Practice Gratitude – Habits of Happy People
The power of gratitude should never be underestimated, if you are reading this on a smart phone or laptop you are better off than 99% of people in the world today.
Some quick facts.
A quarter of humanity lives without electricity.
Over 50% of the world lives on less than $2.50 a day.
Over 80% lives on less than than $10 a day.
Around 1 Billion people entered the 21st unable to read or even write their own name.
It is therefore quite comfortable to presume you are in the top 10% of humanity.
That means you are much better off than 6.8 billion people.
That’s 6,840,000,000 individual human beings much worse off than you.
A number so large it is hard to fathom, but the point of all of this is to remind you that not only do we live in the safest, most technologically advanced and opportunity rich time in the entire history of humanity, we are utterly blessed to live comfortably too.
Many highly successful people such as Tony Robbins, Oprah Winfrey, Richard Branson and John Paul DeJoria just to name a few, use the power of gratitude to not only drive them to chase their dreams with tenacity but live happily.
People often say they wished they won the lottery, without realising they already have. The odds of being born this century and living above the poverty line are equivalent to winning the lottery 10 times!
How happy would you be if you won the lottery 10 times today?
Choose Happiness – Habits of Happy People
The human mind is an incredible thing it can torture drug addicts and the mentally ill. It can figure out how to take you to the moon or cure disease. It could even design a new creative masterpiece the likes of which the world has never seen.
One thing that we seem to forget it does, is that every day it determines whether you feel happy or sad. Well the good news is you control your own brain! Yes it does have a ‘mind’ of it own sometimes, but I’m sure you can recall a time you had to choose between a healthy meal and an unhealthy meal. And you chose the healthy option.
Well what you have displayed is mental control, you should put aside a small amount of time each morning even 15-30 minutes to write down these things;
– I Am Grateful For..
What am I grateful for? Who am I grateful for? How much worse off could I be? Write everything you are grateful for, this is a powerful way to start the day and has been proven to improve the quality of life of the average person. Whom often is so buried in the moment by moment analysis of their own lives they forget just how lucky they are.
– My Goals Are..
What are my goals? For today, this week, this month, this year and this decade. It is important to have purpose otherwise we would just lay in bed all day. Whether it’s helping others or becoming mega rich you must figure out what your goals are. Write them down and read them to yourself every morning. A strong sense of purpose will light a fire in your soul.
– I Decide To..
And finally decide to be happy, no matter how you feel, what your going though or how tired you are. Think positively, speak kindly, smile and practise gratitude. Even if you are in a dark place, this daily practice will rewire your brain and soon enough it will become habit. But you don’t have to stop there why not make it a daily ritual and go on to live a happier more productive life than you’ve ever imagined?
Live Life – Habits of Happy People
If it was the last day on Earth would you want to sit on the couch and catch up on that TV show? Of course not. Go do something new today. Go on an adventure, explore somewhere new, go up to someone you like and tell them they are beautiful and that they should join you on your new adventure! Even if you are rejected (trust me I have been many times) you should be ecstatic knowing that you were brave enough to try and I can’t tell you how many people I was rejected by, came up to me later because they were intrigued by someone so happy in the face of rejection that they had to know what made me tick. I can assure you 95% of people will never do something so bold in their whole lives. Why can’t you be different? be bold, be special, live & think differently. Don’t grow old and bitter because you never put yourself out there.
