Everyone wishes to live a life that is full of happiness and dreams of having all comforts that life has to offer. Living a happy and successful life requires no specific qualities. Everyone has their own way of defining both happiness and success. A rich might be successful but never happy, while a poor might be happy but never successful. A CEO of a company might look successful to all his employees, but maybe he never felt the same way himself. While an employee might not be as successful as the CEO, but maybe he might be leading a more happy life and feels already more successful.
These are words that can never be limited with specified boundaries. Life itself has plenty to offer, and the owner of LIFE has his own perceptions. But at the same time, when you look into the lives of people who are deemed successful and happy at identical periods, you draw certain common traits that lead you to the idea of certain tips that might help an individual to live a better life.
1. Mentally and Physically Sound
You should be physically and mentally active to live a successful life. By reading the heading, one might not go into depth. The words are so common in everybody’s life that all our elders always tell us this one specific thing to achieve in our lives for having peace at all times.
Health is wealth. What would money or anything do for you if you are always sick and tired? There is nothing to talk about if you do not take this seriously. You can never enjoy your life to the fullest if you are physically ill or frail. When you have the energy, your willpower is stronger, and so is your confidence level. And when you have the energy, you can accomplish more than most people who treat their health lightly. But how does somebody maintain mental health?
The answer lies in the simple words of maintaining a BALANCE. Do not push yourself to limits where you feel you might get into undue overthinking. This not only puts pressure onto oneself but also gets you into habits which are never the solution but only an illusion.
The majority of smoking and alcohol addicts are those who have stressed up themselves without a specific reason. Seriously, you need to get out of that shell where mental calmness is always compromised. Get yourself a life where tensions are only considered a normal part of life and know that LIFE IS NOT A BED OF ROSES for anybody. You are not an exception.
2. Look Below
The two keywords to a happy and content life are LOOK BELOW. When you face difficulties in life, know that there are people who are having a worse scenario. If you are blessed with both eyes, you are already better than 285 million people in the world who have different vision problems and 35 million people of the world who are blind.
Imagine if you were to live happily without your sight. Wouldn’t that be something to relax your anxieties whenever they arise? When faced with troubles, always find people who have comparatively more severe cases. And then look towards the sky and say thanks to your Almighty. You would already feel better.
3. Set yourself a Goal
Get yourself a pen and paper. Write down everything you want. Then continue drawing conclusions. Write down where you want yourself to be after ten years or maybe 20 years. Then begin contracting years. Tell yourself why you want to be there, and then how would you achieve all that you’ve written. Continue contracting until you reach today. At this moment, put down the pen and paper and take a deep breath.
Nobody has ever achieved success in the blink of an eye. It costs you your comfort, your peace, and maybe your relations. But until you do not know what to do and how to do it, you would always be lead astray. Don’t be materialistic in setting your goals because my friend would never satisfy your instincts. They are a delusion. Keep your goals that drive your passion. This would be your highway to happiness and success.
4. Live in the moment
What good would today be, if you keep thinking about tomorrow? The one bad and good thing about time is, IT PASSES. If at this moment it is good, enjoy it because it would soon be taken away. And if at this moment it is bad, know that this too would pass. What would be left behind is how you manage to go through it. Don’t be stagnant at any moment in life but also learn to enjoy whatever life has to offer. Learn to live in the moment and always keep that smile running onto your face.
5. Be positive
Once again. Take a pen and an A4 Paper. In the center of the paper, put a dot. Once you are done, ask yourself a question. What do you see on the paper?
The answer to the majority of the people would be a dot. And then imagine that the same person tends to avoid 99.99% white space around that single dot. That is how difficulties in life overshadow 99% of happiness in our lives. Stay as positive as you could because one single bad day would not destroy years of happiness in your lives. One dot can never succeed over the entirely white space.
These are a few of the basic tips in life that if a person strives to possess would always keep them happy. Happiness follows success, and you do not have to be a billionaire to be successful. Success is always a ladder. You can maybe miss a step or two, but you can never jump up the entire ladder to reach the top. So stop over stressing yourself. Live happily and enjoy your life to the fullest.
