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.
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.
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.
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.
Feel Good About Yourself
Happiness could be the most elusive thing if you search for it outside of yourself. When you do so, you hook your emotions on strings that can easily be pulled and tugged by others. You need to be in control of your life, your emotions and your goals.

I need to change my life’. If you have been feeling this way, then you are going through a difficult phase in your life and you need a break. Did you stop to think what is it that is holding you back?
