It's really true, our thoughts and words are important to our happiness. So, how can we strive to be happier? Check out these ideas!
THINGS HAPPY PEOPLE SAY EVERY DAY
“Today is going to be a great day.”
A good life begins right now with a choice. It’s going to be fun, finger-snapping kind of day if you want it to be. Choose wisely and indulge in the goodness.
“I’m looking forward to it.”
William James once said, “Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action.” Everything you do is only as big as you are, and you grow by taking action and working hard. But even more importantly, remember that hard work is only ‘hard to do’ only when it has no meaning to you. Find work that means something to you, or connect your work to a goal that has meaning, and then persist at it. Read The Success Principles.
“I’ll give it another try.”
Forget failure, or any other outcome whatsoever. If you try something -- to improve yourself, to eliminate debt, to lose weight, to make a relationship work, to make the world a better place, etc. -- you have already achieved something brilliant regardless of the end result. Trying is always enough. If things don’t work out the way you had hoped, hold your head up and be proud that you gave it your best shot. Then try again.
Life is a choir made up of many voices, including your own. Join in and sing your part. Let the harmony ring. It may sound silly to you now, but sometimes all you need in life is for someone to sing beside you.
Gratitude leads to greatness. It can literally turn what we have into more than enough, jobs into joy, chaos into order, uncertainty into clarity, and bring peace to an otherwise chaotic day.
How you respond to life’s little tragedies is what shapes your character. Crap happens sometimes, you’ve got to deal with it and move on. Don’t hide from it. When the crap hits the fan, as it sometimes will, stop and say it out loud: “I’m OK.”
