Three ways to happiness

 

 

Do what you feel you need to do, and do it well.

When you procrastinate little tasks, you avoid a short period fear and work. The downside of this bargain is that you trade this for a long period of worry and a low feeling. The more you postpone things, the more stressful you feel and the more work piles up. Eventually you become completely overwhelmed and want to sink into a hole. Keep your spirits up by getting things done as soon as you can. You will feel proud and calm once you are done. As an added bonus, you become less driven by fear as you train your courage. Courage enables you to be driven by love.

See the bright side of things.

Every cloud has a silver lining. Keep your eyes wide open for the sparkle and actively welcome it into your life. Look for opportunities. In every situation there is something to learn or something to enjoy. If you work with a bunch of mean biddies and jerks, you can learn to stick up for yourself while staying graceful. If you work with sweethearts and charmers, enjoy having a fun office. If you are a stay at home wife, enjoy your time at home and learn to plan your own day. If you have little money, you can learn to budget. If you have lots of money, you can learn how to maintain and enjoy it. If you can do this, no one can make you unhappy.

Choose friends that enhance your happiness.Good moods are contagious and regretfully, so are bad moods. Spend the overwhelming majority of your time with happy people.  Of course, everyone, even the most positive people face adversity at times. A good friend is there for others when times are rough. However, if someone chooses to wallow in sadness, cherish misery and court bad luck as a habit, don’t pour your energy into a bottomless pit. Also stay away from people who constantly criticise everything and everyone, They make people feel unhappy with their habit of being abrasive and rob you of an opportunity to see the silver lining. Don’t allow yourself to be robbed.
