Being happy is the number one way to improve your life. Why?
People like being around people who are happy. Kids do especially. Happy people like what they do for a living whether it is inside or outside the home. They are not metaphorically fighting their way upstream even if the elements are against them.
They are likely to be highly motivated with their own enthusiasm to continually better themselves. They are good listeners, make better team players and are more creative. Because they are happy they have more energy so they get more done.
If you don’t believe me – think about a time when you were happy, relaxed and enthusiastic about your life?
Now think about your own life or someone you know you does not fit that definition. How would you describe them? Did they leave you feeling drained and lethargic? Were they relaxed or stressed? Did you enjoy their company? And did you admire them? Which would you choose to be around?
I can guarantee you that it would be the happy person. Lets face it someone who is serious, consumed with their own or others problems are not great company. Unhappy people often feel victimised by others and are unlikely to be solution orientated. It can also be very contagious.
So to ensure your own success in whatever you are trying to achieve….whether it is cooking dinner tonight or planning for that important business meeting – be happy. It is really the number one way you can improve your life. You will also make others around you happy too….as happiness is also contagious.
