4 Everyday Steps to Happiness

Each day of our lives is precious.
I really like this idea, and repeat it as a mantra each morning and throughout the day.
Each day is an opportunity to embrace the gift of life.

Unfortunately, many of us still struggle and sacrifice their joy for work, guilt, the approval from other people. It is not the right approach to life.

Do something you love every day, be passionate and enthusiast, embrace positive energy!

Everyone’s path is different, from practical angles, but there are some secrets that consistently help to make everyone’s days happier and truly fulfilled.

Try these 4 suggestions:

1. Follow your deepest dream.
Maslow wrote that our fulfillment comes from the realization of our talent. A life without passion and purpose is meaningless. Listen to your inner voice, rediscover your talents and potentials. Once you’ve decided what are your passion and your purpose, trust your decision and follow your flow. If you don’t have passion, every day will be spent without purpose, following other people demands.
With passion and decision, we instinctively drive every action toward happiness and success.
Love yourself and do what your inner voice tells you to do.

2. Stop over-thinking your life.
Your mind can be the worst of your enemies. Find peace in the present moment. Don’t be obsessed about past events and worried about future. Become a person of action in the present! Accept uncertainty, and realize that you cannot have control over everything. Do not get lost in fear and depression. Set short time decisions. Write down your worries on paper.
This helps you rationalize what is worth rationalizing and what it’s not.

3. Take action, beat procrastination.
You find a task unpleasant, you feel insecure of your skills, you are a perfectionist, you are disorganized. Many of us delay things for thousands of reasons. But the longer you delay things, the worse your life. Recognize this habit, and its reasons, and the hard part is over.
There will never be the right moment, so take action and do it now.

4. The joy of appreciative living.
Think about the things that are good and worthy of joy in your life. Once you know them, you can decide whether or not something else is worthy to do. Learn from your happy moments.
Focus on your joys, and find time for each activities or similar. These can be hobbies, or work as well. Do what you like to do. This is the path to happiness.
