The Only Happy Resources You Will Ever Need

We all want to be happy! Duh!!!!!

The real monkey wrench is most folks are not. Happy is some now-and-again thing. Happy is a choice we get to make every waking moment of life. Happy, or sad it’s our decision.

A choice to be happy, yes I can hear so many screaming “I want to be happy you as@ but I can’t” because of this or that. YES, dear friends, you can make a choice to be happy in the middle of adversity! You only need some tools to draw from.

self help, happy, freedom

With a bit of reconditioning ourselves, we can learn to smile in the midst of adversity. No, I am not saying you should say “Oh boy I just lost my relationship to a cheating so-and-so.” What I am suggesting is the response could be something more “thank God this person is out of my life to make room for someone who is right for me.”

How we internalize our pain will determine if we live depressed or we live with a free heart. Easier said than done you say? Not if you recondition yourself for happiness. How you say?

Let’s see, this is in no particular order:

  1. Meditate daily. Learn to meditate to quiet your mind. Your practice will help you find inner peace. Armed with inner peace life’s trials and tribulations will roll off your back.
  2. A spiritual connection with your God, higher power, or whom you call God.
  3. Faith, unwavering faith that no matter how hard you get kicked in the gut. Standing up facing adversity with a power you find when you stay in faith. Knowing in your heart that even if you’re at the brink of destruction, God’s hand will reach in and pull you out. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”– Hebrews 11:1
  4. Gratitude is the cornerstone of life. If you cannot find appreciation, you need a spiritual cleanse. We all can find recognition. If your children woke up this morning healthy, imagine the parents who’s children are fighting for their lives today. If you drove to work, imagine having to ride the bus today in the cold. See my point we all have something to be grateful for! Always!!!
  5. Prayer, make it a part of every day. First, don’t beg “please God just get me through this.” God knows what you need, go to him confess what you need to confess to him. Repent of your sins. Then thank him for the favor he shows in your life. “Thank you, God, for my healing favor” “Thank you God for my financial favor” ” Thank you God for my beautiful relationships.” Talk to God as you would a friend!
  6. Make time for you. This needs to be in the form of a walk outdoors. Get to a park, hiking trail, your neighborhood, just find a place that you can get outside. Why? Walking helps you relieve tension. Further, you can enjoy some fresh air, look around you and experience nature. Get outside yourself, if only for a moment!

These are six things that if you immerse your life into the practice of, you can find happiness. When you learn to relax, let go physically with Yoga, walking, let go emotionally via meditation, prayer, then you can draw happiness at will.

Let go of the past. If you’re hanging onto the past, let that shi^ go! The rear-view mirror gives you a focused view backward. What that means to you, a constant look at the garbage that you need to leave at the dump. There is a reason the front window is big and the rear window is small. What’s ahead of you is FAR more important than what’s behind you!

No matter what your state-of-mind is today. Start! Begin the process of training your noodle to embrace happy. All it takes is retraining our mind to embrace happily. Start right now by throwing your shoulders back, putting a smile on your face and say “today is my day!” Congratulations you took the first step, KEEP GOING!!!

Does Your Life seem like a Shattered Glass?

Does your life seem shattered like a piece of glass? So many broken pieces it just seems hopeless to even try and clean it up.

Good news is that our shattered lives can be cleaned up just like a shattered piece of glass. Once you begin to clean up the glass (your life) keep in mind that glass is hard to clean up. Sometimes you will step on a sliver that was left behind.

self help, happy, joy

You pick up the sliver and throw it away. It may have cut your foot, felt like a setback. It too is temporary. The good news is the clean up is complete. It may have taken time to clean up the mess, but finally, it gets done.

So what can help with the clean up:

  • Acceptance that the glass is broken and YOU are going to be okay!
  • Let God know you’re ready to see what he has in store for you going forward.
  • Organize your day to allow for meditation, positive thought.
  • Begin to fill your mind with positive thoughts, read good books, watch real videos.
  • Yoga is a fantastic way to connect with yourself. Find a fun Yoga class. If you cannot afford a Yoga class many hospitals, YWCA or community centers offer free or low fee classes.
  • Keep active. Walk, workout, visit the park, take your pets out, keep busy as much as possible. Activity keeps your mind somewhere else besides in the past. Dwelling on the broken glass just prolongs positive progress.

If you need to seek professional help, then don’t walk run towards the help you need.

Desire in your Life

Desire

“The starting point of all achievement is desire”. Napoleon Hill

The sad thing about desire very few have it or understand it’s real meaning. Most people say that have a desire to do this or that but in reality, they’re not willing to dig in to achieve it. That’s the real difference between desire and wish. You can wish to do something those with desire actually do it!

self help, success, freedom

Desire is a passion you must fill your being with. It’s not something you learn it’s something you have. If you don’t feel it in your soul then maybe you need to rethink what it is you’re doing.

Desire:

  • Should fill your soul
  • Should get you up in the morning
  • Should be unwavering
  • Should be without fear
  • Should drive your every waking moment

What do you desire?

  • Peace & Contentment
  • Security
  • Financial Success
  • Relationship Success
  • Family Success

Then what are you doing? If you aren’t up every day with a sense of desire to achieve life on your terms, then really what are you doing? Lots to think about is it not?

Do not confuse desire with a wish. “I want success” is a wish, a desire drives you to do something about it.

This book will touch a lot on it takes work to achieve anything you truly want. It does just not come to you, the success that is. Anyone that has been married for over a decade will tell you a good marriage takes work.

We will use this statement throughout the book:

If money and time are not the roadblocks in our way, what do you want?

To find our true desire, you must have a passion for what it is you want to do. So if no roadblocks existed what would you be doing in your life?

STOP HERE

What I would like for you to do, is to do a few things to define what you would like to be successful at and then we will find our desire. We’re going to find one thing that we can do NOW to find success in one part or all of our life. Change is eminent in this exercise!

  1. Find a place where you can feel inspired. Park, pond, river, mountain, backyard, wherever you find peace and solitude. Clear out your head and identify what you would like to do. What will bring success to you?
  2. Have a notepad and pen. Write your thoughts out. Again don’t sabotage it with I will “never be able to afford this”, “I am not smart enough”, blah, blah, blah…
  3. Take as much time as you need. Don’t procrastinate, if you need a day to work this out take it but don’t get off task!!! Now go.

Welcome back!

For most of us, this is a hard task. We’re so used to dismissing dreams it’s hard to imagine achieving one. So nice job completing this task!

So you have your WHAT, that thing that defines success for you. This is the one thing where you should begin to feel desire.

The dictionary defines desire as
Along for, hope for. Noun

You should feel this in your very core.

Okay, so we have a lot more to cover. Most of you are saying now what?
