Recommend this page to Google

The true happiness you seek is within you. Happiness is a state of mind. What makes one person happy might not do anything for the person across the room. If two people were handed the same amount of money one of them would be delighted and the other one would think to themselves,
"That's not enough."

Happiness is different for every person. But the reasons they are or are not happy are the same. It's up to you to decide to be happy and the 10 reasons below will help you to be happier.

Negativity - A negative outlook on life will bring more negative vibes into your life. Negative feelings are a choice you make. Negativity is like a disease that eats away at your happiness. It can ruin your entire emotional state of mind if you let it.

Gratitude - Learning to be grateful for the things that you already have in your life will help you find abounding happiness. And it will give room for more blessings to flow into your life.

Wording - The words you use to describe what happiness means to you may be what's holding you back. If you constantly find yourself saying, "I want to be happy," then your focus is on the fact that you're not. Change that wording to something like, "I want the happiness I already have to expand," this not only changes the focus, but it changes the way you feel about the statement.

Timing - Life and the universe don't always pan out in the timeframe you would like for it to. Understanding that there is a time for everything will help you realize that if what you were wishing for doesn't happen today then there is a reason. And that the day it does happen it will be better than you could have ever dreamed it to be.

Take Action - Are you taking action on the things that would make you happy? You can't expect happiness to fall into your lap. You must take daily action towards the things that will make you happy in life.

Clear Picture - In order to truly be happy, you must have a clear picture of what will make you happy. Simple statements such as, "I want to be rich," or "I want a good job" is not enough. You need to be specific about what would make you truly happy.

Believe The Possibilities - Believing that what you really want is already on its way will help you to manifest that happiness in your life.

Feel Happy - I know, sounds too simple. But you need to work daily on getting a happy feeling in your heart. Really work on this. You'll be surprised at the difference it will make in your life.

Other People - Take a look around at the people that you communicate with on a daily basis. Does simply being around them make you feel good inside? If not, then it's time to seek people that make you feel good about life. Talking with people who really enjoy life will help you become a happy
person yourself.

Relax - Happiness is what you're looking for. But if you spend all your time searching for it and not taking any time to appreciate the things you already have to be happy about you're missing out. Take time to relax and rejuvenate. Then when you come back your brain is recharged and ready to act on things that will create your happiness.

Now you have a choice to make. You can choose to wallow in negative thoughts or you can decide to be happy. Yes, things might come along that can put a damper on your happy feeling. But you can choose to get back up, dust yourself off and walk away with a smile on your face. The choice really is yours.

Go ahead and make a daily effort to seek out your own happiness. Before you know it the majority of your life will be happy and carefree. And that will allow more happiness to manifest in your life. It's a win/win situation.
