Be Happy and These 5 Amazing Things Will Happen

Be Happy and These 5 Amazing Things Will Happen

What is it about happiness that seems so elusive? Like a butterfly, it comes, stays a little and then flits off. You can have more happy moments and the more you have, the more amazing your life may be. There are so many books on finding happiness, and just by simply being grateful for the little things in your life every day your mood can shift to a happier state.

The natural state of children is happiness. Then life happens and you take on all kinds of expectations for how life should be. There are difficult times as well as uncertainty. Social pressure puts a tremendous strain on the state of mind of most people. All of this contributes to the lack of happiness in so many people. With a little bit of a shift in perspective you could live your life with more happy moments and this contributes to some amazing things that will happen.

Here are some amazing things that will happen when you seek out happiness.

1. You will see your life shifting to bring in more positive things.

You may think that first you need the good stuff in life, and only then can you be happy. Try the opposite approach. Be happy for no reason and see how more positive things start coming your way.

2. You will feel more beautiful and love looking at your smiling reflection.

Look in the mirror and try a non-expressive look and see how it makes you feel. Then put a huge grin on your face and see what others see when your expression and mood is one of happiness.

3. You will look more lovely to others that see you as you radiate positive energy when you are happy.

A happy person emits rays of energy that is magnetic and pulls people in. Watch and see what happens when you enter a room smiling, and the difference when you enter without a smile. It really puts people more at ease as well as makes you feel good.

4. You will be treated better by others because they will be drawn to mirror your happy state.

When someone is unhappy it rubs off on those around them. People try and stay away from unhappy energy and are drawn to help and serve those that have joy emanating from them.

5. You will find that your happiness makes you want to take good care of yourself.

Perhaps you will choose healthier food, work out, and dress in clothing that makes you feel good.

Happiness can be learned. It is not as if some people are born happy and others not. The book “The Happiness Project” is a great start on the journey of leaving unhappy moods behind and embracing a life with more joyful moments. You will reap the benefits right away.

Another way to life your spirits and help you feel happier when you’re feeling down is to listen to a great uplifting piece of music. This helps make you feel happy. The one we have been hearing non stop always works!

Being around happy people contributes to your state of joy as well. Seek out people that lift your spirits and you will find yourself happier. When you are around people that are not in a happy state for a good part of the time you are together it’s a lot harder to maintain the happy state you want.

So go for it. Do whatever it takes to get into a happy state. Read, music, happy people, gratitude. That’s a start!

What Makes People Happy? 20 Secrets of “Always Happy” People

What Makes People Happy? 20 Secrets of “Always Happy” People

Some people just seem to float through life with a relentless sense of happiness – through the toughest of times, they’re unfazed and aloof, stopping to smell the roses and drinking out of a glass half full.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
