The only thing that is constant in life is change. Everything around us is changing. But whether we see it or not, whether we feel it or not, we are changing everyday. We need to change if we are to grow in life.

You can change if you want to. You can do it if it is important to you. People don’t change because change is not pretty. Change is uncomfortable. Change is scary. Change makes people nervous. They are scared of the uncertainty, or the newness that comes with change.

If you embrace change, change will embrace you. You cannot grow without embracing change. Don’t fight change, embrace change. A successful change will take you to the next level. A successful change will get you that promotion you have been waiting for. But if you resent it, if you fight it, if you resist it, you are hurting yourself. You will remain in your comfort zone. Remember, comfort zone is just comfort zone. It offers nothing new. It offers no growth. It makes you comfortable.

You are not going to get better by chance, but by change. You can change your life by changing your thinking. You can change your life by changing the way you view change. You cannot change your life by fighting change, but by embracing change. Jim Rohn said, “Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.” If you change the way you think, you can change your life. You are the only one who can do it. No one has the power to change your life, but you. No one has the power to make your life better, but you.

You can change your life, you can make your life better, if you want to. Change it by changing your thinking.

4 Ways To Create Your Own Happiness

We all want to be happy. Happiness is not what you search for, it is what you give. If you want to be happy, make people happy. Happiness is like a butterfly. You can’t chase happiness. You cannot run past happiness. It is always in front of you. If you run after happiness, you will never be happy.

You can be a happy person if you want to be happy. Happiness is a choice. Make it today. Be happy today. Create your happiness today, not tomorrow, not next week, not next year. The great Albert Einstein said, “If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.”

Here are four steps you can follow to create your own happiness:

Be yourself. This is the best gift you can give yourself. You are who you are. You cannot be anyone, and no one can be like you. We all have our strengths and weaknesses. Be yourself. Don’t accept anything but the best for yourself. Abraham Maslow said, “If you plan of being anything less than you are capable of being, you will probably be unhappy all the days of your life.” If you want to be happy, don’t accept anything that will make you unhappy for the rest of your life. Go for things that will bring out the happiness in you. And you will be happy.

Accept yourself. If you want to be happy, you MUST first accept yourself. You can only find happiness if you accept yourself- your strengths, your weaknesses, your gifts and your talents. You cannot find happiness if you are not in peace with your inner self. You cannot be unhappy inside and be happy outside. George Orwell said, “Happiness can exist only in acceptance.” Accept yourself, and you will be happy.

Be a positive thinker. When you think in a positive way, you are attracting positive energy to yourself. You are attracting positive things into your life. It helps you to see things in positive ways. It helps you to see light where others see darkness. Happiness is the way you think about yourself and your situation. Marcus Aurelius said, “Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is within yourself, in your way of thinking.” if you want to attract negative things to yourself, think in negative ways. If you want to attract positive things to yourself, think in positive ways. If you want to be happy, really happy, change the way you think- from negative to positive.

Value yourself. if you want to be happy, learn to respect yourself, regardless of where you are, where you live, and where you work. Happiness depends on nothing, but you. Only you can make yourself happy. No one can do that for you. As Ayn Rand put it, “Learn to value yourself, which means: to fight for your happiness.” You cannot be happy if you don’t value yourself. You need to value yourself if you are to live a happy life.

Happiness is personal. If you want to be happy, focus on the things that can help you find happiness. Don’t waste your time on things that will steal your happiness away. If you do that, you will be a happy person.
