Today I want to cover some simple ways to get your fair share of happiness in life
But before we get into it I want to know what the word “happiness” conjured up in you.
Did it bring a smile to your face or did your face just screw-up into a nasty frown?
Has life become too serious for you with fun or happiness feeling short-changed?
Happiness is a conscious decision. You can choose to be happy or sad.
A quick word about being sad. There is nothing inherently wrong in being sad as it can serve a healing purpose. For example somebody did something bad to you, or you had a horrible day at work. Sadness can become an issue if you stay “in the emotion” for too long. As somebody once said to me… you can visit “pity city” but you can’t live there.
Back to happiness…
Many people consider happiness to revolve around money, spending and security. Certainly, there is an element of this notion for most but being rich does not guarantee happiness, as it introduces other worries.
In the movie “The Pursuit of Happyness” Will Smith struggles through many difficult circumstances in the pursuit of a better life, and despite his circumstances he realized with each new day he got to decide his thoughts and attitude which influenced his outcomes – happy or sad.
Life is not a race to the finish line. It’s about the journey and the need to enjoy that journey – after all you only get to make it once!
I’ve found many people with hobbies are happy. They get absorbed in their hobby and it gives them great pleasure… just show an interest in their hobby and watch their face light up!
If you’re struggling to get to a place of happiness then one of the best places to begin is through quiet time and meditation. If you have difficulty quietening your mind, then you might want to try self-hypnosis.

In this hectic and demanding world we can all do with more “happiness” in our life.
Most of us can’t be “in happiness” mode 365-days a year but in my book if it feels like a rarity to be happy then something is wrong, and the only person that can do something to change it… is you.
Make the decision to have thoughts of happiness over the next 30-days whatever happens. Try it on for size. It will show in your face and be infectious to others. After the 30-days ask those you interacted with on a daily basis during the period if they noticed a change in you.
I’m betting you’ll be surprised and delighted with the responses, and want to continue.
Let me know how it turns out for you.
