect. They cannot meet all your needs and wants. Only your goals can make you happy.
In the words of James Altucher, “The key to happiness is to reduce expectation.” If you want to be happy, set goals that you can achieve for yourself.
If you want to live a happier life, know these eight things:
Happiness is a choice. If you want to be happy, it is possible. Only you can make yourself happy, not me, not your teacher, not your spouse, not your parent, but you. Happiness is in your mind. If you want a happier life, change your thinking. Change what you think about.
Happiness is in the art of serving others. If you want happiness, make other people happy. Make them smile. Bring out the best in them. Help them find their purposes in life. When you help others, you are helping yourself.
Happiness is not from material success. Happiness is the way to success. Success is not the way to happiness. Success is not the way to a happier life. Happiness is the way to a happier life.
Be authentic. If you want to live a happier life, you must be authentic. You must be true to yourself. Aristotle said, “To thyself be true.” Be real to yourself. Don’t deceive yourself. Don’t deceive others. Being an authentic person is the best way to really understand who you are. If you are not authentic, you will never know who you are.
Surround yourself with happy people. When you stay with positive and happy people, you will be happy. They will lift you up. They will encourage you to be better, to do great work, and to be yourself. They will accept you for who you are, not what you can do.
Do what you love. Steve Jobs said, “The only way to be successful is to do what you love.” Do things that will help you grow in life. Things that will take you to the next level in your life.
Don’t search for happiness. Albert Camus Said, “You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.”
Happiness comes from self-awareness. If you know yourself, if you know who you are, it will help you in dealing with other people. If you don’t know who you are, you cannot know other people. Self-awareness is the way to a successful life.
To find happiness, give it to others.
