The way I see it, everything is connected to everyone and everything exists in the world for everyone. From this vantage point, we can only see the big picture and try our best to understand which parts of ourselves are worthy of being happy and which ones need to be fulfilled individually. Whether you’re a happy-go-lucky optimist who believes that there’s always more than enough good in life, or a hard-nosed realism looking out for yourself, everything is connected and anything is possible. There really isn’t any limit to what you can achieve; as long as you put your heart on the right track, anything is possible. Let’s explore how this concept applies to your life:
What is Happiness?
Happiness is having the “the ability to be happy”, as it were. It’s the ability to be satisfied with one’s life and to be “satisfied with the world”. While happiness is a personal term, it’s extremely important to know what feelings happiness can cause when you’re present with it. Rather than shy away from the discussion, or make light of the concept, I want to put the focus on what happiness is truly about: contentment. This is the feeling of well-being that comes from a place of calmness and contentment. There are many ways to get this feeling, but the one and only way to get it is to Authenticate yourself.
Why Is Happiness Important?
Simply put, if you want to be happy, you have to put your heart on the right track. If you want to be fulfilled, you have to be happy inside. If you want to be active and laugh out loud, you have to have plenty of energy to function. If you want to be helpful and kind, you have to have plenty of joy to sustain your energy. If you want to be a contributing member of your community, you have to have plenty of joy to sustain your energy.
How to Achieve Happiness in Life and Business
Achieving happiness requires putting your energy into the right place at the right time. It requires “being there” for the people you care about, having the right amount of energy in the right place, and having the right mindset to support your goals. This may sound like common sense, but when you don’t have the energy, the right mindset, and the right people to support, what do you do? You look to the outside world for inspiration. You turn to social media for inspiration. You turn to your friends for inspiration. But what do you do when you’re not have the energy or the right person to support you? You turn to the people you trust and rely on for help: your family, your friends, and your community. These are the people who will help you achieve your goals.
The Psychology of Happiness
The importance of happiness is obvious. It’s not just that we’re all connected to the rest of nature, but it’s also what’s happening in the world right now that’s bringing us together: a lot of people are happy. The statistics are clear on this: more people are feeling contented than unhappy. It’s not a secret that happiness levels tend to fluctuate throughout the day, but when you look at the numbers, you see that people are also experiencing peaks and valleys in both happiness and contentment. It’s this fluctuating nature that’s exciting and powerful: we can see that people are still actively Finding themselves, and that they’re not “saying” they’re happy, but instead, being happy and then seeing how that affects others around them.
Types of Happiness and What to Do About It
There are 4 types of happiness: contentment, gratitude, optimism, and joy. Understanding what types of happiness are right for you and what to do about it can help you take control of your life. Contentment: When you’re content with the “the ability to be happy”, you can relax and take in all the life-sized models of happiness that are around town. You can create a space where you can sit and watch the world go by, and you can feel as though you’ve “atteness” to every moment. Grateful: When you feel like you’ve “attened” to something, you can’t wait to see what else is going on in the world. You can be thankful for what you have, because without it, you’d be dead without hope. Optimistic: You know you’re going to be okay, and that everything is going to be okay. You feel as though you know you can handle anything life has in store for you. You’re in control of your life, and everything is okay with that. JOYFUL: You feel as though you’re living a best-case scenario. You know you’re going to be okay, and everything is going to be okay. You don’t have to work, you don’t have to put in the hours that are necessary to survive, and you don’t have to deal with the daily struggles that come with it. You feel as though you’ve “attened” to what’s happening in the world, and that everything is okay with that.
Happiness is a state of mind. The more you allow yourself to “allow” it to be there, the more close you are to “being there”. When you’re happy, you’re present with the present, and you feel as though you’re in control of your life. When you’re content, you’re in the now, and you have an idea of what’s possible for you. These are the connections you’ll make when it comes to your happiness. If you’re able to make these connections, you can start to see things from a different perspective. When you’re happy, you’re in the here and now, not the future. You’re here right now, and everything is possible. So if you want to be happy, make sure you put your energy into the here and now, and see what comes up!
