We all know that Happiness can’t be Bought from market. Money can’t buy happiness. No matter how much we earn, no matter how much we have in the bank, no matter how nice our clothing or cars or toys, none of it will make us happier. And the sad thing is that it could take us decades of pursuing wealth and luxury items before we realize this. So Enjoy to read the Secrets of Happiness below.
1. Good Relationships:
We have a human need to be close, to be intimate, with other human beings. Having good, supportive friendships, a strong marriage or close and loving relationships with our family members will make us much more likely to be happy. Take time, today, to spend time with your loved ones, to tell them what they mean to you, to listen to them, and develop your relationship with them.
2. Find Your Passion:
As Malcolm Forbes, millionaire and publisher of Forbes magazine, once said, “The biggest mistake people make in life is not trying to make a living at doing what they most enjoy.” Identify what you’re truly passionate about and make a living out of it; the result will be a more fulfilled and happier you.
3. Think Positive:
Bottling up emotions and bad feelings creates psychological distress and physical discomfort. Happy people get things off their chest, their motto is: get rid of it, or it will get rid of you. Similarly, work at developing optimistic thinking; happy people always look on the bright side. Successful athletes know to focus on winning, not losing. We need to switch from a negative, glass-half-empty outlook to a glass-half-full and put optimism into practice to be happiest. Optimism is the mind’s natural self-defence mechanism against depression.
4. Look For Solutions Not Problems:
We get what we focus on! So focus on the good things – start practicing gratitude – be grateful for your life and the things and people you have in it. Once you start this way of thinking you will find even more great things - if something is not going right – look for what you want.
5. Do What You Want:
Painting, singing, writing, biking, swimming, gardening, reading, dancing, walking, woodcarving … what is your flame? What ignites you, inspires you, enlightens you, restores your life? Do it, and do it often. Do not believe your excuse of having too much work to do and too little time for what inspires you. Doing what inspires you is the very fuel that will give you the strength and motivation to do the other things you need to do, and do them well.
6. Enjoy Your Job:
Happy people do what they enjoy and enjoy what they do, and do it not for the money or glory. There’s no point being hold up in a job you can’t stand, surrounded by colleagues you don’t like just because the salary is good. It is fact that very often people forget that they are allowed to be happy at work, too. More and more men and women spend the best years of their lives trying to earn, sacrificing their health and family in the process, says Dr Garcia Vega. Later, they spend the same money they made working trying to recover their lost health and estranged family.
7. Let Go Off Your Past:
The past is good for two things: the happy memories, and the lessons it provides. Clinging to resentment and sadness for past events hurts one person the most: you. Don’t let the past suck the gift of the present out of you. Forgive. Let go. Be here now, and go forward.
8. Listen Only To Winners:
There are a heap of people who will give you advice on your money, your health, your career and your relationships as well as many other things. Remember birds of a feather flock together and misery loves company. So ask yourself next time someone offers you advice, “are they practicing what they preach”? Are they a winner in that area. If not smile, say thank you and move on.
9. Vote For Happiness:
Don’t be scared of re-evaluating your goals. Your life is your life your life, it’s a story that you can edit and examine as you go along. This flexible approach requires positive thinking and an open mind, you need to actively choose to be happy. Happiness can be learned, but finding meaning and a purpose in life is what leads to it, not the other way around. The happiest people value and realise that being happy adds years to their life, and life to their years.
