Secrets of Living a Happy Life

What is Happiness?

Everyone wants to live a happy life and get along with others and achieving this requires that we follow a few simple steps. True joy and happiness are so valuable that it is well worth striving for.

“In judging our progress as individuals we tend to concentrate on external factors such as one’s social position, influence and popularity, wealth and standard of education… But internal factors may be even more crucial in assessing one’s development as a human being. Honesty, sincerity, simplicity, humility, pure generosity, absence of vanity, readiness to serve others – qualities which are within easy reach of every soul – are the foundation of one’s spiritual life”.  Nelson Mandela

Setting a good example means staying out of trouble and being a good influence on others. We are all judged by our behaviour so with high values we are respected. Set a good example and there will be more joy in your life.

What is true is what you decide is true for you. Secrets and lies can destroy the best relationships. Many arguments and fights start because of spiteful lies and cause confusion and unhappiness for all concerned.

When someone is trusted, it means that they are honest and mean no harm and one feels that they are safe to be with. When someone you count on lets you down, that is a betrayal of trust. A trusted person is considered valuable and loved.

People who keep their word are trusted and admired. This would even include keeping a promise you made to yourself. So, don’t allow others to break their word and ensure you set a good example by keeping yours.

Choosing your friends correctly is important, as making the right choices will prevent you getting into unnecessary trouble. Be mindful of people who abuse drugs and alcohol. Too much can be harmful and dangerous, so encourage them to get help if you can.

It is our responsibility to grow and achieve success in life. Having a dream and following that despite all the challenges that will be faced along the way is what winning is all about. Don’t allow others to tell you that you cannot succeed. Keep growing your skills and you can achieve success.
