Learning to Be Happy with Yourself
How Do You Just Be Happy

How Do You Just Be Happy


People ask me how they can leave all their junk behind and just be happy. The answer is to take action and do things that lead to happiness. Here are some ideas to help you get started:

Be Grateful

Sometimes we get so busy and goal-oriented in life that we forget to be grateful for what we have instead of worrying about what we don't. An important part of being happy is the ability to focus on what's going right as well as the simple wonders in the world: A sunset, a tree, a child, ourselves, our ability to have a kind conversation with someone or the fact we're alive and breathing.

Worry Less about Money

A lot of people think money is the most important element of being happy. While it's important to be able to cover your bills and basic needs, money doesn't make you happier because it doesn't fulfill psychological needs beyond basic safety or comfort. No amount of money can heal the hurts you carry inside. Thankfully, you can choose to begin healing yourself at any time, with or without money.

Build up Positive Self-Esteem

The way to achieve positive self-esteem is to do the things in life that really mean something to you. Each time you do something meaningful you experience success and feel great about yourself. Even when things don't go well you still feel positive because you're following your true path in life. Self-esteem comes from doing the things you love and realizing how wonderful you are along the way.

Keep It Simple

It's easy to become overwhelmed or overloaded if you try to do too many things at once. A positive way to be more happy is to keep things simple by working on one task at a time. Finish that task and then move on to the next. Congratulate yourself along the way.

Be Aware of Your Actions

A lot of people go through life as if they're unconscious. They think and act the way they always have, do the things they've always done and then they're surprised when they don't get along with others or negative things happen.

The key to being happy in life is to be aware of your actions rather than always assuming that the results you get are because of what other people do. Once you understand how your actions affect you and the people around you and you'll live a more conscious and balanced life

Celebrate Your Accomplishments

As you continue your journey to be happy you might fall into the pattern of only focusing on what's not going well. Whenever you feel that way, take a moment to redirect your thoughts to something positive. Think about the great things you've accomplished and pat yourself on the back for the things you have done rather than those you haven't. Try not to dwell on what's not working and refocus on what has worked.

There's no quick path to happiness, it requires ongoing effort and commitment. Try the ideas we've talked about here and you'll be on your way to living a much happier life.

Do Meaningful Things

Do Meaningful Things


It's easy to feel empty when you don't do things that really matter. Even people with a lot of money and power can feel unfulfilled because their thoughts and actions don't mean anything. Being genuinely happy in life means that you do meaningful things like helping people, listening to your inner voice, connecting on a deeper level with others, learning new things, healing your issues, or making the world a better place. These types of activities will create long-lasting happiness in your life and help you enjoy the journey.

Make Wise Decisions

Make Wise Decisions

Your decisions today can have a great impact on your future. That’s why happy people pay careful attention to what their inner voices are saying and make wise decisions that will benefit them (and others) in the long run. It’s easy to do things impulsively and then sift through the aftermath, but living consciously and authentically requires doing some thinking up front before you take action. Take the time to examine yourself in depth. Discover who you really are and what you really want to do in life. The more you know yourself the more happy your life will be.

How You Treat Others Will Determine Your Happiness

How You Treat Others Will Determine Your Happiness

There will be many occasions in your life where you'll be faced with a choice between treating others with kindness and compassion or in some other way that doesn't lead in a healthy direction. The key to being happy in life is to behave in ways that create positive waves. Treat others with care and you not only benefit them, but also yourself and the world.

While it may be difficult to behave kindly in all situations, when you opt for doing something negative it always has unwelcome repercussions inside you or in the outside world. It just never feels food when you've done something negative. On the other hand, if you treat others with kindness and compassion you will never have to worry about whether you did the right thing.
