It's active. It's something we each have to choose to implement in our lives each and every day. The good news? We're in control of our own happiness. The better news? We've found eight traits, that when practiced regularly enable happiness in our lives and in the lives of those around us.
I call these eight traits The Eight Pillars of Happiness. The best part about learning and practicing these eight pillars is that they can and will literally change your world.
You must be confident in your self worth. You must accept and appreciate the amazingness of humanity to accept and live the amazingness of you.
Happiness doesn't mean everything is always rose-colored and wonderful, but it appreciates the goodness in every situation. Every experience makes you, you. Sometimes to find the good, we have to be the good.
Understand how your joy, your story and your motivations can work together to help you truly live out your purpose. Let what motivates you drive your actions. Live it. Love it.
Feelings are our body's way of communicating with us. We need to practice harnessing our feelings for positive outcomes instead of negative. We need to better understand our triggers so that we can better appreciate our responses.
Happiness is requires owning your story and living it each and every day. Everything that you've lived through has gotten you to this moment, right here right now. Your story is your superpower.
We are all in this together. We grow and thrive and succeed together. My success is connected to yours and vice versa. We are connected to all living things. That is beautiful and amazing and something we need to put into action.
Appreciate the good and your awareness of good grows. Look around at the abundance that surrounds you. All of it is yours to appreciate and enjoy.
The world is for exploring and learning and growing and loving. We are the only living beings capable of the type of exploration that leads to happiness. We evolve as humans when we practice staying curious about the world around us and our place in it.
