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.

We all want to be happy, but happiness is not what you search for, it is what you give to other people. It is how you make people feel about themselves. It is how you treat the little guys. If you want to be happy, make people happy.

Here are some quotes that will help you find and embrace happiness:

Aristotle said, “Happiness depends upon ourselves.”

“Happiness is not a matter of intensity, but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.”- Thomas Merton

“The two enemies of human happiness are pain and boredom.”- Arthur Schopenhauer

“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.”- Albert Einstein

How To Feed Your Mind With Positive Things

Your mind needs food. It needs positive food. The best way to keep a healthy mind is to feed it with positive things. If you feed your mind with positive thoughts, with positive events, instead of negative events, you will get a happy mind.

A happy person is someone with a happy mind. You cannot be happy inside and be unhappy outside. Your outside life is a reflection of what you are feeling inside. You can make your mind happy. You can make your mind sad. It is your choice.

You can make your mind happy by focusing on positive things, by focusing on the good things in any situation, by doing the right things, by helping those in need, by putting other people first, by loving people unconditionally, by being grateful, and by forgiving the people who have wronged you. When you feed your mind with these things, your mind will never know sickness. You will have a healthy mind. You will have a sound mind. You will have a productive mind.

Make sure you are always working to protect your mind from bad people, people who will never find anything good to tell you. Stay away from those people.

Feeding your mind with positive thoughts does not mean that you are going to be happy all the time. That is not the case. It means even when you are not happy, you still find a way to make the situation a positive one. That is, you never allow the negativity around to decide how you run your life.

Always focus on the positive things in your life. Always appreciate what you have, and where you are in life. Feed your mind with positive thoughts. Try to develop the habit of thinking in positive ways. When you see a negative thing or it happens to you, try to picture it in a positive way. In doing so, you have created a positive picture of that event in your mind.

You are created to be a positive person, not a negative person. Stay positive!

Happiness is a choice. Make the choice to be happy. You can do it if you want to.

Don’t search for happiness. If you search for it, you will never find it. If you really want to be happy, do these seven things:

  1. Have a sense of humor. Don’t take yourself too seriously. Be happy. Make people laugh.
  2. Smile. When you leave your home in the morning, find ways to connect with people. Find a way to laugh. Don’t laugh at people. Laugh with people.
  3. Put smile on people’s face. People want to be happy. They want to smile. When they smile, please don’t frown your face. Smile back. They need your smile. I need your smile. The world need your smile. If we can just smile together, the world will be a better place for us all to enjoy!
  4. Be a light. Where there is light, there is no darkness. Be a blessing to people. When you bless people, you are blessing yourself, too. Help people succeed. Help your boss succeed. You will succeed.
  5. Give something special to people. Bless people with your love. Love people unconditionally. Give people praise. When you praise people, it means you love them, you respect them, you care about them. Please do it for yourself, for the world, and for me. Thank you.
  6. Forget yourself. I don’t know what you do. But whatever it is, have fun. Forget yourself in what you do. Don’t think too much about it. Don’t worry about mistakes. Don’t worry about perfection, because it does not exist. Forget yourself in what you do, and you will enjoy it. I know psychologists call it “Flow” I call it “Forget yourself in it”
  7. Don’t complain. I know it is hard to do sometimes. But if you can stay away from complaining, people will love you to death. People want to be around happy people, not complainers. If you complain, you are wasting your energy. No matter what, remain strong and be positive. Be happy.

Make the choice to be happy, and you will be happy.
