4 Tips That'll Make You Happy Right Now

Why aren't you happy right now?

Is it because you're waiting for something to change? Are you going to feel unfulfilled until certain things in your life happen?

Guess what? Even if everything falls into place the way you wanted it to, you still may not be happy!

That's because people tend to view the world with a "bigger and better" mindset. As soon as something good happens, they focus on the even better thing that could happen next. They don't allow themselves to appreciate what just happened. As a result, they never feel truly content.

So, how do you escape the clutches of this mindset?

You have to decide to be happy!

That's right. Being happy is a conscious choice. Luckily, though, it's not a hard choice to make. Here are 4 tips to help you do it:

1. Smell the roses.

Yes, life is hectic, but if you spend all your time feeling rushed and stressed, you'll never be happy. You've got to give yourself a little bit of time each day to relax, dream, and appreciate the small things. Listen to that song you love, take a walk and enjoy the sunset, or read a little bit of that book you've been dying to check out. That way, you'll spend at least a portion of your day enjoying your life exactly as it is right now.

2. Be grateful.

If you're truly grateful for the good things you have in life, you automatically switch your mindset from "don't" to "do". In other words, you'll be able to focus on all the great things you do have without worrying about chasing the stuff you don't have.

3. Enjoy the journey.

Choosing to be happy right now doesn't mean letting go of all your goals. You can still chase your dreams; just don't focus solely on achieving them. Instead, enjoy the journey you take to get to them. After all, achieving big goals means accomplishing a bunch of little goals along the way. If you allow yourself to be joyful about each hurdle you cross, you'll be happy right now AND when you finally achieve your big goal!

4. Don't dwell on the negative.

No matter how hard you work to be happy, there are going to be things that pop up from time to time that make you unhappy. Don't allow them to take up any more of your attention than they require. The faster you move on from them, the happier you'll be!

In his book How to Get What You Want, Wallace D. Wattles wrote:

"Getting what you want is success..."

Well, I've discovered over the years the same can be said of happiness. Getting what you want is happiness. The key word there is "getting". In other words, the happiness, just as the success, is in the getting, not the having.

So, if you're not happy, my best advice to you right now is get actively involved in the pursuit of something that's important and meaningful to you, and I think you'll find, as I have, your happiness quotient (the percent of time you're happy) will skyrocket!

Vital to that end is being crystal clear about what you want, and that necessitates a goal or, as I prefer to call it, a vision of what you want. If you need some help in that regard, my Wallace D. Wattles Quick Start Guide will help you. Chapters 6, 7, and 8 of it are devoted to just that. Click or tap the link below to get your copy today.

Is Positive Thinking the Secret to Being Happy?

Happiness is contagious.

That's not some feel-good hogwash statement that doesn't have any real substance behind it. After all, what do you do when a stranger smiles at you on the street? You smile back, don't you? For that brief moment, you're happy!

So, just imagine how great you'd feel if you could train your brain to give you that feel-good moment all the time!

It's not as hard as you might think. In fact, many experts tout the benefits of something called "Smile Therapy". All you have to do is get out of bed in the morning and form the biggest, most sincere grin that you can. After a few seconds, relax, and then smile again. Research proves that doing this a few times each day is a great way to "trick" you brain into thinking more positively. After all, if everything was bad, you wouldn't be smiling, right?!

You can take this "brain trickery" a lot further though. It's actually a proven fact that positive thinking can help relieve anxiety. That's because anxiety sufferers usually feel like their lives have spun out of control. So, by making positive thoughts the dominant "voice" in your head, you can turn the tables on all of that negativity.

Sounds like a lot of work, right?

It doesn't have to be!

All you have to do is incorporate a few simple changes into your life. For example, focus on saying "I can", instead of "I can't". Look for solutions, instead of dwelling on problems. For example, if you're always late to work, set your alarm clock a little bit earlier. It's that easy! As soon as you feel like you have control over things, you'll feel better.

Want to make sure you're always up for some positive thinking?

Start by taking care of yourself. Being tired, hungry, or thirsty always makes things seem worse than they really are. Aside from your physical needs, give yourself one "perk" every day. For example, take a soothing bubble bath, make time for your favorite TV show no matter what, or treat yourself to your favorite dessert. These may all seem like little things, but they're exactly what you need to stay positive!

One thing you must do is surround yourself with positive people! After all, not only is happiness contagious but so is negativity! The last thing you want is that one down-in-the-dumps friend dragging you down too.
