Most people believe that you need to work harder to find success. When you have found success, then only you would be happy.
Don’t you notice that when you are successful, you always want more? For instance, you wanted the latest and fastest Mercedes. You worked hard on it and finally you were able to buy the car. You were happy for the first six months, and then you feel indifferent towards the car. You wanted a bigger, faster car. Probably now you wanted the latest Bugatti Veyron or something. You see, if you choose this path, happiness doesn’t last very long.
Contrary to believe, you actually need to be happy in order to be successful. You need to enjoy what you are doing. Research shows that if you are happy with what you are doing, you tend to be more energetic, more productive and more successful.
The key thing is to train our brain to think positively. Here are a few tips of changing from negative thinking towards positive thinking. For the next 21 consecutive days, you need to:
1) Write down 3 things you are grateful everyday. For instance, I am happy for the tasty dinner that mum had cooked for me, for having a lovely and understanding wife and for having a cute little baby girl.
2) Jot down our journal one positive / happy things that you have experience for the last 24 hours. For example, I am happy that I can go back early from work today!
4) Meditate or find a place of solace for a couple of minutes. Be alone and reflect upon yourself.
5) Do one random act of kindness (ARK) everyday. Any small ARK does matter!
Give yourself a try and see it for yourself. Good luck and all the best!
