Your Words Affect Your Mind: 10 Things Happy People Say Every Day

Your Words Affect Your Mind: 10 Things Happy People Say Every Day

Do you think you are a happy person? Truly happy people do not wait for happiness to find them; instead, they bring positivism and happiness to themselves. They understand that their words are the best tools they have to make others happy, which makes them happy too. Check out these 10 things happy people say every day:

1. “I am really happy to see you.”

A huge part of making yourself happy is making sure that the people around you are happy. This statement is one of the simplest ways to let someone know that being in their presence makes you feel positive, and it shows that you value and respect them.

2. “Seeing you always makes me happy.”

This ups the ante of the previous statement–it is presenting the same positive message while implying that the person you are talking to always holds the power to make you feel positive. For the person you are talking to, they will feel grateful, appreciative and happy, and you will feel happy for putting a smile on someone’s face.

3. “I took your suggestion.”

If someone has given you advice, it is normally because they care about you and want to help to come up with solutions to your problems. No doubt this will have made you feel good–we all love to be cared for! It doesn’t matter if they gave you advice on how to save money or if they recommended a café; return the favour by telling them that you listened to them, and what they said impacted and benefited you.

4. “You have come so far.”

A big part of happiness is celebrating achievements and accomplishments, as this takes hard work and effort. Give something back and reward your friends for their achievements–they will appreciate the gesture.

5. “I was really impressed when you…”

Take number four one step further and focus on specific achievements your loved ones have made. Instead of just making your friend feel good, this offers proof to them that they are a hard-working achiever.

6. “I know you’re capable of more.”

Everyone needs a push sometimes, especially if they are having a tough time. Part of a loving relationship is coaching someone to achieve their full potential. Saying this can help remind your friends how awesome they really are. If saying this pushes them to achieve more, they will remember your comment and feel inspired and grateful.

7. “I’d like to hear what you think about…”

If you love and respect someone, it is very likely that you will value their opinions. However, many people don’t want to share their opinions because they don’t want to seem too forward or too pushy. Instead, show your friends and co-workers than their opinions are important and relevant to you.

8. “Tell me more.”

This statement is both kind and reassuring; many people worry that they have been talking for too long and that no one is listening or interested. This tells them that you are still listening, and that you value what they are saying to you.

9. “You’re welcome.”

There are many ways to say you are thankful; “no worries”, “no problem” and “don’t worry about it”. However, the best way to say this is to say “you’re welcome”. It is more appreciative, and it acknowledges their thanks properly.

10. “Thank you.”

Many of the words on this list reflect appreciation and gratitude. “Thank you” is the most powerful way to do this, and for many people it has more power and meaning behind it. For instance; thank you for reading this article!

Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

Why It’s Never Too Late To Redefine Yourself

The ability to reinvent and redefine yourself is a bold, daring and purposeful choice. It doesn’t just happen. You have to make a conscious, intentional choice and then follow through.

If the thought of forging a new path, changing habits, thought patterns and your inner circle of friends scares you – you’re not alone. Change can be a very scary thing. It takes courage, fortitude and a bit of faith to decide to shed your old self and don a new persona. However, it is one of the most critical processes one must repeatedly endure in the pursuit of destiny. Change unlocks new levels of potential.

The Need for Change

Everyday when we wake up, we make a decision. We decide to follow our routine or we decide to go off script and shake things up a bit. For those who are creatures of habit, routine is comfortable, easy and produces very little stress. The problem with this is, after a while you stop growing.

We all reinvent ourselves at some point in our lives. It is absolutely necessary to achieve certain levels of success.

Reflect back on who you were as a teenager and then who you were at 25. Those are two very different people. Most of us are completely different. Your thought patterns changed, your appearance, job, level of education and even your friends– changed. We like to refer to this as “growing up” or maturing and consider it to be one of life’s natural progressions. However the changes you made were purposeful and deliberate.

This process must be a lifelong and continuous cycle. You are never too old to refresh yourself.

    Signs It’s Time to Redefine

    “Just as established products and brands need updating to stay alive and vibrant, you periodically need to refresh or reinvent yourself.”– Mireille Guiliano

    So how do you know when it’s time for a system upgrade? There are signs along the way that alert you that it is time for an overhaul. The first sign is the feeling of being stuck. If you feel like you are in a rut, you’re bored with life or you need some newness and excitement, a self reinvention may be in order. Re-evaluate your life vision and your goals. Is that vision still valid and are your goals consistent with your vision and–are they achievable? If you are off course, it’s time for a change. If you are not moving forward and making progress, it’s time for a change.

    In life, there’s no such thing as neutrality–you’re either moving forward or you are moving backward. Time constantly moves forward and if you are standing still, you are actually losing ground. No matter your age or stage in life– there is always room for improvement.

    “You’re never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream.” ~C. S. Lewis

    The second sign that you are due for a change is the occurrence of major life events in which change is forced upon you. Getting married, starting a new job, being promoted, ending a relationship, becoming a parenting or relocating are all prime opportunities to completely overhaul your life.

    When these major shifts occur in your life–you have to shift with them. You can’t have a single mentality and have a successful marriage. You can’t remain selfish and irresponsible, and raise a healthy, well-adjusted child. You can’t be promoted to a supervisory position and keep the same subordinate attitude. Each level of success requires something different from you.

      Consider, for a moment, Arnold Schwarzenegger. People may have different opinions about his character and some of his life choices, but he is a master at reinventing himself. He achieved the ultimate success as a professional body builder by earning the title “Mr. Universe” three times. He then earned a tremendous amount of fame and fortune in the entertainment industry making action/adventure films. And in his latest role, he served two terms as the Governor of California. He succeeded as a professional body builder, a film star and a politician. Each role required massive amounts of change, commitment, strength and hard work.

      And if Arnold can do it…so can you!
