When you look around at the friends and family members who always seem happy, do you find yourself comparing them, wondering exactly what it is they’re doing to live such fulfilling lives? What they’re doing likely isn’t the constant – what they’re not doing is what you should be looking at.
They Don’t Put Their Dreams Aside
Unhappy people become consumed with life’s little details and forget about their hopes and dreams. Happy people focus on their dreams and create goals to help them move closer to the places they want to be in their lives.
They Don’t Care about Others
The don’t care about what others think, that is – not too much, anyway. We’re all human and care a little bit, but happy people don’t place as much value on the opinions of others. They are open to guidance, wisdom, and perspective.
They Don’t Gossip
Happy people spend very little time talking about other people. They mind their business and don’t waste time comparing their lives to the lives of others. There is no need to judge others or look for faults. They focus on themselves and those they care about.
They Don’t Do Things They Don’t Like
It sounds silly when you think about it, doesn’t it? We all have day-to-day tasks we don’t love (laundry, anyone?), but there is no reason to waste your time on hobbies, careers, or relationships they don’t find enjoyable or fulfilling.
They Don’t Live in the Past
Whatever happened in the past is over and done with. You can’t change whatever made you unhappy yesterday. You can focus on what will make today and tomorrow the best days of your life so far.
Live in the now and focus on yourself. You’ll find yourself less worried about what others think and more content with your life as a whole!
