Success and Happiness

Last Update: April 11, 2017

Success and happiness go hand in hand. It means something different to all of us and actually at different stages of our lives success and happiness can mean something totally different to even us. It's a journey we all take and how we go about that journey determines our happiness.

It's so easy to become tangled in past fears and negativity. Let go of them, they just keep you stagnant. Forgive and forget past hurts. No oh poor me, why does it always happen to me? It's your choice to be happy or not. What can you do to fix it. First you have to change your attitude. Happiness is a habit. It's said that if you do something for 21 days in a row it will become a habit. Can you be happy for 21 days?

Abraham Lincoln said, "Most people are about as happy as they make their minds up to be". We are all just struggling to get by in this life and can only do the best we can do to be the best we can be.

If life isn't working out for you then fix it. Try being your own motivational coach. Look at your situation and ask yourself what do I want out of life. Yes, I want to be happy but what will make me happy? Will money make me happy? Maybe for a while but in the long haul it won't. The old saying goes money won't buy you happiness.

I'm aiming to be an expert in my niche and if my family are well and happy. That will be happiness and success to me.

Once you know what is going to make you happy work towards it. It's going to take work but all things worth while are going to take work. When you reach that place in yourself where happiness lives stay their, hang out, you don't have to keep searching.

Life is a gift, be grateful for it. I heard it said happiness is like a boomerang, throw out happiness and love and it comes right back to you just like the law of attraction. If you were to die tomorrow what regrets would you have. Thats where you need to start to make a change. Do it and make it happen.

Just remember to smile it makes people wonder what you're thinking.
