The secret to happiness that everyone should know

Secret to HappinessIf you’re reading this blog post, read reader, then perhaps you’ve been searching for the secret to happiness? If you have, you’re not alone. Many search but few find real happiness.

Well, if happiness is what you seek, then allow me to enlighten you.

Money’s not the answer:

When you hear news of someone winning big on a lottery, do you ever think that you’d be so much happier if only you could win big too? You’d be happy, if only you had a lot of money, right?

Certainly having money can make life comfortable. There’s no question about that. And who wouldn’t want to be comfortable?

Having money can allow you to do all sorts of things you couldn’t do otherwise. Live in a nice house; wear the finest clothes; drive a nice car; and travel first class to exotic places.

However, there’s one thing that money cannot do for you. It cannot make you happy. It’s a fact, having a lot of money by itself can never make you happy. There are plenty of very wealthy people who are miserable.

Happiness is a state of mind:

It is a fact, if you weren’t happy without money, then suddenly gaining a substantial amount money will not change the way you feel. If anything, it’s impact on your life will probably make you even less happy.

Happiness is a state of mind. It’s the capacity to appreciate life for what it is and not what you think you’d like it to be. It’s being content with what you have, whatever that is.

Happiness is a positive mental attitude; a willingness to see the good side of every situation, regardless of how bad it might actually be in reality; a determination to enjoy the moment; whilst being comfortable in your own skin.

Work towards creating your own pot of gold, by all means, dear reader, but in doing so never lose sight of what matters most.

The time span of a human life is very short and it all goes by in the blink of an eye.

Yesterday has gone and you may never know tomorrow. The ‘here and now‘ is the only certainty you have.

This moment is your life, so you must find a way to enjoy each and every moment. Get the most out of them all. For as we say where I come from, you’ll be a long time dead.

The secret to happiness:

Enjoy the simple, inexpensive pleasures like having a laugh or a coffee with a friend. That’s when you’ll be happiest. That’s how memories are made too.

Accept that your life will be full of challenges, which is what makes it all interesting.

And recognise that in having to respond to challenges you are growing as a person. So it makes sense to respond to every challenge with enthusiasm because you can only win, ultimately. Either you’ll succeed or you’ll learn a lesson.

And remember this too; as your life passes, you won’t remember those expensive shoes you bought or the latest gadget, but you will remember the experiences you had with the people who mattered most to you.

Enjoy life for what it is and don’t fret about what it isn’t. The secret to happiness is contentment.

If you can be happy without money then having money will be a bonus.
