Too often people allow exterior influences to completely control their happiness, not allowing them to bounce back, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Levels of happiness can fluctuate, but knowing what controls these levels can help you regain happiness. Know that happiness is yours to hold onto, not for others to rob from you. When you understand this, life is much more balanced than allowing emotions to always dictate your mood.
So, if happiness seems difficult for you to find right now, here are the two things you need to pay the most attention to:
First, know what is in your control and outside of your control, but realize that there’s more within your control than you probably think.
Far too often, people keep themselves concerned with things that they cannot change. This would be the first area that I would pay attention to when looking at your happiness levels. If you’re in business, then please understand that there isn’t much you can do to change the overall current market or economy. You can do your part and influence what you can, but there’s a natural upswing and downswing to things. Patience is the key in waiting for things to come back around.Far too often, people keep themselves concerned with things that they cannot change. Click To Tweet
Also, if you allow the choices of others to alter your happiness, then again, you are allowing something in which you do not control to sway your happiness levels. Remember your choices are yours and the decisions of others are theirs. You are not responsible for the choices of others, but you are responsible for your actions and reactions to things. You control your perception. This being said, you control more than you probably think.
Second, live with the decisions that you’ve made or make the choice to go a different direction, but stop complaining about the choices you are choosing to live with.
Seriously, complaining is just wasting time. If you aren’t happy with your life, please realize that it is your choice to stay stuck, or to choose a different path for your life. You choose to have the job you are in, you choose to work the amount of hours that you do, you choose to live where you live, and the list goes on. I know this may sound harsh, but it’s the truth.Complaining is just wasting time. Click To Tweet
Now, I do wish I could say that I’ve always practiced these things, but the truth is I have to remind myself of these truths often. That’s me being vulnerable and that’s me showing you what I’ve learned along the way. I do admit that it’s easy to forget that my busyness is a choice, but I’d never choose to do life differently.
When you focus on doing these things, you will live a happier life. Now, go and be happy, today.
