Do you feel like your life could be happier? You know things are going okay, but you just feel that they could be better.
What if I told you that it could be as simple as just changing your attitude?
My Friend, Amit Amin from HappierHuman.com, says that it is when we take full responsibility for our happiness and stop blaming others, that we can truly find happiness.
I truly believe that it completely hinges on our perspectives. Only you can decide if you are going to be happy. This also ripples its way into other areas of our lives.
I like to practice “flip switch” when you notice that your thoughts or mood is negative or lower than you would like. First you stop your current thinking and then start thinking more positively for at least 17 seconds. This is enough time to change your prospective. The more often you practice this, the more likely it is that your positive thinking will become a habit.
“You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.”
― Albert Camus
