Learn to Be Happy in 4 Simple Steps

February 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 155

Happiness is what we all want, isn't it? In the end, being happy is our key goal. But as we go ahead in life, we become more and more aware about things that are not working or mistakes we've made and we keep collecting them in our hearts. Then our minds are taken over by the powers of guilt and depression.

The key to happiness though is a simple 4 step process. When you are happy, you have two options. Follow these steps or simply get hold of something negative and fall in the hands of enmity with yourself and others.

Here is what you should do to be happy. Do it now. You don't have to wait for a time when happiness comes to you. Instead, go and embrace happiness.

1. Accept your mistakes

I've learned that when you accept your mistakes and forgive yourself, you'll be much happier than what you are now. Accept that you made mistakes. They say "If it doesn't allow freedom to make mistakes, it is no freedom." Make mistakes but also forgive yourself.

2. Accepts mistakes of people you care about

This shouldn't be too hard to achieve because when you can accept your own mistakes and you agree that mistakes can happen with anyone, you'll be able to forgive everyone for their mistakes. Basically, when you are unhappy, every act of others feels like a mistake.

It hurts you not because it's their fault, but because you are giving to your too much attention to it. So forgive and forget should be the phrase to be kept in mind.

3. Being is better than having

Probably you want something so urgently and you don't yet have it. We all want something and we all have contrasts in life. The key is to understand that being is better than having. Be the change you want to see in the world. If you want money, come in alignment with the amount of money. You are the only one obstructing your success.

4. Follow your passion

Follow your passion NOW. That means if it was your hobby to paint, stop giving out explanations that you don't have the time right now or you are too worked out for starting your hobby again. Always remember that happiness is about doing things we love and forgetting the regrets, faults and mistakes. Being in Guru's aura is happiness.

Find yourself an ideal in people you adore, a destination you want yourself to reach in the end and the way you want to live. Nothing is more important than your happiness.
