Are you in pursuit of happiness? Happiness Starts with you

Are you happy? We are all in pursuit of happiness.  For me, that question was a real game-changer. Happiness is something we all want but it’s not always easy to achieve. So I set out on a quest to find out what makes us happy and how we can create more joy in our lives. I learned that happiness isn’t about getting everything we think we need, but rather knowing what makes us truly happy and going after it with everything we’ve got.


You can change the way you think and feel


  • You can change how you feel: Practice gratitude and appreciation, get enough sleep, find ways to relax, exercise regularly and eat healthy food. This will help you cope with stress and increase your well-being.


  • You can change what you think about: Focus on the positive things in your life instead of dwelling on things that upset or bother you; keep a gratitude journal or list for when negativity gets overwhelming; let go of negative thoughts about yourself by focusing on your strengths instead of your weaknesses; write down positives about yourself every morning before getting out of bed (or whenever).


  • You can change the way you react to situations: Don’t judge other people or their actions—there are always two sides to every story; try not to take everything personally—others may be reacting negatively because they have an issue with themselves rather than with you personally; focus on solving problems rather than being right all the time (this applies to relationships as well); try not overreacting (e.g., saying something hurtful) when someone else does something wrong because chances are good it wasn’t intentional but rather due a mistake made due lack experience/knowledge/etc.).


One small change can transform your life


If you have a long list of goals that you’re trying to achieve and a habit of starting new habits, yet never finishing them, I’ve got some good news for you! One small change can transform your life. Just one. That’s it! And by implementing one small change into your day-to-day routine, you’ll be able to see the benefits of making lasting changes in no time at all.


A lot of people start taking steps toward happiness but don’t stick with it because they want big results right away. Or maybe they are afraid that if they make small changes, nothing will change and they’ll still feel unhappy or depressed after several weeks (or months). The truth is though: happiness doesn’t come from having everything go exactly how we want it too all the time–but rather when we learn how to adapt ourselves so that our life responds positively rather than negatively in situations where things don’t go as planned.


Changing your habits takes time


Changing your habits can be difficult. It’s not a matter of simply deciding to change and then doing so, but requires dedication and work. Don’t expect to see results overnight—or even in a month, for that matter. You might feel like you’re getting nowhere at first, but don’t give up! If there’s something about your life that you want to change for the better, it will take time and patience before those changes become part of who you are.


It may seem daunting at first—but don’t let fear stop you from taking action. Be willing to try new things (even if they seem silly or uncomfortable), especially when it comes to cultivating positive habits like exercise or meditation that help improve your mental health in the long run by reducing stress levels or anxiety attacks altogether over time (or even just making them less severe). You shouldn’t compare yourself too closely with other people either: while some people may find themselves falling back into old habits in spite of their best efforts not too long after starting on some type.


Find what makes you happy, then do more of that


Finding what makes you happy is the first step to being happier. Start by asking yourself:


  • What am I passionate about?


  • What do I want to do with my life?


  • Who are the people in my life that make me feel good, and why am I around them?


Your answers will help guide you toward a more fulfilling future, which will lead to greater happiness as a result. You can also look into how others have found their passion—here’s some inspiration from TED speakers:


Change comes from within


You may be thinking, “Isn’t happiness about other people and the world around me?” The answer is yes, but happiness is also about you. It’s all about how you feel on the inside.


Most people think their happiness depends on what happens in their lives and on whether or not they have enough money or other material things. But that’s not true. When we’re happy, it’s because we’ve made up our minds to be happy—not because something happened outside us to make us so.


Happiness doesn’t come from having more stuff; it comes from having a positive attitude toward ourselves and others.
If you want to change your life by making yourself happier, start with these three steps:


You don’t have to know all ‘the answers’


You don’t have to know all ‘the answers’.


  • Change is possible.


  • You can change your habits.


  • You can change your mindset.


  • And ultimately, you will find what makes you happy!


Once you start feeling happier, your whole world changes


The benefits of being happier are endless. Once you start feeling happier, your whole world changes. You will be more productive and creative at work, as well as in your personal life. You’ll have more energy and be more likely to succeed in both your career and with the people around you. You’ll feel better about yourself and others will notice it too! Being happy makes us take care of our bodies better – so it could lead to better health overall.


You can change your life by changing the way you think and feel. Happiness doesn’t come from external sources. It comes from within us as humans, but we have a choice every day to either cherish this gift or squander it. The power is in our hands and our hearts, so let’s use them wisely!
