Mahatma Gandhi one of the world’s most influential persons said, “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony”.
For the next three weeks, this will be our subject of discussion on a weekly basis and trust me you won’t regret it because there is someone out there who needs this, like right now.
Happiness is a choice and everyone deserves to be happy. Unfortunately, not many people can assure their happy state because of the harsh situation in the country now. People are moving from one level of depressed state to another, suicide rates are on the rise and many fall back on substance abuse as a temporary measure to keep them happy.
You can choose to be different and remain happy, joyful, hopeful and allow positive energy to radiate by practically following these 21 rules of happiness.
Rule # 1- Have a Positive Mindset
Imbibe the attitude of being always positive. Learn to hope for the best and plan for the worst. By doing this you will never be taken off guard by life’s disappointments and you will remain happy.
Rule # 2- Be Determined
There are different kinds of people out there that carry negative vibes. There is the narcissist, the naturally cruel, the killjoys, the haters, the envious, and the sadists. Avoid them and make up your mind to never allow anyone to determine your happy state and- be happy.
Rule #3– Avoid Self-Pity
Self-pity is the very worst kind of emotion. It destroys everything around itself and leaves you feeling powerless. Stop being the victim, stop feeling sorry for yourself – and be happy.
Rule # 4- Discourage Your Discourage
Refuse to be discouraged and always encourage your self even when no one else does and- be happy.
Rule # 5- Happiness is a choice
Happiness is a choice and sadness is also a choice, therefore chose to be happy. Happiness Is Only Ever Now. Most of us spend our time anywhere but in the present. We obsess about the past, or plan for the future. Now is the only time that really exists. Make the decision to be happy – now.
Rule # 6- Stay Busy
Keep your self busy doing what gives you joy. Go on that holiday, learn something new, try out new things that pertain to your interests- and be happy.
Rule #7– Avoid The Distraction of Life’s Tragic Moments
We often get a fresh perspective on life after we lose a family member, or survive an illness. Don’t wait for life to remind you or distract you. Move on and remember your real priorities now- and be happy.
