How to Let Go of the Past and Be Happy

Many people want to learn how to let go of the past and be happy but don’t know what to do because they’ve always done things a certain way. The key to being able to let go of things is to take action.

A lot of people wish they could move beyond challenges but don’t fully commit to doing it. It takes conscious and ongoing effort to change anything in your life. Here are some ideas to help you let go of the past:

  • Pick one thing you want to let go of.
  • Choose an alternative, some thought or action to replace what you used to do.
  • Every time you try to feel, think or do the old thing, replace it with the new one.
  • Repeat this action for at least thirty days.
  • Evaluate how you’re doing after thirty days. If you’re still doing the old thing, pick a new thing to replace it and practice that for thirty days.
  • Continue this process until you don’t do the old thing.

To be truly happy you have to be able to let go of past hurts. The good news is that you can do it whenever you decide to, as long as you’re willing to do the work necessary to move forward positively.

You’ll Be Happier If You Follow Your Inner Voice

You’ll Be Happier If You Follow Your Inner Voice

You'll be happier if you follow your inner voice. A lot of people think that finding happiness means giving over their thoughts and actions to some outside expert. While it's OK to seek advice and wisdom from others, it's vitally important to stay on your own path and follow your own voice as you move in a positive direction. Don't let other people define who you are or what you need to do. You're the only person who gets to decide what you do and where you want to go. Here are some ideas on how to follow your inner voice:

  • Make decisions for yourself.
  • Find out what makes you happy deep inside.
  • Choose what actions you're willing to take to make yourself happy.
  • Decide to think positively.
  • Praise yourself.
  • Listen to your own inner voice rather than other people's opinions.
  • Make a list of all the great things you do on your own.

You'll be much happier in life if you realize how powerful you are and how much control you have over your destiny.

Cheers,

Happiness Isn’t about Other People

Happiness Isn’t about Other People

A lot of people look at being happy as a way to get back at other people as in: Happiness is the best revenge. A major part of finding happiness is to stop looking at others and focus on your own thoughts and behaviors instead. The more responsibility you take for your own actions, the greater your ability to move your life in any direction you choose. Here are some ideas to help you move beyond relying on others for your happiness:

  • Think about what would truly bring you happiness in life.
  • Do one small thing each day to work toward that happiness.
  • Praise yourself when you've done something positive.
  • Keep evaluating what works and what you might want to change.
  • Keep doing things to build yourself up rather than relying on others.

Happiness isn't about other people, it's about your own thoughts and feelings. If you feel horrible about yourself, nobody can fix it from the outside. What do you do to create your own happiness?

Trusting Yourself Makes All the Difference

Trusting Yourself Makes All the Difference

Trusting yourself makes all the difference in life because, when you do, you open the door to living as the real you. Imagine waking up each day and doing things that bring you joy instead of dreading going to work or staying stuck doing the same stuff over and over. You have a voice deep inside that constantly tells you what you really want to do in life, it's up to you to listen to it rather than ignoring it.

Nothing prevents happiness more than not making decisions for yourself. When you try to create change in your life but it doesn't come from inside you, it will have no meaning and you're not very likely to keep following through. A positive way to create change is to make your own decisions and take action based on what you want to do. Try to avoid listening to what outside people or entities tell you to do because, ultimately, they are not you and they are not living your life. You'll also find that you build confidence each time you act on your own.
