Where can we find happiness? Can we make ourselves happy? Can we buy happiness?

Happiness does not depend on anything. It is free. It is natural. It does not cost you anything. Then why are some people not happy? Some people are not happy because they pay attention to things that will come and go. We think that pleasure will bring us happiness. We are dead wrong.

Most of us are not happy because we are looking at the wrong places for happiness. We ignore the ordinary things. We have fine homes, but we are not happy. We have money in the bank, but we are not happy. We have fine cars, but we are not happy. What is going on? What is happening to us? Where have we messed up? What are we doing wrong?

We think that happiness will come when we have enough material things. We are dead wrong! Happiness is not what we can buy from anywhere. The only place we can find happiness is in our minds. Our happiness does not come from the outside, but from the inside. If you really want to be happy, you must embrace your INNER SELF.

Happy thoughts attract happiness. When you think positively about yourself, your life, your family, your friends, your happiness level will go up. It will make your life better. You will perform better at work. You will attract other happy people into your life. But when you think negatively about yourself, your happiness level will decline. It will go down. It will not make your life better. It will worsen everything. It will zap your energy away.

You make yourself unhappy because of the thoughts that you have about the people or things in your life.”- Dr Wayne W. Dyer

In order to maintain your happiness level, focus on happy things, think happy thoughts, associate yourself with happy people, and don’t hang around negative people. Your happiness is in your own hands, so handle it well.

Where is your happiness?

The Keys To Happiness

“… if a man is happy, it is because he dwells in happy thoughts; if miserable, because he dwells in despondent and debilitating thoughts.”James Allen

Happiness is a mind business. A mind filled with doubts cannot find happiness. A mind filled with negative thoughts cannot attract positive thoughts into it. They cannot coexist.

If you want to be happy, just choose happiness. No one can make you happy, but yourself. Here is how:

Accept yourself. You cannot find happiness if you don’t accept who you are. You cannot separate your self-esteem and your happiness. They are inseparable. Robert Holden writes, “Your level of self-acceptance determines your level of happiness.” If you don’t like yourself, you won’t be happy with yourself.

Welcome happiness into your life. Happy people attract happiness into their lives. If you want to be happy, you must welcome happiness into your own life. Og Mandino said, “I will welcome happiness because it enlarges my heart.” Happiness is your choice to make. Make it today!

Take responsibility for your own happiness. If you want to be happy, do it yourself. It is your choice. As the saying goes, “Life is a do it yourself project.” Do wait for your spouse to make you happy. Make yourself happy, and your happiness will attract other happy people to you. Just do it yourself!

Accept things the way they are. Change what you can change, and let go of what you cannot change. You cannot change nature. Can you? Don’t even try to do it! Instead of trying to change things, why not explore their beauty?

Live your life with an open heart. If you want to attract happiness into your life, do not keep negative thoughts in your mind. Because a negative mind cannot attract happiness. Only a positive mind has the power to attract positive things. An open mind is a creative mind, a happy mind, a productive mind. It is up to you.
