Happiness 101

2 Mar

Everyone wants a happy life. We want things to go our way, the road ahead to be easy and paved, and everything we work for to come through for us. It’s natural to want things to go well, and oftentimes they do. If we want our lives to be happy, we can try to do what is needed to make that happen, but we aren’t alone here. Our plans can be complicated and interrupted by others around us who may do things that hold us in place or influence us in ways that keep us from moving forward. We may have a relationship with someone who exercises a lot of control over what we do. They may have specific ideas of how our lives should go that conflict with what we really want. If they are important to us, or are very strong and powerful, we may allow them to decide what we’ll do and where we’ll go. We can certainly do anything we like, but if we let someone else drive the train, the chances of ending up where we really want to go are unlikely. Living a life based on someone else’s plans will not bring us true happiness. Our personal happiness is our responsibility. Others cannot provide it for us. Nobody knows us better than we know ourselves and we know what we want, and despite any situation or relationship connection, are always in control of our lives. Others may try to dominate our decisions, and if we let them, decide our next steps. But we are the only ones who know exactly what we want, and can step forward on our own road at any time. The only person who can truly keep us from achieving our personal goals, is us. When we’re ready, we can step forward and move toward the destinations we desire most. We deserve complete and fulfilling happiness, and it’s always there for us when we’re ready to claim it. Every dream is possible, and we can make them ours.

There are a lot of very smart, highly educated people in the world. They know a lot about many things and may be very confident in their advice and personal suggestions. While they may know many things about the world and how it works, nobody can possibly know more about us than we know about ourselves. We already know what we want to do and where we want to go. If we are uncertain, we can ask for advice but in the end the decisions we make are up to us. We can decide how we’ll proceed and what we’ll accomplish and reach any goal we desire.

We may face a time when everything goes wrong, and nothing is working for us. The situation we’re in may make us miserable, and we may struggle to find the way forward. Hard times will certainly come to us all, but nothing stays the same forever. Happiness will never be unattainable indefinitely. We can manage any difficult situation, and when things change, step forward toward the goals we’re seeking. Every possibility will still be there for us and we can achieve any success we desire.

Today if you’re not happy with where you are and want a change, look at all the options available. You know what you want. Decide on the road that will take you to the destinations you desire most, and step forward. Nothing can keep you from success, and all your dreams are possible. Be confident. There is great happiness ahead and you will reach it.
