Do you want to know the secret of happy, peaceful, interesting, beautiful and extremely exciting life? OK, I will write it down for you. Now you have to promise that you will read this very carefully – You already know the answer. Deep inside, if you would listen to your inner self, you would hear the little voice that is telling you, “It’s all about you. You are the secret”.
It is about your mind, the way you think. People, who are successful and happy about themselves and everything around them, know that it is not about the result, it is about their attitude. Other people, circumstances, reliance on luck or coincidences won’t affect you anymore if you will have “how to live happier life” mindset.
“Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being defined by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. Happy mental states may also reflect judgments by a person about their overall well-being.”
You can choose what kind of emotions you will feel and display. Most of us think that without affection we can’t feel happy. Yes, it’s true, but not a lot of people decide to create by themselves positive emotions to achieve happiness.
If you feel any kind of negative emotions, do this quick experiment. Go and stand in front of a mirror. Have a close look at your reflection. Notice how you feel. Now change your expression to big, happy smile. Just smile and look at yourself in a mirror. Stay like that for a minute. How do you feel now?
I am sure that you felt better and happier. When I did this experiment for the first time, it helped me to believe that it is me, who can make a difference. This is a simple proof that we can change our inner emotional state and achieve happiness.
YOU are the only person who is 100% responsible for your life. It is about making a decision and stick to it no matter what. Taking full responsibility.
This is the little gold key, which unlocks the door to success. You need to take action and be responsible for life and circumstances. It means that you need to dominate the situation. You have to accept how things are and commit yourself to make them in the way you want them to be.
As harsh it may seem, you have to stop complaining and whining. No more excuses. Put your sh*t together, take action and make it right!
It is not an easy thing to do, believe me. It takes a lot of courage, toughness, self-confidence, mental strength and lot more. But it is worth it! Don’t worry if at this moment while you are reading this, you think that you can’t do this. Yes, you can. That you don’t have that kind of power. Oh, yes you do!
It takes time and patience, but it is possible.
