Think positive, cultivate optimism, and choose to be happy

You make life happen, it does not happen to you, attitude is everything, and life is 10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent how we react to it. We are in charge of our attitude, if you are waiting for someone else to make you happy, you are missing out,

 

Set goals

Make happiness a priority, give your ideas and dreams a chance, the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step, break your goals down in smaller steps and think what you can do right now to achieve them. Take accountability for your life and learn, always focus on the possibility of a positive outcome. Make a vision board, Give your dreams a chance, face problems head on, if you want to try something new in your life, you will never be 100% sure that it will work but you can always be 100% that it will not work if you don’t try

Practice Gratitude

Count your blessings, enjoy the things that you have, appreciate where you are, notice how wealthy you are right now, keep a gratitude journal, wake up one minute earlier and practice gratitude

Forgive

Forgiveness is the best remedy. It does not mean you’re erasing the past, or forgetting what happened. It means you’re letting go of the resentment and pain, and instead choosing to learn from the incident and move on with your life.

Nurture Relationships Be a good listener, help others around you, care about people, tell those you love how much they mean to you, and spend time with the right people, those who love and appreciate you and encourage you to improve your life

Turn envy and jealousy into energy

Don’t compare yourself to others, compete against an earlier version of yourself, be inspired by other people, appreciate them and learn from them, don’t over think, notice what you like about other people and tell them, cheer for other people’s achievements, what goes around, comes around. Practice acts of kindness
