What does it mean to be truly happy?
Happiness is essential to life. It’s important and it’s important. Most people can do anything… But what is real happiness?
Here are some ideas below:
Follow your purpose in life
Knowing what you want to achieve in life is the essence of feeling satisfied. Only then can you work to achieve it. The goals you set should have a purpose.
Have the work of your dreams
You may want to exercise professionally, with a formal education, relevant skills, and work experience, so that you have a job or profession of your choice. This can be your key achievement.
Live by your own conditions
You could be someone (like me) who likes to work from home with flexibility or maybe be an entrepreneur, starting your own business. What about blogging, YouTube, a podcast, or the Instagram influencer?
Being in a good relationship
When it comes to happiness, it is natural to think about relationships. People around you are key. They can also affect how you feel. Your life partner plays an important role in your life. However, when you face difficult times, make yourself feel better! On the other hand, many people decide to remain single by choice.
‘To enjoy good health, to bring true happiness to one’s family, to bring peace to all, one must first discipline and control one’s mind. If a man can control his mind he can find the way to Enlightenment, and all wisdom and goodness will come to him naturally. ’- Buddha
Having goals that are within your reach often helps to ensure your happiness. For example, when you do things without expecting revenge, you are truly happy with the person you helped. If they don’t give you back, you don’t have to worry about it. You know that you support this person with all your heart.
‘In my life I have learned that real happiness comes from giving. Helping others along the way gives you a sense of identity. I think love is what we all want. I have never met anyone who has never been a better person in love. ’- Marla Gibbs
The external search usually refers to a number of material objects. For example, if you wanted a higher salary, worked for it, and eventually got a raise, at some point in time, you may not have much value. You start to take it for granted and get used to it.
‘Happiness, real happiness, is an inner quality. It is an attitude. When your mind is at peace, you are happy. If your mind is calm, but you have nothing else, you can be happy. If you have everything the world has to offer – pleasure, possessions, energy – but you lack peace of mind, you will never be happy. ‘- Dada Vaswani
There are endless ways to feel happy or not, so I can keep going. The main point is that everyone is different. However, true happiness comes from within!
In short, we all want a happy life. Fortunately, much (if not all) depends on our approach and our state of health. Therefore, choose happiness by seeing what you already have, while working on your goals and aspirations.
