“If your happiness depends on what somebody else does, I guess you do have a problem.”– Richard Bach

Does your happiness depend on other people’s lives? Does your happiness depend on your job? Does your happiness depend on your pocket (money)?

If your happiness depends on those things, you do have a problem. Nothing can make you happy but yourself. No one can make you happy. No one can bring you happiness but yourself. If you really care about your happiness, focus on your purpose in life. Purpose brings happiness.

You can’t buy happiness, but meaningful things can make you happy. If you want to make yourself happy, I mean really happy, you must focus on doing meaningful things. Good things can make you happy, not people. Don’t expect happiness from anyone. No one can make you happy. Only you can make yourself happy. Don’t go around chasing happiness. All you need to do is look within yourself. Happiness is in your mind. If you want to make yourself happy, don’t allow negative thoughts to take charge of your life.

According to Franz Schubert, “You believe happiness to be derived from the place in which once you have been happy, but in truth it is centered in ourselves.” Your happiness is centered in yourself. Your happiness is your choice. You can make yourself happy. You can make yourself happy by changing the relationship you have with yourself. When it comes to happiness, how you see yourself matters. It matters more than anything else. When you change how you see yourself, your life will change. Your personality will change. Your future will change. Above all, your self-esteem will go up.

You can make yourself happy if you have the courage to love yourself. Love is the real happiness. Why? Yes, because if you don’t love yourself, you can’t make yourself happy. Everything starts with love. Love is in charge of our lives. When you are in love with yourself, your life will reflect it. Sigmund Freud famously said, “We must begin to love in order not to fall ill.” So, if you want to make yourself happy, make yourself happy. But don’t expect to be happy every day. It is not going to happen. You must accept what you have. Everything is not going to go your way. You must be happy with what you have, where you are, and move on with your life.

Are you ready to make yourself happy?

‘What You Are, So Is Your World.’

You are the maker of your own world. You make your world by what you do every day, by what you think about everyday, and by how you treat other people every day.

You make your life by one step at a time, by one word at a time, by thought at a time, by one relationship at a time. Where you are today does not happen by accident.

James Allen famously said, “What you are, so is your world.”

We think we can create positive things when we spend our time thinking about negative things. That will not happen. And it cannot happen. If you want to create a positive world, you must think in a positive way.

“No one is stopping you from moving forward in your life. You are stopping yourself from moving forward.”

Your world will not change if you don’t change. Your world will not attract good things to you if you don’t look for good things. You are the maker of your world.

What you do, so is your world.

What you think, so is your action.

You can’t live in the past and expect to enjoy today. If you want to enjoy today, live in today, not yesterday.

Live in today. Because today is an opportunity for you to change your world. We all have screwed up in the past. That is okay. Don’t let that stop you from creating a perfect world for yourself and your family.

“You are not moving fast enough in your life because you are still reliving your past failures.”

You can create a perfect world for yourself if you think about positive and perfect things. If you want a perfect world for yourself, think about perfect things. See yourself as a positive person. Do not focus on what you did wrong yesterday. Focus on what you are doing right now. It does not matter what it is. Just do it. Just create your own world.

You cannot create your perfect world if you are against yourself. If you are against yourself, no one can be for you. You cannot create your perfect world if you are not for yourself. You cannot move forward if you are not for yourself.

If you want people to help you, you must be willing and ready to help yourself. If not, nothing will change.
