How can I be happy?
It's the daddy of all questions isn't it? How can I be a happier person? Lots of people ask 'How can I find happiness?' as if it's hiding somewhere. Do you think that true happiness can be found outside yourself? Maybe you've been looking for a person, a thing, or a situation, that will be the key to happiness. But life doesn't magically become happier because of what we have.
You can have loads of money, a great family, a fab job, and you can still be unhappy. And you can have very little, by others' standards, and still be blissfully happy. The truth is that happiness is something we make for ourselves. Happiness is a habit. It's a way of thinking and behaving that makes you feel good.
Check out my two videos on how to be happy. The first video will teach you what long-term happiness is, as opposed to the short-term happiness that so many of us seem to hopelessly grasp onto. And the second will show you how to have a happy attitude, and the habits that will truly make you happy.
If this has helped you, please share it, so that others in your life can be happy too!
