Do you have it clear in your mind? When it comes to mind I want you to ask yourself “why” which takes you to a deeper goal. When you ask yourself the 3rd time “why” you will find by this time almost everybody arrives at the same answer and that is Happiness!
People put all sorts of goals for themselves: family, owning a business, education, adventures etc. but in the end all of them are pursued for one reason and that is for the hope that when they are achieved we will be happier than where we are now.
However, what has been realized with research is that even people that have won the lottery… 1 year later found that they were not happier. The reason for that is happiness is not a result of any of the actions or pursues you are on.
If you achieve your life goal you will not be happier…. yet people spend their entire life seeking it in the wrong approach. Happiness is a state of mind, All you need to do to be happy is just “be happy”.
That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t follow a life goal, but what I am saying is if you just be happy you will find happiness not in the achievement of the goal but at every step along the way. You can even be happy going through a struggle and a hard life stage.
The reason for that is because for example I get bored and discouraged with life if there is nothing challenging me or growing me. I want hardships because going through them each time brings a transformation into my life.
Thus, I want to end this note with a beautiful quote:
“Seeking Happiness is not the way, Happiness is the way!”
Remember, all we need to be happy is just to welcome that state and be excited on where you are in life and in each stage of it. Lastly, if you are at a hard stage and find that it is a struggle to achieve a happy mindset find something that can change your state of mind every time. It can be a song you hear, a video that makes you laugh, or sometimes it could be a child or pet. Go to that place to bring back that state and you will find your life will be filled with “Happiness”!
Be happy and let your soul smile every step of the way!
