Don’t Waste Time! 9 Facts Until You Reach Your Happiness
“We all have a choice, whether it’s to sit down and wait to be happy, or take charge and start doing things that bring happiness into our life.” If I’ve got it right, this quote from David Niven by the author is a perfect example of how we should live our lives. Why? Let’s think about it and discuss it in the comments section below.
We always say that happiness is the ultimate goal of any activity, but actually, we have to do things that we find happiness. We are happy when we reach our goals; we are happy when we have a plan for the things we want to achieve in life; we are happy when we get to spend time with the people we love. So, this post is about the things that we should be doing to make sure that we keep ourselves happy.
You can achieve more things with a positive mindset, therefore, if you have already reached your goal, make sure that you don’t just live that life and leave the things behind.
- Be happy in simple things “There’s a simplicity and purity in doing what is right in our own lives, a sense of peace and contentment, the joy of doing a small thing well, and feel we’ve done what we were put on the earth to do. There’s no greater and no more wonderful joy than in just being alive and living life.” –David Niven David said in his interview that there is no point in doing things like travelling, taking pictures, or going to the gym, or going on a holiday, if you don’t have a passion for it. Instead of doing it for the sake of doing it, make sure that you are doing it because you genuinely enjoy it. Don’t just go to the gym for the sake of doing so. It’s the same with everything, if you really love doing it, you will find joy in it. It doesn’t have to be huge things; it could be things like playing with your kids or your pet. You just need to find joy in the things that you are doing in your life.
- Keep your mind positive It is very easy to get frustrated when things don’t go the way you want them to. You may start to think that people are trying to pull you down and stop you from being positive. It is important to understand that life is not perfect and people will probably not understand what you are going through. In order to stay positive, you need to believe that you have what it takes to succeed and that you have a bright future ahead of you.
- Don’t stress People are stressed because they have a lot on their plate. You can start to worry about things that you don’t need to worry about. Take your time to analyze your problem before trying to solve it. By taking your time, you are able to find the best solution that works for you. Do not stress yourself to the point that you end up in hospital.
- Be yourself You need to be yourself to succeed. Don’t try to please other people by being someone that you are not. You should be yourself, let your true character show through, and people will respect you for it.
- Keep your goals in sight You need to keep your goals in mind in order to know when you have reached your milestones. Keep in mind that reaching one milestone doesn’t mean that the road has been finished. It’s just the start of your journey. If you don’t keep your goals in mind, you are not motivated to get to where you want to be.
- Find what you love When you find yourself doing things that you don’t really enjoy, you will eventually lose motivation to keep going. You need to make sure that you find your passion in life. It’s best to take some time to find out what you love to do.
- Be an active listener The most important person that you should be active listening to is yourself. You need to take the time to read your own body language to see what needs to be changed.
- Always have a plan Create a plan for your life. Put yourself on a road map. Your plans will help you stay on track and you’ll be more successful at achieving your goals.
- Be Positive You need to stay positive. If you let negative thoughts bring you down, you will not be able to achieve anything.

It can evolve. The more happiness we have, the more opportunities we have to make that happiness last. Here are 9 facts until you reach your happiness.
