8 Ways You Can Simplify The Pursuit Of Happiness
Simplify Your Pursuit Of Happiness
Today, I want to share Marc and Angel’s “8 Ways to Simplify the Pursuit of Happiness”
There are specific disciplines and ways of seeing the world that you have to understand before you can awaken to a simpler, happier life.
Sometimes we make life more complicated than it is.
We attach our happiness to achievement and then look for it in all the wrong ways and in all the wrong places.
Simplifying your pursuit of happiness is not seeing how little you can get by with – that’s poverty – but how efficiently you can put first things first, and use your time accordingly to pursue the things that make a difference and mean the most to you.
Here are Marc and Angel’s eight ways to do just that…..
1. Lose yourself in something that moves you.
- To truly flourish in life you have to let go a little, lose yourself in the moment and become fused with other people, experiences, and tasks.
- In other words, long-term happiness isn’t just about conscious achievement; it’s also about the unconscious part of your mind naturally intertwining with the ideas, passions, work, people, songs, and stories that move you.
2. Know what you want and commit to it.
- The words ‘aware’ and ‘commit’ are so powerful.
- It’s amazing what you can do once you’re aware of what you want and you commit to doing it.
- If you can honestly say that you are fully aware of your desires and what they entail, and that you are devoted to doing what it takes, you are already in a high spirited state of mind.
- Being aware and committed means you are informed – alert, knowledgeable, prepared – and you have the mindset to visualize, strategize, focus, and achieve.
3. Guard yourself against dream crushers.
- Stop sharing your dreams with people who try to hold you back, even if they’re the people who are supposed to support you – parents, siblings, friends, etc.
- If you’re passionate about something out in the world that you want to explore – an interest that’s a little different than the norm – something that makes you a bit EXTRA-ordinary, you’ll never get there if you listen to people who keep telling you you’re not extraordinary.
4. Find the right day job.
- Happiness is spending your life in your own way.
- This is especially true when it comes to lifelong work.
- Your day job should be the place where your interests meet the world’s needs.
- When you appreciate what you do for a living, happiness and success tag along.
5. Focus on the way you want to feel.
- You will begin to become happier and more successful the minute you decide to be.
- Knowing how you actually want to feel is the most potent form of clarity that you can have.
- Your thoughts create your reality: A positive context leads to positive actions, thoughts, and feelings, which gradually lead to positive results.
- This mindset is the magic ingredient that helps you persevere in the face of challenges, setbacks, pain, and even personal injury.
6. Maintain a flexible, constructive perspective.
- Forget all the reasons it won’t work and figure out the one good reason it will.
- It’s possible that you won’t get the exact results you had anticipated, but that’s OK – it’s still progress as long as you learn from the results you do get.
- Your choice of perspective has the power to build or demolish.
7. Drop the comparisons.
- Sometimes the hardest part of the journey is simply understanding that you’re OK just the way you are.
- Don’t let the silly little dramas and dilemmas of each day get you down.
- Forget about where others are in their lives.
- You aren’t competing against them; you are supposed to be right where you are.
- Every life is unique.
- Let today be the day you look at the positive aspects of this journey that is uniquely yours.
8. Help others smile.
- In your pursuit of happiness – as unique as it may be to your own specific needs – don’t forget that you’re a member of a world that is far greater than yourself.
- There are simple things you can do daily to lift the human spirits around you – things that are effortless and free and related to your pursuit.
- And best of all, happiness begets happiness; when you do these things to help others, you don’t just lift their spirits, you lift your own as well.
