3 Simple Steps To Being Happier In Your Life

Popularity 5Viewed 7669 times 2014-1-27 05:04 |System category:Life| nothing, people, around, matter, others

"Don't go where you're tolerated; Don't go where you are agitated; Go where you are celebrated; Go where you are appreciated"

Life is too short to be around people who belittle you or make you feel less than you truly are.

First, their actions, opinions and insinuations have nothing to do with you. It is only a reflection of them no matter how hard they try to transfer it to you. It only affects you when you allow it. Dr. Dyer said, "We don't see others as THEY are. We see others as WE are. Likewise, they don't see YOU as YOU are; they see you as THEY are." These kind of people will trick you with perhaps offering you love and then tearing you down because of their own inferior feelings. Too many, too often, fall for it. Don't let it be you.

Second, identify people in your life that make you feel good about life, happiness, love, the world and most importantly, yourself. Hang out with these people. Spend time with them. Go around them more often. Make them your best friends.

Third, be a life-giver and you'll have plenty of positive life-giving friends. Be an encourager. Be a positive force everyone you go and you'll find that people are attracted to you almost magically. The big Secret of attraction (receiving and getting in life) is, giving. It always has been and always will be. Learn to become comfortable in easily and quickly giving genuine and honest praise to others. Look for and find their good. Read Dale Carnegie's book, "How To Win Friends and Influence People." Become a student and expert in 'doing good.'

You'll increase your own happiness many times when you do these three simple things.

  • President Xi: China's Model Of Leadership For The World 2016-9-12 03:59

    Taking the Deng high road that has proved spectacularly successful and resilient against shocks and setbacks is the smart choice.  Blend that with pragmatism and you get compounded successes over successes, all in record time.  We can say the Deng formula made China the first multi-trillionaire developing country.

  • President Xi: China's Model Of Leadership For The World 2016-9-5 20:40

    I, also, have been an admirer of President Xi. Also of President Obama. However, I am getting impatient while I wait for them to come to the general strategic agreement between China and the USA that can almost guarantee world peace. I understand the internal political problems that make this difficult for Obama (the American right, Zionists, the Republicans, the need to ensure Clinton's victory and regain control of the Senate). What Xi's domestic problems are I'm not sure. I do know, however, that if Obama offered to withdraw US forces from South Korea now. Clinton might lose the election. I consider the occupation of Korea to be 1. An expensive nuisance to the US. 2. A threatening encroachment on China's sea exits. 3. An excellent card to trade for favors from China. (There truly is no sense for the US to ever IMAGINE defending the ROK. It is up to China to handle that peninsula!)
