12 Golden Rules To Achieve Happiness

Jun 12, 2008
Positive and constructive thoughts will achieve anything you put your mind to do. Believe it or not - YOU are in control.

Can you really consider your happy? The reply is a resounding "Yes".

Here are some ways in which optimistic and constructive thoughts can help you transform your life.

Like produces like. If you think positive thoughts; these thoughts will reflect in the end result. We can either complain and grumble over our circumstance or alter it.

What are you going to choose;negativity or enthusiasm? President Lincoln said "Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be." Again it is a choose you need to make. What are you going to do? It is hard and tricky to think happiness and contentment when society is full of hostility and violent behaviour. I believe it can be done!

We cannot change others but can only change ourselves. Are you going to be that one person with that one idea, with that one positive thought that can change the society in which we live in today.

How, then, can we make ourselves happy? Let us be the one to remind others that there is integrity and righteousness in the world.

1. Look out for positive people to relate to and connect with
2. WE have access to brilliant books, music and movies. Make yourself available to these
3. Decide one thing that is important to you. Chase after it.
4. Show thoughtfulness, appreciation and value towards others.
5. Make it a goal to live today as if it is the last.
6. Let us be that constructive and affirmative force wherever and whenever we can.
7. Use visualization methods to view the positive aspects of your life.
8. Guard your mouth and speak in an encouraging tone.
9. Yoga and exercise will go a long away towards a positive attitude.
10. Let us be expectant but let that be coupled with a positive approach.
11. Walk in tranquility, peace and harmony.
12. Don't beat yourself over the head; you are your own best friend. Speak nicely to yourself.

Here are some quotes on unhappiness which illustrates how destructive it can be in our lives

If you deliberately plan on being less than you are capable of being, then I warn you that you'll be unhappy for the rest of your life. -- Abraham H. Maslow

Unhappiness is not knowing what we want, and killing ourselves to get it. -- Don Herold

I am more and more convinced that our happiness or our unhappiness depends far more on the way we meet the events of life than on the nature of those events themselves. -- Karl Wilhelm von Humboldt

All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you.

The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain your unhappiness or frustration.

You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something by blaming him, but you won't succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy. -- Wayne Dyer

Happiness is not a hereditary trait we are born with. It is implanted in us by our parents and those we love. It is up to us, then, to observe it, partake in it, and construct our lives around it. Think happy, and you will be happy.
