Happiness is the most sought after thing today. I would like to present my tried and tested seven steps to happiness. There are many recipes to happiness, but before we get there, let me state clearly that happiness is a state of mind which all of us can achieve; if only we tried. It isn’t that elusive pot of gold at the end of the rainbow that we make it out to be.
Try these seven steps to happiness and see yourself bloom as a person.
Stop complaining. That is simple; isn’t it? However, it seems like we are a race that cannot stop complaining and grumbling all the time. We could either be speaking out these feelings of discontentment aloud or we could just be ruminating over the dissatisfaction in our lives in our mind; either way it only helps us to become more miserable and wound up with the way life is turning out to be. Complaining stops you from seeing things as they are; it focuses on the negative and spreads the sense of negativity to all areas of your life. It loves to make the martyr out of you and encourages you to indulge in a pity party that takes you nowhere. Thus, the next time you feel like complaining, look for reason to be grateful, look for the good things that situation/life still offers you. Amend your complaint into a statement of gratitude. An attitude of gratitude can make your life a heaven on earth.

Our mind is a fascinating system which could be channeled to help us achieve incredible things. However, we hardly ever put it to use effectively because we are unaware of the power within. For ages, we have been taught to look outside to build up ourselves; the truth is we have so much power within that if we combined our acquired knowledge and skills with our inner natural resources we could achieve much more than we could even dare to dream or believe.
Do you want to know how to get what you want from life? I am sure that all of us do.
I have heard many people ask this question – Why am I unhappy? Do you sometimes ask yourself this too? Last week, someone I have known for a long time declared that she was quite unhappy. People who meet her casually would have never guessed that she was unhappy; however, if you knew her well enough you would know why she wasn’t happy with herself. There is nothing lacking in her life, she has all she wants and yet she is unhappy.
There are difficult people all around. They are a part of this puzzle called life. You really don’t have to handle difficult people, did you know that? I really mean it. Let them be and they will handle themselves. What you need to handle is your own emotions and reactions to what they say and do. Well if you are not sure about what I am saying read on, to find out how.
Have you ever experienced feeling empty within? If you have, you are not alone. There are many out there who feel empty though they lead seemingly successful and busy lives. The feelings of emptiness could be from a lack of love, direction, or meaning in life. However, it is usually a sign of a deep seated need.
Do you jump out of bed every morning with enthusiasm and excitement to take on your day? If you did, you don’t need to read any further. If you don’t, this article could help you motivate yourself to live each day with passion and energy.
Life without passion and excitement is dreary existence. It is possible that you have a job that doesn’t actually have you glowing with excitement. Maybe you have a marriage that doesn’t exude any fire. It is possible that you have a social life which is non-existent, whatever maybe your state; it is possible to live life with zeal and passion. You need to motivate yourself to life your life with enthusiasm.
Inner peace often sounds alien and mystical to most of us. It shouldn’t really be that way, as it is only a state of mind like happiness , sorrow or fear.
Most of us wish that we had more than 24 hours in a day, we are so busy trying to do things. Nevertheless, being busy does not mean they really accomplish anything. You need to be productive. Are you satisfied with your levels of productivity?
