Determine why you are unhappy

Determine why you are unhappy

There could be a million different reasons, and it’s up to you to identify them. 

Whatever they are, just know that you aren’t going to find true happiness until you first single out what the problem is.

If you are unhappy

... you have 2 options:

  • You can complain about it and hope it magically changes.
  • You can set out to make a change.

If you are unhappy you owe it to yourself to make a change -- life is too short to delay any longer.

Change your attitude

Negative thoughts will only generate negativity and unhappiness. If you are constantly having a negative outlook, what do you expect will happen?

You could change that by shifting your attitude and understanding that you are in full control, and fully capable of changing your situation.

Create a plan to reach happiness

Excuses are made to justify remaining miserable. Eliminate all self-doubt out of your mind and commit to developing a plan to become happy. 

Determine what your ultimate end goal is and reverse engineer the steps you will need to take to reach it. 

Take action and don’t look back

Simply taking action doesn’t guarantee results; your journey to happiness could include mistakes, rejection and disappointment. 

But if you don’t take action there is only one guarantee, and that is your situation will never improve and you will remain unhappy.

IDEAS

If you have a few projects at a time, focus on one. Work with intense focus. Do not allow distractions.

When you feel your motivation slows down, switch to another project.

Money is related to happiness. If you don’t have enough money to feed your family, more money will more likely increase your happiness. 

But once you have met all of the basic needs, money is less influential.
