Take Control of Your Mind

To take control of your mind do the following:

  • Conquer negative thinking by treating yourself like a friend when negative thoughts come. Be empathetic towards yourself.
  • Challenge your negative thoughts to see if they are a true representation of who you are.
  • Write a brief story about your struggles, then rewrite it from a neutral observer perspective. For example:

Your struggle: I have no money.

From a neutral observation: Everyone struggles with money from time to time.

Create your own happiness (don't sit back and wait for it)

Every second you waste waiting for happiness is a second you could have been using to create it.

The happiest people aren't the luckiest, wealthiest or best-looking; the happiest people are those who make an effort to be happy.

If you want to create your own happiness, you have to start by making it a priority. 

We work so hard to avoid letting other people down, but we so often do so at the expense of our own happiness.

Happiness is a state of mind. Specifically, it is a state of “well-being and contentment.”

This is the reason some people say, “Don’t pursue happiness, seek joy. Happiness is fickle and fading, joy remains forever.”

But this short-term definition of happiness is not how everyone understands the word. Some define it to mean long-term satisfaction.

The long-term feeling of life satisfaction is most experienced when we embrace the emotion of joy in the here and now.

Happiness

Happiness, like other emotions, is not something you acquire. It is something you are.
This implies that happiness is not a goal that you can reach. It is a side effect of a particular set of ongoing life experiences.
