Thoughts From Successful People To Help You Keep the Faith

I hope you find them useful, exciting, and helpful in trying times, when nothing seems “good enough.” I wish you the very best and may these quotes serve as a reminder that you are wonderful simply the way you are. You need not change for anyone else but yourself. Best of luck! With all your future endeavors may you receive happiness, faith, trust, and love from all those who care about you and those who you love as well! Lots and lots of best wishes for a hearty future and zealous life ahead! Best wishes.

                                                                              They may not have much to be happy about, but the simplicity behind that fact itself may make them happy.

                                                                              It’s all a matter of perspective, conscious effort and self-awareness. Listed below are a number of reasons why some people are always happy.

                                                                              1. They Manage Their Expectations

                                                                              They’re not crushed when they don’t get what they want – or misled into expecting to get the most out of every situation. They approach every situation pragmatically, hoping for the best but being prepared for the worst.

                                                                              2. They Don’t Set Unrealistic Standards

                                                                              Similar to the last point, they don’t live their lives in a constant pursuit towards impossible visions of perfection, only to always find themselves falling short of what they want.

                                                                              3. They Don’t Take Anything for Granted

                                                                              Happiness rests with feeling fulfilled – those who fail to stop and appreciate what they have every now and again will never experience true fulfillment.

                                                                              Advertising

                                                                              4. They’re Not Materialistic

                                                                              There are arguing viewpoints on whether or not money can really buy happiness; if it can, then we know from experience that we can never be satisfied because there will always be something newer or better that we want. Who has ever had enough money?

                                                                              5. They Don’t Dwell

                                                                              They don’t sweat the small things or waste time worrying about things that don’t really matter at the end of the day. They don’t let negative thoughts latch onto them and drain them or distract them. Life’s too short to worry.

                                                                              6. They Care About Themselves First

                                                                              They’re independent, care for themselves and understand that they must put their needs first in order to accommodate the needs of others.

                                                                              They indulge, aim to get what they want, make time for themselves and are extremely self-reliant.

                                                                              7. They Enjoy the Little Things

                                                                              They stop to smell the roses. They’re accustomed to find serenity when it’s available, to welcome entertainment or a stimulating discussion with a stranger when it crosses their path. They don’t overlook the small things in life that can be just as important.

                                                                              8. They Can Adapt

                                                                              They’re not afraid of change and they work to make the most out of new circumstances, good or bad. They thrive under pressure, are not overwhelmed easily and always embrace a change of pace.

                                                                              Advertising

                                                                              9. They Experiment

                                                                              They try new things, experience new flavors and never shy away from something they have yet to experience. They never order twice from the same menu.

                                                                              10. They Take Their Time

                                                                              They don’t unnecessarily rush through life. They work on their own schedule to the extent that they can and maneuver through life at their own relaxing pace.

                                                                              11. They Employ Different Perspectives

                                                                              They’re not stuck in one perspective; a loss can result in a new opportunity, hitting rock bottom can mean that there’s no where to go but up.

                                                                              12. They Seek to Learn

                                                                              Their constant pursuit of knowledge keeps them inspired and interested in life. They cherish information and are on a life-long quest to learn as much as they can.

                                                                              13. They Always Have a Plan

                                                                              They don’t find themselves drifting without purpose. When something doesn’t go as planned, they have a plan for every letter in the alphabet to fall back on.

                                                                              14. They Give Respect to Get It

                                                                              They are respectful and, in turn, are seen as respectable; the respect they exude earns them the respect they deserve.

                                                                              Advertising

                                                                              15. They Consider Every Opportunity

                                                                              They always have their eyes open for a new road, a new avenue worth exploring. They know how to recognize opportune moments and pounce on them to make the most of every situation. Success is inevitable for them.

                                                                              16. They Always Seek to Improve

                                                                              Perpetual self-improvement is the key towards their ongoing thirst for success. Whatever it is they do, they take pride in getting better and better, from social interactions to mundane tasks. Their pursuit at being the best eventually materializes.

                                                                              17. They Don’t Take Life Too Seriously

                                                                              They’re not ones to get offended easily over-analyze or complicate matters. They laugh at their own faults and misfortunes.

                                                                              18. They Live in the Moment

                                                                              They don’t live for tomorrow or dwell on what may have happened yesterday. Every day is a new opportunity, a new chapter. They live in the now, and in doing so, get the most out of every moment.

                                                                              You can learn how to do so too: How to Live in the Moment and Stop Worrying About the Past or Future

                                                                              19. They Say Yes

                                                                              Much more often than they say no. They don’t have to be badgered to go out, don’t shy away from new opportunities or anything that may seem inconvenient.

                                                                              Advertising

                                                                              20. They’re Self-Aware

                                                                              Most important, they’re wholly aware of themselves. They self-reflect and are conscious of their states of mind. If somethings bothering them, they fix it.

                                                                              We’re all susceptible to feeling down every now and again, but we are all equipped with the necessary solutions that just have to be discovered.

                                                                              Lack of confidence, inability to feel fulfilled, and susceptibility to stress are all matters that can be controlled through the way we handle our lives and perceive our circumstances.

                                                                              Learn about How Self-Reflection Gives You a Happier and More Successful Life.

                                                                              Final Thoughts

                                                                              The main philosophy employed by the happiest includes the idea that life’s simply too short: life’s too short to let things get you down, to take things for granted, to pursue absolute and unrealistic perfection.

                                                                              For some, employing these characteristics is a second nature – they do it without knowing. For others, a conscious effort must be put forth every now and again. Self-Awareness is key.

                                                                              More About Happiness
