Happiness - 3 Effective Ways To Find Happiness!

Feb 26, 2008
When was the last time you were really and truly happy? Can't remember such a time? Or is it that you never ever felt that way in your entire life?

It is a commonly known fact that a lot of people across the world are unhappy. In fact a majority of people these days is unhappy. If we start penning down the reasons for unhappiness in the world, even all the papers one can find in this world will fall short.

People do not find true happiness, nor do they swell with happiness because they always stay in the grip of the delusions they harbor about happiness. They keep enlisting the things that they think might lead them to absolute happiness and spend time and money only to realize much later that it has finally led them nowhere.

Some of the common delusions that people relate to happiness are:

1. You can be happy when you are with someone.

Some people make a special person or a special friend the center of their lives. And when these special people leave or go away, you start feeling anchorless and unhappy.

What we need to realize is that happiness is not something that can be found outside. One does not need to be dependent on others for their happiness. Happiness is found inside a person. If that person, on whom you are basing your happiness, dies or goes away, your happiness too will die and run away with them.

You can swell with happiness with anyone at anytime of the day, any day. You just need to be content with what you have, and also believe in your capability and your ability to become happy without anyone else's help.

2. You need to be lucky in order to be happy.

You will find many people around you who are very fortunate. However, we often forget that your luck can run out any time and when one's luck runs out, even one's followers desert one. So if you depend on your luck in such a situation, you would be distraught.

Luck is momentary but happiness can be brought alive from within you, whenever you want. You only need to be appreciative of all that you have. This appreciation and gratitude does not come naturally when you are suffering, so you might need to train yourself.

The road of life is bumpy and has its share of potholes. So one should not expect a smooth highway at all times and must be prepared for the time when your good fortune deserts you. Despite all hardships, one must continue having a positive attitude.

3. Having lots of money can lead us to happiness.

Money equals happiness. This equation is the greatest delusion most people have about the concept of happiness. Everyone wants money as they think that money is the only thing that can make them happy. So these days you find many people working themselves into an early grave.

But the richest of the rich will vouch for the fact that money cannot buy happiness. In fact since you start depending on money so much, the more money you have, the more problems you will face.

Once all your money is pent, it is foolish to think that people around you will behave with you in the same manner. This will ultimately make you feel depressed and unhappy.

Happiness is inside us. We can bring forth this happiness by polishing our inner self and showing this change and our happiness to everyone.
