“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design into the present.”
Happiness always comes when you yourself want it. You can be happy wheneve you want to be. I’m not saying that happiness can come onto your life when you get failed badly. According to Kyrill Poole, when people are asked what they want from life, happiness is usually on the list. I am a firm believer that happiness is not a “place” that one arrives at after achieving one thing or the other. I believe that happiness is a choice, a state of mind, and a way of life. And with that said, I think that there are some requisites that lead to this thing we call happiness. I know it doesn’t happen in the real world. Neither can it happen and nor I want it from you guys. But truly, doing little things at the time when you are not happy (means you are sad or sorrowfull), you can enjoy a good productive, happy life. Lately, I have been studying the behavior of happy people. I have studied different articles and I have also gone through some inspirational books about happy people and the formulae of happiness. After that I have compiled this list of 30 pieces of advice or habits about those people who really enjoy a happy life. Hope you love reading and learning them:
1. Treat other people as you would like to be treated.
If you want to be loved, love others. This is simply tit for tat. This is the world, my dear. You get what you give to this world.
2. Truly listen.
If you are listening to somebody, truly listen to him/her or otherwise dont listen or atleast dont claim to be listening to. It really hurts and you get negative response in return, ultimately making you unhappy.
3. Be assertive.
If you dont want certain things to happen, tell other guys around you. Try to learn to say, ‘No’ when needed. And if you say yes, then do yes.
4. Give the small gifts of kindness.
No financial/materialistic gift can replace the tiny gifts of kindness. If you do kind things, you get back for yourself too. And sometimes if someone doesn’t adore you with kindness, it’s not that you stop it. You are doing so because you want to relax yourself, not because you want kindness as a return. Some people are not generous. Dont expect them to be kind.
5. Dont Mix things up.
Mixing up things and enjoying them all is not good for longer time. Dont confuse your job with your home. Dont mess your job and home with your friends etc.
