“If you want something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done.”
Shawn Anchor has a great video on the simplicity of how the brain accepts happiness:
Tips for Happiness done over 21 days:
- Write three things your grateful for each day.
- Send one letter of thanks, gratitude, or appreciation to someone a day.
- Journaling about one positive thing each 24 hours.
To all the naysayers. I know. I understand. I’ve been there. It isn’t always your fault. It isn’t always anyone’s fault. There are definitely situations, personal or professional, that inhibit you from living your life to its fullest potential.
Yet, Ralph Waldo Emerson has a great quote that states,
“Once you make a decision, the Universe conspires to make it happen.”
It is only until you truly believe you deserve happiness, not then but now, that your external world will begin to reflect your inner manifestation.
Take a chance. Try the ideas above. Watch the video.
I mean what’s the worst that’s going to happen? You will be exactly where you started. What’s the best that will happen? You’ll begin down the road to happiness.
That’s a good gamble.
