4 Simple Steps to Being as Happy As You Want to Be

making a listThere are 4 little steps that that will increase your happiness level immensely the minute you take action on them.

  1. Do you know what makes you happy? Of course you do! Think back to times when you were really happy. What were you doing? Where were you? Who were you with? You probably don’t even need to think too hard because you know off the top of your head what makes you happy. MAKE A LIST OF THOSE THINGS RIGHT NOW.
  1. Next, think hard about the things you do everyday from morning to night. Most people have a habit of doing the same thing day after day. As you mentally go through your average day MAKE A LIST OF THOSE THINGS THAT YOU NORMALLY DO EACH DAY.
  1. Now, it’s time to compare the two lists. How many things on your ‘happy list’ do you enjoy everyday? Is your day filled with happy moments or is it barely sprinkled with only a few little happy events? COUNT THE THINGS ON YOUR HAPPY LIST AND then COUNT HOW MANY OF THOSE SHOW UP ON YOUR LIST OF THINGS YOU DO EVERYDAY. How are you doing?  
  1. Here’s the biggie! You know what to do. IT’S TIME FOR YOU MOVE SOME THINGS OFF YOUR LIST #2 (WHAT YOU DO DAILY) TO YOUR LIST #1 (YOUR HAPPY LIST). Who is in charge of your life? Who plans your schedule? Who decides what your priorities are? Who makes your ‘to do’ lists? Who can make a change? YOU can, of course. If you don’t have the ability to run your own life, then you need to make even a bigger change than moving happy things into your day. You need to be the master of your own life. If you aren’t, stop this minute letting someone else run your life. When you allow someone else to run your life, you are a victim and victims are never happy. You must be responsible for your own life – and when you give someone else that responsibility, you are not being responsible! Fix that now – and then take action on the 4 steps to bring more happiness into your life. Happy Days ahead!
