Happiness Is An Inside Job

I would like to share with you why happiness is an inside job. Nobody wants to suffer. We all desire to be happy and are constantly striving to pursue it, but in the process of cultivating this emotional state, sometimes we forget to strengthen our inner selves.

We have been conditioned to believe that happiness is derived from people, events, or outcomes. All the ‘things’ which give us pleasure are simply mirrors, reflecting back to us idealized notions of who we think we might be, rather than who we truly are.

If you believe that your happiness is connected to things outside of yourself, you will never experience true fulfillment in life. Chasing happiness only leads to pain and suffering.

You already have everything that you need in order to be happy and live an extraordinary life. It resides within you. In the words of Democritus, “Happiness resides not in possessions and not in gold. Happiness dwells in the soul.” What does happiness mean to you?

Happiness is a state of mind; if you want to live a happy life, you need to train your brain for happiness every day.

Shawn Achor, the best-selling author of, The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work says that, “If you can raise somebody's level of positivity in the present, then their brain experiences what we call a happiness advantage.”

Happiness isn’t conditional, but rather it is a choice. In every moment, you have the power of determine whether you will view events in your life from a positive or negative lens. This is why happiness is an inside job.

When we look to the future for happiness it takes us away from the present, which is where happiness resides. If you want to experience more happiness, you need to be grateful for the extraordinary things that already exist in your life.

Gratitude is one of the most important rituals that I practice in my daily life. I believe that it is through the process of gratitude that we experience the purest form of joy. In doing so, we are able to cultivate a mindset that focuses on the positive.

Self-love is the key to happiness. The best way to honour yourself is by listening to what it needs. This is where the power of a morning ritual comes into play.  It is one of the secrets to success of some of the happiest people in the world.

Research shows that your mood in the morning affects your emotional state for the rest of the day. What makes you happy first thing in the morning? Commit to doing it because you deserve the love that you so freely give to others.

When will you choose to be happy? You can be happy right now! In doing so, you will set yourself up for success in all areas of your life.

Denis Waitley said it best, “Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is a spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.” Don’t wait for the perfect moment to experience fulfillment and joy. YOU have the power to look for the good in life, despite what's going on around you.
