One step closer to your happiness

“To love yourself means putting your desires and emotions first. It means take the actions required for your happiness”

If you have learnt to love yourself you are one step closer to your happiness. To find happiness you need to cease worrying about things which are beyond your control. It is important to accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different but because you have made the decision to make the changes in your own life. 

But you need to understand that happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions. Happy people plan actions, they don’t plan results. What actions are you planning to take to be happy? And it doesn’t end with planning, planning is just the beginning. Happiness is achieved when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony. To think is easy, to say may even be easier, to do is usually a challenge. Yet, the only joy in the world is to begin. To begin to do something that you have planned.

When you begin you are one step closer. One thing to keep in mind is that success is NOT the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. It is not doing what one loves that you find happiness, sometimes you just need to start liking what you do- then you end up loving what you do- and in turn find happiness. 

Remember, happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.
