CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY

There  will  always  be  a  problem.  There  will  always  be  something  going  wrong.  There  will  never  be  a  single  day  when  “everything  is  OK”.  So  choose  to  be  happy.  Business  is  generally  “unsafe”.  As  some  believe  that—life  is  unfair.  Life  is  unfair  to  those  who  chose  to  focus  on  what  has  gone  wrong  or  what  they  did  wrong.  This  does  not  suggest  that  you  should  have  no  sense  of  guilt  or  remorse  when  you  do  wrong.

By  the  same  token  life  is  fair  to  those  who  choose  to  be  happy  amidst  their  challenges.  That  is  not  to  say  you  should  unleash  a  heavy  grin  while  someone  next  to  you  is  going  through  hard  times  just  so  you  can  prove  how  happy  you  are  in  your  life.  NO.  It  simple  means  be  happy  in  your  own  terms.  Be  you  and  focus  on  improving  the  quality  of  your  personality  while  staying  happy  in  the  process.

On  the  off  chance  that  you  invested  half  as  much  energy  figuring  out  how  to  solve  problems  as  you  spend  maintaining  a  strategic  distance  from  them,  you  wouldn’t  have  any  form  of  failure  in  your  life.  When  you  think  it’s  impossible,  reflect  and  rethink  all  your  past  victories  and  accomplishments. 

Prosperity  and  satisfaction  is  the  reward  for  your  capacity  to  stand  consistent  with  your  belief  systems.  Be  consistent  enough  to  be  happy—always.  Dreams,  visions  and  goals  are  the  wellspring  of  all  riches,  but  achievement,  material  increase,  all  awesome  wealth,  creativity  and  accomplishments  are  no  match  to  a  happy  person. 

The  way  to  accomplishment  is  thinking  about  the  “happiness”  factor  and  not  the  “anxiety”  factor.  Smile.  Smile  a  lot.  Especially  when  you  know  yourself  that  smiling  to  you  is  like  bending  an  iron  bar.  So,  smile  a  lot  and  choose  to  be  happy.

How  to  be  happy:

Decide  to  stick  to  your  values.  Stay  focused  on  your  top  priorities.  Simplify  your  vision.  Balance  your  life  while  still  accomplishing  your  professional ,  business  or  career  goals. 

Focus  on  your  mission.  Prioritize  your  purpose.  Establish  detailed  action  steps  to  aid  you  to  achieve  those  goals. 

Achieve  each  and  every  one  of  your  goals.  Center  your  attention  on  opportunities  available  around  you.

Choosing  to  be  happy  means:

Considering  a  wide  range  of  alternatives  to  improve  productivity  and  quality  of  your  life.  Promoting  and  generating  creativity. 

Breaking  fixed  ideas  to  stimulate  your  imagination.  Defining  the  conditions  in  which  happiness  and  creativity  takes  place.

Turn  the  potential  of  creativity  into  the  process  of  happiness  and  creative  performance.  Enhance  your  use  of  intuition  for  happiness  and  reduce  mental  blocks  of  happiness  and  creativity,  such  as  fear  of  failure.

Manage  your  happiness:

If  you  manage  your  happiness,  you  can  manage  your  performance.  Lead  –  set  the  direction  for  your  business.  Work  like  an  expert  –  constantly  develop  necessary  skills  and  apply  them  in  a  proficient  manner.  Be  effective  –  achieve  your  set  objectives.  Be  efficient  –  achieve  value  for  resources  and  money.  Be  modest  –  ensure  proper  use  of  your  resources  and  money  and  lastly  choose  to  be  happy.
