We don’t become happy by changing our situations – We become happy by changing our mindset

Happiness Life Coaching MindsetIn this world, each and every one of us wants to be happy.

Whether we are consciously aware of it or not, but everyone is looking for happiness. We are in constant search of people and things that we think will make us happy. While we actively pursue this goal of finding happiness, often times we end-up feeling disappointed, frustrated and angry when our expectations are not fulfilled.
So what is the “real” happiness then? Where is it hiding? Will the “real” happiness please stand-up?

People normally seek happiness in two ways – either externally or internally.

  • External – Happiness we perceive through our five working senses – Touch, Smell, Vision, Taste and Hear. We also use our conscious Mind to experience happiness.
  • Internal – An experience obtained through proper alignment of our whole sense of being.

Two major differences between the external and internal happiness are

a) time duration and
b) the experience itself.
External happiness is mostly temporary, short-lived and the experience itself may not necessarily bring an ongoing satisfaction. On the other hand, internal happiness is long-lived and the experience brings deep satisfaction, sense of being and peace.
Happiness is a state of mind and what people consider as happiness varies from person to person. Happiness can be roughly measured through – how positive, balanced we are and whether we are adding value & positively impacting people’s lives. Happiest people possess qualities such as peacefulness, compassion, tolerance, and excellence.
Happiness is an inherent quality within us. It is pointless to run after and seek happiness from the external sources. We get caught up with so many mundane issues and often demand others to keep us happy. We try so hard to keep others happy but how much time and effort we are spending to create our own “real” happiness?
Happiness is an inside job! We need to become more conscious and experience it. Real happiness is contagious and we become a vehicle for spreading joy, peace, and love to everyone around us.
Bringing happiness into our lives involves striking a good alignment between our mind, body, and spirit. It is quite important to take care of different aspects of our wellness that includes physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social, and intellectual well-being.
Spending more time with like-minded, positive people and choo
sing a work and home environment that feeds harmony, togetherness, and joy is the recipe for success.
