What is the Secret to Happiness?
Whenever we ask someone would you like to be Happier or or more Sad… the answer comes back 100% of the time the same. EVERYONE wants to be happier. So why is it then that so many people are stuck in a vortex of misery? Yes, there are extreme circumstances that cannot be overlooked or discarded but for the most part, The Secret to Happiness is a learned decision. Stay with me on this! The Secret to Happiness comes from choosing to be happy with whatever you do, strengthening your closest relationships and taking care of yourself physically, financially and emotionally.
“It’s a natural effect: You are open and kind to others, and without even noticing, you are happy.”
“If you’re only preoccupied with yourself, even though you’re trying to be happy, you turn your back to happiness and you make yourself miserable. Either you get a win-win situation or a lose-lose situation.” **
Choose to be happy with whatever you do!
“Choose to be happy” may seem like it over simplifies the issue, however, here are some figures from a recent study that may shine a light on The Secret to Happiness.
Of all the people in the study, those of which classified themselves as “Extremely Happy” are defined below.
93% of those extremely happy said they are in excellent or very good health
78% of those extremely happy said they exercise at least three times per week
77% of those extremely happy said the state of their relationship was either the “greatest” of “very good”
75% of those extremely happy give a top box rating to the importance of success in their intimate relationships
67% of those extremely happy said the happiest period of their lives is now.
62% have not and do not expect to hit a mid-life crisis.
49% of those extremely happy said they are already pursuing their dreams.
Implications for you as an individual
Choose happiness in whatever you do.
Strengthen your closest relationships.
Take care of yourself physically, financially and emotionally.
This year’s survey suggests The Secret to Happiness is simply based on your decision to CHOOSE to be happy with whatever you do, strengthen your closest relationships and take care of yourself physically, financially and emotionally.
