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!

7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

7 Powerful Questions To Find Out What You Want To Do With Your Life

What do I want to do with my life? It’s a question all of us think about at one point or another.

For some, the answer comes easily. For others, it takes a lifetime to figure out.

It’s easy to just go through the motions and continue to do what’s comfortable and familiar. But for those of you who seek fulfillment, who want to do more, these questions will help you paint a clearer picture of what you want to do with your life.

1. What are the things I’m most passionate about?

The first step to living a more fulfilling life is to think about the things that you’re passionate about.

What do you love? What fulfills you? What “work” do you do that doesn’t feel like work? Maybe you enjoy writing, maybe you love working with animals or maybe you have a knack for photography.

The point is, figure out what you love doing, then do more of it.

2. What are my greatest accomplishments in life so far?

Think about your past experiences and the things in your life you’re most proud of.

How did those accomplishments make you feel? Pretty darn good, right? So why not try and emulate those experiences and feelings?

If you ran a marathon once and loved the feeling you had afterwards, start training for another one. If your child grew up to be a star athlete or musician because of your teachings, then be a coach or mentor for other kids.

Continue to do the things that have been most fulfilling for you.

3. If my life had absolutely no limits, what would I choose to have and what would I choose to do?

Here’s a cool exercise: Think about what you would do if you had no limits.

If you had all the money and time in the world, where would you go? What would you do? Who would you spend time with?

These answers can help you figure out what you want to do with your life. It doesn’t mean you need millions of dollars to be happy though.

What it does mean is answering these questions will help you set goals to reach certain milestones and create a path toward happiness and fulfillment. Which leads to our next question …

4. What are my goals in life?

Goals are a necessary component to set you up for a happy future. So answer these questions:

Once you figure out the answers to each of these, you’ll have a much better idea of what you should do with your life.

5. Whom do I admire most in the world?

Following the path of successful people can set you up for success.

Think about the people you respect and admire most. What are their best qualities? Why do you respect them? What can you learn from them?

You’re the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.[1] So don’t waste your time with people who hold you back from achieving your dreams.

Spend more time with happy, successful, optimistic people and you’ll become one of them.

6. What do I not like to do?

An important part of figuring out what you want to do with your life is honestly assessing what you don’t want to do.

What are the things you despise? What bugs you the most about your current job?

Maybe you hate meetings even though you sit through 6 hours of them every day. If that’s the case, find a job where you can work more independently.

The point is, if you want something to change in your life, you need to take action. Which leads to our final question …

7. How hard am I willing to work to get what I want?

Great accomplishments never come easy. If you want to do great things with your life, you’re going to have to make a great effort. That will probably mean putting in more hours the average person, getting outside your comfort zone and learning as much as you can to achieve as much as you can.

But here’s the cool part: it’s often the journey that is the most fulfilling part. It’s during these seemingly small, insignificant moments that you’ll often find that “aha” moments that helps you answer the question,

“What do I want to do with my life?”

So take the first step toward improving your life. You won’t regret it.
