Create Your Own Happiness For Your Mind And Body Health

"Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”
Herman Cain quotes

"The reason people find it so hard to be happy is that they always see the past better than it was, the present worse than it is,
and the future less resolved than it will be”
Marcel Pagnol quotes

We spend our life  trying to be successful so we can be happy. We acquire wealth and are still  not happy. Many of you have seen many wealthy people who are not happy. Likewise, we have seen poor people who are happy, because they  have learnt the secrets of being happy. You create your own happiness. It comes from within you. Nothing outside you can give you as much happiness as what comes from inside you. Therefore, these are some of the principles you have to abide bye if you want to be happy:
  • Regard every day as a clean slate you can paint anything on. The possibilities are limitless. Hence each day, with this attitude, you have the aptitude and capability to create your own life as you want it. Happiness comes when you see the fruits of your labor.   You become the farmer who takes the virgin land, clears the weeds, ploughs the soil, fertilizes and seeds it. Imagine the glee in your eyes as you see the fruits of your handiwork blossom in front of your eyes.        
  • You cannot live in the future if you want to be happy. The future with its uncertainties give you the creeps. The magic for living a healthy happy life is to live one day at a time. Even a day is too long. One moment at a time is better. Because, if you are able to provide for this moment, the next moment will take care of itself. However if you let your moments slip away empty, you come to the end of the day with nothing to show for it. Many such empty moments let go, can impact your happiness negatively.
  • Make it a choice to be happy everyday.  This way, you can look at the brighter side of things as you're going to be challenged everyday. When you're prepared to face your world, everything comes to your aid to help you go through the day to give you a smile at the end of your day. This is a recipe for your mind and body health.

"The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts: therefore, guard accordingly, and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue and reasonable nature."
Marcus Aurelius
