DO YOU KNOW WHAT WE’RE ALL LOOKING FOR?
I ask people all the time what they want out of life. Most people don’t know; they don’t know because they’re “too busy” with life. This doesn’t make any sense to me. It’s like saying you don’t have time to get gas because you’re too busy driving.
Then there are those who want a bigger house, a nicer car, the newest iPod or cell phone; others want a new wardrobe or a good job. There’s nothing wrong with wanting nice things but you have to understand WHY you want those things. Most people want those things to feel happy, confident or secure.
Guess what? You can have those feelings right now. You can be happy right now; it’s a choice. THAT’S what we’re all looking for…feelings or a state of mind. If you CAN’T be happy, just smile for one minute. It’s not what’s happening around you or to you, it’s what’s happening INSIDE you. When you have the right mindset, nobody can take that away.
Cultivate gratitude and happiness every morning and you will set the tone for the rest of the day. Here’s how you do it…
As soon as you wake in the morning, write down three things that you are either grateful for and/or that make you happy. When you write those things down, really FEEL how grateful and happy you are; visualize that they are always a part of you. Take deep breaths while you are doing this.
If you get in the habit of doing this exercise every morning, you will increase your chances of having more “good” days versus “bad” days.
