Happiness is a very simple concept, but it is very difficult for anyone to realize how to obtain it. Almost everyone, hope to achieve happiness in their lifetime, yet not everyone is able to obtain it. It is the difference of vision to see the world through segregated happy people with the unhappy people. If you want to be happy, you should make an effort to realize how to create happiness in every stage of your life.
Happiness is a state of mind that you can choose to have or not. You cannot have control over the situation in life altogether, but you can have the control over on your reaction. Always keep in mind that happiness depends on your inner strength and not from outside situations. That is why it is your choice that makes you stay happy in life.
Life is full of ups and downs. However, it is the approach of a person that decides the achievement of person in their life. If you handle the situations in life with positive attitude, you would most probably get the favourable outcome in every situation, but at the same time if your mind is full of negativity, you would most probably destroy the chances of making your life better. Always keep in mind that while going through the trials and tribulations of life, you can either remain happy by being positive or unhappy by your negative thinking.
As a human being we all are unique in our own way; no two people can be exactly the same and the biggest challenges we all face in life is our willingness to accept people for who they truly are. Your expectations are not going to change other people to behave and act in a certain way. You do not even have the full control over the situations, how they would unfold. That is why your expectations will only make you feel disappointment once it would not materialize. The best way to avoid expectations and be happy in life is to face the situations and make connections with others with free mind without the burden of any kind of expectations.
Most of the people tend to identify themselves with external objects around them and that in turn makes their happiness depended on external factors. Externally derived happiness such as a new mobile phone, car, promotion, love, respect and of the same can make you happy for a certain period of time but they do not have the ability to make you happy forever. The happiness derived from external objects is not permanent in nature. Thus, make your happiness dependent on your inner soul to make it last forever.
It is not wise to make your happiness conditional. If you delay your happiness in order to realize some fixed goals or acquire certain objects, you would most probably make your life unhappy because the desire to set bigger goals and acquire some other objects will always dominate your mind. You should always improve your life in every sphere but being content with whatever material things, money, position and relationship you have in the most crucial. If you want to be happy in life, make sure to be grateful for whatever you have and never ever try to make your happiness conditional.
