The key to a fruitful life is to seek happiness. We don't know where to start so it's our objective here to point out what you should do in order for you to be happy. All we need to do is to observe five important pointers that will make sure that we obtain this goal.
We have to know how to put a high price on our own heads. We have to know our self worth. If you don't know what your actual value is, you'll never be happy. In order for you to start with this pointer, you have to first learn how to love yourself. You might ask, “How will I love myself?” Well, we start off by taking care of it. You have to know what is best for you. Eat the right food, practice the right habits. Take a bath every day. Buy only the best for yourself. When we show our appreciation to someone, we get them the best that we can afford. Don't treat yourself cheaply. You deserve only the best. You should buy clothes that are worthy of your personality. Get only the best food, the best gadgets and the best phone service that your money can buy. Understand your self-worth. The person who will definitely love you for who you are is yourself. If you don't love yourself, then who will?
Think Good, Do Good
Make sure that the thoughts that go around your head are always good. Fill your mind with pleasant thoughts. Pleasant thoughts help you relax and at the same time they'll help you avoid negative actions. Avoid thinking that other people will do you harm. Never think or do bad actions against other people. Make sure also that the dealings you make don't harm anyone. Make your actions worthy of your line of thinking. People with good thoughts and good actions are rewarded by a reciprocal action from the person who receives your action.
Learn To Forgive
People make mistakes. Some of them may commit an action which you don't appreciate. When that happens, it's okay to let them know that you didn't like what they did. But you have to make sure that you are open to forgiveness. Never bear a grudge against your fellowmen. Move forward and continue with life without any chips on your shoulder. It will make you feel better when you bump elbows with the same person who wronged you in a crowded room. You won't feel awkward and you'll have the chance to move around freely rather than keep an ill feeling and make your surroundings appear too small for both of you.
Don't Hurt Others
The more people you harm in your life, the smaller your world becomes. You won't cross paths with someone you harmed because of your personal fear of retaliation from them. It would be best that you never attempt to do any physical or emotional harm to anyone around you. This will make sure that you will be able to voice out how you feel about them without them hurting you as well. It makes you feel nice to walk in a neighborhood where you know no one will harm you. So do the same for others.
Have a positive mentality. Never entertain negative thoughts because it won't make you sleep well at night. Entertain only positive thoughts about others and at the same time the actions you make. Everybody loves an optimist. If you know that you will succeed in an endeavor, it means that you've already won half of the battle. Accept failures in a positive way and keep moving forward. Once you observe these five pointers to personal happiness you'll get the intrinsic feeling that goes with each one of them.
